From the Publisher:
What was to be a grand adventure for Melissa MacGregor -- an escape from the wilds of her Scottish home into the whirl of the London social scene -- seems to pale before the promise in the passionate gaze of Lincoln Ross Burnett. Though they exchange but a few words before parting after a chance encounter on her grandfather's lands, Melissa instantly knows this bold stranger is her destiny, while Lincoln realizes his heart has been claimed forever and he will never be complete until Melissa MacGregor is his bride.
But there are serious obstacles impeding the well-smitten Viscount Cambury's pursuit of glorious romance: sixteen of them -- all big and brawny, six named Ian and all namedMacFearson. The bane ofLincoln's youth, Melissa's stifling, disapproving uncles are now determined to rob him of his newfound happiness. Yet he is equally resolved to confront the peril -- and to pursue his exquisite obsession all the way to London. . . and to the ends of the earth, if necessary.
In this lighthearted historical romance Melissa and Lincoln have fallen in love. All should be well but there is one problem: Melissa's 16 overprotective uncles remember Lincoln's rather wild childhood and hence don't approve of the match. But times have changed and even as the uncles set out to destroy his relationship with Melissa, Lincoln works to prove himself a man worthy of her love--and of her uncle's respect. Will Melissa and Lincoln be able to prove to her uncles that their love is true?
