USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen launches a new series set in the Scottish highlands featuring a warrior laird...and the bride who isn't his.
Hugh McCallum, laird of a remote Scottish clan, has better things to do than court a bride. But when he discovers that he was contracted in marriage as a lad to an English miss with a sizable dowry-one that could provide for his clan-he relents and travels to London to claim his new wife. But when her family balks at their daughter's brutish betrothed, Hugh does what any brute would do: he steals her away in the middle of the night.
Riona is incensed. She's not this hulking warrior's woman. He's stolen the wrong bride but no matter how she protests, Scotland awaits...as does her future as a Hugh's wife. At first all she can hope for is escape, but as time passes and she comes to know Hugh as a leader to his people, something changes. She may be finding a home in the most surprising of place-but with the man who stole her away? A man who enrages her...and makes her heart race?
Hugh realizes his mistake too late-he may have claimed the wrong bride, but his heart already belongs to the beautiful spitfire. Now, he'll have to convince of the future they could have together...if she will just choose to be his.
