Highlander in Muscovy

(The fourth book in the Highland Romance series)
A novel by

1700s: Beautiful and impulsive Katherine Putulo, daughter to a Scots doctor, has been raised in the foreign quarter of Muscovy (Moscow) among European emigres. On her sister's wedding day, Katherine recklessly disguises herself as a Russian maid servant and slips away to the forbidden part of the city to join in the revelry of Tsar Peter's victorious returning army, dancing the night away with the native Russians. There she captures the interest of hardened mercenary and handsome Scottish Highlander, Major Alexander Ballantyne, one of the Tsar's bravest officers who has caused a scandal by taking a Russian princess as his mistress.

Smothering her attraction to Alexander, Katherine finds herself the target of unwanted attention from selfish and scheming, Hector Maitland, her noble godfather's nephew. Under the veneer of refined society in the foreign enclave lies tension and betrayal; a shocking murder leads to Alexander's arrest and Katherine is forced to make the hazardous journey to Scotland - the desolate and beautiful land of her father though a foreign country to her. Yet it is not the safe haven for which she longs. Who can she trust and will she ever see Alexander alive again?

From the glittering Russian court of Peter the Great to the wild Scottish Highlands, HIGHLANDER IN MUSCOVY is a fast-paced tale of ambition, betrayal and unbreakable bonds of love.
