Grace Talbot gripped the steering wheel of her white four-wheel-drive truck. Every muscle in her body tensed as she leaned closer to the windshield, straining her eyes, searching the blowing snow for the reflector poles that lined the road, or for any tire track, which would indicate someone else had driven through recently.

She had to laugh, at least he had a sense of humour and certainly didn’t fit the worn out stereotype of a dour Scot. But he was also impressively broad of chest and dark of hair, with penetrating eyes, and just for a moment she could imagine him striding across some heather-clad hill in a kilt.

breaking into."

Laura closed her eyes in exasperation. Of course it was.

4 stars from RT Book Reviews!

She turned her piercing eyes on him and they opened wide with a shock to match his. Tense breaths raised and lowered his chest beneath her palm as he waited for her to pull away, the danger from the other men fading beneath the subtle press of her skin against his. Helena's touch had never rattled him to his boot heels like this woman's, which was igniting him like a reed set to the coals.
