Julian MacTavish's honor made him guard a friend's secret. But his lies to keep that vow make it difficult to prove his faithfulness as a husband. When a terrible inferno scars Patience's body and mind, she becomes a recluse. She hides not only from her friends in the Marlborough Set, but her husband as well, thus further widening the divide between them. But it's her lack of trust, not her disfigurement, which sends Julian home alone to the highlands of Scotland convinced he's lost her forever.
Forgiveness in the face of death comes easily to Patience MacTavish, but the thought of being a burden to her husband does not. When a twist of fate takes Julian's sight from him, Patience returns home hoping to make amends for not having faith in him. Pity is the last thing Julian wants from anyone, especially his wife, and it's his turn to question her sincerity. Now, Patience must convince her husband that she's come home to the highlands for no other reason than love, even if it means arranging her highlander's seduction.
WARNING: Book contains a proud, Highlander Laird unwilling to surrender his heart a second time, and a half-Scottish heroine who, like most members of the Rockwood clan, is up to the challenge of seducing the laird she loves and making him realize she's The Highlander's Woman.

Julian MacTavish is madly in love with his wife as she is with him. When a jealous woman plants seeds of doubt in Patience's mind, they fight and she goes to visit her family. She needs time to think. Can she trust her Highlander? She's a Rockwood and won't give in to fear. Tragedy overwhelms her when a deadly fire sends Caleb and Devin plunging to their death and she is scarred by the flames. Broken in spirit, she hides from Julian even though she still loves him. Can their love survive such a tragedy? Monica Burns has outdone herself. The characters are wonderfully written. I was drawn into their story. I understood their pain and wanted them to overcome all the heartbreak. The Highlander's Woman is such an emotional story. My heart broke. Monica Burns wrote a deeply touching book that brought me to tears. The Reckless Rockwoods series is a keeper.
