Scotland, 1812: He’s ferocious and rugged to the bone, an English soldier more at home on the battlefield than in any Society drawing room. And when Major Gabriel Forrester learns that he’s inherited the massive Scottish Highlands title and estate of a distant relation, the last thing he wants to do is give up the intensity of the battlefield for the too-soft indulgences of noble life. But Gabriel Forrester does not shirk his responsibilities, and when he meets striking, raven-eyed lass Fiona Blackstock, his new circumstances abruptly become more intriguing.
Like any good Highlander, Fiona despises the English—and the new Duke of Lattimer is no exception. Firstly, he is far too attractive for Fiona’s peace of mind. Secondly, his right to “her” castle is a travesty, since it’s been clan Maxwell property for ages. As the two enter a heated battle of wills, an unexpected passion blazes into a love as fierce as the Highlands themselves. Is Fiona strong enough to resist her enemy’s advances—or is Gabriel actually her hero in disguise?

Battle. Hot, bloody, dirty battle. Major Gabriel Forrester loved it. Strategy, bluffs, feints, maneuvers—fancy words, but it all came down to who hit harder, and who flinched first. And he’d never flinched.
Kicking Union Jack in the ribs, he sent the bay careening down the slope. Like everywhere else he’d been in Spain, the land around Salamanca offered little but shrubbery and dust and crumbling, steep-walled gullies. Except for the area directly in front of him, that was. Wellington and Marmont had found the one pleasant valley for ten miles around in which to slaughter each other.
