Brought up in poverty in the slums of Edinburgh's Old Town, nineteen-year-old Catriona Dunbar is shocked to discover, on her mother's death, that she is heiress to a handsome fortune. But there is a catch - the inheritance will be hers only if she agrees to become the ward of Sir Duncan Buccleuch, the notoriously loose-living Laird of Lochlannan Castle.
Catriona's mother had always blamed the Buccleuch family - Sir Duncan's late father in particular - for her sister's death. Now, under pressure from her impoverished fiance, Catriona reluctantly journeys into the heart of the Highlands to make her home in the Laird's 15th century keep.
There, she finds that Sir Duncan intends to take his responsibilities as her guardian seriously. But Catriona is determined to discover the truth about her aunt's untimely death.
Cast out by her family when she loses her innocence, Charlotte Merrow is forced to accept a position as a governess in an isolated house on the edge of Dartmoor. She is resigned to a lonely life, until she meets her new employer.
Simon, Lord Herleston, leads a life burdened with all the responsibilities of his position. But everything changes the moment he looks into Charlotte's beautiful eyes. His new governess captivates him. Simon wants her over his knee, and in his bed. Pity she won't consent to become his mistress.
Charlotte struggles not to submit to Simon's lures. If only he wasn't so handsome and so commanding. If only her body didn't call her to sin. For Simon is determined to have Charlotte - and he'll do anything to make that happen.
But when shadows from his past threaten everything he loves, Simon must fight to protect his family's future, even if it means giving Charlotte up - forever.
