Only ever since his ex-fiancée ran off with the gardener, Liam doesn’t believe in marriage, or miracles, for that matter, until that is, Isabella Edwards appears at his Edinburg townhome with the answers to his problems.
Local preacher’s daughter and former missionary, Isabella Edwards had the perfect life all planned out. Marry her perfect fiancé, live near her family in Holland Springs, open a bookstore, and have a couple of kids. Except her fiancé ran off to Las Vegas with his widowed ex-stepmother, the bookstore closed before it could open, and now… now, she’s pregnant after a one-weekend stand with hot Scot, Liam Stewart.
To Isabella’s utter shock, Liam proposes, but a marriage can’t last on desire alone. The problem? Isabella and Liam are total opposites.  In fact, the only time they’re in agreement is in the bedroom. Desperate to keep her reputation, she accepts.  Her only hope is that they can put aside their differences and let love bring them together.

  She turned excitedly to Liam as he returned from the bathroom and entered their private room, practically bouncing in her seat. "Is this festival for the whole town?" she asked, and then her jaw dropped. Liam wore a purple, green, blue and red kilt, with a wide belt, a pouch made of fur and leather in the middle, and a white button down shirt. His boots were polished and his socks matched the material of the tartan.
  "You're wearing a kilt," she said, stating the very obvious.
  "I'm wearing the Chief's tartan. I'm the head of my clan." He tilted his head at a cocky angle. "Most of the men attending today will be wearing something like this."
  "So, you're finally wearing a kilt for me," she said with a little clap.
  She wondered if he wore anything underneath it at all.
  He leaned forward and dipped his head. "I ken what you're thinking, lass. And it's true."
  "What's true?"
  The sexiest smile she'd ever seen curved his lips. "I'm not wearing a bloody damn thing."
  Oh. My. Gosh. He was joking. He had to be joking. "What if the wind blows your kilt up?" She licked her lips as she ran her gaze over him once more. She had a feeling she would be doing that all day.
  He shrugged and then straightened. Then he did something that never in a million years she thought she'd find sexy. Or maybe because she'd never thought she'd ever see a man doing it. Hitching up one side of his kilt, he turned around and cast a glance over his shoulder. "How do my legs look, lass?"
  His legs? She could barely tear her gaze away from his tight, muscular bare butt. "You weren't kidding," she breathed.
  "If I wore anything under it, then it would be a skirt."
  "We can't have that, can we?" She had to look away. Only she didn't want to look away. She didn't have to look away. Liam and his bare behind were hers. If she wanted to bite or smack one of his cheeks, she could and he, the lusty man, would probably order her to do it again.
  He let the material fall, and her lips drew up into a pout.
  "I wasn't done looking," she complained as he held out his hand. She took it and stood on her feet.
  "I assumed you wanted to go to the festival today," he said, and she didn't miss the gleam in his dark eyes.
  "I do."
  "Then you were done looking."
