Nightriders / by Hannah Howell -- The Highland bride / by Lynsay Sands.
Summary
"Cathal MacNachton and Connall MacAdie are cousins bound by far more than blood ties and the rugged Highland landscape their clan calls home. The ancient curse of their ancestry has fated them to live by night with an unquenchable thirst that neither can tame. The only thing that can save their souls is marriage to Outsiders - mortals whose untainted blood will weaken the curse in their children and break the chains of fear that have made their clan a breed apart. Bridget Callan and Eva Caxton are the women who will shape the clan's destiny. Marriage to these strange and mysterious men will rescue each of them from desperate circumstances - and draw them into a web of danger, desire, and intrigue"--Page 4 of cover.

Summary
Pregnant as the result of an adulterous affair, Hester Prynne pays for her sin publicly while her unnamed lover wrestles with his conscience in private. But Hester transforms her shameful badge - the letter A sewn from red cloth - into a gorgeous emblem of honor as she earns both spiritual redemption and the respect of her Puritan peers. This production of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic The Scarlet Letter was called "A completely faithful, totally fascinating dramatization" by the Los Angeles Times. With Meg Foster as Hester Prynne, John Heard as Reverend Dimmesdale, and Kevin Conway as Roger Chillingworth.
