Highland war heroes rebuilding their lives grapple with ladies forging their own paths--who will win? Regency Scotland comes alive in the vibrant and sexy new SCOTS OF HONOR series by USA Today bestselling author Eliza Knight. Scottish military heroes, who want nothing more than to lay low after the ravages of war in 19th century France, find their Highland homecomings vastly contradict their simple desires. Especially when they meet the feisty lasses who are tenacious enough to take them on, and show them just what they've been missing out of life. In battle they can't be beaten, but in love, they all find the ultimate surrender. When General Alec Hay, the Earl of Errol returns from war, his mother is determined to see him wed. Once known for his dark good looks, Alec now bears a scar over half his face that makes every potential bride cringe. He wants only to escape into the darkest room in his ruined castle and relive the harrowing moments in battle when he couldn't save his friend. Ignoring his demands to be left alone, his mother throws a rousing house party at her Edinburgh estate. Unable to take another setup for flirtation, he rides his horse out onto their property and becomes stuck in some ruins during a torrential downpour. Lady Giselle Hepburn, an impulsive lass, rides out from a neighboring estate in the same storm, attempting to escape her family and a forced marriage to a man with a vicious dark side. She falls off her horse and nearly tumbles over a cliff but is saved by a handsome, mysterious Highlander. With a twisted ankle, and the weather too dangerous to attempt riding, Giselle agrees to wait out the storm with the stranger. To Alec's shock, Giselle is the first woman who doesn't shy away from his scar and treats him like a man rather than a hideous barbarian. As the storm rages through the night, they each confess their meddling family's determination to see them wed----and he learns her intended is his greatest enemy. Alec insists that she accompany him back to his house to convalesce, where he presents her with a solution to both of their problems: --what if they wed each other in secret? Could a marriage of convenience free them both from their unwanted troubles, or will love be an incredibly inconvenient development?

Especially when they meet the feisty lasses who are tenacious enough to take them on, and show them just what they've been missing out of life. In battle they can't be beaten, but in love, they all find the ultimate surrender. Back from the war, Captain Euan Irvine of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, and heir to the Laird of Drum, learns of his grandfather's death...and the will stipulating whichever grandson produces an heir first will inherit his title and properties. Except that this is a race of which Euan wants no part. Marriage and heir producing is better left to the gentleman in society. He is not distinguished, and he is far from proper. Euan's a rough and tumble warrior still seething with bitterness from the horrors of war and the men he lost. Under pressure from his clan to save them from being led by his vile cousin, Euan reluctantly agrees to enter the marriage mart. Strategizing for the quickest win, Euan decides to hire a governess to help polish him for marriage, and for his new role as Laird. Miss Bronwen Holmes is desperate to disappear from her deceased parents' creditors, who have threatened to abduct her and force her into a fate worse than death. When she reads an advertisement for a governess in the Highlands, she hightails it out of Edinburgh to start a new life. Little did she know that her charge would be a grown man whose steely gaze makes her heart flutter. It doesn't take long for Euan to realize that Bronwen is the furthest thing from a governess, and a lass sorely in need of protection. As she attempts to teach him all the wrong ways of being a gentleman, his desire to protect her gives him a new hope in life, and a drive to prove he's the rightful Laird of Drum.
