William MacKenzie loves his little town of Moraig in Scotland, but in order for the town to thrive, it needs an influx of tourist dollars. When an opportunity arises to have a London reporter visit and write an article about Moraig, William jumps at the chance. Dressed in his kilt, he meets the stage, and is shocked to find that the reporter is a woman, Penelope Tolbertson. Normally an eloquent sort of fellow, William finds himself staring and stuttering a bit, as he is truly dumbfounded by the lovely reporter. Penelope, who has a bit of a stammer, first thinks that William is mocking her, then finds him a bit of a lummox, as he seems to have lost his ability to function around her.
Eventually, William pulls himself together enough to show Penelope his town. The two of them develop a fast friendship, and a passionate attraction. After only a few short days together, William finds himself in love. I adored this man. He was not afraid to admit his feelings, or to make sacrifices to try to build a future with Pen, who is torn about what to do. She has never thought she’d marry, and she worked hard to become a reporter. Will she be willing to alter her plans for the future?
This novella is a short, but very enjoyable read. It can stand alone, although some of the characters are from previous books, which I must now go back and read because I like Jennifer McQuiston’s writing very much. This story has warmth, charm, great characters, and a very satisfying resolution. A solid four stars to 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 is all they need.
