When two men come to Dunmuir Castle bearing the body of her murdered sister, Lady Isolde wants revenge, as does every other member of her clan. They want to torture Donall the Bold, laird of the hated MacLean clan, in the most painful, drawn-out method possible, but Isolde also wants to seduce him in order to conceive a child who will bind their clans together, thus ensuring an alliance. Donall isn't happy with either plan. As chieftan, Isolde gets her way, although her kinsman manage to inflict quite a bit of pain on Donall when she doesn't have him chained up in her chambers. At some point, the couple's relationship shifts until neither is sure who's seducing whom or which one of them is actually the prisoner. A loyal dog and a surprise villain round out the cast of Welfonder's steamy medieval tale. Readers who prefer more sensual historical romances, such as those by Jo Beverley, Kinley MacGregor, and Robin Shone, will enjoy this book, too.
As chieftain of the clan MacInnes. Lady Isolde will do anything to protect her people--including sacrifice herself to the enemy. Donall the Bold, laird of the hated MacLeans, lies locked in her dungeon awaiting execution. But rather than slay him. Isolde comes up with a daring plan to forge a lasting peace between their clans.
Though Donall curses his beautiful captor, only a madman would refuse to savor the pleasures beneath that tantalizing aura of dignity and grace. But Isolde offers a mere covenant...and Donall craves nothing less than total conquest. Vowing to steal her heart and take his freedom, the renowned warrior instead will find himself in a different kind of prison--one made of sweet,decadent passion,and one he may never wish to escape.
