"If it were up to Temperance O'Neil, she would never leave New York. A passionate women's rights activist, she is devoted to keeping single mothers safe on the city's rough streets - a critical need in the harsh year of 1909. But Temperance's independence is threatened when her old-fashioned Scottish stepfather, Angus, demands that she move into his Edinburgh household or lose her inheritance. At first, she complies with his wishes, but soon drives Angus into a bargain: if she can find a suitable wife for his nephew, James McCairn, a rugged farmer fiercely determined not to marry, Angus will restore her funds and send her home to New York. Little does Temperance know the challenge she'll face, for McCairn is as free spirited as she is, and the cost of finding him a mate may be denying the longings of her own heart."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
