A Scandal By Any Other Name: Rules of Refinement (The Marriage Maker #8)
Notorious adventurer Grafton Archer is anything but a refined Edinburgh gentleman. As a Highlander, he prefers his swinging sporran to a starched cravat, and his only concern is his latest challenge: restoring his new home, a crumbling, rumored-to-be-haunted 17th century mansion. But everything changes when an unexpected encounter on Beltane Eve ends with a scorching kiss - and a runaway miss he can't forget.
Amelia Ripley isn't a highborn lass and her attendance at Lady Peddington's School for Young Ladies hasn't polished her. She tries, but the school's strictures only strengthen her impetuous nature - a foible that proves dangerous when a darkly handsome rogue attempts to 'save her from scandal' by kissing her so shamelessly she flees rather than accept the truth: she isn't destined for propriety, but passion.
Or is it love?
She'll never know because Beltane magic is fleeting - or is it? Unbeknownst to the kissers, they were observed by a man now famed as the Marriage Maker. And though he'd not intended his Edinburgh visit to include matchmaking, he knows when his services are needed, and he's always happy to oblige.
