Being a daughter of one of the legendary illegitimate sons of the king proves to be a blessing as well as a curse for Fia Douglas. Having both English and Scottish blood, she is being fostered in Northumberland per the late English king’s wishes. This puts her far from her beloved family and homeland of Scotland.
When war breaks out between England and Scotland, Fia finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Alone with a wounded Highland spy in the late queen’s secret garden, she ends up being kidnapped by the Scot and brought back to the Highlands where she is now a prisoner in her own land.
