Catriona Kincaid is a Highland girl who has been living with her uncle in England for the ten years since the death of her parents. She has vowed to return to Scotland and restore Clan Kincaid's honor but knows she can't do it on her own. She believes that Sir Simon Westcott, a notorious rogue and naval hero, might be able to help her. She persuades him to marry her and take her on a honeymoon to Scotland, telling him that she will then give him half her dowry and they can get an annulment.

Unfortunately for Catriona, Simon isn't as malleable as she hoped, and events don't go according to plan, especially when she finds that the remaining Kincaid clan members in Scotland aren't exactly what she was hoping for. Can she and Simon make some kind of future together? Can they restore Clan Kincaid's honor?

The characters' actions in this slightly odd book are often rather difficult to understand. The central romance wasn't particularly romantic, and it's hard to evaluate what the hero and heroine feel for each other. The hero is more of an anti-hero most of the time, with the heroine being incredibly nave and silly at the same time. The plotting isn't particularly deep; many events are frankly too unbelievable to swallow, with little actual reflection of behavior in this period of history. However, the story has its moments of freshness, and it's a reasonable read overall, if disappointing due to the characterization.
