Taming the Highlander
book two of the Scottish relic trilogy
RITA© Award Finalist
Innes Munro has the ability to "read" a person’s past simply by touching them, but her gift comes with a heavy price. Forced to stay at desolate Castle Girnigoe, Innes never expects to be drawn to the wounded warrior who haunts its dark passages.
Conall Sinclair, the earl of Caithness, carries the scars of battles with the English and the lash marks of their dungeons, but the wounds that fester within give him even greater pain. Isolating himself from his clan and the rest of the world in a tower perched on the wild Scottish coast, Conall is reluctant to let the spirited Innes close to him.
As their passion grows, Innes fears that her gift is a curse. Conall could never love a woman who can read his darkest secrets and feel the pain he hides. But love can tame all fears. And as dangerous forces close in, they must forge a bond of trust that will save them both.
