In the dead of night with deliberate determination, a young mother gathers her toddler and flees her brutal past in hope to secure a chance at a better future for her daughter.
On the journey through Scotland, Abigail and her precocious toddler, Jessalyn, meet up with a band of Highlanders led by the arrogant Laird Duncan MacDugal, known for his superior skills on the battlefield and ability to intimidate even his toughest rivals.
With Abigail’s fiery temper and Duncan’s difficult disposition, they find it impossible to agree on anything. However, their struggles can’t compare to the battle of wills between the fierce laird and the obstinate toddler. No one could have predicted the infamous, mighty warrior would find his toughest adversary in this pint sized opponent.
Will the laird, mother, and child be able to figure out how to become a family?
