Caught by the ScotBook - 2017
Dashing Scottish privateer Conner Douglas must marry a respectable, well-born woman; and soon, if he wants to secure his rightful inheritance. Determined to still explore the high seas as well as his mistresses' beds, he aims to find a pliable wife who'll turn a blind eye to his antics. And he knows just the woman, childhood friend and mousy spinster Miss Theodora Cumberbatch-Snowe. Unbeknownst to Conner, meek and plain Theodora has been hopelessly in love with him for years. But unwilling to wait forever for what will never happen, Theodora plans to wed a kind, if unexciting, local landowner, leaving behind the wild Highlander of her dreams. Yet Conner refuses to let his perfect wife get away. He chases her to Gretna Green and is shocked to discover the real Theodora is an ardent and wildly sensual woman. Soon he realizes his passion to win her has nothing to do with securing his inheritance and everything to do with earning the love of the unforgettable woman.
