The Pirate Laird#39;s Hostage
The Pirate Laird's Hostage He saved her life - now she belongs to him.William Bain has clawed his way out of the wreckage of his past, leaving his outlawed family name behind. He now rules a ruthless clan on the Isle of Skye. Quick-tempered, impetuous and with a certain rugged charm, Will loves warring and women in equal measure. He has no need for love and loyalty until Morna Buchanan falls under his power and turns his world upside down. She once saved him from execution as a traitor and, now that he has rescued her from dire peril, he would repay that debt.Will pledges to keep Morna safe from those who would destroy her, but is she safe from him, and from the desire that stirs in him when he looks upon her? Will is not a man to ignore his worst impulses, especially not those driving him towards a girl as bonnie as she is wild, and he will not be denied for long.Morna Buchanan is on the brink of marriage when she is betrayed and sent to her doom. When Will Bain rescues her, she thinks he is her saviour. His wounded soul calls to hers, and she goes weak at the knees with every look from his piercing, blue eyes, never having forgotten their meeting years before. Will was just out of boyhood then, but now he is a man and a dangerous one at that. The longer Morna stays at his grim castle on the cliffs of Skye, the more she suspects she is not a guest but a prisoner.As Scotland braces for another English invasion, Morna must form an alliance to keep her family safe. If that means a union with William Bain, who is everything she should not want, traitor, outlaw, pirate, then so be it. She has to have him in the name of peace and family loyalty, doesn’t she? The only problem is that Will is not giving her a choice in the matter.
