The only thing worse than being hand-fasted to the Devil of Jedburgh was falling in love with him.

Raised on rumors of The Devil of Jedburgh, Breghan McAllen doesn't want an arranged marriage to the beast. The arrogant border laird is not the romantic, sophisticated husband
Breghan dreams of—despite the heat he stirs within her.
In need of an heir, Arran has finally agreed to take a wife, but when he sees Breghan's fragile beauty, he's furious. He will not risk the life of another maiden by getting her with child. Lust prompts him to offer a compromise: necessary precautions, and hand-fasting for a year and a day, after which Breghan will be free.
For a chance to control her own future, Breghan makes a deal with the Devil. Passion quickly turns to love, but Arran still has no intention of keeping the lass, or making her a mother. He loves her too much to lose her. But when a treasonous plot threatens queen and country, Breghan has to prove only she is woman enough to stand by his side. (Goodreads)

The Devil of Jedburgh by Claire Robyns was fabulous! This book is what all Highlans book lovers want to read. The intertwining of actual characters with the fictional characters (and some dramatic scenes of the harsh cruelty of the age) contributes to the realism and magnetism of the growing relationship between spirited Breghan McAllen and the Devil of Jedburgh, Laird Arran Kerr.

Scared to death by the rumors of the Laird's reputation, Breghan runs away when her parents refuse to withdraw their marriage arrangement with the Devil and she encounters no other than the Devil himself.
From that first meeting between the fiery Breghan and the sexy and arrogant Arran, you are hooked. I was quickly drawn into this highly detailed story. It is a fast-paced, exciting read with plenty of heat between Arran and Breghan. This is the kind of Scottish romance I love reading. I highly recommend The Devil of Jedburgh and will be reading more by Claire Robyns!
