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. She finally realized what a shallow person he really was, he didn’t like the fact that she wore men’s clothes, didn’t obsess about her appearance and didn’t really try to impress people. 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. He had been avoiding Flora since they were both young, she was just a nuisance and not what he would consider a lady or marriage material. He discouraged her every chance he could.
After a visit with Ham’s sister Jacqueline at her home a day’s ride away, Ham offers to escort Flora, who had also been visiting her childhood friend, back to Gleann. Due to a freak storm they are trapped alone together for days. Ham learns more about Flora than he ever thought possible, and more importantly, he finds out that she is much more than she seems and he really likes her. 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.
