Angus Donaghue and Kerry Hunter have spent their entire lives in the coastal Scottish village of North Berwick--battling wits and hurling insults. It was just the way of things.
Yet, Angus begins to question himself when his mates in The Captain’s Folly suggest a different type of connection to his life-long nemesis.
In between her three jobs and caring for her terminally ill mother, Kerry finds herself still trading barbs with the sarcastic drummer every night during her bartending shift at The Ship’s Inn Tavern. But here was the problem --what are you supposed to do when the one person you can’t get off your mind is the one person who gets on your last nerve?
What is it they say? All's fair in love and war?
Forget that...it’s all complicated in love and war.
Kerry walked out of the pub and automatically turned left to head for home. She was just walking blindly when a shadow stepped away from the wall of the building into her path.
“You know, I believe I’d like the sound of you calling out my name if you didn’t put so much hate behind it.”
“That’s because I loathe you. Don’t you have some kind of home to go to?”
“It’ll keep. I’m more interested in exploring what’s really going on here, Ker.”
“Nothing. Nothing is going on here.”
He took a couple steps closer, and she backed up. He stepped forward again. “Come on, Kerry. You can’t tell me you really believe that.”
“I can at that.”
“Look me in the eye and say it, then.” His voice was gruff with frustration, and he leaned down into her space. Kerry looked up at him, at war with herself.
“Ye can’t! You can’t look me in the eye and say there’s nothing here,” he challenged.
Blast it! Kerry threw up her head and glared at him. “No. Satisfied?”
She skirted around him to walk on, but he snagged her arm and pulled her back. Angus ran his hands along her jaw and into her hair to trap her. He dropped his forehead to hers. “Why are we fighting it then?”
Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly at golf when she’s not crafting novels. She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and does them frequently and with abandon. She creates endearing and feisty characters full of humor and just a little awkwardness to “keep them real". Although a possible mystery series is under current exploration, her current works are primarily aligned with the contemporary romance/chick lit genres. Seeking Solace, her debut novel which released in April 2015, is the prequel to The Captain’s Folly Series releasing spring/summer 2017, which explores the stories of three male characters in the debut novel. She also has published Revolution, which is a contemporary romance with a paranormal twist.
