He’s the scourge of the Season...
Reasons to quit London:
1. It’s not the Highlands.
2. It will never be the Highlands.
3. It’s full of the bloody English.
When his wild spitfire of a sister makes a scene by drawing a claymore in Hyde Park, Highlander Robert Waters knows something must be done. To forestall the inevitable scandal, he hires widowed Prudence Whittaker to teach his sister how to be a lady—never expecting to find unbridled passion beneath the clever Englishwoman’s prim exterior.
Mrs. Whittaker is a fraud. Born Lady Prudence Farthington, daughter of the ruined earl of Lynwood, she’s never even been married. In order to make her way in the world, she has to rely on her wits and a web of lies...lies a sexy Highlander is all too close to unraveling.
He swears he will possess her; she vows he will do nothing of the sort. Yet as passions heat, Prudence comes to realize the illicit pleasure that can be had in going toe-to-toe with a Scot.

English's second Broadswords and Ballrooms Regency (after How to Seduce a Scot) sizzles with the tension of unbridled passion between a Scottish Highlander and his sister's companion. Highlander Robert Waters is determined to help his sister, Mary Elizabeth, make a good match. He hires proper English widow Prudence Whittaker to be his sister's companion and train her out of her hoydenish ways. Robert is handsome and charming and has always enjoyed the company of beautiful women, but is not the type of man to marry. He's surprised to find himself attracted to the dowdy Mrs. Whittaker and is convinced that there is a beautiful woman hidden beneath her ugly spectacles and drab gowns. As he gets to know Pru better, he admires her tenacity and spirit even as he grows more attracted to her. Pru feels herself succumbing to their mutual attraction, but she's afraid that Robert will back off if he learns that she is an earl's unwed daughter masquerading as a widow. Sensuous love scenes are interspersed with humor and a touch of mystery in this enchanting page-turner.
