A Beltane Betrothal

(The fifth book in the Seasons of Scotland series)
A novel by

Englishman Jocelin Matheson enrolled at Oxford to get his degree in law and represent the underprivileged in civil courts, not to turn traitor to his own kingdom and live in hiding. Unfortunately, his life isn’t the only thing now hanging in the balance. Between corrupt courtesans and bloodthirsty barons, Jocelin struggles to see anything good left to defend as he climbs the ranks of the court at the behest of his father. When he finds himself on the wrong side of a civil war, Jocelin seeks refuge with his sister’s family in the Highlands.

Ambitious Scottish noblewoman Kenna dreams of joining the court in England. Her plans flounder when she learns that her family’s financial troubles run far deeper than she had realized. Upon arriving at King David’s court in Perth to celebrate Beltane, Kenna learns that her parents brought her for the purpose of arranging her betrothal–a fact that threatens to derail all her carefully laid plans of escape. Her only consolation is that she is permitted to choose the man herself.

Not long after Jocelin arrives in Perth, he realizes that someone in the keep is there to ferret out the traitor from the English civil war. Faced with the possibility of discovery, Jocelin does what everyone—himself included—least expects: he poses as one of the many suitors vying for the hand of Lady Kenna.

A grumpy Englishman accidentally falls for the cheerful Scottish woman hunting him in this spicy medieval romance.

Can be read as a standalone or as part of the Seasons of Scotland series. Tropes include grumpy/sunshine, medieval-style billionaire romance, and opposites attract.
