A feud so old that no one remembers the cause, threatens everything that Fiona MacLean holds dear. When her brothers will not listen to reason, she must take matters into her own hands. The solution is simple – if she marries a Kincaid, her brothers will not be able to murder their new kinsmen.

Black Jack Kincaid is the role model for a rogue. Wenching, gaming and drinking are a way of life for the stubborn Scot, ever since he rode away from his family and home. A man of his sensibilities appreciates London with all of its charm and variety. With no desire to face an irate husband at swordpoint, Jack heads back to the city, hoping to be in time for the next card party. He is shocked when the fair weather suddenly turns foul, and the scent of lilacs brings Fiona MacLean to mind. It is the last coherent thought he has for some time.

Fiona is desperate to end the feud and has no qualms about leading an unconscious man to the altar. Her appeals to the vicar fall on deaf ears until she plays every woman’s trump card. Jack wakes up married to a spitfire whose temper can set off a thunderstorm.

Karen Hawkins’ newest novel offers readers plenty of romance, humor and a touch of intrigue. Watching Fiona and Jack fight their attraction is highly entertaining. Fiona has definite opinions about how his household should be run, and how their marriage should be conducted. Jack has his own thoughts on both subjects, and the sparks fly when they don’t agree. How to Abduct a Highland Lord is worth every penny.
