Rocque Oliphant has simple wants: a fine sword at his hip, a good meal in his belly, and a lusty wench by his side. His position as the Oliphant Commander, leader of men, ensures the first, and his long-term affair with Merewyn, the clan healer, ensures the second and third. She brings him joy—and pleasure—in ways he used to only dream of!
Aye, things are going well in his life…right up until his father—the laird—demands he marry and start producing grandsons. If he wants to beat his brothers at a chance for the lairdship, he needs to find a willing woman to bear his sons—and fast!
But Merewyn, stubborn lass, refuses to marry him, and won’t tell him why. Even worse, Rocque can’t imagine spending his life with anyone else! If he can’t marry another lass, and the one he wants won’t marry him, does he have a chance of becoming his father’s heir?
As the Oliphant healer, Merewyn knows she’s valuable. She knows she doesn’t need to marry…except for love. And Rocque, stubborn idiot that he is, won’t tell her his true feelings. Can she be blamed for saying nay to his proposal? But now she’s running out of time, and has to either tell him the truth or cut him free, because in a few months, everyone in the clan will know her secret!
Rocque might have more brawn than brains, but he knows no lass will hold his affections the way Merewyn does. But is he prepared for the battle it’ll take to prove that? Warning: contains sex. Lots of it. Ridiculous amounts. Also: characters and conversations which are funny enough to make you spit out your tea. For the sake of your Kindle, do not drink liquids while reading this book. That is all; carry on.
