A young heiress in mourning for her mother, Kimberly Richards has been abandoned by her long-time fiance. But Kimberly's father, the Earl of Amburough, is intent upon marrying her off as quickly as possible, so that he can remarry. His chosen bridegroom for his daughter is Lachlan, the dashing and newly-impoverished Laird of Clan MacGregor.
Kimberley, however, harbours a deep-seated dislike of Scots and gold-diggers, and is dubious about a tryst with the handsome, haughty Lachlan. But strange turns and outrageous circumstances promise to lead the ill-matched pair to a wildly unexpected destination - and to open a resisting heart to the true glories of love.
