Nessia Stephenson's world was safe until a threat from a neighbouring clan forces her to accept a betrothal to a man whose family can offer her the protection she needs. The real threat lies in her intense attraction to the man who arranged the match—the clan's chief and her intended’s brother, Fergus MacKay.

When powerful warlord Fergus MacKay arranges a marriage for his younger brother, William, he has no idea the price will be his own heart. Fergus is captivated by the wildly beautiful Nessia, a woman he can never have.

When the feud between the MacKay and Sutherland clans escalates, Nessia, William, and Fergus all must make sacrifices for their future. Longing and loss, honour and duty. How can love triumph under such desperate circumstances?

Excerpt
“For a man who isn’t eager to meet his future wife, you’ve got quite a set of nerves there lad,” Fergus said to William.

William straightened his linen shirt and smoothed his tunic as he glared at Fergus. Yet, the comment was absorbed and William ceased his pacing to sit on a chair near the fire. Fergus watched his brother adjust his belt again. The young man wore his usual dress but had taken greater pains today to perfect his appearance. Fergus glanced down at his linen shirt and sleeveless leather tunic. William’s long hair was tied at his nape while Fergus’s was left hanging loose. He recalled having to take extra pains upon his betrothal. Thankfully those days had passed and he needn’t worry overly anymore. A young lass would surely find William’s neat, respectable appearance appealing. He hoped so, but before he could dwell on it further, a servant entered and announced the arrival of Thomas Stephenson, his daughter Nessia and several of their clansmen.

William sprang to his feet and crossed the floor in a few quick strides to greet them. He continued to fidget as Fergus sauntered up from behind.

“Thomas! Welcome. We thought we’d have to send out a search party soon,” Fergus said as the stout man turned the corner leading into the great hall.

“Aye, the road was a bit rough with a wagon in tow,” Thomas said. The man’s brow was streaked with sweat and he looked weary from his travels.

“We’ve had a lot of rains this harvest there’s no doubting that,” Fergus said.

In truth he would have gone searching himself had another hour passed. Earlier that day he’d heard more rumours about Ronan Sutherland. Apparently, the lad had agreed to his father’s suggestion and would commence his campaign in the coming days. Fergus sensed William stiffen beside him as Thomas began the introductions.

“Fergus, William, this is my brother Neville and these three are my sons, Colin, Robert, and Camden my youngest. And this is my daughter, Nessia.”

Fergus acknowledged each man in turn. When the introduction came to the girl and his gaze fell on her, his breath caught in his throat. With black hair and bright blue eyes she stood proud before him with her chin lifted and all the regal confidence of a noblewoman. She displayed no fear or reservation at all, something which was unusual in most men he met, but more so in a woman. The gentler sex usually cowered before him—not this lass.

Fergus stared at the girl, his heart drumming. His guts clenched as if he’d been punched. He had to force himself from moving toward her to touch her hair which looked like spun silk, for surely it could not be real. Fergus remembered his brother then and tore his gaze from her to find William’s eyes wide and his jaw slacked. An unexpected pang ran through him.

When he turned back it was to find her still staring at him, seemingly unabashed for staring openly at a man. A bold one, then. Fergus’s drew his brows together. What did she want?

What the reviewers are saying
Even for men?
From a Scottish Male point of view all these books are great. I may have romanticized my Scottish heritage but these books do it better and are also historically accurate. Was very surprised I was was sucked it to wanting to read more. Well done. ~ Ian, Amazon

Hot Highlander Series
This is the first book I have read by Kate Robbins and all I could think about is WHY have I not found her before? This book is so amazing! . . . I stayed up way past my bedtime, telling myself just a few more minutes to read, but in the end I couldn’t put it down until I knew how it ended. I was sure there would be a happy conclusion, but I just had to know! . . . I heartily recommend this book and author. I’m so happy I had the chance to discover her work and will definitely be reading more. ~ Kiltsandswords, Amazon

A brave, brawny and flawed Scottish hero? YES PLEASE!
If I could give this book infinite stars, I would. Robbins has really outdone herself with this book. From the very first page you can't help but be hooked . . .

Spellbinging 6 stars
As soon as, I started to read it, I got pulled into Fergus, Nessia and William’s story and kept on reading till the early hours in the morning! I got so captivated that I had to know what would happen next . . . Ms. Robbins’s story is so refreshing because her heroine Nessia is not the traditional young girl we meet in novels, she is brave and will stop at nothing to protect the ones she loves. Again, she was very descriptive of the surroundings. The love scenes are very sensual and well written! The author nicely blended believable characters into her captivating Scottish romance. Let yourself get pulled into this Scottish story filled with love, action, treason and intrigue . . . was fantastic from beginning to end. I can’t wait to read her next book in this series . . .

It’s the rare book that sets its hooks so deeply I find it hard to put down and, even when I must, can’t get it out of my mind. Promised to the Highlander was such a book. Author Kate Robbins hooked me at the start and kept reeling me in page after page. I stayed up past my bedtime to find out what happened next and couldn’t wait to get back to it at the end of the day. ~ Nina Mason, Goodreads

If I could give this book infinite stars, I would. I read a beta version of this book (and will be buying it when it comes out!). Robbins has really outdone herself with this book. From the very first page you can't help but be hooked. The character of Fergus is exactly what you want in a Highland hero. Brave, brawny, and a little flawed. Because I don't want to give away any of this fabulous book, I'm not going to get into the details, but suffice it to say that this is a story that will hurt your heart. Fergus and Nessia certainly don't have an easy road, and Robbins takes us on their journey in heart-wrenching style. To say I loved this book is likely an understatement. Without a doubt the best medieval Highland historical romance I've had the pleasure of reading. ~ Victoria Barbour, Goodreads
