Diana Gendarme has spent her life doing for others, so when she moves into her dream cottage, she’s ready for some “me” time. But the cottage is shabby and her new neighbors quite close. One of them makes a din in his blacksmith’s forge all day long yet has the nerve to complain about her beagle’s yodeling. He’s the last sort of man who should attract Diana. So why can’t she resist the absurd dares he persists in issuing?
Reg Coltsfoot doesn’t plan on falling for his neighbor. A lifelong charmer, he’s used to women falling for him instead. There’s just something about Diana that has him longing to draw her out of her staid life and into his. Maybe it’s the magic of spring, but Reg will do all he can to persuade Diana she needs his laughter and his love to light her days.
He had assumed a wide, protective stance and he looked absolutely nothing like the image of Mr. Coltsfoot lodged in Diana’s head. In fact, this could not be Mr. Coltsfoot. He did not appear old enough. A caregiver, perhaps. Or Mr. Coltsfoot’s son.
He had a bared head of thick, dark hair tumbling in an unruly fashion over his brow, and a face suffused with outrage. He wore a white shirt unbuttoned at the neck and a pair of tan slacks, and he made Diana suck in a breath as if someone had struck her in the gut.
“I’m sorry, is that your pet?” she called, seeing the creature nestled comfortably in his arms. She didn’t know if he heard her over Amundsen’s baying, which continued unabated.
He snarled in response. Diana could take it for nothing but a snarl. He tossed back his head and shouted, “I hope your dog is not going to be a problem.”
Diana did not appreciate being shouted at, though she supposed under the circumstances he had no other option.
He’s not my dog. The words trembled on her lips but she did not speak them. To all intents and purposes, Amundsen had become her responsibility.
He’d been Dad’s dog, a loyal if ofttimes trouble-making companion. He could decimate an unsecured kitchen garbage pail in mere seconds. He could open a refrigerator door and select whatever appealed to him. He could chew up and destroy anything not made of cast iron.
About Laura Strickland:
Multi award-winning author Laura Strickland delights in time traveling to the past and searching out settings for her books, be they Historical Romance, Steampunk or something in between. Her first Scottish Historical hero, Devil Black, battled his way onto the publishing scene in 2013, and the author never looked back. Nor has she tapped the limits of her imagination. Venturing beyond Historical and Contemporary Romance, she created a new world with her ground-breaking Buffalo Steampunk Adventure series set in her native city, in Western New York. Married and the parent of one grown daughter, Laura has also been privileged to mother a number of very special rescue dogs, the latest of whom is a little boy named Tinker, and is intensely interested in animal welfare. Her love of dogs, and her lifelong interest in Celtic history, magic and music, are all reflected in her writing. Laura’s mantra is Lore, Legend, Love, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
