Read by Dave Gillies 

When English troops threaten Lady Christiane MacGillean's beloved castle, she sets it ablaze to keep the English out--and prevent them from taking an ancient treasure hidden nearby. Escaping into the Highlands, she is captured, taken south and thrown in an iron cage by order of the English king. Outraged by the Scottish lady's treatment, Sir Gavin Faulkener bargains for her life—and finds himself not only guardian of her castle, but wedded to the dying lady as well . . .  

As Christiane recovers--with surprising help from the English knight--she and Sir Gavin begin to rebuild the ruined tower. Slowly she comes to trust the knight, who cannot deny his deepening passion for her—but he is honor-bound to the king, and the lady remains very much a rebel . . .

Book 1 in the Scottish Lairds series - TAMING THE HEIRESS 

To honor the ancient legend of the selkie and save her Hebridean isle, Meg MacNeill spends one night on a rugged sea rock as local tradition demands. She meets the selkie there--a handsome man who emerges from the sea in a ferocious storm. Passion takes its course, and Meg loses her heart to the gentle stranger who disappears by dawn. But the legend is fulfilled, for luck returns to the island.

Seven years later, engineer and deep sea diver Dougal Stewart returns to the island where he once washed ashore into the arms of a beautiful maiden--but now he arrives to build a lighthouse on the sea rock. He cannot find the maiden, but encounters a fierce and beautiful baroness determined to prevent construction on her island. Soon Dougal realizes that the mysterious baroness is the barefoot beauty he once loved--but legends, obligations and the dangerous sea all conspire to threaten a love that could save all.

"An exquisite and magical Highland romance." ~Booklist *starred review*

Sir Aedan MacBride knows that a local legend declares that the estate's heir must never fall in love, which suits him just fine—until he meets Christina Blackburn. Recognizing the model of the mysterious painting he owns, he realizes she is the key to saving his estate, for only she knows the secret of an ancient legend. But he never expects love to interfere with his plans.
