Publisher's Summary

The Proposal

Driven to undo the evil wrought by her dead husband, Millicent Wentworth must find a way to save her estate and free the innocent people he enslaves. Her only hope is a marriage - in name only - to the notorious widower the Earl of Aytoun.

The Groom

Devastated by the tragic accident that killed his wife and left him gravely wounded, Lyon Pennington, fourth Earl of Aytoun, is tormented by the accusations that blame him for the catastrophe. Filled with despair, he lets his mother lure him into a marriage of convenience - for the sake of a good-hearted woman on the verge of financial ruin.

The Desire

Under Millicent's gentle gaze, Lyon begins to regain his strength and his wounded heart begins to heal. And soon Millicent discovers that beneath his unruly beard and grim demeanor, Lyon just may be the most handsome - and caring - man she's ever encountered. For the first time in her life, she realizes that she is alive - alive with a smoldering desire for the one man she'll love forever....

Contains mature themes.

A pleasure to read

This book was really fantastic. I really like this author. The characters are well developed. The story was delightful and frankly I cannot wait until the next book is available to listen to. I have not read this authors work but listed to the Scottish Relic series just based on the reviews and have been hooked since.
Lyon and Millicent were the perfect imperfect couple with scars and baggage that added depth to their characters.
The narrator was good and did not detract from the story. She was no Rosalind Landor or Davina Porter (two of my favorite narrators for Highlander stories) but she did a good job and kept the story engaging.
