As Averill Mortagne tends to her brother Will’s wounded friend Kade Stewart she slowly falls in love with him. Averill’s fiery red hair and nervous stuttering have turned many suitors away, so she is glad Kade cannot see her due to his injury. Kade can’t see Averill, but he likes what he hears and her caring nature stirs him. Kade wants to become Laird of his home so he can stop his drunken father and brothers from further ruining the castle and lands. He takes the beautiful and reluctant Averill for his wife and returns home to find the castle in near ruins and his life being threatened at every turn. Averill soon proves that her spirit is as fiery as her brilliant red hair as she helps him gain everything he always wanted.

Averill is a seductive combination of innocence and passion. She’s been misguided by fools who convinced her that she was ugly and unworthy, but Kade saw through all of that before he even regained his sight. He’s a good man and an even better husband. His lessons extend beyond teaching Averill to love and accept herself, and they match the intensity of his lessons in passion. Kade wasn’t looking for a wife, but Averill became an unexpected and delightful bride, while Averill never thought she’d find a husband who loved and accepted her for who she was. Kade is a wonderful surprise. The Hellion and the Highlander is a story about finding love when you least expect it.
