Between her gypsy fathers belief that their blood is cursed, and the faith her mother tried to instill fading, she resorts to the only thing she has left in order to get food for the bairns. But when her last hope brings a chance encounter, she is thrust upon a path to Holyrood Palace and the only man who may be able to change her fate–Alasdair Cairncross, an English Royal Horse Guard with long-buried secrets.Alasdair has meticulously planned his life, but he never accounted that hed be forced to transport a thieving gypsy woman halfway across the wilds of Scotland. With his fiances imminent arrival and his fathers greatest political goal within reach, the timing is disastrous. The journey threatens to consume everything he holds dear, and an encounter with superstition in an ancient village exhumes more than memories. As the gypsys prejudice begins to crumble and Alasdairs sense of duty wanes, both must learn how to survive a decades-old feud, a Highland kidnapping, and the awakening of their own hearts.
