Lessons in Loving a Laird by Michelle Marcos

Thrust into indentured servitude as a child, Shona Slayter is counting the days until her twenty-first birthday, when she gains her precious freedom.  Unfortunately, the new laird of the estate has other plans—and he’s determined to keep her bound to him.  The only way for Shona to be free of her bonds is to marry the man who holds the key.  But seducing a handsome laird is not what she was trained for, and the more she tries to win his heart, the more she loses hers. 

With a young son to raise and a crumbling Scottish estate to manage, Conall has enough to worry about without the brazen, beautiful Shona challenging him at every turn. But their heated spats are starting to turn into real sparks…and soon the Scottish hills are ablaze with their forbidden attraction. Yet no matter what Shona is willing to do to buy her freedom, Conall has no intention of letting her go…
