In an attempt to escape what was seeming like a forced marriage, Mercy Rutherford  traveled to Scotland to escape the possessive grip of her fiancé. Unfortunately, on the last leg of her trip to see her grandmother a monster flew out of the sky and landed on her carriage.  Well, not really a monster but some kind of flying machine and a very abrupt and man who was more worried about his machine than the condition of she and her maid.  However, after introductions were made Ross Caithart brought her to his castle and set her maids broken arm and stitched Mercy’s gash in her head.

To all intents and purposes Ross Caithart most certainly was mad. Handsome beyond words, he’s also causing an irresistible flutter in Mercy’s stomach beyond reason. But as soon as Mercy mentioned her grandmother – Ross made the connection and made haste to get her out of his castle and up to Mercy’s kin.  However, if Mercy was expecting loving arms happy to see her, she was sadly mistaken and her arrival was met with contempt and derision.  All because of arriving in the Caithart carriage?   

When Mercy’s fiancé Gregory arrives to see their arranged marriage to its bitter end, Mercy desperately turns to Ross with an offer of her fortune—and her hand in marriage.  The Earl of Morton has a reputation for being an eccentric, but even he is hesitant to engage in such a rash proposition—no matter how utterly beguiled he is by the wildly independent American heiress. And yet, with so much at stake, how can he possibly say no?

Bottom line I truly enjoyed this novel as much as the rest of the titles this author has put out over the years.  This has just the right amount of action, adventure, sensualness, and rivalry making for a fascinating read.
