Angus Macgregor has endured a lot in life. Mother passing when he was a small child, he also nursed an ill father to his last breath. But when he loses his one remaining relative, an uncle he’s never met, his existence is turned on its head forever. Bequeathed Clan Gregor Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Angus leaves Australia behind to take on the family business. It’s there he finds more waiting for him than he ever dreamed possible.
Daniel Ramsey is a man with secrets, none more dangerous than the fact that he can see what others can’t. When he meets one particularly handsome Australian, the attraction is immediate. Hesitant to let down his guard, his hand is forced when a former guest of the castle comes calling and attempts to stake a claim on the very man Daniel wants.
Angus slid the stable door open and stepped inside, feeling raw and vulnerable when Daniel’s eyes began to traverse his body from head to toe.
“Weel, don’t ye look every part the horseman.”
“Don’t let this get-up fool you, mate. It’s been years since I’ve ridden,” Angus confessed, scrunching his nose at the pungent odour of manure and animal that filled the dusty air.
Daniel let out a hearty laugh and wandered toward the spacious stall where two horses munched on their breakfasts of hay. One of the animals was a pretty Bay with a black mane and tail, the other a pale grey and quite a lot larger.
Growing up in the suburbs of Sydney meant there had been little opportunity for Angus to go horse riding. The only times he had done so were when he was a boy; first in Centennial Park for a childhood friend’s tenth birthday, and again at his high school summer camp on the Hawkesbury River. On both occasions his mounts had been old nags, each preferring to graze rather than gallop, but these two animals appeared far livelier.
“I’m sure ye’ll do just fine, Angus.”
His heart stuttered at the seductive sound of Daniel saying his name for the first time. The Scot’s tone of voice, which had dropped a few octaves, was so damn sexy.
