Borderland Brides

by Allison Butler

An Englishwoman, a Scottish laird ... a love that will surpass all borders. A sumptuous romance in the spirit of Diana Gabaldon and Darry Fraser.

1402, the Anglo-Scottish border.

Lynelle Fenwick has been an outcast all her life. The daughter of an English lord, she was deemed cursed when her mother didn't survive childbirth. Raised by the village healer, who has since died, Lynelle truly is alone. When her younger half-brother is captured during a Scottish raid, she sees a last chance to redeem herself to the father who rejected her, and offers to be held captive in his place.

Across the turbulent border, Lynelle strikes a bargain with William Kirkpatrick, laird of Closeburn. She will spend two weeks inside the clan's castle tending William's younger brother who is in need of a healer's care. The laird has his own family curse to deal with, along with a deep distrust of healers - and Lynelle has exaggerated her healing skills to obtain her half-brother's freedom.

Despite their differences, William and Lynelle are drawn to each other ... then an unexpected foe threatens to divide them forever. Enemies by birth and circumstance, they can only succeed together.
