Summary

Molly Gordon, the Maid of Dunsithe, would be the wealthiest woman in Scotland...if anyone could find her fortune. But spirited away by her greedy uncle, she is kept captive on a misty island, separated from her treasure and the rest of her family, perhaps forever. She longs for a hero to rescue her. But when Sir Finlay Mackenzie, the fiery warrior, gains possession of Molly, her defiance and his temper lead them into a battle of wills. Armed with the right to marry her or barter her, he finds a proud princess who resists his passion and fights his every command. Now the real adventures begin as together Molly and Fin face danger, desire, and the fate that will drive them until they can open their hearts to magic-and to love.

Booklist Review

As the Maid of Dunsithe, Molly Gordon is thought to be the wealthiest heiress in Scotland, even though her family's fortune has remained hidden since the day Molly was taken from her home as a young girl. While living under the protection of her present guardian, the Laird of Mackinnon, Molly learns that she is about to have a new protector in the person of Finlay Mackenzie, who arrives with a notice from King James allowing Finlay to take possession of the Maid of Dunsithe. Even though Finlay may have received royal permission to marry Molly to whomever he wishes, he quickly discovers Molly is determined to have a say in the matter. A vivid Scottish setting, an engaging battle of wits between a strong-willed heroine and an equally stubborn hero, and a dash of fantasy in the form of some fairies all come together beautifully in Scott's latest Highland romance. --John Charles
