Description

From the bestselling author of Fix You, comes the story of an unexpected inheritance, a Scottish castle and the family secrets that surround it.

A successful lawyer, and the eldest of four sisters, Lucy Shakespeare is used to being in control of everything and everyone around her, most particularly herself - until she meets the gorgeous businessman Lachlan MacLeish.

Lachlan's used to getting the best, so when he needs a lawyer, Lucy is the one he hires. His inheritance is suddenly in doubt, thanks to his furious half-brother and there's no way he's going down without a fight. The very last thing he wants is a distraction, but as soon as he sees Lucy, he knows he's in trouble.

Despite their efforts to resist, it isn't long before Lachlan has Lucy longing to break all her careful rules. As they travel from Scotland, to Paris and on to New York, Lucy can't help but wonder: is it sometimes worth risking it all?
