Description

Lisa Berne's Penhallow Dynasty series continues as a Highlander marries against his will--

and discovers he may have found the perfect bride

Alasdair Penhallow, laird of his clan and master of Castle Tadgh, is forced to end his carefree bachelorhood, thanks to an ancient decree that requires him to marry. But Alasdair's search for a biddable wife comes to a screeching halt when Fate serves up Fiona Douglass. Prickly as a thistle, Fiona challenges him at every turn, rendering herself surprisingly irresistible. Her love would be a prize indeed . . . if Alasdair could accept it.

Fiona gave her heart once, and doesn't plan to repeat that folly. Yet she finds herself drawn to Alasdair's intelligence and strength, and the passion he incites goes well beyond her expectations for what's only a marriage of expedience. Despite herself, she's falling in love with her husband.

But there's a high wall between them--and Fiona's not sure it can ever be torn down.
