Excerpt
Read an excerpt at Pride Publishing.
Duncan McLeish owns a ranch. Unlike most ranches, this one is in the Scottish Highlands. Having inherited a failing farm from his grandfather, he turns it into a successful business. He has friends and he loves his home, but he’s lonely, and not even infrequent trips to Glasgow and Edinburgh slake that thirst to find someone. Then Drew Sinclair walks into his life.
Drew Sinclair is tantalizingly close to getting his clothing brand noticed in the industry. He and his business partner, Joy, create individual dresses, while, on the side, Drew produces a line of men’s lingerie. He visits Scotland to design a bridal gown for his sister, Jenna, who is marrying Duncan’s best friend at Christmas.

Duncan and Drew have nothing except their Highland upbringing in common, but they say opposites attract, and the attraction is immediate. Is this simply a summer fling, or can two men who live such opposite lives miles away from each other find a way to love?

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to homophobia and references to death of a character’s parents.

When Fashion Meets Frontier

My Highland Cowboy is an interesting twist on the usually-American-set ranch story.  Taking place in the Scottish Highlands, the ranch is owned by Duncan, who has turned it into a dude ranch.  A successful ranch, but a lonely rancher, until he meets the indomitable Drew.  Drew is a fashion designer whose sister is marrying Duncan’s best friend at the ranch, and it’s his job to make the ladies beautiful.  He is full of swish with not a shy bone in his body, and he is catnip to Duncan’s inner feline.
 
The plot was a curious mix that shouldn’t work, but did.  The two men tried hard to find some semblance of balance in order to make their attraction work itself into something more.  A few days together read like a great many more, so while there was basically insta-love, which I normally don’t like outside paranormal books, it didn’t actually feel like insta-love, but rather like they had plenty of time to feel each other out, learn about themselves, and then come together as a pair.  The chemistry is strong, and their intimacy was very hot!
 
There is a decent size peripheral cast of characters, and I enjoyed watching their antics as well as those of the protagonists while dealing with the peripherals.  Written in third person past tense, the dialogue is engaging, the humor is strong, and the story pulls you deeply into their world.
 
A solid, fun read, I am rating this at four stars and recommending it for anyone on the lookout for depth and humor with love woven throughout.  I’m fast becoming a fan of Alexa Milne, and this is just another shining example of why!
