Falling for the Highlander (Highlanders #4)
Dougall Buchanan was disgusted by Lord Danvries’ shameful offer, but Murine herself tempts him beyond measure. Even bedraggled and dusty, the lass glows with beauty and bravery. Dougall wants to do more than just help her flee. He wants to protect her—with his life and his heart—if she’ll only let him. For Murine may be pursued by a powerful foe, but nothing compares to the fiery courage of a Highlander in love.
~ CHAPTER 1~
“They’re here!” Murine glanced up sharply from the message she was writing as her maid entered the room. She waited until Beth closed the bedchamber door before asking, “Did ye find out who they are?”
“There will no’ be a spot by the water in another hour or so,” Dougall said mildly, although that wasn’t completely true. He’d traveled this route many times delivering his horses and there were a couple some distance ahead, but none of them offered a waterfall to bathe under. His decision to stop here was because he fancied a nice dip in the water and thought Murine might too. She’d commented self-consciously about the lack of water at their last stop, and that she hoped she did not have a dirty face or something.
