Last summer in the Scottish village of Gandiegow, Hugh McGillivray caught Sophie Munro’s eye, but the dashing Laird behaved badly, acting as if the fun-loving Sophie didn’t exist. Now in the dead of winter, she is set to spend a week at his home, Kilheath Castle, housesitting and learning the art of kiltmaking, completely assured the Laird is out. When he shows up unexpectedly, embarrassment has Sophie wanting to flee back to her own village. She’s not certain how she’s going to unravel herself from this mess—being in his home, in his bed, and he knows nothing of the arrangement that brought her to his castle.
Hugh allows Sophie to stay…for now. He’s impressed that, from the start, she’s become indispensable at his wool mill as the kiltmaker’s apprentice, and in his home, helping him to unconventionally heal from his sister’s death.
Will the Laird let Sophie leave without telling her how much she’s come to mean to him? Or will he take a risk and ask her to tie the knot when her time at Kilheath Castle is up?
