Her Highland Fling
Let the Games Begin …
William MacKenzie has always been protective of his Scottish village. When Moraig's economy falters, he has the perfect solution to lure wealthy Londoners to this tiny hamlet: resurrect the ancient Highland Games! But for this to work, William knows he needs a reporter to showcase the town in just the right light.
A female journalist might be a tolerated oddity in Brighton, but newly minted reporter Penelope Tolbertson is discovering that finding respect in London is a far more difficult prospect. After receiving an invitation to cover Moraig's Highland Games, Penelope is determined to prove to her London editors just how valuable she can be.
Penelope instantly captures William's heart, but she is none too impressed with the gruff, broody Highlander; however, as she begins to understand his plans, Penelope discovers she may want more from him than just a story. She's only got a few days … but maybe a few days are all they need.
A short, charming read about the character Pen that the reader met in the previous book Summer is for Lovers. She’s such a cute character who is willing to try different things and in this story, she suggests a slightly improper proposition. Her stuttering sets her apart from other heroines and although she’s slightly embarrassed about it, she still sets out to do what she wants.
She definitely wants William. It was funny that almost every chapter opened with him saying“I’m an idiot” or another character saying “You’re an idiot”. It was quite a running joke and made me laugh every time. His character was slightly gruff in the first book (What Happens in Scotland) but in this one he becomes tongue tied and a little bumbling and accident prone. Yes, it’s because of Pen. So it was sweet how his character lightened up in this one.
Not a serious plot in this story, just a little love match. It seems that each book in this series a little different than the last. I’m glad we got a glimpse into William’s and Pen’s love story. The author’s writing is very easy going and almost always has a humorous tilt in each storyline.
