Context: In Chapter 2, Laird Garrick MacLean encounters a burning carriage on the hillside upon returning home to Westmoreland late one night. He rescues an injured woman from the wreckage and realizes it is Lady Brenna Stewart, the woman he once loved and had intended to marry before he left the Highlands over a year ago in hopes of rescuing his sister. Garrick is bringing an unconscious Brenna back to Westmoreland to provide her care when she awakens in the excerpt below.

Excerpt from Chapter 2 of The Lost Laird from Her Past:
‘Blast,’ she mumbled, trying to push herself up and away from the man who was definitely not Arthur for a better look at him. Had she been kidnapped?

‘Best save your energy for something other than curses, Brenna.’

She stilled. She knew that voice. Even in a wave of confusion, his voice anchored her, as it always had. But it couldn’t be, could it? He was dead. She fumbled her way through the wool covering her. Finally it gave way, and a strip of moonlight revealed the rugged, familiar shadowy profile of a man, a man she had once loved. She sucked in a breath. Gripping the horse’s mane, she turned closer to him for a better look. Everyone had believed him dead, including her, but here he was. Alive.

‘Garrick?’ she asked, still uncertain if her injuries and confusion filled her vision with delusions and memories of the past.

‘Aye,’ he answered. ‘Glad to see you awake. Who is Arthur? And why were you travelling without your father’s men? You could have been killed.’

‘You are not dead.’

He met her gaze. ‘Nay,’ he answered. His words were flat, lifeless things floating in the air.

‘Am I dead?’ she asked. It sounded more logical than being here in his arms after so much time had passed without a single word. After long believing him dead. After grieving him for months and forcing herself to move on and let go of her hopes and dreams of their life together.

‘You are alive, as am I.’
