New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.
Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice, and his attraction to her, but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.
Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?
Can anyone tell me why on earth I waited so long to read A Duke by Default? What a book! Tavish is definitely one of my new favorite book boyfriends and I want to be besties with Portia. Such a sweet and sexy story.
Mitchell Tenpenny is one of my most recent musical obsessions. Drunk Me is such a fantastic song. It gives me major feels every time I hear it.
I’ve been sober ’cause there ain’t no hangover like you girl
No, no, no
Baby can you come over
I always find those words at the bottom of a hundred proof, yeah
Girl, every time you do
I just end up, head all messed up like the sheets where we made love
I’ve been sober since you broke my heart in two
‘Cause drunk me can’t get over you (There ain’t no hangover like you)
Can’t get over, can’t get over (There ain’t no hangover like you)
Oh, no, no, no

Confession: I’ve watched these two clips about 700 times each since the game Saturday night. I’m barely exaggerating here. I often say my love of Mountaineer football will kill me one day, but with endings like this it’d be no wonder if they actually did. Whew. (I tried to embed the better video from ESPN but it wouldn’t load, so tweets will have to do.)
