"The Men of Roxbury House series" wraps with Patrick O'Rourke. Rourke and Kate's rocky road to romance. A marriage based on blackmail takes a surprising turn in this refreshing retelling of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew."
Former Roxbury House orphan, Patrick O'Rourke is a rough and ready Scotsman as well as a successful self-made businessman. Lady Katherine Lindsey--Kate--is a beautiful English spinster, a gentlewoman. When she finds herself blackmailed into accepting a marriage of convenience with the handsome Scot, she lets Rourke see another side of her. Following a hasty wedding, Rourke sweeps a seething Kate from the elegant and refined drawing rooms of west London to his crumbling castle in the Scottish Highlands. The only guide he has to wooing and bedding the stubborn spitfire he's taken to wife is a copy of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew." But as passion sparks between them, Rourke finds he may well be in danger of being tamed.
