And what will she do when the true laird of Dunloch returns?
Author Veronica Bale continues her debut trilogy with the anticipated second volume in the Highland Loyalties series.

His departure leaves the young and naive Jane Sewell, Robbie’s love … and Lord Reginald’s English bride, vulnerable.
Day after day Jane waits for word of Robbie, growing more and more despondent when nothing is to be heard – until the day that Robert MacGillivray resurfaces in a bold and daring move to reunite and strengthen his clan.
What does this bold move mean for Jane? Will her loyalties remain with Lord Reginald as her husband, or will she find them swaying towards Robbie once more?
Author Veronica Bale’s debut novel, Bride of Dunloch, is a gripping story of love and conflict in the time of the first Scottish War of Independence, and of one young girl’s struggle to determine for herself what is right and what is wrong.
In the watery grey light of a late spring dawn, two forces meet to oppose one another at the main gate of Dunloch Castle, an imposing structure nestled deep in the Scottish Highlands.

Dunloch is theirs, and they will take it back—by any means necessary.
So is the world in which Jane Sewell, a young and naive English girl of noble birth whose hand has been given away in marriage, finds herself. It is a land that is as bloody and brutal as it is beautiful. But when she stumbles upon a wounded Scottish warrior from the enemy MacGillivray clan, her compassionate nature will not allow her to abandon him. Against her better judgement, she resolves to help him in secret.
As tensions at Dunloch intensify, however, Jane finds herself torn between her duty—and her heart. For in these Scottish Highlands, loyalties can change as quickly as the weather …
