She was ready to let her heart run wild . . .
Merry Stewart has had enough! Enough of her brothers, whose behavior would make even the most improper lady blush. Enough of their Highland home, which would surely have fallen to ruin were it not for her.
She dreams of escaping into the arms of her betrothed, Alexander d'Aumesbery - even though they haven't yet met. But when they do, Merry is devastated. It seems he's no better than the men in her family.
So beautiful, so brazen . . . From the moment he meets Merry, Alexander is determined to make her his. Desperate to convince her he's nothing like the members of her roguish clan, he will prove he is every bit the well-mannered gentleman.
Yet, beneath it all beats a heart as intense and uncontrollable as hers. And finally, when his life is threatened, Merry realizes he's the husband she's been waiting for . . . and their passion becomes the one thing that cannot be tamed.

Publishers Weekly Sands's second book in her Medieval trilogy is a mixture of sexy romance and humor combined with an unfortunately stale story. When Merewen Stewart arrives at her betrothed's stronghold, Alexander d'Aumesbery is well into a whiskey-induced "recovery" for a sore tooth, convincing Merry that he's a drunk like her father and brothers. As their first weeks together don't prove otherwise, Marry's take-charge attitude-viewed by some as shrewish-comes on strong. As for Alex, he finds that his new wife's arrival coincides suspiciously with attempts on his life, which continue to dog him as they travel to visit his sister and her new husband. Though the road trip allows the couple to get familiar, overcome their differences, and come to love each other, the sparks that distinguish standard formula fare fail to materialize.
