HE VOWED TO HUMBLE THE PROUD HIGHLAND BEAUTY. Her copper-gold hair outshone the wealth in her father's coffers. . . her lovely figure was as graceful on a galloping stallion as in the king's ballroom. Mary Kate MacPherson would attempt everything in her power to escape an arranged marriage with the arrogant clansman from the barbaric borderlands.

His teasing dark eyes lured every woman, from lusty scullery maid to aristocratic vixen. But all Sir Adam Douglas demanded from a wife was decorum.
