He’s a wolf in a kilt. That pretty much says it all…

Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do whatever it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.

Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.

Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They’ll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.

She was distracted enough with her thoughts that she was all the way into the smoking room before she froze, pivoting slowly at the eerie sensation between her shoulder blades. That feeling she was being watched was back in full force. If she’d discovered Alastair perched on the top of a bookcase, she wouldn’t have been surprised.

Creeped out, but not surprised.

Only there was no Highland Tiger. And no Damon, although she expected he’d show up eventually. Addie did a single loop through the room, sniffing to find a hint of something that would justify her discomfort. But while she scented the boys, Damon and herself, all of the scents were older and mingled together.

Clearly her lack of sleep was causing paranoia.

She turned back to face the door, standing at the edge of the fireplace as she prepared to start work for the day.

The faintest of creaks sounded. She reached down without looking, picked up the wrought-iron poker from beside the fireplace, and spun with full force toward the intruder suddenly standing behind her.

A flash of blond hair was all she saw before her assailant ducked, the poker continuing on to strike the heavy bricks of the fireplace. The sharpened side point dug in, capturing her weapon and rendering it useless.


She kept twirling, letting go of the poker but clenching her fists together until she made contact with a solid male jaw. And then she was falling, with a stranger’s hands gripping her wrists, her body twisting as he took her down with him.

A moment later they hit the ground with her on top, impact knocking a grunt from them both. Addie found herself rolled to the carpet, her hands pinned to the floor by an ironclad grasp. A much heavier body over hers made it impossible to move.

“—Addie. It’s me, Damon.”

It had only been seconds. She gazed up into sky-blue eyes, and suddenly her rapid heartbeat wasn’t from the adrenaline rush, or fear. His gaze dropped to her lips, and she found herself holding her breath. Waiting. Wanting.

His eyes shimmered, a hint of his wolf’s silver colouring visible before vanishing completely, but as confusing as that was, she was more focused on the connection between them. On the heavy weight of his hips, on his muscular thighs pushing between hers. On the thickening length of his erection pressing against her belly.

She expected to be bombarded with an emotional overload from him, but the only thing attacking her system was sheer outright lust. And given the strange circumstances, she wasn’t about to look the gift wolf in the mouth.

Damon swore softly then met her halfway as they both dove into a kiss…
