For Lady Alice Montague love is a prickly business, especially when she’s in love with her brother’s best friend, Calum, and he doesn’t even know she exists. It’s the age old problem of being a wallflower. No one ever notices a wallflower. That is, until she mistakenly creates the biggest scandal of the season, and ends up betrothed to the one man she thought she could never have.
For Calum Arden, the Marquess of Skye, and heir to the Galloway Dukedom, love isn’t on his horizon. He has a world to travel and conquer before he is yoked to his future title and duty. So, imagine his horror when his best friend’s little sister traps him in a web of lies that is about to ruin his reputation. If she thinks a wallflower can bring him to heal, she has another think coming… Forced to offer for her, he vows to get his revenge. Yet, revenge is supposed to taste sweet, but to his consternation, her kisses taste sweeter.
