In the third chapter of Connie Brockway’s exquisite Highland trilogy, a notorious temptress discovers that nothing settles an old score like true love.
Restless, daring, proud, they are the Merricks: Fia, the only daughter, the ravishing one; Raine, her older brother, the reckless one; and Ashton, the eldest, the passionate one. Born of bad blood, they were raised in the Scottish Highlands on lands that belonged to their mother’s kin, the McClairens—until their English father seized the ancestral stronghold for his own. Yet all are destined to find loves as wild and glorious as the isle they call home.
Possessed of unearthly beauty, the young widow Fia Merrick MacFarlane is the toast of London society. She can have any suitor she wants—or any her scheming father wants for her—but love is a weakness Fia cannot afford. Once she would have given everything to Thomas Donne, until the earnest, dashing Scot betrayed her family and broke her heart. Now he’s back in her life and determined to steal her away to McClairen’s Isle. But as Fia aims to take her own revenge, she sets off a steamy affair that crosses the line from seduction to obsession—and unlocks desires that will not be denied.
