From the author's website: The last thing Douglas Dubh MacKinnon needed was a wife, particularly a headstrong, pampered "princess" whose father is one of the most powerful dukes in England. After all, Douglas is already promised to wed another... a union that was to have put an end to a bitter centuries-old clan feud.
Lady Elizabeth Drayton doesn't wish to be married to Douglas any more than he wishes to be wed to her. Still, she agrees to her father's stipulation that they live as husband and wife—in all ways but one—for a period of two months. She has the duke's word that when this "temporary" marriage is annulled, she will be given her freedom, allowed to live the rest of her life by her own terms...
In the wake of the Jacobite's final attempt to restore the Stuarts to the royal throne, a prince is running for his life in the isles...and two strangers who should have been enemies, are thrown together by chance. They soon discover, however, that appearances aren't always what they seem, leaving them both to wonder... just who is the deceived—and who is the deceiver?

Angered by his daughter's secret writings on female equality, and in need of an heir, the Duke of Sudeleigh has hit upon the perfect scheme: He'll marry the feisty lass off to the man of his choosing. But Lady Elizabeth abhors arranged marriages, and she'll do anything to avoid one--even wed a Scottish farmer.
Elizabeth does not realize, however, that the man she assumes is a poor crofter is an aristocrat every bit as prominent as the duke. Now her father and her chosen groom-to-be have hatched a plan to catch Elizabeth at her own game. But with one deception following another, heartbreak is inevitable...unless true love can save the day.
