The notorious Gavin St. James, Earl of Thorne, has always used his seductive green eyes and slightly menacing charm to get what he wants—including too many women married to other men. But now, Gavin wants to put his shady past behind him. Step one: to take possession of the estate bordering Inverthorne Keep. The rightful owner of the land has been off in America for years, leaving the property ripe for the taking…until the missing heiress returns to Scotland to claim what is hers.
Tessa Ross has come back with a vengeance—and in a pair of trousers. That’s just one way in which being abroad changed the beautiful lass. As Gavin is about to discover, Tessa has a whole world of dangerous secrets from her time spent in the Wild West. . . and if the truth about her travels comes out, Tessa will be shunned. A hasty marriage is her only option and Gavin, who has taken a shine to her—and her estate—is her best chance. What begins as a scandalous proposition slowly turns into something more passionate than either Tessa or Gavin ever expected. Could it be that true love has been waiting at home in the Highlands all along?
