Title: Heather in the Mist
Author: Madelyn Hill Genre: Historical Romance
What her father doesn’t know is Lady Rogan has plans of her own—plans to keep her from a loveless marriage. Can she save the clan before she has to say “I do?”
Ian Albright abolished all ties to Scotland after his family betrayed him and he is now nursing a wounded ego due to an unfaithful fiancée. He pledges never to return to his home until the fateful day he accepts an invitation to his dear cousin’s wedding. The minute he sees his cousin’s betrothed, his heart is captured. If only she didn’t belong to another . . .
Lady Rogan and Ian have known each other since they were young and bent on vexing each other. Now, the only thing they find vexing is the fact Rogan is betrothed to another. Together they fight their growing attraction while investigating the forces bedeviling the clan. Yet at every turn their foe appears and wreaks havoc. When tragedy strikes, their hopes are dashed again.
Can Lady Rogan and Ian’s love win when fate seems determined to keep them apart?
While William was busy unloading the carriage with Duncan, Ian turned to watch the dark-haired beauty stride across the keep’s yard. He appreciated the sway of her rounded hips and the determination in her step.
She was a feisty one. The flare of her nostrils and roiling fury in her green eyes had told him as much.
The rest of her face was equally intriguing. High cheekbones, a feminine nose, and brows like the feathers of a raven winged in flight.
Rogan Cameron had blossomed into a beauty, despite the smudge of flour on her nose.
Did she actually think he did not recognize her? Yes, it had been nearly ten years since he’d seen her, and she had grown. But she still held the mark of a Cameron and her father’s unusual eyes, so pale and green, it was hard to describe their brilliance. He saw the flash of temper in them when he dismissed her. Obviously the fiery temperament of her youth followed her into womanhood.
Noticing uncomfortable warmth, he rubbed his hand. A flash of worry filled his mind. She’d been a meddlesome lass when she was young, but now, a breathtaking beauty that he’d do well to keep in mind was William’s betrothed.
But dear God, when he’d seen her walking toward him, it took all of his strength not to rush to her, brush the flour from her nose, and drink in her loveliness. Her beauty had stolen his breath away. The only way to stop the urge was to pretend he didn’t know her, pretend she didn’t affect him.
Shaking his head to clear his mind of the lass’ bewitching image, Ian turned his attention back to his favored cousin.
The one Rogan Cameron was to wed.

And she couldn’t be happier!
