*Previously published as Mac Liam (This new edition has been partially rewritten and professionally edited.)
For seven long years, Breandán Mac Liam has been haunted by the memory of Mara. The Connacht princess captured Breandán's heart but married a Northman and traveled far from the lush forests where first they met. Now word reaches Breandán that the Northman is dead, and a perilous charge has been assigned him: escort the princess through war-torn lands to her dying father's side.
Mourning her husband and struggling to raise their troubled young son, Mara does not know she's the object of the Irishman's longing. Heartbroken over the loss of her husband, she is totally unprepared for the feelings Breandán awakens in her.
As their worlds collide, Breandán not only finds himself wrapped in the arms of Mara's embrace but forced to defend his honor. With Mara caught between the family she loves and the father she knows, can Breandán uncover the mystery of her past and still protect her from a secret that threatens them all?
