The timeless romance, soaring passion—and gorgeous men—of Scotland comes to modern-day America. And the rules of love will never be the same…

Isabel Buchanan is fiery, funny, and never at a loss for words. But she is struck speechless when her mother returns from a trip to Scotland with a six-foot-tall, very handsome souvenir. Izzy’s mother is so infatuated by the fellow that Izzy has to plan their annual Highland Games all by herself. Well, not completely by herself. The Highlander’s strapping young nephew has come looking for his uncle…
Alasdair Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia town—or a girl as brilliant and beguiling as Izzy. Instead of saving his uncle, who seems to be having a lovely time, Alasdair decides he’d rather help Izzy with the Highland Games. Show her how to dance like a Highlander. Drink like a Highlander. And maybe, just maybe, fall in love with a Highlander. But when the games are over, where do they go from here?

My Thoughts
I gotta tell ya. I’m a complete sucker for the sexy Scotsmen in romance stories. I love picturing their clothing and accents. It’s one reason I want to go visit Scotland someday! Laura Trentham is a wonderful author and was really detailed with her characters and the descriptions. I loved this Scotsman coming to America and the ride was a fun one, for sure!
Izzy and Alasdair were absolutely perfect! They were full of wit and charm and the banter between them was oh so fun! I loved watching the sparks fly between them. When those sparks flew, let me tell ya, I felt them like my own and wow! Were they ever sizzling! I loved how full of flaws both Izzy and Alasdair were and how that made them feel so much more real to me.
With a wonderful plot line filled with fun and banter, a sizzling romance and two characters who will steal your heart and make you laugh throughout the story, this is a fabulous start to a sure to be addicting series! Grab a copy of Trentham’s book now and fall in love with a sexy Scotsman and the woman who gives him a run for his money! Can’t wait to read the 2nd installment!

About Laura Trentham

An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major–Chemical Engineering–and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.

She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. KISS ME THAT WAY, Cottonbloom Book 1, won the Stiletto Contest for Best Long Contemporary and finaled in the National Readers Choice Award. THEN HE KISSED ME, Cottonbloom Book 2, was named an Amazon Best Romance of 2016 and was a finalist for the National Excellence for Romance Fiction. TILL I KISSED YOU, Cottonbloom Book 3, is a finalist in the Maggie contest. LEAVE THE NIGHT ON, the latest Cottonbloom book, was named an iBooks Best Book of the Month and a Recommended Read from NPR.

When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she’s shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as big as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.
