Another gorgeous novel from this author. The 'will they won't they' aspect will keep you guessing and may frustrate you as the main characters are constantly misinterpreting situations and innocent words as they battle their sexual tensions and obvious chemistry. With beautiful description, it feels like you're travelling the globe with handsome Nairn and feisty, capable Aela, and the sub plot of sabotage, will keep you reading till the end.

This is a beautifully written story not only in the Author's writing style but in the way the Author describes everything to you, you can see it all especially the way she describes Nairn's Scottish castle.

It is such a lovely romance story the build-up of the romance starts at the beginning but doesn't really get going to the last few chapters, you are definitely kept on your toes with the sexual tension between Nairn and Aela.

I totally loved Aela she is so witty and the banter between Nairn and herself was fun to read. She's the sort of women who speaks her mind doesn't hold back from what needs to be said and oh does she have a few words to say to Nairn especially on the first interview she has with him.

Nairn is sexy as hell but blows so hot and cold especially where Aela is concerned I found myself wanting to slap them both up the head and tell them to get it on all ready.They both let jealousy get to them and Aela tries a few times to back off and tell's him the just need to be friends. Nairn does take in everything Aela says and surprises her a few times in the story and does show a caring side to himself near the end.

I know I shouldn't have laughed as Nairn was in casts one on his leg and one on his arm so when their lust becomes too much the way they go about trying to have sex made me chuckle. I can only image what the sex would be like when he gets his arm and leg back as it's pretty hot to begin with.

There is a little back story as someone is trying to ruin Nairn and his businesses and I did think it could have been built up a bit more it just felt like it ended up solved too quickly.But the one thing i did like about this plot is Nairn gave Aela every chance to leave but she wouldn't she wanted to stay to protect him.

The ending is just lovely and this story is one you still think about after you have finished it.

Take Me Now is funny, exciting and full of mystery. Great characters who compliment each other well, but infuriate each other all the way through. The story is great fun as Nairn and Aela misinterpret each other and jump to conclusions, driven by lust, jealousy and love. The beautiful setting is vivid, dramatic and serene, contrasting well with Nairn's fast-paced business life, leaving Aela spinning in circles while Nairn's moods swing to and fro.
A thoroughly enjoyable read: passionate, sexy and addictive!

HASH(0x901b3a44) out of 5 stars Strong 4 1/2 review for this Lovely Romance! 10 Sept. 2012
By Karen Michelle Nutt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Narin Malcom needs a competent aide and chauffer. Aela Cameron needs a job and agrees to be at this Scottish hunk's beck and call. However, someone is bent on ending Narin's life, but danger to life and limb is not the only thing these two must worry about when their passing fancy becomes something more. Hearts are in jeopardy of being broken if their romantic trysts do not eventually involve trust and commitment.

Ms. Jardine romantic tale contains a wounded hero you'll want to nurse back to health yourself. The foreplay will keep you breathless and Narin and Aela's banter will make you chuckle. The description the Scottish castle is rich and brings alive the old structure in vivid detail. As for the secondary character: I really adored Ruarhid, Narin's father.

The only minor disappointment was that I'd hoped for a little more danger and suspense when I realized Narin's injuries were from someone attempting to end his life, but this story is a romance first and foremost and a delightful one at that. I highly recommend this lovely romance.

HASH(0x901b3a98) out of 5 stars Take Me Now 12 Aug. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Take Me Now is full of humor and sensuality. The characters are engaging, and I don't just mean the main characters. I especailly liked Ruarhid, Nairn's father. The chemistry between Nairn and Aela is palpable and full of tension, which I love. The setting (a Scottish castle) was exotic and rich and Nancy's descriptions were powerful and mentally stimulating. Nairn was sexy, and an engaging hero. Aela had a sense of humor that made me smile several times. This was a great read, one that I think you all will enjoy.
HASH(0x901b3ed0) out of 5 stars Good Reading 17 Feb. 2016
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If a reader likes a romance story where the female lead is the stronger character, then Take Me Now>/i> is the book to explore. Aela, the heroine, is funny, sunny and accomplished. Her bubbly personality is introduced early on and she endears herself to other secondary characters in the novella as well as the reader. Nairn is the injured hero with a type A++ personality that is so driven, his first impression is kind of loopy and goofy because he checked himself out of the hospital before he should have and was still ‘out of it’. His candid ramblings, though brief, give a clear insight into what his brain, unfettered by logic, societal expectations and proper behavior, already knows – Nairn’s inner lover is already smitten. It takes a while for the rest of him to catch up.

The mystery that stirs the plot is basic corporate sabotage. Who could it be, what is the motive, and who will have the next casualty, are some of the questions that must be answered before the ultimate deal can be wrapped up and the end of their working relationship comes to pass. The author did a good job of keeping the villain under wraps until the big reveal.

In this novella, the personal conflict is based upon assumptions. Like I said earlier, Nairn is smitten but he’s really slow on the uptake. What he’s quick to do is tumble into sulky, grim episodes of jealously every time Aela talks about the mysterious Jed, goes out on the town by herself or smiles and seems to have a special relationship with his father. The poor hero just can’t come out and ask for explanations; no he gets all grumpy and becomes an AA+ workaholic, until he thaws, until he gets uptight, until he thaws. Yeah, for such a rich business genius, the hero just can’t seem to strategize a relationship as well as he does a business deal so he’s an emotional yo-yo. You can imagine how that affects Aela. And that is where the heroine’s strength comes in. She does not need Nairn, or any man, to take care of her. She’s confident in who she is, so sure, his hot and cold routine annoys and ticks her off but she does what she wants, and usually, somehow, she does it with a cheeky grin. Which makes the hero even growlier and that makes me laugh even more. He’s not used to a woman who acts like she does, and that’s why I liked their dynamic. She’s the perfect woman for him because she stands up to him.

The book’s pace does plod because of all the travel details. Many readers might find all the descriptions, locations and step by step process of their working relationship fascinating because it does provide a level of authenticity to the telling. I just found it bogged down my reading speed. It proves to me that the heroine knows her stuff, especially flying, and the hero gives her plenty of opportunities to show it, but I didn’t find it helped the romance grow much. I’m not a fan of quite that much minutia.

The solving of the mystery is mild. The ultimate revelation of their love for each other is mild. The tone of the novel is sweet and busy. I liked the dialogue between both Nairn and Aela and I enjoyed the small touches the author had Aela giving Nairn when he was at his most stressed. Those were loving touches that soothed and showed her level of caring for the hero. It’s those sweet, tender moments that made this such a nice story to read. Take Me Now has a light plot with a pleasant and enjoyable romance. It’s a good book.

HASH(0x901b52b8) out of 5 stars Fun and Funny--a great romance set in Scotland 27 Mar. 2013
By Loki's Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Take Me Now" is a fun contemporary romance set in Scotland, a swift-paced story with humorous moments that will leave the reader laughing and sighing. All in all, the story has an amazing setting. Nancy Jardine does a wonderful job of transporting the audience to Scotland with breathtaking descriptions of the landscape. The author does a great job with dialogue, bringing the brogue of our hero to life within the reader's imagination.

Nairn Malcolm is a wounded hero. Literally. The story kicks off following a motorcycle accident that left the poor man with broken limbs and ribs, not to mention a concussion rendering him almost nonsensical. His mental incapacity leads to some of the funniest moments in the book, right in the opening chapters. Nairn starts off cagey, an "ogre" in Aela's words, and the reader proceeds with a mental image of Shrek that proves rather apt. (Except, our handsome Scotsman is not, in fact, green.) However, his disposition improves as the story progresses and he gradually demonstrates that he has a sense of humor and a caring nature, in addition to being an absolute hunk.

In many ways, Aela is harder to pin down that Nairn. She is a complicated woman with a wide range of skills, from pilot to office assistant. She possesses a wicked wit, and our hero immediately falls prey to her biting mockery, deservedly so. But she is also capable of laughing at herself when the occasion suits. In many ways, Aela is a more developed character than Nairn, possessing even more oniony layers than the ogre-hero. Beneath her outward confident, she has uncertainties and doubts which make her endearing and likeable.

The hero and heroine share great charisma. They are funny and entertaining, and their interaction never grows stale or boring. The sex scenes are sensual with some really great foreplay lead in, but there are moments approaching consummation when I would have liked more detail. Narin's father, Ruarhid, is a great addition to the story and is very likeable as a supporting character.

At times, I wanted the plot to move faster. There is a suspense subplot, but it gets lost amidst more trivial concerns as the novel progresses, and could have been more fully developed to add an element of excitement to the story. "Take Me Now" is an enjoyable read for those who like contemporary romances with swift pacing and entertaining storytelling.
