A Highland Knightâ€™s Desire
In 15th century Scotland, Sir Duncan rushes to rescue Lady Meg from the clutches of the Earl of Northumberland. As they risk life and limb to make their escape, the brawny knight is knocked off guard by the sassy redheaded lass. And aye, the tall, dark and rugged Highlander challenges Megâ€™s piety with his every stare. Duncan must return Meg to her family and collect his bounty before the lass further sinks her wiles into his heart. But Megâ€™s kidnapper is brewing revenge. If Northumberlandâ€™s ruse is not exposed, Meg may end up becoming a nun, and Duncan a pawn in a deadly game.
The young womanâ€™s body is lying with her arms stretched out to each side. Her lips slightly parted. Her face untouched by injury and her hair spread around her head like a fan. A redhead. Just like the others. When the body of Leann Truitt is found in a secluded cove in Mystery Bay, Detective Megan Carpenter is one of the first on the scene. The victim has tell-tale marks on her wrists, ankles and neck where she has been bound. But thatâ€™s not all. Next to Leannâ€™s body lies a puzzling clue â€“ an unusual symbol scratched into a rock.
