Book Summary

Mary Queen of Scots is on the throne, and the frontier between England and Scotland is a powder-keg.

More interested in raiding into Scotland with the rest of her clan than womanly pursuits like embroidery or finding a husband, Alexandra Graham is a feisty English heiress who rides and fights as well as any man. But when a daring rescue goes wrong, she ends up in the dungeons of Scotland’s most forbidding castle, prisoner of the notorious Earl of Bothwell and at the mercy of the queen’s justice.

As deputy warden responsible for keeping the law on the queen’s borderland, Michael Cranstoun is a Scottish laird with a reputation for fair-mindedness and the looks of a viking warrior. But when he meets the beguiling Alexandra, both his life and his honour are at risk - not to mention his affections.

With more than just the border separating them, Alex and Michael are on opposite sides of an ancient divide, and destined for different paths. But a shared love for horses draws them together and kindles a passion that respects no boundaries, endangering more than just their hearts...
