He’s the terror of the ton...
The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. 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.

“I came to apologize, Catherine. And I am making a hash of it, just as I made a hash of our dealings yesterday. I am sorry to intrude on your morning. But I cannot leave this anger between us. The kiss we shared…”
“I beg your pardon? What kiss?” she asked, trying to take a different tact by feigning ignorance.
If he was so indiscrete to discuss this openly in a garden only ten feet from the street, where anyone might hear, who knew who else he might tell? She could not admit to the kiss ever having happened. To kiss a man like that and not become his wife made her damaged goods. She could not afford to be ruined. Handsome, n’er do well Highlanders would simply have to step aside.
Ever since Christy English picked up a fake sword in stage combat class at the age of fourteen, she has lived vicariously through the sword-wielding women of her imagination. A banker by day and a writer by night, she loves to eat chocolate, drink too many soft drinks, and walk the mountain trails of her home in North Carolina.
