This eighteenth-century historical romance novel by bestselling, award-winning author Arnette Lamb tells the sensual tale of Lady Miriam MacDonald, a brilliant diplomat from Queen Anne’s court, and the two admirers she’s torn between while in Scotland.
Though Lady Miriam MacDonald ventured to the Scottish hills seeking peace between the Scots and English, she finds herself torn between the admiration of two very different men: the kindly, awkward laird of Kildalton Castle that became a trusted friend and the dashing, tartan-clad Border Lord that swept her into his arms… and claimed her innocence.
A lifetime of anguish hides behind the disguise of Duncan Kerr, laird of Kildalton by birth, Border Lord by choice. If his true identity is revealed, he could lose not only his future, but the thing he holds most dear—Miriam’s heart.
By day, Miriam strives to establish harmony between two battling nations; by night, she surrenders to forbidden pleasure with the mysterious Border Lord. Does Duncan love Miriam’s heart or is he blinded by the promise of peace she brings to his beloved land? Only the Border Lord, mysterious as the mists of the hills, knows the truth.
Arnette Lamb (1947-1998) was the New York Times bestselling author of Chieftain, Border Lord, and other historical romance novels. She won multiple awards for her writing, including the Romantic Times Best New Historical Author award.
