A Novella by

 
Romance Historical Novella ~ Sensual ~
When Archie Maxwell is accused falsely of killing a Johnstone, his brother, Waylon, known as the Devil's Wolf, sets out to save him. His bargaining tool is the Johnstone's daughter, Catrione. He plans to ransom her for his brother's release, but once he lays eyes on her, his plans take another turn.

Lady Catrione Johnstone knows of the Devil's Wolf and his ruthless exploits. Catrione vows she will fight him to the end. However, the myth is nothing like the man. In his arms, she forgets he is her enemy.
Will the magic of love finally bring peace to these two feuding clans or will it only inflame the hostility to a bloody end?

Excerpt:
"The deed is done, Waylon. I am sorry for no' having more sense, but we cannae let the Johntones torture Archie." He shook his head. "If only I'd thought to capture a Johnstone so we could ransom Archie back."

Waylon scrubbed his hand over his face in frustration, but then a thought occurred to him. Maybe Reid didn't have such a bad idea. "We ride tonight." He placed his forefinger and thumb between his lips and whistled two sharp shrills. His galloway lifted his head and whinnied in response before it trotted over. The shaggy pony was nothing to look at, but he was sure-footed, loyal and fast - important factors for a reiver's way of life.

"What plan do ye have spinning in yer head, Waylon?" Reid followed alongside him.

"Kidnapping a Johnstone. With the laird secreting Archie away to the forest, Lochwood is vulnerable to a raid."

"Aye, and only a daughter to defend the pele tower."

Waylon's lips curved. "Aye, the daughter is who I have in mind to take. Easy pickin's." He turned toward his men of two hundred strong and announced his intentions. "We ride to Lochwood this night. A young lass needs our comfort."

Reid's lips spread into a wide grin. "And what will ye do with the lass?"

"She can bow down to her new laird or suffer the consequences. I care no' what she chooses. I will have her in my keep before the night is over and then we'll see if William willnae negotiate Archie's release."
