Book Blurb:

She woke up married… And then she ran.

When recent widow Georgette Thorold wakes up in a Scottish inn with a wedding ring on her finger and lacking all memory of how she came to be there, she does what any well-bred lady with a modicum of sense and a distrust of marriage would do: she panics, clocks the wickedly handsome stranger in her bed over the head with a chamber pot, and runs.

James McKenzie, Esquire has either spent the evening protecting a very naïve, and—dare he say it—very drunk young lady from the advances of every disreputable character in the town of Moraig, or he has gone and married a pretty, scheming thief. Not that his own head is entirely clear on the matter, but when the woman in question repays his kindness with a knock on the head, the bill for her room, and the theft of his purse, an embarrassed James is determined to track her down and show her she picked the wrong solicitor to swindle.

As Georgette sets out to discover exactly what happened during her forgotten night, she uncovers a man that seems far more a hero than a rake. But when they finally meet, instead of sweeping her into his arms and kissing her senseless, he serves her with a summons, claiming she is a thief. Now the fight is on, and the only question is was it a night worth remembering? Or a mistake they would both rather forget?

Book Blurb:

David Cameron has been tricked. After bringing his supposedly ailing mother to Brighton to take the waters, he’s found himself bombarded with young ladies of marriageable age, while his mother has made a marked improvement. Seeking respite from the hordes, he retreats to a beach he hasn’t seen in years–and finds a woman he’s never quite been able to forget.

Caroline Tolbertson just wants to be left alone. But her mother is determined to see her married off, no matter Caroline’s protests–or her embarassing lack of suitors. Seeing David Cameron, her childhood crush, again sets her heart racing, but she’s older and wiser now. And no, that wasn’t her heart sinking when David suggested a faux courtship instead of the real thing.

But Caroline has never been very good at following the rules, and the fake attraction soon grows into the real thing. Now Caroline has more scandalous pursuits in mind and David is finding it very hard to say no to his gorgeous friend. Will giving in to temptation send them both down a path they each claim to abhor–straight to the altar?

Excerpt:

From What Happens in Scotland

A three-legged dog greeted James and William as they walked into the courtyard of the cottage James called home. The dog, whose name was Gemmy, barked and lurched around in unsteady excitement. The familiar sight of the shaggy yellow terrier and the small stone house where James had rested his clear head every night for the past year could not dispel the knowledge of where he apparently laid his drunken head last night.

He tried in vain to block out the circumstances of the morning as he looked around the front garden for a place to tie the black mare. Preferably, some place out of striking range.

Patrick’s dog needed every available limb it had left.

“Down, Gemmy!” James commanded. The dog dutifully dropped to all threes and wiggled in the dirt, whining his enthusiasm rather than expending it in further movement. James looped the mare’s reins over the post of a makeshift pen that had been constructed near the corner of the yard. Patrick’s newest orphaned lamb paced on the other side of the rails, bleating for its bottle.

“Like your dinner that fresh do you?” William joked, jerking a thumb toward the pen.

“We only eat the ones Patrick loses,” James told him, wondering again why he was still tolerating his brother’s nettlesome presence.
