As the right
hand man of the Earl of Argyll, Jamie Campbell is the most
respected and feared man in Scotland. Jamie’s newest
mission from his cousin, the earl, is to determine if the
Lamont clan is harboring any of the outlawed MacGregors.
Jamie’s cover is simple; he comes to the Lamonts under the

daughter. What Jamie doesn’t count on is his reaction to
the lady in question. Caitrina is beautiful, spirited, and
doesn’t hesitate to stand up to him. She also wants nothing

comes crashing down around her, it’s up to Jamie to protect,
defend, and love the fiery beauty who has so quickly come to
hold his soul.

McCarty’s first highlander books, The MacLeods of Skye
Trilogy, will be glad to know that those heroes and heroines
make a brief appearance in Highland Warrior.
