Years ago, Christina Blackburn posed for a scandalous painting—and now, as a proper antiquarian for the National Museum, she hides her beauty behind an icy façade and prim spectacles. When the museum sends her to the Highlands to examine an ancient Highland treasure, she encounters the same notorious painting—and its dangerously handsome owner.
Sir Aedan MacBride knows that a local legend declares that the estate's heir must never fall in love, which suits him just fine—until he meets Christina Blackburn. Recognizing the model of the mysterious painting he owns, he realizes she is the key to saving his estate, for only she knows the secret of an ancient legend. But he never expects love to interfere with his plans.
