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 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?
