Laird McLaren is as large as he is annoying… Lady Sophie Everclear doesn’t regret fleeing the rake who attempted to trap her into marriage, But perhaps she should not have stowed away on a ship bound for Scotland. The problems? There are too many to count. But the largest, most annoying one is Captain Ewan McLaren. The tall and brawny Scot says exactly what he thinks and he doesn’t think much of Sophie. Still. He’s all she’s got and fortunately for her his heart is even bigger than his lectures. Which makes her wonder. What else, beside talking, might his mouth be good at?
The woman has got to be daft… Any woman as beautiful as Lady Sophie ought to know better than to attempt to hide out on a ship full of men. If Ewan were smart, he’d drop her at the nearest port because having a woman like her on board is nothing but trouble. But one look into her large blue eyes and he knows he can’t. He’s always had a soft heart for a woman in need and Sophie manages to be as endearing as she is annoying. And then there’s the fact that she steals his breath with every wayward glance. He doesn’t want a woman in life but the longer he’s with her, the more he wonders if Sophie might just be the one who makes him break all the rules.
