Adrian, Viscount Marquand, is not a typical English lord. Spurning the gaming halls and brothels, he secretly designs the most beautiful gardens in England. Then his ne'er-do-well father bets the ancestral manor on the outcome of a golf match, and it's up to Adrian to save his beloved home. But first he must travel to Scotland to learn the game.
Miss Derrien Edwards is not a typical Scottish lass. Her bouncy blond curls tucked under a woolen cap, she satisfies her love of the links by passing as a young male caddie named "Derry".
When Adrian arrives at St. Andrews links, he's paired with "Derry". While learning to play, Adrian struggles to ignore his strange attraction to the impudent caddie, and Derrien finds herself caught in her own trap. Secrets swirl as the day of reckoning arrives—and neither can afford to lose the game.

She was never a part of his plans ...
Drake McCalister is one of New Orleans most attractive, affluent, and infamous of men known for his “love them and leave them” ways. Conflicted by his ideals of loyalty, selflessness and love, he never relinquishes his heart to a woman. But when he crosses paths with Sierra Maudet during his business travels, and is lured into the most decadent place, a brothel, Drake’s views about women in and out of the bedroom are turned completely upside down. Now, Drake is seeing life entirely different for the first time.
Although he is soon-to-be wed to the illusive Isadora Marcos, heiress to his greatest rival’s shipping empire, he refuses to let go of the one woman who threatens to wreck his carefully laid plans.
His world of privilege may lead her to ruin ...
Life for Sierra Maudet came to a shattering end as a child with the sudden death of her mother. With a benefactor to please, and her younger brother to protect, Kyle—a magnet for women, Sierra takes to the stage swinging her hips, and singing sultry tunes with hopes of earning enough wealth to leave her small town and wanton lifestyle behind.
When the enticing outsider, Drake McCalister, unexpectedly enters into her life, promising to fulfil her adventurous spirit, Sierra surrenders to his sinful offer and returns with him to his New Orleans estate.
However, Isadora has no plans to hand over her prized stallion, and Sierra isn’t so sure that an affair with the handsome stranger won’t lead to her own heartache and despair. But her insatiable desire for Drake gets the better of her, and she decides that the temptation is worth the risk.
