The Man of Her Dreams: The McCabe’s Book 3
Flora Munro had a crush on Ham McCabe for what seemed to be her whole life, until she got tired of him avoiding her all the time.

Either they liked her for who she was, or they didn’t, Flora didn’t put on airs for anyone.
Ham McCabe had just finished up his service to the king’s army and returned to Gleann where he had grown up. Just like when they were younger, Flora Munro began following him around once again.

Due to a freak storm they are trapped alone together for days.

He’s not even upset when to save her reputation he has to marry her, although Flora wants nothing to do with him. After a trip or two over his knee, he begins to try to change her opinion of him back to what it once used to be, when he was the man of her dreams. Due to some poor choices he’s made, that may not be so easy.
