A few words from the author Iona is a story about the second Jacobite Rebellion when Scotland's clan system was under attack by both religious and political foes. In the death of one great Caledonian culture and the birth of a new Scotland, one woman -- thrust into the role of savior for her clan -- finds her soul mate in the enemy, Niall MacKay. As the world topples around them, they must not only save a Prince's treasure, but also build a new life that allows for both love of an enemy and loyalty to their clans. If you are you ready to face the storm winds howling off of the North Sea, to taste the fiery whisky that is Iona's true "water of life", then follow me back to the rising of '45 and the last stronghold of the Iona MacLeans.
Isolated by the icy storms of the North Atlantic, the isle of Iona was only a temporary haven for its mistress. Lona MacLean, daughter of a rebel and traitor to the crown, knew that it was only a matter of time before the bloody Sasannachs came for her. But she had a stout Scottish heart, and the fiery beauty had given up dreams of happiness years before. One task remained -- to protect her people.
But the man who landed upon Iona's rain-swept shores was not an Englishman. The handsome intruder was a Scot, and a crafty one at that. His clever words left her tossing and turning in her bed long into the night. His kiss promised an end to the ghosts that had plagued both her people and her heart. And in his powerful embrace, Lona found an ecstasy she'd long ago forsworn.
