Cherime MacFarlaneabout this book: Rumor and false witness abound. The Templars are out of favor with the Pope. There is nothing they can do to salvage the order or their position. Perhaps some can save themselves. Those in a small backwater, the Temple at Varna, will try. The treasure they carry is all the knights have to barter with for a safe place to go to ground. A ship laden with all they can get inside sets sail.
Where can they go? Is there any place in the known world where the master, his knights, and the master's young charge will be safe? All know of Scotland's troubles with the Pope and England. Excommunicated, Robert Bruce, who fights to gain the crown, has need of money and men trained to fight.
They strike a deal. In exchange for a goodly share of the treasure, the men can find homes in Scotland. But they must become Scots. If they marry into the clans, it will suffice. Gideon has no wish to marry, but all must do so. He will take a bride.
Ailene is not pretty. She is a rock a man may trust with his life. The small MacGrough clan has need of a man to lead when her father dies. Having turned away those who did not suit her, it surprises Ailene to see the young one at the abbey. She will have the pretty lad and no other.
A marriage born of necessity, two young people caught in the chaos of war, make a game of love and neither wishes it to end.
