Michael Stirling and his cousin, John, the Earl of Kilmartin, are as close as brothers. However, Michael is secretly in love with John's wife, Francesca Bridgerton. When John suddenly dies, Michael is wracked with guilt and pain. Even though he is determined to remain simply Francesca's friend and confidant, the temptation is far too great.

Lady Emma Avery has accidentally announced her engagement - to the most eligible man in England. As soon as it's discovered that Emma has never actually met the infamously attractive Duke of Ashbrooke, she'll no longer be a wallflower; she'll be a laughingstock. And then Ashbrooke does something Emma never expected. He plays along with her charade. A temporary betrothal to the irreproachable Lady Avery could be just the thing to repair Ashbrooke's tattered reputation.

I couldn't quit listening .. I had to know what would happen next. It it me was like seeing inside the mind of a man. A man who had such deep misguided feelings . I got angry at him several times. I also got so angry at the women. I could see some things unfolding the emotions that let their paths but I could not grasp how one lets their emotions go so wild. I wanted their common sense to wake up but alas when love and sex is involved things rarely go as they should ..

London, 1817. Stuck in a Mayfair ballroom thanks to his love-struck brother, highlander Arran MacLawry wants nothing but a bit of distraction from an arranged betrothal, and a clever, auburn-haired lass in a vixen's mask promises just that - until he discovers that she's the granddaughter of the Campbell, chief of clan MacLawry's longtime rival. Despite their families' grudging truce, falling for fiery Mary Campbell is a notion too outlandish even for this Highlander.
