Then there is the Fitzalan feud with the MacLeans, who are demanding the return of an heirloom they claim has been stolen from them. They are desperate to obtain it and attack and kidnap Rupert. Finally he meets the beautiful Celina Stirling who is engaged to her cousin, Hamish MacLean. Celina is shattered when faced with the dark side of the MacLeans and their hatred for the Fitzalan Clan.
