King James the Second is caught in a bitter feud with the powerful Black Douglas clan.After the kings latest insult - the unjust confiscation of Douglas lands - Lord John Douglas, Earl of Kildrummond, fears his quiet realm will be next. In a bid to thwart the kings ambition, the ailing nobleman deems that his successor will not be a Douglas. Instead, Kildrummond will pass to a distant relation: the landless, wealthless Lachlan Ramsay. There is one catch, however ... Lachlan must marry Lord Kildrummonds illegitimate daughter, Moira MacInnes.Lachlan does not wish for a wife. Moira does not wish for a husband. The arrangement on offer, however, will give them both the one thing they do wish for: Kildrummond. If they agree to marry - on the understanding that they will have the union swiftly annulled upon the earls death - they will both get what they want.It is a simple enough plan, but can they carry their deception through to the end? When passions ignite, will Moira and Lachlan discover they want more than just Kildrummond?
