The Highland night torments Lady Shawna MacGinnis with haunting dreams. The stunning Scottish lass can never forget it was she who, in the cause of clan loyalty, seduced David Douglas of Castle Rock -- and she who, in the heat of passion, inadvertently lured the handsome laird to his death.
And now surely madness has claimed her, for David Douglas has returned, a hardened, bitter spirit -- slipping like a ghost into Shawna's chamber, using stealth he learned among his brother's people, the native warriors of America's West. For David is determined to reclaim his birthright and wreak vengeance on his betrayers. But as he sets out to make Shawna pay -- with her body, her soul -- he discovers there is no other woman but she who can truly bring him back to live again.
