Alasdair Sinclair, the Earl of Sinclair and Montleith, has always been a man bold enough to accept any dare. But after losing his Highland regiment to the horrors of war, he builds an impenetrable fortress around his heart. He never expects to find that heart under siege by a determined English lady who storms the Returning Soldiers' Hospital looking for a soldier to adopt.
Phoebe Osborne founded "The Charlotte Society" with her two best friends in the hope of helping some poor soldier return to the life he left behind. Instead, she finds herself engaged in a battle of wits and wills with an infuriating Highlander who scorns her charity as pity. Despite his resistance to her charms, Alasdair's thick, black curls, piercing green eyes, and husky burr tempts her to surrender her kisses—and her heart.
Beneath Phoebe's cool blonde exterior, Alasdair discovers a passionate warmth that threatens to melt his every defense and challenges his warrior's heart to accept the most dangerous dare of all—falling in love...
