Strathnaver, Scotland, Summer 1792. The Highland Clearances abruptly destroy Artis MacKay’s idyllic world. Patrick Steller, the Countess of Sutherland’s estate manager murders Artis’ family and burns her village. Forced into indentured servitude in the colonies, she becomes a Virginia plantation servant. After seven long years, Artis receives her freedom dues—land in Kentucky.
Bear MacKee grew up in the Highlands too, but disease claims his parents on his family’s voyage to the colonies. Adopted by the Wyllies, he becomes a loyal and fiercely protective brother who journeys with them to Kentucky. With his brothers safely settled, the time comes for Bear to find his own wife and future.
Their past and their destiny entwined, Artis and Bear meet and pledge their love. But a cold-blooded old enemy and a ruthless new adversary threaten to crush Artis and Bear’s chance for happiness. And the dark side of nature becomes a frightening adversary too. For love to triumph in the wilderness, they must evoke the MacKay Clan motto—Manu Forti—with a strong hand.
Compassionately written, richly authentic, powerfully dramatic, Dorothy Wiley’s Amazon best-selling books—epic love stories of the frontier—make readers both weep and laugh while they fall in love with the characters.

FRONTIER HIGHLANDER VOW OF LOVE Reviews
"Having read the first three books in this exciting series, I was looking forward to this fourth book. I was not disappointed! This book has it all...couldn't put it down, wouldn't put it down. I knew in the first few pages that the author had created a woman strong enough for Bear. Readers of this series have a crush on Bear so our expectations for a great love were high. She allowed Bear to fall in love without restraint, no games, no doubts. This is an exciting, exhilarating, warm. loving read. Read it now!" Amazon Customer Review
"Frontier Highlander Vow of Love is the fourth book in Ms.Wiley's epic American Wilderness Series Romances. It continues the gripping saga of the courageous men and women who faced the constant dangers and hardships of traveling to and settling in Kentucky in 1797. As with any series, readers anticipate an enjoyable read with each new book. Sometimes books fall short of readers' expectations for one reason or another. This is certainly not the case with Frontier Highlander Vow of Love. Ms. Wiley fulfills readers' expectations with heart wrenching moments of danger, thrilling scenes of fast-paced action, and character portrayals which run the gamut of loving and honorable to abhorrent and murderous.
Wiley's writing style is comparative to classic novels which have stood the test of time. Readers are caught up in her memorable tales of life, death, honor, love, and hate. Her writing is gripping and holds the reader spellbound until the end. They are books to be savored and read again. Like Manu Forti, meaning 'with a strong hand,' the clan motto of the MacKay clan in Frontier Highlander Vow of Love, Ms. Wiley's writing skills are powerful and compelling and her books are not to be missed."
