Frustrated by the out­ra­geous demand from her broth­ers that she choose a hus­band or have one cho­sen for her, Mackenna Hughes blind­folds her­self and vows to wed the first man she touch­es in the cir­cle of eager suit­ors that sur­rounds her. But as she swirls among the vil­lage mer­ry­mak­ers, Macken­na sud­den­ly crash­es into a tow­er­ing, rock-like body… and looks up into the dark pen­e­trat­ing eyes of a total stranger!



Lord Thomas Montclair has been send by King Edward to take over Mackenna’s vil­lage and a long aban­doned cas­tle.  Now he lays claim to the reck­less, scar­let-haired rebel who blind­ly made her choice, yet denies his right to her vil­lage or her­self.  Her brazen courage enchants him, her stub­born pride and fiery beau­ty stir a storm in his blood, and he vows to kiss her, wed her, tame her, and claim her wild, rebel­lious heart as she has claimed his. 





Linda Needham has writ­ten a won­der­ful love sto­ry made more spe­cial because it is a love based on evolv­ing trust. Humor, sad­ness and laugh­ter are intri­cate­ly woven into the plot and the three-dimen­sion­al char­ac­ters will steal your heart.”  4 (Excellent) –Romantic Times Magazine
