Talkin’ The Talk
A Scottish millionaire hiding a dark past. A chatty Texan looking for love. Sparks fly when southern hospitality goes awry…
Ian Buchanan has spent a lifetime distancing himself from a brutal childhood, forced to fight in bare-knuckle boxing matches on freezing Scottish Highland moors… He has since gained money, prestige and the respect of his peers, but now all that’s at risk. He’s been framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he’s seeking haven in a charming cabin in Texas Hill Country while he devises a plan to clear his name. But what Ian hasn’t counted on is his curvy, chatty Texan hostess, Sophie Grey, a woman who soon has him thinking there may be more pleasurable ways to spend his time in exile.
Sophie Grey loves her job managing holiday cabins on Lonely Creek Ranch. Not only does it give her an opportunity to get to know the father she was taken away from as a child, it’s the perfect occupation for a nervous chatterer. Normally people enjoy her bubbly personality, but Ian Buchanan is unlike anyone she’s ever met. He’s big, he’s brooding and he reminds her of a hero from a Jane Austin novel. Before she knows it, she’s offering to show him the sights, and after a rocky start, Ian accepts.
But soon complications from Ian’s life have become too urgent to ignore, and a risqué encounter between them leads to a crisis that not only threatens Sophie’s business but the life she’s so carefully built at Lonely Creek Ranch. Can Ian and Sophie weather the storm to start a relationship as big as Texas itself, or will the secrets they’re keeping from each other tear them apart?
