Description from Amazon.com:
He’s the terror of the ton…
The plan is simple: 1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season; 2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord; 3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything-even the English. He just didn’t expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot…or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won’t allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians…no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn’t part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this “proper” English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves…and nothing will stop him from having her.
Alex is a highlander whose only mission in London is to see his sister properly wed. His sister Mary is a wild-child who has no desire to be wed but has found a good friend in Catherine. Catherine is totally attracted to Alex, Alex is in lust with Catherine, but he’s not going to marry and she knows she must marry to save her family. Then there is Arthur, kind, considerate, generous, an aristocrat with money and wanting to marry Catherine. This is a triangle that Alex is determined to break apart.
Christy English has written a well plotted and sometimes hilarious novel about the societal pressures of Regency England and what a lady and gentleman must do to just get along. We know that Alex is the one true love of Catherine and she knows also, but she must do her duty for her family and be honorable. That means she must marry Arthur.
I found this a most enjoyable light hearted romance with lots of steamy kisses and more.
