Synopsis: Anna, the shepherdess, finds a half-naked man in her bed, so what’s a woman living alone in a cottage in the Lowlands of Scotland supposed to do? Prod him with her pitchfork to chase him off! Only the man is not just a traveler seeking her bed for a rest—but a wounded Highlander, who fights back, swinging his sword!

Niall MacNeill is searching for a Frenchwoman of nobility to escort to his brother’s castle for safekeeping, when he and his friend, Gunnolf, are attacked by another Highland clan, seeking the same woman. The other Highlanders wish to sell her to the highest bidder—English or French—it does not matter.

Niall takes refuge in a sheepherder’s cottage to heal up from his wounds and discovers the shepherdess taking care of him may very well be the woman he seeks. He has no intention of doing anything but what his brother requests of him—ensure her safety on their way to Craigly Castle—but when the lass so bravely wields her pitchfork at him, he is thinking of other, more interesting possibilities.

As the visitor grew closer to the cottage, Niall shook his head at the lass. “Nay, he is too young to be your father. A lover then, or a brother?”
She mutinously didn't say a word, just glowered at Niall. The last time a bonny lass, such as this one, had given him so much grief, he had kissed her and that had melted the glower away. He didn't believe it would work on the lass though. He could imagine her giving him bloody hell, alerting the man outside, and him coming to her rescue.
Anora? ‘Tis me, Matthew,” the man shouted, breaking into Niall's thoughts of kissing this lass. “Where is Anora?” Matthew asked Charlie, as the dog stuck close to him. He reached over and petted Charlie’s head again, and then continued on his way to the door of the cottage. Anora. A lovely name for a lovely lass.
“He will know something is amiss when I do not answer him,” Anora said, her voice hushed as she jerked her arm in an attempt to free herself, but Niall gripped her tighter so she couldn’t break loose.
“Who is he?” Niall whispered into her ear, got a whiff of lavender that scented her hair, and wanted to kiss her in the worst way. What was wrong with him? Mayhap the bump on the back of his head had addled his thoughts more than he had believed.
“A friend, Matthew,” she said darkly under her breath, trying to move her face away from Niall's. Her body was so tense, yet she shivered.
Afraid of Niall? Or was the tension more to do with her building anger? He hadn't wanted to frighten the lass.
“And you are alone?” he asked.
The lass shouldn’t have been meeting the man when she was unchaperoned. Not when she was an unmarried miss.
Niall shook his head. “He will go away. Be still.”
