Length: 69,000 words

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?

Wendy's Review: I loved the concept of this story but it missed the mark for me on a few things. I loved the whole "my friends are my family" idea and really enjoyed how they looked out for each other throughout the whole book. I was lost a few times with a few phrases and all around wording, I re-read lots of paragraphs to understand who was talking when. Drew and Duncan danced around each others feelings without really opening up and talking about what they truly wanted until the end of the book. Miscommunication and lack of telling each other how you feel was drawn out. The age difference was mentioned a few times but was never really a problem, I think Duncan's lack of experience was the biggest issue to him. Drew being the younger of the two, lives in London and came to Scotland to visit his sister, this is where it gets choppy to me. Everyone threw Drew at Duncan, Duncan never came out of the closet to anyone, except maybe something that was mentioned once that happened in school, but was never brought up again. All of his friends realized he was gay but he never told them or talked about it? 
I received an ARC for an honest review- I do not rate books on typos, but this one had words missing in the sentences and no continuity in a few scenes. I hope the ARC I received was going back to the line editor for a re-read because this book had a few issues.
