In 1304, amidst Scotland's continuing war for independence, two
wounded souls are forced on a journey neither wants, resulting in
tragedy and disaster. Battle-hardened, untrusting and son of a
Scottish Chieftain, Duncan MacThomas wants only to see his country
free from English rule. Honor-bound to ensure his clan's financial
future, Duncan reluctantly travels to England to wed a woman he
doesn't want. Wealthy and pampered, Catherine Gillingham
anticipates a marriage to a Duke's son and is dismayed when her
king decrees she must wed a Scotsman, the sort of man all of London
despises. Can these two opposites find love amidst war and lower
their barriers to find the peace they seek within their countries

Wed, 19 Sep 2007 | Review by: Gerri Bowen
As a sequel to Highland Wishes, Her Highland Rogue, picks up the story of Duncan, a Scot, and his arranged marriage to Catherine, an English heiress. The historical events of the time are a part of the story but don't overwhelm; they enhance. Ms Burroughs has again created two likeable characters who overcome initial hostility and fall in love. It takes them a while to voice this to one another, but is worth the wait. Ah, but there remains a villain who must be defeated, and that is satisfying as well. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to Ms Burroughs's next book--hopefully with some of the characters we've come to know
