From a beloved mystery author, this much-anticipated return to historical romance in the Scottish Highlands " brings history to vibrant life" ( Romantic Times ).

Scottish Highlands, 1585. Seventeen-year-old Sorcha Fraser is impatient to venture outside of her close-knit family circle at Gosford's End. And she doesn't have long to wait. While out riding, Sorcha meets a compelling young man in priestly robes, but can't foresee that Gavin Napier's destiny is deeply linked with her own. Fate will time and again bring them together--in danger and in love . . .

As Catholics in Protestant Scotland, Sorcha and Gavin are endagered. Even King James has renounced the religion of his mother, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, and those who remain loyal to their "popish" ways are in grave danger. Yet at court, Sorcha becomes a favorite of King James, who sends her to comfort his imprisoned mother in England. After Mary's execution, Sorcha returns to Scotland to find the capricious monarch entangled with vicious advisors and courtesans, whose dark motives could destroy the country and the love of Gavin Napier and Sorcha.

"Daheim's prose is engaging, and her novel has all the best ingredients of a well-researched historical romance" ( Historical Novel Society ).
