Young Bridget Campbell has a peaceful life in the Scottish lowlands living in her parents’ home with her sisters and training to be a piano teacher. Her life is turned upside down when her wealthy grandfather, Robert MacDonald, invites her to stay with him at his castle and become the lady of the house.
But moving to the castle means living under the same roof as Aidan MacLeod, a handsome highlander recently brought to the village to be her grandfather’s right hand man. Although there’s a mutual attraction, Bridget senses something sinister about the outlander, and if the rumors are true he’s not to be trusted, especially with her heart.
As strange noises fill the night and then a frightening attack nearly sends her from the keep, Bridget considers returning home. Her grandfather needs her, but Aidan and the housekeeper, Besse, would surely rejoice at her departure, leaving them in a better position to inherit the property. Bridget needs to discover the source of the threat and who she can trust.
