The Ward's Bride Publisher's Summary

Their marriage is forced. Their passion is real.

English knight Sir Adam Dayne is offered the ultimate prize by the earl who raised him: lordship of Langford castle.

Sir Adam relishes the prospect - until he meets the woman he is to wed.

Lady Cora Maxwell hates everything English, including the self-assured new lord who has claimed her hand in marriage. Desperate to return home to Scotland, Cora displays increasingly outrageous behavior in the hopes of dissuading the Englishman from the marriage. But when Adam proposes a unique challenge, Cora is forced to face her greatest fears and the burgeoning desire he has awakened in her.

The son of a baron, he has been reduced to stealing the resources he needs to reclaim his family legacy. Just when he's on the verge of success, his uncle asks him to put his plans on hold to help protect a wealthy countess. It's a distraction Geoffrey resents, even more so when he meets Lady Sara.
