Rose had taken a lover. A decision that scandalized her brothers but didn't stop their arrangement that she marry. But Rose had fallen for a devilish highlander that tormented her with his snappy wit and chiseled body. So there's only one thing left to do...
Rose must seduce the highlander into marriage.
For years she trained in the delicate art of swordsmanship. She had never known a man outside of a duel before she met James. But she'll find that strategy is just as important in dueling as it is in seduction.
The rules are the same, the weapons different, but both end in surrender.
If Rose's brothers had hoped she would cave to their demands she marry. They forgot one thing: Roses have thorns.
*** This novella is part two of the Highland Rose Trilogy ***
Eliza Phillips is a Midwestern gal who's heart belongs abroad. She writes romances that will curl your hair or make your heart sigh with whimsy. She enjoys all things historical, particularly if it wears a kilt. Her heroines are independent thinkers that don't need no man...but wouldn't mind if a man came and swept them off their feet.
When she's not writing Eliza spends her time lusting after travel destinations, recipes for bruschetta, and red heads. She keeps her sanity with a cocktail of 80's rock, Caribou Coffee, and...cocktails. Preferably with friends.
