"Come, lass. Get on a plane with me."
After a business deal goes awry, Laird Callum McRae is in over his head, struggling to keep his castle afloat. He knows exactly what he has to do to save his family of brothers. Collecting a debt from the corrupt man who swindled him is his only mission. But when he meets a compassionate and determined woman, his plans change.
Now, he needs to get the girl while confronting her father...
Mathilda Storm will do anything for her sister—even if it means entering into a contract for a loveless marriage. After all, it will solve her family's problems. But she doesn't count on meeting a broad-shouldered, rugged Scottish laird. And resisting him is harder than she imagined. As the chemistry between Callum and Mathilda ignites, Mathilda is torn between her desire and her need to help her family. Can the practical daughter marry the Scot without losing her heart along the way?

Fae - "I LOVED THIS BOOK! Callum is freaking adorable. I want all the sequels yesterday. It was such a good read. I burned straight through it. I cannot wait for more!"
Brittany - "This book was so adorable and amazing and I don't have enough good things to say about it! I loved Callum. I loved his family. And I CANNOT wait for the rest of this series. Please please please tell me we get books for the Twins at some point?!?!"
Paula - "I loved this book! It had all that I would expect with hot Scots and rambling castles. The chemistry was hot between Mathilda and Callum. I had to giggle when I discovered that I was reading this book with my own manufactured Scottish brogue! The detail to the culture was so explicit that I was thinking in Scottish too. Can't wait for more."
ChikaP - "Callum McRae is tall, sweet, sexy, and loyal. What more can you ask for in a hero? Add to that his Scottish accent and there are no words to describe that kind of perfection. His heroine is Mathilda who is confident, independent, sassy, and knows what she wants out of life. Reading their story was an absolute pleasure and one that you don't want to miss out on! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a super steamy and sweet romance (essentially the perfect kind of romance)!"
