A Sporting Chance . . . Miss Derrien Edwards is not a typical Scottish lass. Opinionated and headstrong, she dares to go where no woman has gone before: the golf course at St. Andrews. With her bouncy blond curls tucked under a woolen cap, and her freckles hidden by smudges of dirt, Derrien satisfies her love of the links by passing as a caddie — a young male caddie.
The Viscount Marquand is not a typical English lord. He spurns the gaming halls and brothels frequented by other men of the ton. But when his ne'er-do-well father bets their ancestral home on the outcome of a golf game, it's up to Marquand to save his beloved estate. His trip to Scotland to learn the game throws his well-ordered life into turmoil, especially when he's paired up with an impudent caddie who goes by the name of "Derry" — and when he takes a chance on a love that's not par for the course.
