Prized for his snakelike stealth and deadly strikes, Lachlan “Viper” MacRuairi is a warrior to enlist but not to trust. His only loyalty is to his purse, his indifference sealed by bitter betrayal. All that changes when Lachlan is tasked to protect and deliver Bella MacDuff to the king’s coronation—and the proud, lushly sensual countess unwittingly challenges him to his greatest battle yet: to love again.

Passionate and devoted, Bella has defied Britain’s king and her own husband to place the crown on Bruce’s head, and for this she pays a terrible price: Losing her daughter and her freedom to her husband’s vengeance.

Monica McCarty: The Viper

Lachlan held out his hand and helped him to his feet. “I wasn’t expecting you.”

MacLeod gave him a dark look. “Forget what I said. You haven’t learned shite.”


Only a weak man would try to dominate someone he had a duty to protect.


She forgot to be wary of him when she slept. He liked it. Too damned much.
