Aela is interviewed about Nairn Malcolm.

It's Nairn Malcolm, from Take Me Now,  
who is in the spotlight today.

He’s the gorgeous man who features highly in TAKE ME NOW. The excerpt gives you an idea of what he’s like, and Aela Cameron adds a little bit more.

Unadulterated vigor oozed from every last bit of him—overall a dangerous concoction. Something stirred way-down-low inside Aela again. He was a real honey, and the bee in her wanted to be very sticky.
Her mind whirred. The man bore a vague resemblance to the ruggedly handsome thirty-two year old Nairn Malcolm of the internet photograph, but would the blonde limpet in the recent celebrity snapshot want to curl herself around this forbidding wreck of a man? Aela thought not. She wondered, though, if his blank expression was caused by current circumstances, or if this was his normal demeanor, since he hadn’t been smiling in the photograph either. 

With the high granite wall as his backdrop she could easily imagine this man lording over the castle, ruthlessly challenging any invaders to his domain. Taking any woman he wanted? Now there was a thought she was happy to entertain. A tiny smile broke free. Tamping down her crazed imagination she re-assessed him.
What had the guy been doing to get himself in such a state?
Who was he?

(Aela Cameron, from TAKE ME NOW, is being interviewed a few days after she starts to work for Nairn Malcolm.)

It would be great if you could tell us how you first got to know Nairn Malcolm.
Hey! Isn’t he dreamy? But no-one in the world could have called him beautiful when we first met.

How can anyone not call him handsome? Look at that photo of what he looks like…mmm…he’s one lovely hunk of man with those mesmerizing blue eyes.
Yeah! He does have the dreamiest eyes, doesn’t he? On that ruggedly good-looking face of his! Normally, you’re absolutely right. He’s the most attractive guy I’ve ever met, all six and a half feet of him. Makes my leg muscles wobble just thinking about him. Can you imagine what it might feel like to be enveloped by all those muscles of his? But, picture this? The day of our first meeting was exactly three days after his motorbike accident!

Ahh. So he was pretty bashed up?
Absolutely, although I couldn’t help but see there was one striking man below the mess. He’s just my type of guy, all rugged and gorgeous.

Did the two of you hit it off immediately?
No way! He wasn’t best pleased that I laughed at his injuries. He thought I was far too flippant. I think I was the last person he wanted to be sharing an office with.

That doesn’t sound very subtle. So, how did you manage to get the job?
I’m the least subtle person in the world! He didn’t want to hire me at first but, you know…Oh no. you’re not worming it out of me like that!  You’ll have to go to the book for more details.

Did nobody else want to work for him?
Well, even before his accident he needed a new Personal Assistant. Nairn’s got a lot of different businesses to run, but he couldn’t get anyone who wanted to live in his castle, on a lovely little Scottish island, called Lanera.

What? They didn’t want to live in a castle? That’s hard to believe. How come there wasn’t a queue of candidates beating down the doors to get the job?
Hah! No queue at all, from what I’m hearing. Nairn only had a couple of candidates, before me. They liked the idea of working for him, but they wanted to permanently base themselves in London, and that isn’t suitable for a whizz-around like Nairn Malcolm.

So he won’t want you to work at the castle all the time then?
Even after only a few days I’ve learned he’s always on the move. All over the place: and I’m so excited about it! We’re going to London, Barcelona, Paris, Oman…the Caribbean…and loads of other places.

So, you don’t mind being on a Scottish island… and travelling the globe really appeals to you?
Absolutely! That’s the perfect bit of the job! As a gal from Vancouver, the Scottish climate doesn’t bother me at all, and since I adore flying and sailing, the job is totally heaven for me. Now, of course, he doesn’t just need office assistance. His little accident means he needs someone competent to ferry him and his plaster casts all over the world…and that person is ME!

Did it take Nairn long to realize you were the best candidate, then?
You know, that’s a whole new scenario! You’ll just have to read those pages to find out more…though I will tell you I could get to like that guy a lot.

So, do you see yourself as being his assistant for quite a while?
Never!  This is just a temporary job, for a few weeks, before I head back to Vancouver…


Nairn Malcolm’s looking for the impossible. He needs a highly skilled, enterprising aide who’ll be at his beck and call 24/7. No ordinary Jane Doe will do. He doesn’t expect the only candidate who drops in at his Scottish castle for an interview to be so competent…or so stunning.
Aela Cameron’s got exactly the right mix of talents to satisfy all Nairn Malcolm’s needs, and more. She loves the jobs he needs done, adores his castle, and finds his frenetic lifestyle energising. But she’s only looking for temporary: not to fall in love with the man.
Can Nairn convince Aela she’s tailor-made for him in every way…and not a passing fancy?
