Ravished by A HighlanderBook - 2010
Davina Montgomery's father provided the finest soldiers to guard his beloved daughter. But when an army attacks Davina and sets fire to the chapel that houses her, she knows one thing for certain: someone she trusts has betrayed her. Unwilling to cower defenselessly, she grabs a sword and fights her way out. Just as the flames are about to claim her, however, a dark warrior crashes in and plucks her from the inferno. Even though this brutish Highlander saved her life, Davina is unwilling to trust him. After all, he is a brutish Highlander.
Rob MacGregor couldn't care less about Lady Davina Montgomery, much less her beloved England. But he couldn't bear to see this lass come to harm, even though her fiery tongue and her kissable lips make him want to both throttle her and make love to her. Torn between the need to protect her at any cost and the undeniable truth that sheltering her brings danger to his own clan, Rob is forced to choose between love and duty.

“Over the course of their journey together, Rob’s deep, melodic voice had begun to feel as if it were coming from inside her, rather than from close behind. The touch of his body against her back, the caress of his arms coiled loosely about her waist had become familiar to her, comforting, and more profoundly intimate than even kissing him felt. She had no idea what kind of life awaited her beyond this ancient threshold that even Vikings could not penetrate, and though she was excited to begin living, she did not want the journey to end.” (p. 182)
“Nothing in Edward’s life had ever been as difficult as lying there, seemingly lifeless at Gilles’s feet. Nothing, save knowing that Davina was dead. He had failed her. Dear God, how would he ever forgive himself? He hadn’t yet met Davina when he was told it was she he was being sent to St. Christopher’s to protect four years ago. He’d been young and ambitious and he hadn’t yet heard her laughter ringing through the somber halls, or her prayers whispered through honeyed lips for mercy for her enemies. He hadn’t known how easily she could slay him with her tongue and a soft, teasing smile. He’d wanted to tell her the truth. She deserved that much, but just when he’d finally gathered the courage to tell her, Gilles’s men had come. Now it was too late.” (p. 49)
“The sisters had never kept the truth from her. Davina knew why she had been taken from her mother’s arms as a babe, abandoned by her father, and sent off to St. Christopher’s. She understood the value of her existence, for twice now it had cost her everything she loved. When Edward had arrived at the Abbey from King Charles’s court, he had told her of the men who sought her demise. And dear God, there were many. Though his warnings birthed a fear in Davina that was almost palpable, she understood his reasons for telling her. Ignorance of one’s foe was as dangerous as facing them on a battlefield. And so, she lived in uncertainty and unease, always aware of the danger around her.” (p. 31)
