- Pub. Date:
While journeying home from Scotland, Princess Mercedes of Alden’s coach is set upon and her personal guard killed. Barely escaping with her life, she seeks help at a nearby inn. But with no money and looking little better than a beggar, the townsfolk think her claims of being a princess to be nothing more than a far-fetched tale. Utterly forsaken, Mercedes wonders what is to become of her.
After years of soldiering, dispossessed Laird Daniel MacKinnon is finally coming home. At an inn he is confronted by a bedraggled young woman claiming to be of royal blood. Daniel doesn’t believe her wild tale, but when she asks for his protection, he agrees to serve as her bodyguard—in turn she promises to reward him handsomely once they reach London. But Mercedes is still being pursued by ruthless hunters whose motives remain unclear.
As the danger increases, so does the desire she and Daniel feel for each other, until the two of them must face the greatest danger of all—falling in love.

What People are Saying About This
Praise for Her Highness and the Highlander
"Warren continues her impeccably written Princess Brides trilogy with a thrillingly romantic, intrigue-infused tale of a blue-blooded royal who discovers both her one true love and the inner resources she never imagined she possessed while taking a walk on the wilder side of life." Booklist
“The second installment in this delightful series has just as much charm and joy as every other one of Warren’s novels. A bit of It Happened One Night mixed with Scottish atmosphere and engaging characters (including an adorable dog) make this read irresistible.” –Romantic Times
“Utterly delightful historical romance. Daniel is sigh worthy and protective, too delicious for any respectable fan of Scottish heroes to resist….A real pleasure to read.” –Affaire de Coeur
