“It has always, only, ever been you.” - Cameron
Cameron MacPherson was the most powerful and loyal laird in all of Scotland. For his loyalty, Alexander II wanted to bestow the honor of an English bride, and arranged a marriage with the daughter of one of the most powerful families in England. She was also the daughter of the Baron who'd murdered his father. Much to Cameron's surprise, however, his betrothed was not unfamiliar to him.
Abigail Haynsworth was nothing more than chattel for barter at her father's whims. Her first marriage ended on her wedding day when her husband plotted to kill her. In the midst of the planned attack, a Scottish warrior saved her from certain death. The trauma of that night broke her mind, and she remained oblivious to life until the day she wed Cameron.
Cameron was taken aback that his bride was not of sound mind. When the marriage ceremony was performed and Abby's eyes met his, his world stilled. To his surprise, standing before him was the woman he'd rescued several years earlier, who had since occupied a permanent place in his thoughts. While her mind was unsound, and her voice mute, Abby uttered her first word in six years that day.
Their marriage may have started as an unwanted nuisance, but as Abby's mind awakened from its trauma-induced sleep, love began to blossom between the unlikely couple. Unfortunately, intending to protect his most valued laird, Alexander placed a condition upon the marriage: a child must be conceived before a year's time or the marriage would be annulled.
And so the story of Cameron and Abby unfolds with abounding uncertainties. The desire for a child and Cameron's lust for vengeance suspend over the couple like a cloud to the sunrays of their happiness. As their love grows and flourishes, so do the dangers to their marriage and to themselves. It is not only a question of whether their marriage will survive, but whether they themselves will live through the perils ahead.
