Image of Some Like It Wicked (Kincaid Highlands)

As Medeiros' compelling and
formidable characters move through
the classic and simplistic plotline of
adolescent infatuation and adult
love, you'll be captivated by their growth and that marvelous sense
of humor so much so that the slower pace and light story won't weaken your pleasure.

When Catriona Kincaid first spies rakish Sir Simon Wescott, he's seducing her cousin, but to her he's nothing less then a hero. Years later, when Catriona is determined to return to Scotland and restore her clan's honor, she chooses Simon to escort her home. But first she must get him out of debtor's prison and convince him to marry her.

Simon hasn't forgotten the girl that Catriona was, and the woman she is is too intriguing to resist, but he will be no one's hero since he believes he's nothing more than a cowardly rogue. Though Catriona marries the man of her dreams, she fears the passion that has grown between them will consume her. The road to the Highlands is dangerous, but the journey to love is far more perilous as Simon learns what he's made of and Catriona uncovers the truth about her clan and secrets of the past.
