Declan Sinclair is a Highlander who believes his dreams never lie. 
When he spots Caya at a public house, he knows instantly she is 
the woman in his dreams—his future wife. Though her brother had 
promised never to gamble again, he engages Declan in a card game
—and the prize is the lovely Caya. 

Caya Pendarvis has no time for childish things like dreams or fairy-
tales or love. She’s the sacrificial lamb on her way to the far north 
of Scotland to wed a wealthy merchant in exchange for settling her
 brother’s gambling debts.

Winning at cards is one of the many things Declan Sinclair does 
well. Unfortunately, the ability to court a woman—a talent he lacks
—is the only skill he desperately needs to win Caya’s heart.

Oh my God what a wonderful story! Which is a totally 
amazing book. This story is extremely well written thought
 out period and extremely accurate.

This is Declan and Caya's story. Now he has prophetic 
dreams in his dreams about his future wife. It when he sees 
her he knows he must have her. Being extremely good at 
Cards when her brother approaches to play a game of 
Napoleon he does not refuse. He is about to let him win 
when he does being speak on his sister as part of the prize. 
So when he wins she's better off with him than with her 
brother. But they are both in for a surprise when they reach 
the lyrics house. And he advises Declan that he cannot win a
 girl in cards and expect her to marry him. My favorite part of
 this book is when she makes Cornish pasties for Declan is 
a thank you and she tells the story of how they were used 
down in the mines. And how the edges kept the food clean 
so that the miners didn't ingest any of the arsenic that was on
 their hands. I've actually seen this story and know that is 
historically accurate. Not only do you get a wonderful 
romance you get a history lesson as well. But when they 
finally get things right an evil person comes for Caya. And 
now he has to rush to save her before it is too late.

Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you 
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, 
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it 
when you do; they value your opinions too.
