Men in kilts, swords and castles, a little whisky and a lot of romance.

Five lessons in pleasure. One lesson in love.

They’ll never marry. Not again, anyway. Or so they thought…

Highlander Graeme Kennedy has no intention of finding another wife. He’s perfectly content to focus his energy on becoming the best laird Killeaggain Tower has ever known. But then a beautiful and fiercely independent governess arrives and forces him to question everything…

All widow Berget Jonston wants is her freedom. She refuses to be manipulated into yet another loveless, arranged marriage. Escaping to the Highlands was her only option. She just never expected to encounter the intimidating and brawny Graeme in her new home—a man who affects her as no one ever has…

If Graeme and Berget have any hope of overcoming their painful pasts—and the threats that have followed Berget to Scotland—they’ll need to rely on each other…and on their newfound love. But when all is said and done, will their passion be enough to ensure them a happily ever after?

Though this book can easily be read as a stand-alone, most readers prefer to read the series in order.

Two rebellious souls… An innocent deception… One scorching catastrophe…

Fenella Franklin is too tall, too intelligent, and has no title. Her talents lie in numbers and a keen business mind, not in the art of flirtation. When she becomes the object of a cruel wager during her come-out in London, she vows to put off the penniless noblemen vying for her sizeable dowry. But her season is cut short after her mother discovers the subterfuge, and Fenella retreats to Scotland.

Lachlan MacNaughton has neither the temperament nor the patience to be the next MacNaughton chief, preferring to knock heads together rather than placate bickering clansmen. He readily accepts a reprieve to help with the family’s textile mill in Glasgow. A sizzling chance encounter in the rain introduces him to the new female bookkeeper. His grandfather may want him back in the Highlands, but his heart has been lost in the Lowlands.

The attraction between Fenella and Lachlan sparks a passion not even two rebellious souls can deny.
