She never intended to take a husband…
The Duke of Manchester’s sister, Lady Sarah Lacey,
always abides by the rules of etiquette. Fate, however,
has no such confines. On a journey to the Scottish
Highlands, Lady Sarah is set upon by misfortune-leaving
her without carriage or chaperone, and left to the mercy
of a kind and handsome gentleman. Whom (in order to
secure a room at an inn) she announces is her husband.
When she proclaims they’re married in public, Professor
Braeden McKinnon can’t bring himself to correct the
lovely Lady Sarah. After all, her reputation would be
ruined. Nor can he tell her that her proclamation is not
only legally binding in Scotland, but sharing a room is
considered to be an act of consummation…
Now they are bound together until death do they
part-even if Sarah has no intention of becoming any man’s wife.
