From New York Times bestseller Hannah Howell, a classic love story of a Scottish hero too wild to be tamed and the woman he's destined to set free . . . Pleasance Dunstan is used to silently bearing the cruelties put upon her by her thoughtless family. But nothing can prepare her for the greatest indignity of all: being sold into servitude to a man as wild as Tearlach O'Duine. His untamed ways are whispered of throughout town, and he has set his sights on Pleasance to be more than his servant. He will have her in his bed. Pleasance could escape this fate with a word, but her fierce pride keeps her silent. Instead, she follows her new master to the rough lands where he has made a home and finds a world beyond any she has ever known-a world of desire. For though he is her captor, only Tearlach can show her how freeing true passion can be . . . and while her servitude to him will one day end, nothing can stop the binding of their hearts . . . Contains mature themes.
