My Highland Cowboy by Alexa Milne

How long do you need before you know?

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, 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 clothes brand noticed in the industry. He and his business partner, Joy, design individual dresses, while on the side, Drew designs and produces a line of men’s lingerie. He visits Scotland to design dresses 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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a very enjoyable read – and manages to combine the classic cowboy romance in the setting of the Highlands of Scotland – and the cowboy falls for a London-based fashion designer who, amongst other things, makes lacy male underwear! SO much opportunity for hotness, in and out of clothing!

Ms. Milne has created a story which hangs together really well; it deals with the real issues of being gay in a remote community, and the 'impossibility' of someone wanting to uproot their life and move to such a remote location – however much they may care for the person. The issues of Duncan's preferences for men or women were not looked at in any depth, even though I thought they might be. But there was no doubting the chemistry between him and Drew. The pragmatism of both men was interesting, and usually not one examined much in a romance, so I liked the issue being considered.

Overall a good read, with some lovely scenes and fabulous side characters – thank you, Ms. Milne.

Originally from South Wales, Alexa has lived for over thirty years in the North West of England. Now retired, after a long career in teaching, she devotes her time to her obsessions.

Alexa began writing when her favourite character was killed in her favourite show. After producing a lot of fanfiction she ventured into original writing.

She is currently owned by a mad cat and spends her time writing about the men in her head, watching her favourite television programmes and usually crying over her favourite football team.
