"Ranulf MacLawry, Marquis of Glengask, travels to London to retrieve his sister, Rowena, who has fled from their Highland home to have a Season in London like a proper lady. Ranulf is unprepared for the admonitions of Rowena's friend Lady Charlotte Hanover, who scolds him for bullying his sister and convinces him to let Rowena stay for two weeks of the best London has to offer. Ranulf reluctantly begins to admire Charlotte's forthright behavior; 'the English kitten' is the only woman who has ever truly stood up to 'the great Scottish bear.' He's less willing to admit that using reason instead of violence might be of real value to him and his clan, as the very suggesttion smacks of English foppery."--Publishers Weekly. Scotsman Ranulf MacLawry descends on the ballrooms of London in order to rescue his sister from a society he holds in contempt, only to fall for sharp-tongued Lady Charlotte Hanover, who believes that she prefers docile men.
