What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor – an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene – seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather’s lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride.
But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury’s pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them – all big and brawny, six named Ian and all named MacFearson. The bane of Lincoln’s youth, Melissa’s stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness. Yet he is equally resolved to confront the peril – and to pursue his exquisite obsession all the way to London…and to the ends of the earth, if necessary.
Still mourning her mother’s death, Kimberly Richards is incensed by the determination of her father, the Earl of Amburough, to marry her off as quickly as possible – just to please the jealous lover he plans to wed. And since Kimberly harbours a deep-seated dislike of gold-diggers and the whole distasteful state of affairs, the feisty young heiress already despises the worthy suiter she encounters at Sherring Cross Estate: Lachlan MacGregor, the dashing, newly improvished Laird of Clan MacGregor.
A tryst with the handsome, haughty Lachlan seems dubious at best, especially since the rogue has designs on the married Duchess of Wrothston. But strange turns and outrageous circumstances promise to lead a woefully mismatched pair to a wildly unexpected destination- where a hard, resisting heart can open to the true glories of love.
Wildly unpredictable, the most desirable beauty in the land. Megan Penworthy has set her amourous sights on Ambrose St. James- a man she has never met but has every intention of marrying. And no other suiter will statisfy her- especially no the common, if uncommonly handsome, horse breeder, Devlin Jefferys.
Posing as lowborn Jefferys to escape a potentially fatal confrontation. Sir Ambrose is enthralled by the brazen, duke hunting redhead. Without revealing his true identity, he vows to seduce and tame her, thereby foiling Megan’s plans to marry the man of her dreams. Buth notorious rogue never imagined the enchanting schemer would turn out to be the only woman he would ever dream of marrying.
