I love romantic comedy. I love Scotland. So A Highlander Walks Into A Bar had me at its name. And it did not disappoint.
Isabel Buchanan is surprised at the souvenir her mother, Rose, brings home from Scotland: a tall, estate manager with a brogue. Except he’s not really the estate manager, he’s the ninth earl of Cairndow, hiding his true name and identity. Soon, his nephew, slated to become the tenth earl, though hopefully not for a long time, follows him to Highland, Georgia.
Alasdair Blackmoor is concerned about the American woman who convinced his uncle to leave Scotland and Cairndow, so he detours from his business in New York to find out what’s what. Instead of the scheming fortune-hunter ensnaring his uncle whom he expected, he meets Izzy.
Their attraction is immediate. The sparks fly off the page. Their banter is witty and fun.
Alasdair unwittingly sets in motion a complication that he knows and the reader knows will end badly for all. I loved how Trentham resolved that.
A Highlander Walks Into a Bar is a fun and perfect summer rom com and I highly recommend it!
This book will be available July 30, but I suggest you pre-order it now so you can read it ASAP!
–For my friends and readers who prefer their reads to be sweet like their desserts, there is one sex scene.
