Aleck McLaughlin has three major reasons to keep his hands off Delonna. One, he's her boss. Two, she's ten years younger. Three, he's sworn to never again leave his heart vulnerable. But then her ex boyfriend steals her money and skips town, leaving her with his gambling debt and a loan shark determined to collect. Aleck’s protective instincts kick in and he realizes he’ll do anything to keep Delona safe, even if that means moving her into his house and whisking her away to his ancestral home in Scotland.
Delonna’s parents’ spendthrift ways taught her to work hard for her financial independence. She loves being a bartender on Whidbey Island and hopes to open her own pub one day. When her boss–her very hot and sexy boss–steps in to save her from themess and danger her ex left behind, Delonna says no. She’s as used to calling her own shots as she is pouring them…Too bad Aleck doesn’t take no for an answer when Delonna’s safety’s involved.
But just as Delonna starts to say yes, they both find themselves in trouble that has nothing to do with a skipped debt.
