The Raided Heart
Jennifer C. Wilson
In the harsh world of the border reivers, can love ever find a way? When an accident throws Will and Meg together, they realise they have met their match, but life is never that simple. A family alliance sees Meg betrothed to the son of Alexander Gray, a tyrannical neighbour, and the young couple are torn apart. Can they – and their love – survive a double tragedy?
Meg Mathers, the headstrong youngest sibling of a reiving family on the English-Scottish border, is determined to remain at her childhood home, caring for the land and village she’s grown up with. When an accident brings her a broken ankle and six weeks in the resentful company of ambitious and angry young reiver Will Hetherington, attraction starts to build.
Both begin to realise they might have met their match, and the love of their lives, but 15th century border living is not that simple, as Meg soon finds herself betrothed to the weakling son of a tyrannical neighbour, Alexander Gray. When tragedy strikes, can Meg and Will find their way back to each other, and can Will finally take his own personal revenge on Gray?
The Raided Heart is the first of “The Historic Hearts”, a collection of historical romantic adventures set in Scotland and the North of England.
