Performed by:
Ralph Lister
#2 in The Legacy of MacLeod Series

After his brother is executed for treason, Ailig MacLeod returns to Castle Assynt bearing a heavy heart and a grim message: the Scottish king has ordered Ailig’s father to forfeit the clan chiefdom — or face deadly consequences. But before he can reach home, Ailig encounters Morainn MacRailt, a beautiful young widow living a solitary life in the glen. He is taken by her quiet confidence and the powerful connection that sparks between them, but his duty lies at Castle Assynt, where his clan is in turmoil. Determined to bring the MacLeods to order, yet wary of whom to trust, Ailig makes a fateful decision: he offers Morainn the protection of the castle in return for becoming its chatelaine. Clever Morainn quickly becomes a valued advisor, and as the trust between them grows, so does an undeniable passion. Together they endeavor to restore the MacLeod legacy — and discover a once-in-a-lifetime love. “Wittig truly captures the essence of the Scots — their deep passion for freedom and justice, love of their homeland and fierce pride — in her remarkable characters and their colorful, historically accurate, highly romantic love story.” – Romantic Times “Laurin Wittig has proven with Daring the Highlander that she is a force to be reckoned with. This is a fantastic book.” – Romance Reviews Today* “With factual historic details, compelling characters, and the combined stories to betrayal and new love, Daring the Highlander is another winner.” – Romance Junkies

Biography:
Laurin Wittig was indoctrinated into her Scottish heritage at birth when her parents chose her oddly spelled name from a plethora of Scottish family names. At ten, Laurin attended her first MacGregor clan gathering with her grandparents, and her first ceilidh (kay-lee), a Scottish party, where she danced to the bagpipes with the hereditary chieftain of the clan. At eleven, she visited Scotland for the first time, and it has inhabited her imagination ever since. Laurin writes bestselling and award-winning Scottish medieval romances and lives in southeastern Virginia. For more information about all of Laurin’s books, please visit her at LaurinWittig.com.
