Would you deceive the person you love to protect them—even knowing they’d hate you afterward?
Yvette Stapleton has no need for a husband. Ever. Possessed of a fortune, she’s determined to forge her own future without matrimony’s confining bonds. Besides, she’s yet to meet a man who doesn’t find her wealth more alluring than her. That is, until a dangerously handsome man, rescues her off London’s docks. Viscount Ewan Sethwick has been sent to escort Yvette to her cousin’s and to keep her safe from the madman pursuing her. After succumbing to Ewan’s kisses, and on the verge of giving him her heart, she discovers he’s been misleading her.
Ewan, also Laird McTavish of Craiglocky Keep, has one last mission before resigning his position as a covert agent: to oust a War Office traitor. He’ll stop at nothing to succeed. Except exploit the woman who captured his interest months ago. As perils mounts, they flee to Scotland, the only place Ewan is confident he can keep Yvette safe. However, on the journey, dangerous circumstances force them into assuming the role of a married couple.
Incensed upon discovering the marriage is legal under Scottish law, Yvette is determined to have the union annulled. But Ewan’s just as resolute she’ll remain his wife . . .
