Historical Romance - Hero's Mom tries to kill son and daughter in law for money and power

First I would like to thanks in advance for any reply or suggestion :smileyhappy:

I read the story a couple of years ago (2005 or 2006) but I'll try to remember as much as I can.
The story is set in the old days (around 1900 century). It begins when the the heroine's house is under attack and the hero saves her but but she doesnt realize that and she hits him on the head with her brooch which leaves a scar. The villian that attacked her house is the hero's uncle. (The heroine does not know that but the hero does)
After some time they meet at the Kings palace and she protects him by not telling the judge he was there when her house was attacked.
The hero's mom tries to separate them and try to get them killed them at various points through out the book. The hero is either from Scotland or Ireland and the heroine is from England. He is banished from the England due to his temper but the heroine follows him to his place. I think they call it Isles or something. The hero's sister marries the best friend but the uncle kills her. The hero's father was killed by the mom, uncle and a guy disguised as a monk. I think the heroine's name is Geneive Flemming and the hero's name is Alex or Ally ( dont really remember) and the best friends name is Davey. I hope it sounds familiar to someone. The story was really good. Thanks in advance.
