When Veronica MacLeod gets herself into trouble, an unlikely hero comes to her rescue. Montgomery Fairfax was seeking information about the supposed magic mirror he has acquired, but then Veronica’s virtue is compromised and he ends up with a bride instead. Montgomery is haunted by his past. He doesn’t have any room in his heart for his wife. Veronica is determined to heal her husband body, mind, and soul.
A Borrowed Scot is an enchanting story about the power of love. Montgomery carries the pain of his past on his shoulders. His guilt and grief debilitate him. The pleasure he finds in Veronica’s arms soothes his tortured soul, but he struggles to accept her in his life in every aspect except his bed. Veronica is an amazing woman. She’s gifted, intelligent, kind, and compassionate. She has been scorned by those she should be able to trust, and as a result, she underestimates herself. Aside from Montgomery and Veronica’s individual stubbornness, the jealousy and greed of those around them cause trouble at every turn. Home is where the heart is and Montgomery’s is with Veronica. A Borrowed Scot is a love story with depth and sizzling passion. It’s provocative, sensual, and incredibly romantic.
