The tenth book in Monica's Highland Guard series
Six years ago, Eoin "Striker” MacLean endured the greatest betrayal of his life, a disaster that led Robert the Bruce to a crushing defeat and left Eoin without the spirited woman who ruled his heart. Eoin knew that falling in love with his sworn enemy’s daughter was risky, dividing him between a possessive desire for beautiful Margaret MacDowell and an undying loyalty to his king. He promised Bruce that he would keep his fiery bride in the dark about the elite Highland Guard, but he could not predict the dire consequences his secret would have on his young marriage. Nor could he foresee how surrendering to temptation could cripple Bruce’s cause, forcing Eoin to blame his wife—and himself for trusting her.
Now, as Bruce prepares to challenge the resistance’s remaining strongholds, Eoin finally has his chance for revenge against the woman he once loved so fiercely and her entire clan. But when ferociously independent Margaret reveals a surprise that unites her with Eoin, neither of them will let their love go down without a fight.

The eleventh book in Monica's Highland Guard series
The first time Thomas MacGowan saw Elizabeth Douglas, he thought she was a princess. To the son of the castle blacksmith, the daughter of the powerful Lord of Douglas might as well be. Despite their differences in rank, they become inseparable—until Thom confesses his love, and the humiliation of realizing Elizabeth has never considered him a potential suitor drives him to battle, determined to change his fortune as a warrior in the Bruce army.
Elizabeth is devastated. She never meant to hurt Thom. But her only hope for security is to marry for the betterment of her clan. When the English capture her younger brother, she turns to the quiet, steady former protector who can climb anything. But the merciless, muscled warrior is not the companion she remembers. Though Thom has made clear he wants nothing to do with Elizabeth, can he truly refuse the alluring woman who makes his heart race—and how long will she deny that he’s always been her knight in shining armor?
