Reed is the last of King Edward’s bastard triplets that has yet to fall prey to the king’s trickery. Feeling betrayed and abandoned by his brothers, Reed’s vengeance is now directed toward Rowen and Rook, since they made an alliance with the king. For years after the triplets found out that Edward was their birth father and wanted them killed at birth, they’d worked together as the Demon Thief to steal from the king to make him miserable.
Now, with a raid gone wrong, Reed and his men head back to Scotland. Reed swears nothing will ever make him change his mind about how he feels. But when his next raid leads him right to his childhood sweetheart, Maggie Gordon, things become more complicated.
Maggie has seen the death of her family and the destruction of her homeland years ago. As a child, along with her baby brother, she managed to escape Scotland’s devastation on Burnt Candlemas, and has been living in England for the last ten years as the ward of an English noble. She would do anything to assure her brother, Duff, has a good life – even marry an English baron she doesn’t know. But when her childhood sweetheart, Reed Douglas, comes over the castle wall, old feelings rise to the surface.
Can friends be reunited but this time as lovers? Or will anger and vengeance keep friends and family torn apart?
