Taran Ferguson, laird of his clan, is determined that his ancient (if not so honorable) birthright be secured before he dies. When both his nephews refuse to wed, the old reprobate takes matters into his own hands - he raids a ball and makes off with four likely brides. Miss Marilla Chisholm - the bonniest lass in Scotland, and an heiress to boot. Miss Fiona Chisholm - her older sister, another fine choice (but for that tiny stain on her reputation). Lady Cecily Tarleton - true, she's an English beauty, but very, very rich. Miss Catriona Burns - without name or fortune, clearly someone made a mistake. And one very irate duke. Because somewhere there must be one lady most willing to love a Scottish lord.
