He's the terror of the ton...
The plan is simple:
- Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
- Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
- Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn't expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot...or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won't allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians...no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn't part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this "proper" English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves...and nothing will stop him from having her.
Catherine cast her last knife at the cork board, hitting the center of the bull’s eye, which in this case was the outline of a somewhat menacing ruffian. Someone, Catherine suspected Miss Waters, had drawn a jaunty top hat on him to indicate his Englishness.
“I must applaud you efforts, Miss Middlebrook. It seems you have killed our pirate outright with a clean blow to the heart.”
The hot, honeyed tones of Alexander Waters’ voice seemed to caress her, and she felt her cursed blush rise into her cheeks unbidden. Her stays were too tight suddenly, as if she had run a mile, though she rarely walked anywhere in her life save to church when they were home in Devon.
