Book 2 - Scottish Highlander series
TO WED A HIGHLANDER is a historical romance set in the early 14th century Scottish highlands, about the story of the second eldest McTiernay brother, Colin, who marries Makenna Dunstan in order to save her clan, only to discover he is the one who needs to be rescued.
Only one reason could persuade the fiery independent Makenna Dunstan to marry the huge overbearing highlander — she needed to save her people. Without his famed skills as a warrior, her battle-weary clan would be overrun by ambitious neighbors. Marrying the mourning highlander would fulfill her beloved sister’s dying wish, but it would cost Makenna the dreams she has clung to over the years, to find a man she could trust and love and who would love her in return.
Colin McTiernay knew marrying his brazen, impetuous sister-in-law was the only way he could continue protecting the clan of his beloved, gentle dead wife. But one unexpected, powerful kiss arousing intense desires gave him hope. Makenna’s passionate and independent nature made life difficult, but it also made her the one person who could awaken his soul. Now he must overcome not only his pride but hers in an effort to heal the lowland clan. Coping with highland-wary neighbors all around and a resentful lowland chief who desires Makenna for his own, Colin and Makenna wrestle with unfamiliar desire as intense feelings grow into an enduring love neither ever thought to find.
