The countdown is on… less than a week until Thimbles and Thistles releases. Is anyone besides me excited? Anyone? Just for fun (and because ya’ll have been so patiently waiting for the book), I thought I’d give you a little peek at the characters today. Meet Ian MacGregor –
A little on the roguish side, Ian comes from a Scottish background and can roll his Rs with the best of them. Owner of the town’s lumberyard, he’s handsome and strong, fun-loving and hardworking, and knows exactly what he wants…
Mrs. Maggie Dalton –
Widowed more than ten years, Maggie builds a successful life for herself as a dressmaker. She can ride any horse she can saddle, has a kind heart, and sometimes a sharp tongue. Generally, she gets along well with everyone, but for some reason Ian rubs her the wrong direction.
Here’s a little snippet from the story:
Maggie could have sworn Ian had stood at the door listening to them talk by the knowing look on his face.
“I’m sure nothing we discussed would interest you – just topics of importance to women.Girl stuff.”
“Girl stuff, huh? Why do you think that wouldn’t interest me?” Ian waggled his eyebrows at her. “I’m interested in girls in general, you in particular, and would love to discover more about your stuff.”
Too amused to be offended, Maggie laughed. “Mr. MacGregor, you do say the most outlandish things. What am I going to do with you?”
Ian gave her a rakish wink. “I’ve got a few ideas. Care to hear them?”
“No, sir. I don’t believe I do.”
Have a marvelous weekend everyone!
