Donal MacNabb is loyal to his adopted Lathan clan, yet he resents being a pawn in their treaty negotiations with the struggling MacKyries. The MacKyrie clan needs his skills as an arms master, but its Laird is bartering for more than Donal is prepared to give.

Ellie MacKyrie knows the Lathan treaty will help protect her clan from the neighbor determined to seize her holdings any way he can—including forcing her into marriage. But she has another reason to want the Lathan alliance. She has Seen the stubborn Donal MacNabb reaching for her in her dreams.

While Donal fights to save a clan in trouble, his desire for the MacKyrie Seer wars with his obligation to his Laird. Before she is forced into a marriage that will destroy her clan, Ellie must find the heart behind Donal’s gruff exterior and convince him he is the man of her dreams.

    I love watermelon — good, sweet watermelon. I eat it right down to the rind. But I’m not sure I would have tho’t to add the other things to make a watermelon salad. Maybe I’ll have to try it.

    Other summertime favorites: cantaloupe, strawberries, ice cream. But for summer, I prefer not to have to have a ‘recipe’ as that evokes ‘work’ — so just the simple, cut up and serve.
