A centuries old curse, a mysterious pendant and a young love reignite a vendetta that had died down long ago…

Samantha, an outsider, finds an old pendant within her deceased grandmother’s belongings. A short while later, the seventeen-year old goes on a school-exchange to Scotland. No sooner has she arrived at her host family’s than she is drawn into the country’s tales and myths. When she then also meets the attractive Scot Payton, her world completely falls apart. The mysterious Highlander soon conquers Sams heart. Caught up in her feelings, she does not realize how much danger she is in - what she does not suspect: Payton’s past holds a dark secret. A secret that has bound together both their families’ fates for hundreds of years and which is now also endangering Sam’s life…

The eBook contains two versions - one with scottish dialect and one without.


‘Do you do this often?’ I asked quietly.



‘Go fer a walk?’

‘No! You know what I mean! Hanging out with girls you have just met?’

Now I was grateful that it was almost dark, because the conversation wasn’t very comfortable and I was bound to be red in the face.

‘No, I never dae this kind o’ thing! And yersel’? Dae ye often go wi’ boys ye dinnae ken?’

I shook my head, embarrassed.

‘No, actually I am timid and sensible.’

Payton had stopped walking and looked at me.

‘Dae ye think it is sensible tae be here wi’ me?’

His words were quiet, almost whispered and his whole posture seemed very tense.

‘No. It is the most irrational thing I have ever done.’ I confessed.

I looked for his eyes, but he had turned his face away. To loosen the atmosphere I joked ‘But I don’t think that I am in danger. You don’t look as if you have killed that many people recently.’

His laugh was hard and forced ‘No, ye are right. No recently.’
