Taken by the Scottish Highland Wolf as His Bride
Lady Berthilda Brooke Howard is born to the Earl of Carlisle, with a charmed life in a beautiful castle that her family owns. Her daring nature and free-thinking mind have always caused her family trouble. Sheltered from court intrigue, she believes her life to be boring. When she has to wed John Howard, a cousin and childhood confidant, her traditional values collide with her desire for authenticity and true love. Meanwhile, trouble broils between Scotland and England, until a horde of barbaric highlanders storm her castle, forcing a confrontation. The highlanders' plan to destroy and plunder Carlisle is altered when their leader discovers a greater prize: Her.
Malcolm Sinclair is the laird of clan Sinclair of the highlands. He is known by his people as Wolf for his ruthless cunning. When Brooke is compelled by circumstances to wed the Scottish barbarian against her will, she resists and tests him from the moment she first sets her eyes upon the brave warrior. To her consternation, he appears undeterred by her insults. He is intrigued by her, and anger soon gives way to a peculiar thrill when she beholds his rugged form. Malcolm's gruff gentleness and devotion arouse tenderness within the core of her, even as her budding feelings threaten to overturn everything that she holds dear.
Can Brooke really fall for her enemy?
