Summary

The Lockhart brothers' quest for an ancient family heirloom has proved fruitless...and an unpaid loan has left them indebted to their rival, Payton Douglas. With no recourse, the Lockharts offer Payton their most valuable commodity: their sister Mared's hand in marriage. Raised to despise the Douglas name, Mared outwardly agrees to the marital bargain for the sake of her family; secretly, she concocts a plan to ensure Payton will not wish to marry her. Seeing the handsome, virile laird Payton face-to-face, however, threatens a centuries-long enmity - and awakens Mared's deepest desires. But she will not be swayed. Choosing to repay her family's debt by working as his housekeeper instead of wedding him, she finds herself inexorably drawn to the man she vowed to resist. Then a profound discovery changes everything....
Now, no longer bound by a promise to her family, Mared must let her heart decide if the laird Payton is the enemy of past legend - or if he holds the key to a future filled with a passion beyond her wildest dreams.

Very good

Loved the stubbornness of the woman and the fortitude of Peyton. I laughed so much at the things she does to get even with him all the while never realizing how in love she was. Surprises twists and turns make this book interesting and so enjoyable. I love the way you are taken along the ride.

it is to late

This book was good not great. It was a struggle to finish because the main 2 characters when around around in a circle the woman obviously had feelings for the man but because of her stupid curse she couldn't partake of her feelings for the main hero their main hero loved the main heroine. Even though she rejected him 3 times ran away from him at every turn and pretty much disrespected him most of the book. I understand opposite's attract but this Is it opposit the track the book was too long for the premise of the story
