About this item

Local legend has it that any male of the Chattan family who falls in love will die—which is the basis for the marvelous historical romance series by New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell, The Chattan Curse. The Chattan legend continues in the second installment, The Scottish Witch, as the action and romance moves to the Scottish Highlands, where one determined man, fighting for his familys honor, is mesmerized by a beautiful enchantress for whom he is willing to risk everything. The Scottish Witch is a powerful story of courage, love, fate, and devotion that will delight fans of Christina Dodd and Jennifer Ashley, featuring the sort of sexy, fearless, enormously appealing and unforgettable hero that RITA Award finalist Maxwell is known and loved for.
