On leave from his Highland regiment, Captain Liam Lockhart comes to London on an urgent mission: to repossess the stolen family heirloom that could save his ancestral estate. He never dreamed it would involve surrendering his heart. But the beautiful and scandalous socialite Ellen Farnsworth sets his Highland blood aflame with a will as strong and reckless as his own. Though bound to Liam by a soul-searing passion, duty impels Ellen to commit a terrible betrayal. Now, driven by passion, pride, and vengeance that know no bounds, this fearsome Highlander will reclaim not only his family's ancient treasure, but the one daring woman he was meant to love for all time.

Narration may have affected the story
I did like the storyline and the complex relationship, but found myself wondering whether I should be reacting differently than I was to the dialogue. The scenes that I think were intended to be funny came across flat. The narrator seems to have two gears - intense and news reporter. I think she would make a great kids novel narrator with her tone of voice, but doesn't convey sexy, brutish Scot to me. And the end scene seemed sort of ridiculous which saddened me as there was such a build up to their reuniting. I am curious enough to get the other books in the series, because I have been impressed by the author's other series.
