Lincoln Ross Burnett is no stranger to Scotland, however. The seventeenth Viscount Cambury, Lincoln once called this fair land home until as a boy of twelve he was sent away to live with relatives in London after his father’s death.

She is young, lovely, and possesses a sparkling wit, yet she knows she is but a simple orphaned country girl whose grandfather just happened to have been a nobleman and therefore feels dreadfully out of place. Luckily Ophelia, the daughter of a family friend, has been chosen to usher Sabrina through the perils and pitfalls of this all important first season. What better guide than this terribly sophisticated blond beauty who is the most sought after lady in the city?Even less keen to be in London is Duncan MacTavish. Having lived twenty one deliriously contented years in the Scottish Highlands, he has recently learned he is the sole heir of an English Marquis and is now required to assume his grandfather’s title and estates. Worse still, a betrothal has already been arranged without his consent to the ravishing, viper tongued Ophelia who has been heard to make scathing statements in public about her Scottish barbarian groom to be. Bad circumstance, however, can sometimes have distinctly pleasurable advantages especially when his unwanted intended’s sudden desire to repent brings the dashing highlander into close proximity with the enchanting Sabrina. Now this is a woman for whom Duncan would willingly abandon his beloved Scotland: a kindred spirit whose wit delights him…
and whose essence is the exquisite stuff of dreams. But duty and station forbid Sabrina’s and Duncan’s desired union. And a secret dwells in the lady’s past, and it threatens their romance. Under such adverse conditions a match that should be, a passion that must be, cannot possibly be unless true love can somehow, miraculously find a way.

But on her journey home, somethingunexpected happens…
