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.
What Kind of Historical Romance Heroine Are You?
“Have a care with my girl, Mr. Waters. She needs protecting from prowling beasts, do remember,” Mrs. Middlebrook said.
Catherine said, “Mama, please.”
Mrs. Middlebrook did not acknowledge her daughter’s protest, nor did she heed it, but kept her blue eyed gaze firmly fixed on him. Alex bowed, and took her mother’s hand.
“Catherine need fear nothing so long as I am with her.”
Mary Elizabeth missed the by-play between them altogether. She was not one for subtleties of any kind, as she found them a complete waste of time.
“The lion is secure in his cage, and is no danger to anyone. Come, Alex, the Tower awaits.”
Mrs. Middlebrook only raised one elegant eyebrow at him. The Tower lion clearly was not the first beast that came to mind.
