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 is all they need.

I can't tell you how excited I was to finally read Penalope's story. I loved her in Summer is for Lovers and I've been waiting for her book ever since. When it was announced that Her Highland Fling was Pen's novella, I giggled happily and tried to wait as patiently as I could for it to appear on my Kindle. Jennifer, you slay me. I love the witty and hysterical banter that flows between her characters. I love that she's not afraid to write a strong heroine that wants to experience life in a time where it is frowned upon. Jennifer's heroes want the best for their heroine, but are quick to throw their best intentions out the window at a moment's notice. William and Pen were perfection. If I could be a historical romance heroine, I'd want to be Pen. She's smart, funny, and not afraid to venture out on her own. William... Poor William... He had me cracking up the entire time. The man's brain was befuddled and he's clearly in love. *swoon*

Jennifer... Thank you for such a fun little novella. As with every other McQuiston book, I devoured it and went back to re-read a couple passages. If you want something that'll make you laugh on the first page and fall in love on the last, you need to read Jennifer's books.

A veterinarian and infectious disease researcher by training, Jennifer McQuiston has always preferred reading romance to scientific textbooks. She resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, their two girls, and an odd assortment of pets, including the pony she promised her children if mommy ever got a book deal.
