Scotland, 1766. Angus McTern had everything he wanted in life. Despite the fact that his grandfather lost the family’s land and castle in a card game when Angus was a boy, he still takes his duties as laird seriously. He is well respected by the men of his clan, and adored by all its women. But, when the legal heiress to the castle - the beautiful Edilean Talbot - arrives, Angus’s peaceful existence is shaken up forever.........

From the beginning, Angus acts coolly towards Edilean. He resents her privileged upbringing, and is angered by the way his whole clan seems to worship her. But when one day her entire inheritance is stolen and she desperately needs his help, Angus is forced to put aside his pride. However, all is not as it seems, and in a terrible mix-up Angus finds himself accused of snatching the inheritance and the heiress.

Now, the only way he can escape prosecution is to board a ship to America with Edilean and during the crossing a love begins to grow between them. But their brief experience of happiness is short-lived because it is not freedom that awaits them in America but Edilean’s money-hungry fiancée, who forces Edilean to return to Scotland with him. That is, until fate draws Angus and Edilean together once more..........
