"fast-paced...humorous and sensual"--Publishers Weekly
Highlander Mary Elizabeth Waters doesn't want to marry anyone, especially an Englishman. But all that may change when the Duke of Northumberland catches her eye.
A foolproof plan to avoid marriage:
1. Always carry at least three blades.
2. Ride circles around any man.
3. Never get caught in a handsome duke's arms.
Wild Highlander Mary Elizabeth Waters is living on borrowed time. She's managed to dodge the marriage banns up to now, but even Englishmen can only be put off for so long...and there's one in particular who has her in his sights.
Harold Percy, Duke of Northumberland, is enchanted by the beautiful hellion who outrides every man on his estate and dances Scottish reels while the ton looks on in horror. The more he sees Mary, the more he knows he has to have her, tradition and good sense be damned. But what's a powerful man to do when the Highland spitfire of his dreams has no desire to be tamed...

Englishs charming third installment in her early 19th-century Broadswords and Ballrooms series (after How to Wed a Warrior) pairs up a hoydenish young Scottish woman and a proper English duke. Mary Elizabeth Waterss family wants her to marry, but she is determined to travel back to Scotland from London to live out her days as a spinster. That determination wavers when she meets the handsome Harold Harry Charles Percy, Duke of Northumberland, after arriving at his rural estate. The attraction between the pair is mesmerizing from the start, even though Harry doesnt correct Mary Elizabeths assumption that he is just a stable hand. Mary Elizabeths effervescent personality and her lust for life are refreshing given her eras expectations of highborn women. The fast-paced story and the humorous and sensual love scenes make up for some lack of character development. (Dec.)
