From Allison Butler, bestselling author of The Healer, comes a sexy Scottish romance about a man in search of a bride, a woman in search of a home and an inconvenient attraction that can't be denied.
To fulfil his father's dying wish, Border laird Lachlan Elliot must marry and sire a legitimate heir, cementing his family's name in the tumultuous borderlands. But his marriage will be one of convenience.
Lachlan has no time for the pain and betrayal of love, and his land and position must always come first. So even when the spirited thief he catches stealing his horse turns out to be breathtaking – and appropriate – he vows to marry her, bed her, but never love her.
Kenzie never wanted an arranged marriage, but to be forced to wed the domineering laird who catches her thieving from his lands is even worse. Feisty, strong–willed and determined to make her own way, Kenzie may have no choice but to agree to the marriage, but she will never give up her independence. Lachlan may own her body, but he will never own her heart.
Shane MacLeod is a man of many talents and titles. He’s a Highlander, a ship captain, and a member of the Knights Templar. When he sets out to sea bound for an important meeting of Templars, he realizes too late the lad his cook hired is a girl. And when that girl turns out to be an earl’s daughter, he soon adds “husband” to his list of titles.
Forced into a temporary marriage with the bold and handsome Highlander, Abigail has no interest in remaining as virtuous as the honorable Shane would have her stay. But as Shane’s resolve weakens, an old family enemy seeks to destroy any happiness Shane might find with his new bride.

But when Serena challenges Malcolm's authority—and engages him in a risky flirtation—all bets are off. When the battle heats up, it's anyone's guess as to who's seducing whom...and who'll surrender first.
