'Never Kiss a Highlander' by Michele Sinclair is Book Six in "The McTiernays". This is the story of Hamish MacBrieve and Mairead MacMathain. I have read the other books in this series but feel you can make this a standalone book if you choose.
Hamish has been working with the Elite McTiernay guardsman after leaving his brother who is the laird of Foinaven Castle to start out on his. Hamish was hurt that the women he thought he loved married his brother. Now he has returned to help his brother and to be done with his family.

But he knows Mairead loved her family and wouldn't leave and he feels he won't stay...so they try to fight their growing feelings...but love doesn't stop.
