Rebellion Scotland, winter 1745: Serena MacGregor, the fiery daughter of the powerful MacGregor clan laird, despises Englishmen and all they stand for. So when her brother returns home with his gallant English friend Brigham Langston, Serena knows the man can't be trusted. All it takes is one look at his friend's ravishing red-haired sister, and Brigham is captivated. But the hot-tempered beauty spurns his advances with a rapier-sharp tongue. However, as the snow rages, Serena's passionate anger soon melts into desire... In From the Cold America, Christmas 1776: Injured minuteman Ian MacGregor is forced to take refuge from a winter storm in the home of young widow Alanna Flynn. As she carefully nurses him back to health, he can't help but fall for her. But battling the British has hardly helped prepare Ian for the fight he has on his hands to win the love of this Irish spitfire. Christmas is coming fast, and Alanna is determined to make it a joyful one--even if it means letting this stranger into her home...and her heart.
