Publisher's Summary

Laire MacLeod's father has married a mysterious widow who is a vain beauty that deals with potions and spells. Laire does not drink them with the rest of her family and is the only one who could see through her stepmother's games. When Laire flees to find help from her uncle, the Lady's huntsman follows her with orders to kill. Laire must survive in a dangerous new city and find the antidote to a poisonous potion before it is too late.
Iain Lindsay is cursed. He is bound for seven years to be the hunter of a Lady who uses him to bring back birds to use in her potions. When Laire MacLeod escapes the Lady's nets, Iain tracks her to Edinburgh, where she's found shelter with an unusual band of thieves, but he cannot bring himself to harm her. Instead, he finds himself falling in love with the MacLeod beauty.
But a Highlander's oath is his bond, and the price for helping her is death - both his own, and of those he loves.

To his gross disappointment, Donal Macleod’s seven previous wives only gave birth to daughters. His 8th wife turns out to be a scheming witch who drugs Donal and his daughters with a mind-numbing potion. Laire refuses to drink the concoction and escapes to Edinburgh, followed closely by the witch’s mysterious and conflicted henchman, Iain Lindsey, who is sent to kill her. As Laire seeks to rescue her family, the ensuing tale is a captivating succession of close encounters and near disasters with an amazing band of endearing and malevolent characters. This is an exhilarating love story and breathtaking adventure. Ruth Urquhart’s narration is utterly amazing as each character fully materializes through the magic of her voice."}]
