Raised in rural isolation, Alyson Hampton is bereft after the death of her aristocratic English grandfather. Introduced to society, she is horrified to learn that her illegitimacy--and the wealth she's inherited--leave her a target for fortune hunters. Fleeing the only home she's ever known, she nearly falls prey to her devilish cousin, until a dashing Scotsman comes to her rescue.Thanks to the hated English, Rory, Laird Maclean, is the last of his family. He is a wanted rebel in England, a smuggler in the Americas, and intent on buying back his former home. Then the wealthiest--most virtuous--heiress in all the kingdom falls into his lap. What's a blackguard to do when smitten by this virtuous beauty? Alyson insists on marriage. Rory would sooner rob an Englishwoman than marry one. Even should love find a way, the Maclean is reluctant to trade her virtue for the price on his head...
