A passionate young lass. A womanizing merchant. Is Allana Dundas’ life doomed before it even begins?
When wild and beautiful Allana Dundas reaches nineteen, everyone believes it is high time she is wed.
Her family expects her to marry the neighbouring Laird’s son, Nevin Kirk, a ruggedly handsome and masculine young man.
Yet, a drunken embrace leads to sparks flying between Nevin and the fair, quiet Bettina, Allana’s younger sister.
Suddenly, all expectations are shattered.
The sisters begin unwittingly competing for the hand of the handsome Nevin until hopeless romantic Allana finds an irresistible passion in the arms of a mysterious travelling merchant from Mull named Kendrick Muir.
Undoubtedly, a proposal is not far behind and when the mature and sexy Laird Gavin Ingram catches word of the budding romance blossoming in the heart of Dundas Castle, he is shaken to his very core.
Their wedding must be ruined, but how?
A long-concealed ally arrives in Oban to reveal a heart-breaking secret which casts Allana’s future into chaos once more.
She isn’t getting any younger and a fearful Allana realizes she must find a suitor or face a lonely future of spinsterhood.
Will the free-willed Allana Dundas ever be tamed?
