On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

"Narrator Carmen Rose sets the scene for the witty banter between two headstrong protagonists. When 16-year-old Madeline Gracechurch pens love letters to Captain Logan MacKenzie, her imaginary fiancŽ, she avoids the pressure of being presented to society. Years later, when she kills Logan off, the newly widowed Madeline thinks she's free from social obligations and retires to work on her drawings--until a handsome Highlands soldier appears at the doorstep of her Scottish castle. Rose gives shy Madeline a dignified English accent and the roguishly commanding Logan, a Scots brogue. Though Rose's pacing can be rushed at times, she takes things slow when it comes to the sensual love scenes and captures the heat of this steamy Regency romance.
