Fire Down Below
Brash entrepreneur Roan McAuley has no problem getting naked. But being the only one in the room dropping kilt and giving plenty isn't his idea of fun--even if it's for the "Men of the Highlands" calendar and a good cause. However, getting feisty photographer Tessa Vandergriff all hot, bothered, and hungry is proving irresistible. . .even though she's not his type. And even if the sizzling attraction between them is changing everything this roguish playboy thinks he knows about lust. . .and love.
Praise for Donna Kauffman and Her Novels
"Give me more." --Linda Howard on The Charm Stone
"Whimsical and sexy." --Jennifer Crusie on Your Wish Is My Command
"Donna Kauffman writes smart and sexy, with sizzle to spare!" --Janet Evanovich
In the second of a loosely related trilogy (after June 2010's Some Like It Scot), Kauffman spins a complex tale of personal rediscovery. Roped into posing for a sexy Highlander-hunk-of-the-month calendar contest, Roan McAuley is irritated and then intrigued by photographer Tessa Vandergriff. When he learns about her award-winning wartime credentials, Roan must re-examine what he knows of this odd, prickly woman, while Tessa tries to redefine herself and her life after the shell-shock of the battlefield. Startled at first by Roan's attentions, Tessa soon becomes pleased, but her fear of loss and memories of betrayal threaten to wreck the fledgling relationship. This rather ordinary romance is elevated beyond the average by a well-earned satisfactory ending and the unflinchingly honest description of a woman's emotional journey toward love and life.
