After her engagement to a local landowner ends in scandal and recrimination, Miss Charlotte Warren vows never to marry. Her father might write to say he’s found her the perfect husband – she’s sticking to her spinsterish guns. But when in the middle of a spring flood, her father’s choice turns up on the doorstep under an unconvincing alias, she has no choice but to take him in.
That doesn’t mean she’s going to marry Lord Lyle. No way.
Except he’s very handsome… And he kisses like a dream…
And when a girl finds herself trapped alone in a great big house with a roguish Scottish earl, who knows what will happen? Even to the most resolute and independent lady.
Ewan Macrae, Earl of Lyle, doesn’t believe in love at first sight—until he sees Charlotte Warren’s portrait. One glimpse of the real Charlotte, and he knows this is the lassie he means to carry off to the Highlands as his bride.
But his beloved is no easy conquest. She’s stubborn and headstrong, and dead set against becoming a wife.
Will lashings of Scottish charm, some highly convenient privacy, a scattering of sizzling kisses, and an eventful day battling the elements to save the spring lambs combine to change Miss Warren’s mind about marriage?
They most definitely will, if this proud Scotsman has any say in the matter!
BIOGRAPHY I love writing historical romance for a living. So far I've published 11 multi award-winning stories for Avon HarperCollins and Hachette Grand Central and 24 books under my own steam. My books have also been translated into 23 languages.
I'm currently working on a series featuring some roguish Highlanders and the lassies who captivate them, called the Lairds Most Likely. The Laird's Willful Lass, The Laird's Christmas Kiss, The Highlander's Lost Lady, The Highlander's Defiant Captive and The Highlander's Christmas Quest are now out. Look for The Highlander's English Bride and The Highlander's Rescued Maiden in 2020.
When I'm not traveling the world in search of inspiration for my passionate romance novels, I live by the sea in Australia. I love to hear from readers via social media or email: email@example.com
