About A Highlander in a Pickup by Laura Trentham

When a gorgeous new man—in a kilt—comes to town, life in Highland, Georgia will never be the same…

Iain Connors is the poster boy for the strong and silent type. Growing up a loner at Cairndow Castle in Scotland with only the cliffs and moors for company, it’s understood Iain will assume the mantle of Cairndow groundskeeper when his father is ready to relinquish it. But his stint in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces has opened up a whole new world—and now, rather than settle down, he accepts an invitation to travel to the States to take charge of the Highland Games. After all, he’s led men into battle, how hard can planning a party be?

Anna Maitland is ready to step up for her best friend Isabel Blackmoor, who can’t run the Games in their hometown this year. Surely Anna, a dance instructor with boundless energy, spirit, and charm, is up for the challenge? What she doesn’t anticipate is a man in a kilt who turns up claiming he’s the one in charge. What’s worse about this Iain? He’s so infuriatingly handsome that she can’t help but fantasize about him whispering sweet-nothings in her ear in his rumbly, sexy brogue. . .


Review of A Highlander in a Pickup

Delving back into the world of contemporary romance (because I just had to read the follow up to A Highlander Walks into a Bar), I flew through the pages of A Highlander in a Pickup.

Iain Connor’s natural charm belies his shyness.  Except where Anna is concerned.  With her, he never says the right thing.  Anna is bound and determined to run the festival and relegate Iain to the job of pooper-scooper.  Here’s the problem.  Attraction.

I enjoyed the snappy dialog between Anna and Iain that often quickly went from antagonistic to helpful to charming to……you know.  This is a wonderful couple (or will be by the end of the book).  And Iain – strong, quiet, animal lover with a brogue – need I say more?

A secondary story line about one of the dancers in Anna’s dance class brought tears to my eyes – in a good way!

I absolutely adored this second book in the Highland Georgia series.  Down-to-earth characters, a small town setting, a little bit of humor and a delightful romance make A Highlander in a Pickup an enchanting read.

Through Netgalley, the publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
