He’s the terror of the ton...
The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn’t expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot…or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won’t allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians…no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn’t part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this “proper” English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves...and nothing will stop him from having her.

Poor Catherine Middlebrook is having quite the distressing time. She must find a proper husband before her family is ruined. Her spendthrift mother and family are for Catherine sacrificing herself for the better good. She has a type in mind and the tall, brooding Scotsman who is placed in her path is definitely not her type. He is too big and too much male for her.
Brooding Highlander, Alexander Waters has come to London to get his sister wed even if it has to be an Englishman. His feisty sister befriends the wily Catherine and both ladies begin to torment the man. Alex sees what Catherine is after, but he also sees that the seemingly proper and staid miss actually has quite the fire within that seems to come out whenever they are in each other's presence. Once Alex gets his head out of the clouds, he sees that Catherine is just what he needs and proving it to her is a exciting journey.
HOW TO SEDUCE A SCOT by Christy English is a truly delightful tale. It took a little bit to get going, but was full speed ahead when it really mattered. I loved how all of the characters play off one another. The give and take is great! This story has it all, intrigue, romance with a smidge of comedy. All in all a great read and I am looking forward to the next one!
