New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and see what she's capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff, sexy, silver-fox boss. Tavish McKenzie doesn't need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory -- even if she's infuriatingly good at it. And when Portia discovers that he's the secret son of a duke, Tav becomes her newest makeover project.
