He runs a hand along the side of his jaw, and . . . can I just pause for a second and appreciate the specimen in front of me?
Chiseled, sculpted, a Scottish Adonis with a handsome face and the perfect amount of scruff on his jaw, which seems to never change in length. He’s unlike any man I’ve ever seen in person but have always dreamed up. His carved V borders an extreme set of abs. His large pecs connect to boulder-like arms and large, sexy hands.
And when anger vibrates through him—like it is now—every one of his muscles fires off. It’s quite the sight to behold.
“Are you going to say something?” I ask, feeling myself shrink in his presence, beneath his intimidating stare. “Because it’s rude to invite someone in but not talk. You have company, Rowan—be a good host.”
His jaw works side to side, but remains clamped shut.
Well, this seems to have been a huge mistake.
Not in the mood for a blowup, I let out a heavy, defeated breath. I should probably leave—catch him on another day when he’s ready to be human, not a Neanderthal.
“Okay, well, this was a lovely visit. Thank you for the hospitality.”
I push past him, but he reaches out and gently takes my arm, halting me in place. We’re standing side by side—he faces one direction, and I face the other. “Coffee?” he quietly asks.
“Uh . . . sure.”
Slowly, he releases my arm, and his fingers trail over my skin like feathers, sending a shiver up my spine as he pulls away.
He strides to the kitchen, keeping his back toward me. I watch him prepare a simple pot of coffee and then pull two mugs from the hooks. While the coffee brews, he opens a cabinet that’s next to the fridge and pulls out a Tupperware container full of . . . oh dear God.
Things are about to get embarrassing.
“Is that, uh . . . cake you’ve got over there?”
He doesn’t answer.
“Because if so, you know I would love a piece, big guy.”
He pulls two beautifully made plates off a shelf, the same style as the mugs. Then he cuts two pieces of cake, puts them on the plates with forks, and brings them to the coffee table, just as the coffee maker beeps. He fills each mug.
“Cream or sugar?”
“Both,” I answer, standing awkwardly in the middle of his cottage, unsure of what to do with my hands—or my body, for that matter. Do I sit down? Do I wait for him? Do I snag the cake and sprint out the door?
Option three is looking pretty promising—that is, until he turns around with two mugs and I catch sight of him once more.
Yeah, there’s no way I would be able to leave at this point. I’m dedicated to watching his pecs flex tonight.
In this steamy tale by USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn, an American searching for her purpose escapes to a Scottish town but finds more questions than answers when she meets a brooding yet handsome handyman.
Freshly fired from her third job in a row, Bonnie St. James has lost her way. So when she and her best friend stumble upon a “help wanted” post to run a coffee shop in the Scottish Highlands, they apply on a whim. Who knows? Maybe traveling to a new place is just what she needs to figure out her next move.
When the friends arrive in the tiny idyllic town of Corsekelly, they instantly fall for the gorgeous Highland landscape and friendly townspeople. But Bonnie finds a less-than-warm welcome in Rowan MacGregor, the rugged local handyman. Busy wrestling his own demons, Rowan’s in no mood to deal with the quirky American—even if she is a bonny lass.
As Bonnie and Rowan’s paths inevitably cross, insults—and sparks—fly. Can the pair build on their similarities to help each other find purpose and direction…and maybe romance too? Or will their passionate tempers fling them apart?
