The plan is simple: 1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
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.
How to Seduce a Scot was a cute, in a mature audience kind of way, highland romance.
Catherine needs to marry well to save her family from a very bad financial situation. Bottom line, she needs a husband and she needs to find him fast.
Alexander Waters is attending the season with his younger sister, Mary Elizabeth. Catherine and Mary Elizabeth become friends. Mary Elizabeth is not keen on finding a husband or even attending the season but she trudges along, not hiding under the regular social civilities.
Catherine has captured the eye of Lord Farleigh but she has also caught the attention Alex. Lord Farleigh offers her the stability she’s looking for but no chemistry. Alex quickly steals her heart…unfortunately, Alex isn’t looking to be tide down by a wife.
This is a very slow building romance. There is chemistry but you just didn’t feel the passion. Enjoyable but nothing that jumps out to make it more than a very nice romance…
and that is exactly what it was…
a very nice and easy romance.
