New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and - most importantly - herself.
An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she's capable of.
Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss - when she's not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.
Tavish McKenzie doesn't need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armoury - even if she is infuriatingly good at it.
Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice - and his attraction to her - but when Portia accidentally discovers that he's the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.
