I’m usually one who reads a book for the Hero. Yes. Guilty. Of course, the Heroine has to be good and of that, but the Hero makes me pick up a book. Then there are the exceptions. Like this story. I suspect I’d love the Heroine here.
The book is Rescued by the Scot by Laura A. Barnes, a Historical Romance.

“Do you need help Skye?” his dark voice invaded her thoughts.
She sat up in the tub, causing water to rush out, splashing on the floor in waves. Then she swiftly slipped under the water until only her face was emerged. She grabbed the towel from the stool and covered her body with it. The rotten luck with that was she realized it was the only thing to cover herself with when she planned to exit the bath. And exit she must, to clothe herself against him.
“How did you get in here?” she demanded.
“Now Skye, I can get in anywhere I want. That is a warning to you, you won’t keep me from anywhere I want to go,” he explained as he emphasized her god given name.
He sounded so proud of himself that he learned her name. She wondered which one squealed first, Agatha or Isobel. Traitors the whole lot; she would handle them later. Why was everybody in her clan trying to play matchmaker with this man? Did they not see what he was? A scoundrel of the highest order. He oozed his charm, obviously on the women of her clan. Well he wouldn’t charm any information out of her.
“Leave this room right this instant. Have you no shame? You sir are no gentleman.”
“I never said I was.”
“Temptress,” he whispered to himself. But not quietly enough, for she overheard the words which passed through his lips.
