About the book…
Lord George Gordon has much at risk and more to hide. He shouldn’t have been so cavalier, riding into battle with his cousin. But hindsight has a way of making men wise. When a musket ball lodges in his thigh, he has no choice but to trust the healer who finds him.
Akira Ayres isn’t so certain about the mysterious wounded Highlander. Though he’s a Jacobite, she cannot let him die. When they’re hunted by a murderous captain, the pair must flee. But Akira isn’t about to race away with the brutish Highlander barking orders. She has three sisters who depend on her income for food and shelter.
Bleeding and weak, His Grace needs her more. When he promises her payment, Akira agrees to help him home. Aye, the Duke of Gordon may be a rake, but he could very well lose his hardened heart to a Gypsy rose.
