For six years, Sine Catriona Brodie has clung to a vow of vengeance. A pickpocket and street performer by trade, Sine bides her time until she can defeat her treacherous kinsmen. Nothing will sway her from her path, not even Gamel Logan - a tall, lean knight whose hungry gaze and heated embrace stir a longing that is both delicious and distracting. From his first glimpse of her at a roadside camp, Gamel knows that Sine, with violet eyes and hair like silken moonlight, is the soul mate he has sought. Yet Sine insists she belongs to another man, though her eager response to his seduction belies her every word. Gamel pledges to help Sine win back her lands from a cunning enemy, but the greater battle will be convincing her to conquer her past and trust in his enduring love...This novel includes an excerpt of Hannah Howell's upcoming Highland romance, "Highland Fire!".--This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.
