Landing a Laird (Novella) by Jane Charles

Heiress Lady Moira Kirkwood will do anything it takes to marry a laird to take her north - far, far away from London and her domineering mother. Unfortunately, a pair of gentlemen overhear her jest about Scotland and compromising a fellow if she has to. Before the sun has risen the next day, Moira's name and a scandalous wager have found themselves inside the infamous betting book at White's.

One penniless gentleman after another begs Gideon Baxter, Viscount Ainsely, for his assistance in wooing Lady Moira. Unfortunately, Gideon would like to woo the charming lady himself. If only she cared more for him than for the location of his estate, he'd could be assured of where her true feelings lie.

***This novella (approximately 22,000 words) was originally published in the anthology The Betting Season, and the collection Scots, Spies and Salacious Lies. It is available now by itself for the first time.***

About the Author

Jane Charles has lived in the Midwest her entire life. As a child she would more likely be found outside with a baseball than a book in her hand. In fact, Jane hated reading until she was sixteen. Out of boredom on a long road trip she borrowed her older sister’s historical romance and fell in love with reading. She long ago lost count of how many fiction novels she has read over the years and her love for them never died. Along with romance she has a passion for history and the two soon combined when she penned her first historical romance. What turned into a hobby became a passion, which has been fully supported by her husband, three children and three cats.

This is another fun novella centered around the scandal of the betting book at White's. I read this as part of the anthology: Scots, Spies, and Salacious Lies. Lady Moira has told her friends she only wants to marry a Scotsman because she can't wait to get away from her mother. Scotland is somewhere her mother has vowed never to go. Unfortunately, Moira is overheard and another bet is placed in the book. Now the suitors are coming out of the woodwork and asking Gideon Baxter for advice. Soon Moira and Gideon are spending more time together and becoming more attracted to one another. Can she go against her vow and fall for an English lord? Just where is Gideon's estate, anyway? Will any Scot do, or can she really find true love?
