PROPERLY IMPROPER...AND DARING TO LOVE...
Juliana St. John was raised to be very proper. After a long engagement, her wedding day dawns—only for Juliana to find herself jilted at the altar.
Fleeing the mocking crowd, she stumbles upon Elliot McBride, the tall, passionate Scot who was her first love. His teasing manner gives her an idea, and she asks Elliot to save her from an uncertain future—by marrying her...
After escaping brutal imprisonment, Elliot has returned to Scotland a vastly wealthy yet tormented man. Now Juliana has her hands full restoring his half-ruined manor in the Scottish Highlands and trying to repair the broken heart of the man some call irredeemably mad. Though beautiful and spirited, Juliana wonders if that will be enough to win a second chance at love.

The guests have assembled, the minister is waiting, and Juliana St. John is ready to get married. But where is the groom? As Juliana soon discovers, Grant Barclay has eloped with his piano teacher. While trying to compose herself, Juliana runs into Elliot McBride and, in a fit of what she can only call madness, she proposes to him. Much to her surprise, Elliot accepts. Taking advantage of the arrangements already in place, Juliana and Elliot are immediately wed and promptly set off to Elliot’s newly purchased home in the Scottish Highlands. Upon arriving, Juliana discovers that it’s a run-down castle in serious need of work, but that is nothing compared to the time and effort she’ll need to restore Elliot to the man she once knew and loved. RITA Award–winning Ashley excels at creating multilayered, realistically complex characters, and the latest installment in her Mackenzie Brothers series is a richly emotional treat for fans of tortured heroes. Ashley not only handles Juliana’s romantic redemption of Elliot with significant finesse; she also delivers abundant sensual passion. --John Charles
