Heiress Lady Moira Kirkwood will do anything it takes to marry a laird to take her north - far, far away from London and her domineering mother. Unfortunately, a pair of gentlemen overhear her jest about Scotland and compromising a fellow if she has to. Before the sun has risen the next day, Moira's name and a scandalous wager have found themselves inside the infamous betting book at White's.
One penniless gentleman after another begs Gideon Baxter, Viscount Ainsely, for his assistance in wooing Lady Moira. Unfortunately, Gideon would like to woo the charming lady himself. If only she cared more for him than for the location of his estate, he'd could be assured of where her true feelings lie.
What members say
Short, sweet, and funny
Setting: 1813, London
Some novellas come across as undeveloped novels, with unformed characters and nebulous plots. That is definitely NOT the case with this sweet little story. The characters are lovable - or hateful - depending on what the author wanted. The plot is fully fleshed out and the ending is satisfying. The narration is good as well. Altogether worth the time and money.
DO NOT use a credit, but your credit card instead, since it is under $5.00.
