We first met Fiona Hay at the court of James I in The Border Lord and The Lady, book 4 in the Border Chronicles series, where she appears as the beautiful mistress of Angus Gordon, a clan chieftain and friend of King James. Then suddenly the MacDonald of Nairn steals her and we hear no more. I just knew there was a story there so I tracked this book down...this is Fiona’s story.
Two years later, James Stewart is now on the throne of Scotland and Angus visits him at court parading Fiona as his mistress before all at court. While he has fallen in love with her, he won't tell her. (Big mistake!)
Pregnant with Angus' child, Fiona finds herself in the Highlands and handfasted to Colin MacDonald, who thinks the child is his.
