A grandmother’s last request, a mysterious old coin, and a heartfelt wish.
Armed with a mysterious package, Angelica travels to Scotland to fulfill the requirements of her grandmother’s will. The package contains an ancient coin and a letter telling her to make one wish. Angelica’s wish for true love sends her back in time and into the arms of a man who could make all of her dreams come true – if she’ll let him.
Angelica just stood there staring at him, one thought reverberating through her mind. Why does he think its 1786? Did I just have the most amazing sex of my life with a raving lunatic?
“Angel everything will be alright, truly. We will figure it out, together. Someone must have brought you here, as soon as we find you some clothing we’ll find out whom. Come back to bed, let me warm you up.”
He held out his hand to her, his dimpled smile enticing her to accept. He may be mad. She thought with a grin. But he sure knew how to convince you he had all his faculties.
She stood there debating if she should let him talk her into this foolish endeavor, and took the opportunity to look around the room. She noted that the furniture was old and that she could find nothing that linked this place to her time, no clock, no lights or outlets. Her attention was pulled back to the bed when she sensed movement. The moment he stood up and took a step towards her she knew she didn’t stand a chance of turning him down. He was spectacular to look at in the light of day; the butterflies in her stomach started flying in circles with anxious anticipation of his first touch.
He didn’t disappoint, his hand slowly cupped her face, his palm caressing her cheek. She turned her face into his palm kissing it lightly. That was all the encouragement he needed, he took the final step that separated them and claimed her lips in a kiss that made her knees weak.
A sigh escaped her lips as he trailed kisses down her neck to her breast, when he nipped the nipple he had uncovered. The blanket she held dropped to the ground. A low growl emanated from his throat at the sight of her naked flesh, causing her to shiver with excitement.
