A Heart of Stone

A Heart of Stone is #114 in the Pink Collection and was published in March 2014. Incidentally, or maybe it's just a story, this title was published around 1998 with a bodice ripper type cover. If anyone has a copy, I'd love to see a photo! I looked high and low for it!

Vanora is called back home after the death of her father and her brother is now the head of the clan. He wants her to steal back the stone that the rival MacFiles stole and that is important to the chieftain. She gains entrance to their castle by masquerading as a librarian but soon realizes that this earl isn't like she was taught. Soon she is able to help him and ends up falling in love. How can these two from rival clans be together?
