When an invitation to spend the Yule season at Ramsay Castle arrives at the door of the Grant keep, Maddie Grant immediately begins to plan for the journey. But soon, an obstacle emerges, and it comes in the shape of her husband.
Alex Grant refuses to take such a risk with his family. Traveling through the Highlands in the dead of winter is madness, especially with three young bairns. The journey is more perilous than his wife understands.
Yet the idea of gathering the whole family together for the Yule season is just too tempting for Maddie. When Alex commands her to remain in their home, his sharp denial of her request only spurs her plan: She and the children will sneak away while Alex sleeps. By the time her husband wakes and chases them down, they will be closer to Ramsay land than their own.
One adventurous day in the Highlands, for a whole season with family. It’s the perfect plan.
But when a snowstorm hits and turns the adventure into a fight for survival, Maddie finds herself in desperate need of an impossible rescue, and Alex grows increasingly hopeless as he searches for his wife. Luckily, Christmas is a time for miracles, and there are a few angels who might lend the couple a helping hand.
The only son of Logan Ramsay, the man known to all as the Beast of the Highlands, Gavin Ramsay feels a powerful need to prove himself. His sire thinks he’s incapable of leading a mission on his own, but when a young lass goes missing from the clan, Gavin vows to find her. His time has come—if he can avoid being distracted by the missing girl’s sister, Merewen, a sweet yet fierce beauty whose stunning talent with the bow rivals even that of his mother.
Merewen Baird will do anything to save her sister. She’s long admired Gavin, and when he agrees to search for Linet with her, she sets off on a journey with him and several of his cousins. Their search brings them to Inverness, a burgh by the sea, where they discover an underground the likes of which the Ramsay and Grant cousins have never seen. Lasses and lads fight for coin, and there are whispers of a coming shipment of illegal, human, merchandise.
To save Linet and the other lasses and lads, Merewen and Gavin must risk all—including the promise of a future with each other.
Gregor Ramsay has never seen himself as a hero, but when the lass he fancies falls into the clutches of the Channel of Dubh, he’ll do anything he can to save her. Linet Baird will not be sold across the sea on his watch. Together with his cousin Connor, he follows Linet’s trail to Edinburgh, where it’s rumored they’ll find one of the Channel of Dubh’s final headquarters. There’s only one problem: Linet claims she doesn’t wish to be saved.
Although Linet didn’t ask to be kidnapped from Ramsay land, she’s grateful it happened. The dark secret she left behind was destroying her. Even so, it quickly becomes apparent that her protector Sela has limited power to help her. Just like her, Sela is in the grips of a larger organization, one controlled by cruel, capricious men who lack any form of conscience. When Gregor Ramsay offers to save her, she’s tempted to trust the lad she once fancied, but to do so, she will need to face the trauma of her past.
The open road has tempted Padraig Grant his whole life. He’s not suited for life in the lists, training warriors for the battlefield. His calling is somewhere over the next hill. Or maybe it’s right in front of him, in the alluring form of Gisela Matheson. If only she weren’t already betrothed to Donald MacKinnie, the Scourge of Black Isle.
Gisela remembers when Donald was courteous and honorable. But the man has changed, turning cruel and possessive. Even if her life hadn’t been thrown into chaos by the Matheson Curse, she wouldn’t want to become his bride. Padraig, on the other hand…well, he’s one she can’t get enough of. He brings light to her world, and she might think about marrying him, if he didn’t have a wanderer’s soul. Marrying another would solve her problem with Donald, though.
Driven by jealousy, Donald issues an ultimatum: Either Padraig leaves Black Isle and Gisela, or innocents die. Padraig must choose between leaving his true love to save lives or stay and protect her and see more people hurt. Suddenly the distant horizon isn’t quite so tempting. But staying might be worse.
But are their differences too great to overcome?
Jennet Ramsey has lost her dearest friend. Not to death, but to marriage. The inseparable girls grew up traveling with Jennet’s mother, the most renowned healer in Scotland. Now alone, Jennet feels adrift with no compass. She’s a talented healer but lacks self-confidence and is considered socially inept and cold due to her analytical mind. With her friend married, Jennet is isolated and wonders if she’ll ever find her own happiness or true purpose on Black Isle. Then, when summoned back home to cure the mysterious illness ailing her father, she fails miserably, and her father lashes out at her. Leaving the Ramsey keep in humiliation, she’s abducted. Resourceful and clever, she claims to be a witch and uses trickery to make her captors believe she’s cursed them, fooling all but one of them, an evil man whose vile intentions could leave her dead.
Ethan Matheson is considered odd. Intensely loyal, he’s a fierce warrior and deadly with a dagger. A born voyager skilled with direction and tracking, he could lead large groups of men, but prefers the solitude of the stars because they never change or deceive him. However, one woman on Black Isle makes him rethink his stance on being alone—if only he could forget his past and learn to trust again. Encouraged by his brothers, Ethan insists he escort Jennet on her trip to Ramsey keep, hoping to have a chance to get to know her. But a misunderstanding between them has Ethan leaving early, feeling, once again, that he will never find someone to share his life with. As he rides, he can’t rid himself of the foreboding sensation Jennet is in trouble and rushes back in time to rescue her.
Soon after they arrive at Black Isle, news of her ‘witchcraft’ spreads and she is to be tried and put to death. But Ethan will not lose his one chance at happiness—no matter what he must do.

Worse, as heir to the chieftain, now Marcas must be both leader and savior to his people–but they are losing faith in him. Already there are murmurs that his poor decisions brought the curse, causing him to doubt his own ability to head the clan. But when his small daughter takes sick, Marcas has no problem making a decision: he must find a healer–one gifted enough to save his little lass’s life. And he will beg, barter, or steal one if necessary

Her over-protective father, a former spy and feared lethal agent for the Crown, will come for her. Her captor must be daft to kidnap the daughter of Logan Ramsay. But when Brigid realizes a child’s life is in danger, she softens toward her kidnapper, and vows to help him. As they work together, Brigid can’t deny the traitorous attraction she feels nor that she’s falling in love. But how could Marcas ever love her when she’s not the great healer he thought…?
Can Brigid save Marcas’ daughter’s life before her own father arrives and rains hell down from the Highlands?
From the moment he first sees Sela Seton, Connor Grant is drawn to the woman known as the Ice Queen. Although his cousins assume she’s as guilty as the men she serves, the unscrupulous smugglers of the Channel of Dubh, Connor is convinced she’s being coerced. His mother was abused and controlled, and he suspects the same is true of Sela.
For five years, Sela has known only misery, with one exception: her sweet daughter, Claray. But her love for her bairn has been used against her in the worst way possible—the men who run the Channel use Claray to ensure Sela does their bidding. The last thing she’s liable to do is trust a man, any man, let alone fall in love with one.

A lass in desperate need.
Will destiny be on their side in Scotland’s War of Independence?
Destiny sent the famous warrior Alexander Grant three grandsons on the same day, at the same time. Or so the story goes. Alasdair Grant, one of the three, struggles to believe he has any special purpose. The future has never seemed bleaker for Scotland—or for Alasdair’s own family. And yet, he cannot help but wonder if fate has reached for him at last when his grandsire sends him to MacLintock Castle to help Emmalin MacLintock, the very lass who has possessed his thoughts.
Emmalin would have been laird of her castle had she not been forced to marry a controlling English baron. Her heart longs for a different life, a life in which she leads her people and a handsome, strong Highlander stands by her side. A Highlander like Alasdair Grant. When the baron dies unexpectedly, Emmalin is relieved, but that feeling quickly fades when an English garrison shows up to storm her castle. Worse, there’s evidence someone in her life might be in league with them.
Alasdair and one of his cousins arrive in Emmalin’s hour of need, giving Emmalin a glimpse of what life might be like with him by her side. If Alasdair can open his wounded heart to Emmalin, it will bring him one step closer to his destiny, but he’ll need to have faith in himself—and in Scotland—to do so.
Elshander Grant is a warrior who can no longer fight. His grandsire, the great Alexander Grant, has always insisted that he and his cousins are destined to be great warriors for Scotland, but Els no longer believes it’s true. Memories from battle plague him every time he raises his sword, and he fears one day he’ll hesitate at the wrong moment. He’s almost desperate enough to run from his destiny when Joya, the beautiful spy who caught his attention years before, rides back into his life.
Joya has devoted her life to serving the cause of Robert the Bruce, the rightful King of Scotland. It’s a lonely existence, one that requires great personal sacrifice at times, but she’s never felt ashamed of her decision to serve her country—until she’s reunited with her long-lost brother and he instantly pushes her away for her “unseemly” profession. Lost and alone, separated from the Bruce’s other followers, Joya finds her way to Grant Castle, the one place she knows she’ll be safe.
When Els promises Joya he’ll help her find her brother again, neither of them expect where it will lead: an incident that threatens to tear the Grant family in two, plus the couple’s direct involvement in a pivotal battle between the English and Bruce’s forces. Soon the warrior who cannot fight will need to stand up for everything he holds dear, including the woman who’s stolen his heart.
Can he measure up?

So when he’s given an opportunity to travel with her and Alex, he immediately takes it.
Their purpose is simple, but the journey soon spirals out of control, each challenge sparking more contention—and passion—between Derric and Dyna. Fate seems to keep throwing them together, but can two such fierce, solitary souls find a way to coexist?
