Now, the New York Times-bestselling author of Hellion and The Love Slave, sweeps us to a time and place of fiery power struggles, where one woman holds the key to a country's future--and to her own consuming passion. BETRAYED When Fiona Hay offers Angus Gordon her virtue in exchange for a dowry for her sisters, she so intrigues the rogue that he demands a higher payment: she will be his mistress. Thus begins a sensual battle of wills and carnal delights. Destiny soon draws the ardent lovers into the turbulent court of King James. Determined to rule a unified Scotland, the king sees a perfect spy in Fiona--a woman of incomparable beauty, uncommon shrewdness, and uninhibited sensuality. The king's political scheme forces her away from the man she loves . . . and into the arms of a wild and passionate Highlander, The MacDonald of Nairn. Will this cold-hearted and his callous betrayal forever destroy Fiona's chance at happiness?
