Sir Roger is determined to win her heart…
A wealthy India nabob, Sir Roger returns to England intent on making Sussex his home. After purchasing a nearby castle with the intention of refurbishing it, he falls in love with Madeline Piper who finds his Scottish heritage repugnant. When her family’s fortunes fail, Sir Roger offers relief in the form of his hand in marriage, but only if Madeline will break every rule and bring him into fashion in their local, insular society. If she fails to do so, he will not marry her. But if she succeeds, how can he marry a woman who will always despise his Scottish roots?
But their betrothal goes against her every principle…
From the time that her mother died, Madeline has always obeyed society’s rules. She’s upheld them and applauded them. Keeping wild Scotsmen out of her neighborhood seemed a sensible course of action, until her father lost the family fortune while gaming in Brighton. Accepting Sir Roger’s terms for their betrothal gives her the headache, but what else can she do when her three younger sisters depend on her to make a suitable marriage and save their family from ruin? But as Sir Roger’s secret courtship progresses, she finds her heart slipping to the man who wears the kilt. Yet how can she ever love a Scotsman?
