In Book One, Andrew, a Scotsman with a business in America, and Ria, from Raleigh but
now living in New Jersey, met and fell deeply in love, but Ria is a free spirit and was in no hurry to accept a ring.
Andrew finally managed to get a diamond on her finger, and both families were delighted, but now she’s reluctant to make wedding plans. He’s promised to wait as long as necessary, but he’s not happy about it.
In the meantime, he takes Ria to Scotland to meet his family, and while there, she becomes friends with a young Texas woman who’s now a countess.
Andrew’s trying to be patient, but while he’s waiting, they run into a major problem: After he forbids Ria to go shopping in a blizzard, she rebels by announcing he can no longer discipline her, and the intensely intimate relationship they’ve built starts unraveling.
How will they get their relationship back on track, and what will it take for Andrew to finally get Ria to the altar for the Christmas wedding she’s always dreamed of?
Publisher’s Note: This love story includes scenes of domestic discipline.
