She’s determined to end her betrothal, but he must make her his, no matter the cost.
As an infant, Mayra Findlay’s hand was pledged in marriage to Logan Rutherford by order of the king. She’s only seen Logan once since; when they were still young children. Over the years, she’s written him several times, asking that he petition the king to end their troth, but Logan never responds. However, after a chance encounter with an irresistible rogue she can’t stop thinking about, nor stop secretly meeting, Mayra is resolute she’ll marry for love. Though it’s risky, she initiates a bold scheme that’s certain to force Logan to call off their union.
Until Laird Logan Rutherford returned to Scotland and inherited a near bankrupt estate, he had no intention of wedding the lass he was betrothed to as a wee lad. He’d planned to honor Mayra’s ever more demanding requests to dissolve their marriage contract, but now he must have her dowry to save his beloved Lockelieth Keep. One day, he prevents Mayra from taking a nasty tumble, and he’s immediately intrigued with the intelligent lass.
Mayra doesn’t recognize Logan, and after she reveals her utter contempt for her betrothed, he impulsively assumes his cousin’s identity. A decision that soon has Logan snared in a tangled web of deceit, because he’s fallen in love with Mayra.

Logan and Mayra were betrothed when he was six and she was a baby. They saw each other only once during their betrothal, when she was twelve. Neither of them wants the marriage. Mayra has written to Logan a number of times asking him to dissolve the betrothal. Logan would like to oblige, but he can’t. Before he died his father wasted the dowry portion given with the betrothal, and without it, he can’t break the betrothal contract. When they finally meet, Logan decides that the best way to get to know Mayra and what she is like is to pretend to be his cousin Coburn. From here the plot gets a little complicated. He should have given this idea more thought.
To Love a Highland Rogue is a heartwarming and humorous Highland romance, a wonderful beginning to Collette’s new Heart of a Scot series. I love the way Mayra and Logan are portrayed. She is a sweetheart, kind and caring. Logan still has a lot of the six-year-old boy in him. The dialogue is sharp and witty. As with all of Collette’s books the story flows along, entertaining from start to finish. I look forward to the rest of the series.
