A Whisky Virgin
He opened the bottle and poured us both a measure of whisky. His fingers nudged mine when he handed me a glass and a charge arced through me.
I cleared my throat. “Is there a certain way to drink it?”
“For a whisky virgin, I don’t recommend guzzling it like you did last night.”
“Good advice.” I rolled the glass between my hands, admiring the rich, caramel tones revealed by the sunlight glimmering through the whisky. I raised the glass to sniff it. Oh my lord. Smoky, sweet, with a hint of earthiness. I shut my eyes and inhaled a longer draft.
“Can you smell the sea and mountains?”
“Yes.” I drew out the word, lost in the aromas. “Mmm, that and so much more.”
“Have a sip.”
I tipped the glass, letting the whisky slide past my lips. A splash of flavors spilled over my tongue. Fruity, toasted, spicy, with a touch of honey. I let the whisky slide down in a languid swallow. A burst of pepper startled my eyes open, but then the spice melted into a warm, sweet finish. I moaned, my eyes drifting half shut.
“You like it then?” Lachlan’s voice had gone hoarse.
I parted my lids to drink him in too—the hooded eyes, the stormy heat in his pale irises, and the way his tongue skirted the edge of his upper lip. “I enjoyed it, yes.”
His fingers delved between mine, stroking my palm while his thumb rubbed the heel of my hand. “I like the way you enjoy whisky. Makes me imagine that same look on your face when I take your body.”
Dangerous in a Kilt
award-winning, bestselling romance
A feisty American. A hot Scot. Passion ignites.
Good-girl Erica Teague is out on bail, charged with a crime her ex-lover committed. A lifetime of sticking to the rules has left her broke, burned, and facing a trial and certain conviction, thanks to the evidence planted by her trust-funder ex. Desperate to experience one wild night of sizzling sex before her freedom is torn away from her, Erica heads to a notorious night club in search of a one-night stand — where a case of mistaken identity lands her in the arms of a hot Scot with a secret past.
The passion igniting between them is explosive, but Lachlan MacTaggart wants nothing to do with relationships or commitment. When he offers Erica one month of sex and companionship with no strings, she can’t resist succumbing to her electric lust for the Scotsman. Soon, though, Erica’s ex begins harassing her and Lachlan’s haunted past catches up with him. When their hot fling gets personal, the last thing either of them wanted may become the one thing that frees their imprisoned hearts.
