Serena Marsh is a typical Regency romance heroine: smart, sassy, and well-educated. Her society column, the "Rage Page," is a mainstay of the Town Crier. But when her father sweeps her off to mid-rebellion Scotland, what's she going to find to write about? Luckily for Serena, she meets a renegade Scotsman, Malcolm Slayter, whose dark past haunts him and makes him an outcast in a land where clan means everything. Plenty of snappy banter, steamy sex, and a wealth of historical detail, such as an Invergarry country fair where Malcolm can show off his caber-tossing skills as well as his shapely kilt-clad legs, make this a nice bridge between Regency and Highland historicals.
