Love Potions (Warlocks MacGregor) Excerpt

Erik reached between them, grabbing the shifter as they came to the bottom of the hill. The car slowed to a stop. He looked over at her and confidently winked. She quickly turned away, focusing on the two thick white stripes painted down the center of the dark blue hood.
When the car started to move, she glanced back at him from the corner of her eyes. Erik rested his hand on his bare knee. Lydia took a deep breath. She could definitely say this was the first date she’d been on where the man was wearing a skirt.
Kilt, she corrected herself. It’s not a skirt, it’s a kilt.
And it was damned sexy on him.
On top he wore a basic white shirt, a black five button waistcoat, matching argyll jacket and a lighter wool tie. A black leather bag with silver studs wrapped his hips. Below the waist, the red and green plaid pattern fell to just above his bare knees. About three inches below the hem, longer kilt hose covered his calves.
“It’s called a sporran,” Erik said.
“Huh?” Lydia pried her eyes away from his waist, horrified to discover that she’d been staring at the man’s crotch again. Almost defensively, she said, “I wasn’t wondering what you wore under your kilt.”
“Ah, well that would be nothing at all, lassie,” Erik said, again winking at her, “but I was telling ya that the black bag you’re looking at is called a sporran.”
“Oh,” Lydia turned to the window, rolling her eyes as she mocked herself.
Great going, Lydia! Way to make him think you’re not a sex crazed whore. Wait. Did he just say he was naked under the kilt?
She peeked at him, trying to determine if he was teasing her or not.
Oh, great. It’s bad enough I can’t think straight around him, now he has to tell me he’s not wearing any underwear.
Was it too late to fake an illness and back out? Probably.
How about jumping out of the car to run home screaming?
Argh! Make conversation. Say something.
“So, do you wear your kilt often?” Lydia instantly wanted to die.
