A Highlander Walks Into a Bar Cover Image

Published July 30th 2019 by St. Martin’s Paperbacks

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 Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked the storyline, it was easy to get hooked on. The story flowed very smoothly and I read it almost in one sitting.

The most powerful aspect of this novel was certainly the characterization. Laura Trentham creates likeable, vivid characters engaged in fun and exciting stories. The characters were realistically written, they have struggles that many people can relate to. What made this story really work for me was the instantly relatable, girl-next-door heroine, Isabel. The hero, Alasdair, stole my heart. He was the perfect gentleman, very posh and loyal to his family. And yet he has a bit of an odd outlook on life. The future he has envisioned will bring him professional success and money, but not happiness. With Isabel, he’s thoughtful, protective and witty. He’s actually a very kind and considerate person who always notices the feelings of the people around him. I really enjoyed the banter between Alasdair and Isabel, they had great chemistry. I was really curious about the development of their relationship as I rooted for them even though they are so different from each other.

Alasdair refuses to watch his uncle, Gareth Blackmoor, allegedly being taken advantage of, he really cares about him. At first, he is very suspicious about Isabel and her mother, Rose Buchanan. He finds his uncle’s open display of affection for Rose rather shocking. Alasdair and Gareth hide their true identity and lying doesn’t sit well with Alasdair.

This is a story of finding the missing piece to one’s life, of finding the courage to take a chance on love. The characters’ personalities develop as time goes by. Overall if you are looking for something lighthearted, this book is perfect for you! I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series!

Many thanks to the publisher for my invitation to the blog tour!

Excerpt

From A Highlander Walks into a Bar. Copyright © 2019 by Laura Trentham and reprinted with permission from St. Martin’s Paperbacks.

Chapter One

“I brought home a surprise!” Rose Buchanan threw her arms out wide as if embracing the world. From the sto- ries she told to the way she entered the room, Rose was exuberant and entertaining and enjoyed being the center of attention.

Isabel Buchanan, who was perfectly content on the fringes, pushed her wavy hair off her sticky forehead with hands that trembled from the nightmare drive through At- lanta to the airport to pick up her mom. Her mom’s trip to Scotland had doubled as both research and vacation. The jammed stop-and-go traffic had left Izzy flustered and al- ready dreading their exit from the airport.

Rolling her stiff shoulders, Izzy stepped around the bumper of the car, popping the trunk open on the way. Her mom had a beautiful plaid scarf of greens and browns and blues tossed over her shoulder and what appeared to be new earrings. Either purchase might inspire her mother to gush, and she would expect reciprocal gushing from Izzy. Making an educated guess, Izzy asked, “Are those ear-rings your surprise?”

Without waiting for an answer, she hauled one of her mom’s giant wheeled suitcases closer and prepared to heave it into the back.

The sooner they got out of Atlanta, the sooner she could get back to work planning the High- land festival. Or she might pour an extra-large glass of wine and escape into a book. A guilty pleasure, consider- ing how much she still had to get in order in three scant weeks.

“Allow me, please.” A bearded man who had been roll- ing cases to the curb stepped forward with a grin and an accent Izzy couldn’t place.

She checked her pockets and winced. No cash to tip the man, and no hope her mom had thought of something so inconsequential.

“Do you like them? They’re hammered silver.” Her mom flipped her bobbed matching silver hair to the side and displayed one earring with her fingers. “And as a matter of fact, I did buy them from a lovely shop in Edin- burgh, but I brought something bigger home. Something more exciting.”

“Your scarf? It’s lovely.” Izzy gave her mom limited attention while she watched the man load suitcase after suitcase into her trunk, fitting them together like a puzzle. More luggage than her mom had left with. She waved to catch the man’s attention. “Hang on. That’s not all my mom’s stuff.”

For the first time, Izzy really looked at the man. He was close to her mom in age, and good-looking in a bear- like way with a gleaming white smile highlighted by a salt-and-pepper beard. His full head of hair was a shade darker, but graying heavily at the temples. The expres- sion on the man’s face when he looked in her mom’s direction—a mix of adoration and amusement—cleared the fog of confusion.

Lord have mercy, her mother had brought back a six- foot, two-hundred-pound-plus souvenir from Scotland.

Making Up by Helena Hunting #newrelease @SMPRomance #bookreview

Making Up Cover

Published July 16th 2019 by St. Martin’s Press

A new standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Cosy Felton is great at her job—she knows just how to handle the awkwardness that comes with working at an adult toy store. So when the hottest guy she’s ever seen walks into the shop looking completely overwhelmed, she’s more than happy to turn on the charm and help him purchase all of the items on his list.

Griffin Mills is using his business trip in Las Vegas as a chance to escape the broken pieces of his life in New York City. The last thing he wants is to be put in charge of buying gag gifts for his friend’s bachelor party. Despite being totally out of his element, and mortified by the whole experience, Griffin is pleasantly surprised when he finds himself attracted to the sales girl that helped him.

As skeptical as Cosy may be of Griffin’s motivations, there’s something about him that intrigues her. But sometimes what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas and when real life gets in the way, all bets are off. Filled with hilariously awkward situations and enough sexual chemistry to power Sin City, Making Up is the next standalone in the Shacking Up world.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What an all-around great story! Funny, cute, romantic, interesting. This story has it all. It is the fourth book in the “Shacking Up” series and tells the story of Griffin Mills, the brother of Bancroft (“Shacking Up) and Lexington (“Hooking Up”) Mills.

This time around, I felt that the focus of the story was on the growth of the characters, how they learned from their past experiences and how they started to trust and open up to each other. I really appreciated how relatable and just honest the characters were, which made the story so refreshing and easier to connect to on a personal level. And guess what? It warms your heart, it makes you smile! The characters have a radiant chemistry and their love is like a flower that you must see growing! Their romantic moments and beautiful romance really pleased me. The pace was great and at no point did I feel bored or tempted to skip any parts.

The storyline was good. Granted, it has some very conventional elements and there was a bit too much drama with Griffin’s ex-fiancée. On the surface, it’s the story of a rich hotel mogul falling for a much younger college student. But the way the story is presented is a breath of fresh air. Helena Hunting ‘s special brand of humor is just awesome!

Many thanks to Kelly from SMP Romance for my invitation to this blog tour.

Excerpt

We’re a couple of minutes away from my apartment, which also means we’re
almost at the end of our date. End-of-date protocol often means a goodnight kiss.
And I’ve eaten onions. Lots of them. What the hell was I thinking? I feel around
in my shorts pocket, hoping I have a random stick of gum. I find a tiny square packet and
pull it out, along with an old tissue. I shove that back in my pocket and sigh with relief as
I carefully open the Listerine Pocketpak. There’s one strip left. I pop it in my mouth,
wishing I had water since my mouth is dry and I’m suddenly super nervous.

Griffin pulls up in front of my apartment building. I swallow a bunch of times,
trying to get the strip to dissolve on my tongue and glance out the tinted window, seeing
it from his perspective. I don’t live in a bad part of town, but I sure as hell wouldn’t leave
this car sitting out here for any length of time unless I wanted it keyed or stripped down.
Griffin shifts into park and turns to me, one hand resting on the back of my seat
near the headrest. “I had a great time, Cosy.”

“Me too, thanks for dinner.” I tried to fork over my share, but he was quick on the
credit card draw.

“It was my pleasure.” He leans in the tiniest bit, a nonverbal cue that he’s going in
for a kiss.

I mirror the movement, giving him the go ahead. My stomach flutters in
anticipation. I exhale slowly through my nose. Even though the Listerine strip should be
doing its job to mask the onions, I don’t want to ruin the moment by breathing that in his
face.

His fingertips skim my jaw, and I close my eyes. And then his lips brush my
cheek. I wait for them to move a couple of inches to the right, but after what feels like a
lot of seconds—and is probably only a few—I crack a lid.

Griffin is still close, a wry smile on his lips and a smolder in his eyes.
“Seriously, that’s it? A kiss on the cheek?”

His smile widens, making his eyes crinkle at the corners. He’s nothing like the
guys I usually end up on dates with. College boys don’t take things slow. If I were out
with one of the guys from school, I’d be sitting in a beat-up Civic with some stupid music
playing, and he’d be all over me with his tongue halfway down my throat, copping a feel.
“I thought all the onions you ate were the equivalent to garlic for vampires.”

Griffin fingers my hair near my shoulder. I’d really like him to finger something else.
Wait. I mean I’d like to feel his hands on me. Not in my pants. Okay, maybe I’d like
them in my pants, but not after date number one.

“I wasn’t thinking, and I really like onions. A lot. In hindsight, it’s not a great date
food. I feel kinda dumb. And I guess at first I wasn’t so sure about you. How was I
supposed to know you’d actually be kind of normalish?”

“Normalish?”

“Well, you drink club soda on purpose, so you can’t be all there.” I tap his temple.
Griffin circles my wrist with his fingers and drops his head, lips brushing over my
knuckle. “We can’t all be perfect, now, can we?”

“I suppose not, and perfect is boring.”

“That it is.” He hums against my skin, and I feel it through my entire body. “I
would like to try that kiss again, if you’re still interested.”

Blurb:
From the shadows, I’ve tracked her every move.
I was just supposed to watch her. But now, I can’t stop.

She’s my obsession. My addiction. My poison.
Watching her isn’t enough.

The savage in me won’t be satisfied until I take her and make her mine.
One taste and I’m hooked. Too bad for her… I’m never letting her go.

**

Stalked. Hunted. Captured.
He took me from my life and locked me away in his compound.

The ex-con. The big bad biker. Inked, bearded, and inhumanely sized.
And yet, every time he looks at me, I melt.

This broken beast hides demons behind those brutal eyes. I hate him… and I crave him. His touch, his words, his lips.

When my enemies come for me, he vows to protect me as long as I do what he says. I’ll be secure in this prison he created for me.

But who will protect me from him?

 

 

Excerpt:
He dragged his nose through my hair, breathing me in. And then he pressed his lips against the shell of my ear, repeating the process all over again as he kissed his way down my jaw. When he finally got to my lips, I was hungry and wet for him. Dinner was scattered on the floor around us, long forgotten as his fingers grazed the hem of the silk robe against my thigh. He pulled it aside, then repeated the action on the other leg.

Leaning back, he studied my face before his eyes drifted to the part of me he’d exposed. I was open for him. Vulnerable to him. He could see everything, and I didn’t try to hide it. This was the broken, filthy part of me he needed to see. It was now or never. He could take it or leave it.

His attention drifted up while he tugged at the loose fabric covering my breasts. When he was finished, all that remained was the rope around my waist and the fabric pooling at my sides. I held my breath as I waited to see what he would do next. After everything that had just happened, more than anything, I wanted him to want me, and yet I was terrified he couldn’t. It didn’t make sense, but it was undeniable. He’d seen me at my worst, and I wanted him to tell me it was okay. It didn’t matter how fucked up I was, he wanted me anyway.

Just like with everything else, Huck did it in his own way. He reached for the zipper on his jeans, slowly dragging it down while his eyes locked onto mine. They were filled with dark promises and threats that reflected in his voice.

“Tell me to stop, Birdie. If you don’t, I’ll never let you go.”

“Don’t stop.” I forced the words from my raw throat. “Don’t you fucking dare.”

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cruel Legacy is the last installment in the trilogy. Once again, the story and plot lines had me hooked instantly. I love how this story deals with psychological issues and the way people affect one another, through love, pain or betrayal.

Natalie goes through so much, yet she is never weak or defeated. She doesn’t let her emotions cloud her judgment. She stands up for herself and she doesn’t let herself be a victim. Instead, she owns up to her mistakes and she takes responsibility for them. She has lost her writing career because of Lewis and Katherine and she sets out to take revenge from them. She wants them to be held accountable for their actions. And in this, her relationship with Penn could be collateral damage. Penn has every intention of protecting Natalie, but his affection for Lewis and Katherine is real, they are his family. Despite the pain and the anger, Natalie still needs Penn. They have unfinished business.

The plot was interesting and addictive and I liked the fact that the characters were quite complex and didn’t always do what you expected. The chemistry between them is intense, they are a perfect match. There is so much pain and beauty in their relationship.

In this last part of the trilogy, Katherine and Lewis come full circle and I loved how the author created them so that we could see utter selfishness and cruelty mixed with a bit of humanity in between to give us complex characters.

It is very easy to become completely engrossed in this story, and that is exactly what I enjoy about a good book! It sucks you in deeper with every word.

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book.

But she ripped open that divide–and there’s no going back.

My Review

Rating : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This novella is a very sexy addition to Nikki and Damien Stark’s story!  It’s always such a pleasure to catch up with these characters. They really are kindred spirits. Their love radiates off the pages, the intensity of their feelings is their strength.

The story picks up where « Damien », the fifth full-length installment in the Stark series, left off.  So, obviously, it is best to read “Damien” before starting this book, to better understand its premise.

Damien feels out of control after his daughter’s kidnapping. He feels he has failed his family and he is frustrated by his helplessness. Nikki’s world has turned dark and dangerous, some ghosts of her past are back. They both need an escape and a place of healing to be able to face their fears. Their chemistry is as intense as ever. Damien’s perceptiveness tugged at my heartstrings.

I love these characters, and I hope that Julie Kenner will revisit them again and again! This novella had a perfect combination of sexiness and sweetness.

Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!

My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book.
