An enchanting tale of love set in medieval Scotland by the New York Times–bestselling author of Border Lord and Border Bride. Upon his release after seven years of imprisonment in the Tower of London, the Highland Chieftain Drummond Macqueen thinks of only one thing—revenge. But when he seeks out the treacherous bride who betrayed him, he instead finds a woman who is more like a stranger. Both lovely and defiant, it seems his deceitful wife has drastically—and inexplicably—changed. Seven years ago, Johanna took her dying sister’s place to raise her infant son, even if it meant sacrificing her own happiness. But when her sister’s husband Drummond—thought to be executed—shows up alive, Johanna’s precious independence is threatened. Soon Drummond’s bitterness gives way to passion, and Johanna’s soul-deep longing erupts. But when enemies of the past come back to settle old scores, the blossoming love may be crushed before it even has a chance to bloom. “So powerfully moving that the audience will feel that Ms. Lamb has exceeded her usual high standard of excellence . . . Just another tremendous novel from one of the greats.” —The Reader’s Voice “Arnette Lamb creates love stories that fire the heart and make your blood sing and your imagination soar! Chieftain is as enthralling, tempestuous, compelling, and intense as any of Ms. Lamb’s richly painted tales.” —RT Book Reviews

The concept of the Main Battle Tank emerged from the Centurion Universal tank that was developed at the end of World War II. Development of its successor began as early as 1951. The Chieftain incorporated significant innovations including a reclining driver position and two-piece ammunition for greater survivability. The tank entered service in 1967 and was the heaviest armed and armoured MBT within the NATO alliance. The Chieftain saw combat during the Iran-Iraq War, with the Kuwaitis during the 1990 Iraqi invasion and with the British Army during the Gulf War of 1990–91 as special-purpose variants. This book explores the design, development and operation of one of the most influential vehicles used in modern warfare.
