Her people devise a bizarre plan of escape—a guise that must appear authentic and true. They insist that she marry to confuse her enemies who recognize her only as a young woman, a maid.
While trying to overcome his grief for the death of his dear father, Braeson journeys to Scotland to purchase ponies at Rose Castle. Upon his arrival, it is Bonnie of Rose who captures his attention when she whacks him over the head, believing him a thief. Days later, in a secretive scheme to protect her, she is offered to Braeson as his bride. Bonnie refuses to marry this stranger, this English. Braeson refuses to take responsibility for this teary-eyed young woman. Yet, sacrifice and heartache inevitably bind them together in a midnight wedding.
Together, Bonnie and Braeson are swept into a perilous journey from Scotland to England, challenged to find the courage to battle their enemies, confront the secrets of their heritages and embrace the love that fate offers. Secret Keeper is the first book in the Keeper Trilogy.
