The Scottish Thistle -- Megan MacLeod lost her family, her home and any hope for a normal future when she and her clansmen are forced into hiding in the aftermath of a British invasion. Yet she refuses to surrender. As the only surviving MacLeod, Megan assumes responsibility for the clan, calling herself the Black Wolf and masterminding wildly successful retributions against the English until it catches the attention of the King himself. The English Thorn -- Rolf St. James, a hardened soldier with a checkered past, is sent to the glen to put an end to the Scottish insubordination and bring peace to the region in whatever method he deems necessary. Rolf's only obligation is to bring the King the head of the Black Wolf. She held the key to his campaign's success. He wielded a dangerous power over her heart. Together they forged a forbidden, tempestuous love that would forever change their lives and the destinies of those around them.
