Sixth-century Scotland--in the time of Arthur.... "The Gowrys' seed shall divide your mighty house and bring a peace beyond the ken of your wicked soul." Her mother's dying prophecy to the chieftain Tarlach O'Byrne sentenced Brenna of Gowrys to twenty years of hiding. Twenty years of being hunted--by the O'Byrnes, who fear the prophecy, and by her kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a trained and gifted healer, not a warrior queen. So she lives alone in the wilderness with only her pet wolf for company. When she rescues a man badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he may be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and greed...and bring peace and renewed faith to the shattered kingdom?

The Fires were good, but the Brides of Alba are even better!
