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.
