Dared & Kissed – The Scotsman’s Yuletide Bride
EMMA STEWART has been in love all her life. Unfortunately, the man of her heart has no clue that she even exists. And so, one fateful day, she agrees to a dare to steal a kiss.
One wintry morning, FINNEGAN MACDRUMMOND finds himself surprised by a lass he’s never noticed before. Quick as a fox, her lips capture his before she darts off into the forest. Taken with her courage, Finn pursues her only to learn that her kiss was nothing but a dare.
Will fear and disappointment keep them apart? Or does love truly conquer all?
Agreeing to a dare, Emma Stewart steals a kiss from the one man who has held her heart for as long as she can remember. If only he knew who she was.
And then she was gone.
From one moment to the next, her touch vanished, and Finn’s eyes flew open.
As her feet carried her away from him, a teasing grin rested on her face, and yet, her eyes held no humour, but something deep and vulnerable. However, before Finn could stop her, she spun on her heel and raced across the clearing.
Chuckles rose around him, and Finn blinked as Ian and Garrett approached, large grins on their faces as they looked back and forth between him and the receding figure racing toward the tree line. “I take it ye know her,” Ian remarked with a teasing grin. “Ye could’ve introduced us. What’s the lass’ name?”
Inhaling a deep breath, Finn shook his head. “I dunno know.”
Gawking at him, Ian laughed, “Ye dunno know? Are ye saying a lassie ye dunno even know walks up to ye and kisses ye square on the mouth? Does this happen to ye a lot?”
More laughter followed, and Finn cleared his throat, trying his best to sort through his thoughts. “No, it doesna happen a lot,” he snapped, glaring at his friend. “I assure ye I’m as surprised as ye are.”
“But ye like her, do ye not?” Garrett observed as he crossed his arms in front of him, a challenge lighting up his eyes. “I’ve never seen ye so lost for words.”
Finn swallowed, shaking his head. “She’s…she’s something.” A smile tugged on the corners of his mouth, and he chuckled. “I’ve seen her around, certainly, but I’ve never…”
“Noticed her,” Cormag supplied in his usual way as though he knew precisely what the others were thinking.
Finn nodded. “Aye.”
“But ye noticed her now, aye?” Ian teased some more. “I can see that she’s made quite an impression. Why don’t ye go after her?”
Finn’s head snapped up, and for a moment, all he could do was stare at his friend.
Shaking his head, Ian laughed, then clasped a hand on Finn’s shoulder. “Go and ask her name before she kisses another.”
