Tessa bought her dream house but discovered she needed to make some renovations so she could actually reach things.  Gavan is a woodworking contractor sent by Tessa’s cousin, Jamie, to help her. 

Tessa’s Highlander is the first book in the Love’s Influence series and the first book I have read by this author.  The author did a wonderful job in creating, not only the main characters but showcasing some of the insecurities each had.  At first their interaction was like oil and water, even though both are attracted to each other.  Both have to overcome past experiences to finally admit they would make mistakes, but also loved each other, especially Gavan because of his jealousy. 

The chemistry between Gavan and Tessa is hot and the author did a good job with the various scenarios between the two.  I had to laugh at both their reactions when Jamie showed up for dinner.  I actually know someone that reacted the way Gavan did in the epilogue and was laughing hysterically because I could go back and see this in my mind.  

The way Tessa’s publicist steamrolls everybody to get what she wants both Tessa and Gavan to do is priceless.  The two main secondary characters were so true to life because I could just see the reactions to them in my mind.  This will not be the last book by this author I will read and look forward to the next book in this series.
