When Ronan MacAlister returns to Glencoe, Maine to see to the affairs of his late uncle, he's immediately reminded of why he's stayed away. The small town is definitely not his cup of tea, and he can't wait to settle the estate and be done with the cold winters. The only bright spot is the feisty farm manager, Aileen. All grown up now and far from the shy and reserved girl from his childhood, she exudes a steamy sexuality that has Ronan and his unruly body on full alert.
Aileen MacDougall had a huge crush on Ronan when she was a teenager, content to adore him from afar whenever his family came to Glencoe for a visit. Now he's back, and although the circumstances are less than ideal, she's eager to find out if her fantasies can live up to reality. But he holds the key to the future of Glencoe in his hands as well as her own hopes and dreams.
Can being trapped together in a remote cabin during a freak snowstorm melt his heart? Or will they discover they have differences even kilty pleasures can't overcome?
“My goodness but you’ve grown up.”
“Yes,” she said, “no more bright red hair and freckles.”
He shot her a grin. “I take it your father clued you in to what I’d said earlier.”
She laughed, the soft sound setting his awareness back on full alert. “Yes, that he did.”
He slid into the closest chair and took the plate from her grasp. “Thank you for this.”
“Can I get you something to drink?”
The thought of sipping champagne from every nook and cranny on her sexy body sprang instantly to mind. And just as quickly, his cock stood up in an agreeable salute. “A cold glass of water would be great.”
“What? No warm lager or strong tea? What kind of Scotsman are you, Ronan MacAlister?”
A full-blown laugh escaped him. “The citified kind, I guess. Other than wearing my family tartan on special occasions, I’m not much into Scottish traditions.”
“Well then, while you’re here, we’ll have to see what we can do about that.”
He purposely raised an eyebrow for effect. “I look forward to it.”
