As a cyber war threatens cosplayer, geek, app designer, and cyber security expert Austin MacDougall's career, his chances of winning Dr. Blair Edwards' heart just got a whole lot slimmer. His nemesis has stepped up his plot to ruin Austin and take him out of the spotlight as the charming, cosplay version of Jamie, the Highlander TV heartthrob.
Half American, half English physician Blair Edwards has problems of her own. Her English ex-boyfriend wants her back and will stop at nothing to reclaim her heart and separate her from Austin.
When things get tough, what does every good Highlander do? Take his English lass to a good old-fashioned Scottish gathering in the suburbs of Seattle, of course. But this gathering presents another set of problems…
Find out why readers love Gina Robinson’s good guy heroes, the strong women they fall for, and their funny, witty, romantic stories.
The Jet City Kilt Series
These two books must be read in order:
I put my hand on his arm. "I'm serious, Austin. You gave me an opening the day we met, a shot at something between us. I shut you down then, afraid it was too soon.
"When our eyes met at the party, I realized my mistake. Maybe I didn't have all the time left I thought I did. Maybe I didn't have any at all. And if that were the case, what would I regret?" My pulse raced almost as frantically as it had at the party. "When I looked in your eyes, I was almost knocked off my feet with the connection between us. I can't explain it. But there's something between us."
He didn't say anything for a moment, just stared into his glass, head down, ignoring his phone. I couldn't read his face or his thoughts. I supposed I deserved that. It's amazing the scenarios the mind can run through in the breadth of seconds. I braced myself for rejection. Well, it was my turn, wasn't it?
Finally, he finished his drink, set it next to him, and leaned forward with his elbows on his thighs. He looked over at me. "You felt it, too? I thought you did." He grinned, sweetly tentative. "What are you thinking?"
I put my hand on his knee. "I think we deserve to explore it."
"I thought that's what we're doing." His voice was soft with emotion. "I thought that's the game we were playing."
I felt convicted. I hadn't meant to lead him on. Had he seen through me? Had he realized before I did that on the surface we were pretending for the public, but beneath it, the relationship was real.
"I don't want to play games, anymore." I held his gaze.
"So you're saying?"
"We make this real." I felt the urgency to get the words out before I lost my nerve. "That we do more than pretend. We date for real. And…see what happens." My mouth went dry. I wished I hadn't polished off my drink so cavalierly.
