In Bed with a Highlander (McCabe Trilogy)

In Bed with a Highlander - Maya Banks The first in the series of 3, this book focuses on the oldest brother and Laird of the Highland McCabe Clan, Ewan. We start off in an Abbey with the abduction of Mairin Stewart, who is posing as a novice. Along the trek to Clan Cameron’s Keep, they picked up an eight year old horse thief named Crispin McCabe. The Laird of the Clan, Duncan Cameron, tries to force her into a marriage to gain her inheritance, but when she refuses to consent before the priest she is beaten and kicked almost to death. I’m not going to tell you how she escapes, that would spoil things, but she and Crispin got away, fleeing to Crispin’s Clan, Clan McCabe!

Mairin exacted a promise from Crispin upon their escape that he wouldn’t tell anyone of her true identity, a bastard daughter of the previous King of Scotland, bearing the Royal Brand high on her thigh as proof. Neamh A`Lainn or Beautiful Heaven is her inheritance, and that, along with a very generous dowry is the only part of her father she possesses and men would kill to claim it! She knew she must marry soon, and to retain her legacy it must be a warrior; but she would never marry an evil, cruel man like Duncan Cameron, warrior or not. So she would remain nameless until she could find a man she could trust to protect her land, children and future.
