Even the best laid plans can fall apart when opposites attract…
Adaira Ferguson made a mistake. In her defense, it was an honest mistake. After all, how was she to know that the dangerously attractive man she imprisoned was an earl and not a spy? Her good intentions don’t mean anything to him, though. He’s out for revenge. And if he has his way, she’ll become the thing she hates most—a prim, proper, and boring lass. But if he thinks she’s going to give in without a fight, he’s got another thing coming…
Roark, the Earl of Clarendon, values control and propriety above all else. Matters of the heart are of no interest to him. His ill-fated marriage rid him of any romantic notions he’d ever had. So taking his vengeance on the free-spirited Scottish hoyden who falsely imprisoned him will be simple. The unwanted feelings she stirs him? Well…those are infinitely more complicated.
Caught between revenge and the dictates of proper society, can Adaira and Roark find the happily ever after they never knew they wanted? Or are they destined to remain at odds forever?
