MADELINE: Imprisoned in a loveless marriage, Lady

beautiful Scot who sets her blood and her body on fire, even as he claims the
SIMON: Forced to roam the earth for more than a
century following the Battle of Culloden, Simon McKenzie is a hunter, and the
sad, lonely woman walking the grounds of Hartsdale Castle on the Eve of Samhain
is his prey…until she lays claim to his heart and shows him that there can be
light in his life once more.

Simon stood by the edge of
woods, his gaze directed toward Hartsdale Castle. He couldn’t see the house—he
was too far away for that—but he didn’t need to. He could hear every word
