Juliette Pemberton has accepted her arranged marriage to the infamous Black Scot.  She didn’t think the bad rumors could be true about the man.  After meeting a black-haired devil who unlocked feelings Juliette never knew existed, she becomes torn between duty and desire.

Stephen Gordon’s life hasn’t been an easy one, and it’s left him distrustful of women.  When he arrives to claim Juliette, Stephen tries very hard not to fall victim to her charms.  She drives him crazy, in more ways than one.  Because he’s been withholding information about The Black Scot, Stephen hurts Juliette.  

The simple budding relationship between Stephen and Juliette was made unnecessarily complicated by Stephen.  I understood his reasons for keeping his mouth closed, but after a point he should have come clean.  The only reason I didn’t lose respect for him was because he did at least try to reveal all to Juliette before he slept with her.  I have to give him credit for that.  I love a man of honor. 

The Black Scot has some unexpected humor centered around Juliette’s constant talking.  I laughed out loud many times.  If you enjoy verbal sparring as foreplay as much as I do, this story is a must read.
