She grabs at the chance when the elderly Duke of Lotheil approaches her with a proposition - he'll admit her into the Royal Society, if she helps him to establish a relation with his estranged grandson, Ewan Cameron, a very rough-around-the-edges Scotsman who hates everything English. Between shootings, explosions, and Lily's abduction, Ewan ends up falling in love with Lily in this Pygmalion-inspired story.
