Laird Ian McKay of Graenfrae needs a wife. Under the terms of his stepfather's will, Ian can only inherit the money he desperately needs to keep Graenfrae running if he marries within a year. Worse, the Scottish laird must find an English bride. Betrayed by a woman once before, Ian has no desire to repeat the experience. Yet honor demands he take his vows seriously, which rules out a marriage in name only.
Realizing he has no choice, Ian quickly lists his requirements for a proper bride. She must be plain, beyond the first flush of youth, and her dowry should not be a large one. Surely such a woman would be unlikely to betray him, thrilled by an offer of marriage, and suited to life at Graenfrae. Ian can think of no better place to search for an English bride than London, during the season.
Lady Annabelle is in
Annabelle is quite surprised when Ian McKay appears to be interested in her. When Ian broaches the subject of marriage, she is less than thrilled to discover why he deems her the perfect bride. She may meet his requirements, but he certainly doesn't meet hers!
Ian can't believe Annabelle refused to marry him. He doesn’t have time to spare and for some reason, no other woman but Annabelle will do. Will Ian find a way to change her mind before it's too late?
