Heroine: Lady Chadwick. A widow who must marry within 3 years after her husband’s death or her son loses everything. She is currently awaiting a long lost love’s arrival but a certain highlander leaves her breathless and wanting.
Hero: Cailean Mackenzie, laird of Arrandale, doesn’t want an English rose in his garden. He’s already been pricked by a similar rose’s thorns but this beauty digs in deep and refuses to let go.
This scene is after Lady Chadwick first meets Cailean Mackenzie. She rather lets her imagination run away with her.
He’d been so utterly unexpected. Daisy flushed again, thinking about the Scotsman. Oh, but she was a hopeless cause. Quite possibly even mad. She shuddered to think how foolishly beguiled she’d been, particularly in the face of what could have been terrible danger. She’d long been an admirer of healthy men but this…this border on lunacy.
And yet…she hoped she might see him again one day. Shewould very much like to make him smile, to see the light she was certain could be coaxed from those blue eyes under the right circumstances. She quivered a little, imaging how how she might.
Oh yes, she was mad-completely and utterly mad.
Her steady stream of suitors since Clive’s death were the raging storm waters that fed the river. But the Scotsman was not a suitor and she thought of him in an entirely different light. She closed her eyes and imagined being kidnapped by him, carried off on the back of his horse, tossed onto a bed in some rustic castle. She imagined his hands his rather large hands on her body. Sh eimagined resisting him at first, then succombing to his expert touch. She imagined feeling his body, hot and thick inside her, and those blue eyes boring into her as ashe found her release.
