Twenty-five-year-old Brenna MacRae, a healer from Skye with a touch of the Witchery, embarks on a dangerous and clandestine mission to find her father Ian MacRae.
On the Isle of Coll, she encounters the debonair Egan Dunbar, future clan chief of the Dunbars, when Egan rescues her from a foul mouthed, abusive Campbell sentry at Castle Breacachadh.
Egan is on Coll to negotiate and prevent a war between the feuding Dunbars and Campbells. His sire, having seen enough deaths in the old Clan Wars is not about to risk the lives of any Dunbar on another bloody de trop battle.
But, Egan finds himself enchanted by the bonnie healer instead, and even though Egan knows he cannot trust her, he finds himself drawn to her. He is honor bound to help her rescue the mysterious Ian MacRae, at the risk of inciting an all out war with the Campbells, and going against his sire.
The sparks between Brenna and Egan that ensues are now stoked to a full firestorm. Will Egan be able to stop a clan war and save Brenna? Will Brenna be able to rescue Ian MacRae, at the risk of revealing her family's wretched past to Egan? And, if their respective stations in life is pulling them apart, how will they escape the unseen forces that keep pushing them together?
