1684, Scottish Highlands

Clan chief Grey Campbell would rather die than see Finlarig Castle, his family home, fall into English hands. He’s already had to fight off a blazing fire, likely set by the outsiders constantly lurking outside the castle, so one beautiful Englishwoman flashing a bill of sale does not intimidate him.

Evelyn Worthington has dreams her own. Dreams that could finally come true, now that her brother has purchased a Scottish castle. The trek from England was exhausting, but it will all be worth it once she can get past the brawny Highlander and into her castle… And ignore the passions that flare between them.

It’s a battle of wills, but Evelyn and Grey aren’t the only ones with their sights set on Finlarig. As secrets are revealed and muskets are lit, the fate of the Campbell Clan, Evelyn’s hard-fought plan, and the possible future between this Sassenach and Highlander are in as much jeopardy as their lives.

Each book in the Campbells series is STANDALONE:
* The Scottish Rogue
* The Savage Highlander
* The Wicked Viscount
