Blame it on the rain…
After her engagement to a local landowner ends in scandal and recrimination, Miss Charlotte Warren vows never to marry. Her father might write to say he’s found her the perfect husband – she’s sticking to her spinsterish guns. But when in the middle of a spring flood, her father’s choice turns up on the doorstep under an unconvincing alias, she has no choice but to take him in.
That doesn’t mean she’s going to marry Lord Lyle. No way.
Except he’s very handsome… And he kisses like a dream…
And when a girl finds herself trapped alone in a great big house with a roguish Scottish earl, who knows what will happen? Even to the most resolute and independent lady.
Ewan Macrae, Earl of Lyle, doesn’t believe in love at first sight—until he sees Charlotte Warren’s portrait. One glimpse of the real Charlotte, and he knows this is the lassie he means to carry off to the Highlands as his bride.
But his beloved is no easy conquest. She’s stubborn and headstrong, and dead set against becoming a wife.
Will lashings of Scottish charm, some highly convenient privacy, a scattering of sizzling kisses, and an eventful day battling the elements to save the spring lambs combine to change Miss Warren’s mind about marriage?
They most definitely will, if this proud Scotsman has any say in the matter!

Made it to page 12, and chalked this up for a lesson learned. There is a reason why it was only $0.99. You definitely get what you pay for.
Stranded With The Scottish Earl by Anna Campbell is a totally fun read. This Regency romp is loaded with humor and sizzle. Stranded With The Scottish Earl is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for those with limited time for reading. Charlotte and Lyle's story is fast paced with amazing, lovable characters. I enjoyed Stranded With The Scottish Earl and look forward to reading more from Anna Campbell in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I won a copy of this book at a facebook party.
When Ewan MacRae, Earl of Lyle, arrives at Bassington Grange in the middle of a downpour, he finds that Charlotte Warren has been left there alone. The servants normally in attendance have left early to avoid being trapped by the floodwaters. Too late to turn back himself, Ewan has no choice but to stay alone. With Charlotte. In the two days it takes for the floodwaters to recede, will Ewan be able to win Charlotte's heart? This delightful story is full of playful banter and was a fun and sexy quick read, perfect for a rainy afternoon. I devoured it in one go and am looking forward to my next Anna Campbell read.
4.5 stars rounded to 5 I find it difficult to write reviews for novellas without spoiling the plot so I'll try to entice you without too many details. Charlotte is an only child and does not want to give up her independence. She likes living on and managing her father's country estate. Ewan, Earl of Lyle, met her father in London and agreed to meet her as her father thought they would be a good match. Ewan arrives in the middle of a storm and her servants are in the village on the other side of the swollen creek. Not proper but he's stuck. They both pretend to be other people but that doesn't last long. The rest I hope you read for yourself as I believe you'll enjoy it. Anna Campbell is a very good author and I've enjoyed everything she's written. The epilogue is perfect!
