Historical Romance

Miss Charlotte Warren was home alone, and she did not want the lone traveler to tarry. He needed to leave immediately before the only way out was flooded. She knew who the gentleman was, and she had no wish to be stranded alone with him. Unfortunately, crossing the bridge was dangerous and he quickly returned, so she did the only thing she could think of. She lied and claimed to be a maid.

Ewan Macrae, Earl of Lyle, had only one desire upon seeing the portrait of Charlotte, and that was to make her his wife. He had headed immediately to seek her, and would not allow a torrential downpour stop him. However, it was the lady herself who put his courting on hold. She was obviously no housemaid. And not just because he had seen her portrait. Her bearing and mannerism proved her lie. So he did the only thing he could at that juncture, he lied about who he was.

Thus lies and some unexpected alone time begins Stranded With the Scottish Earl. Charlotte has no intention of being drawn to Ewan. Not just because she had no desire to be married, but the man had lied about who he was. I enjoyed watching the standoff, but more so the slow cracking in Charlotte's reserve. Ewan is a man on a mission, and that mission is to make Charlotte his wife. Readers will be eager to see how quickly he wins their battle of wills, and by the end will believe in love at first sight.
