Read an Excerpt HERE:
If you liked William (the hero’s brother from What Happens in Scotland) and Penelope (the heroine’s sister from Summer is for Lovers), these two have scored their very own romance in my new novella, Her Highland Fling.
William MacKenzie has always been protective of Moraig, the little Scottish town he calls home. When the town’s economy falters, he comes up with the idea to organize Moraig’s first Highland Games to promote the town as a tourist destination for wealthy Londoners. But for his idea to work, they need to bring in a reporter who will 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. When she is invited to cover Moraig’s inaugural Highland Games, Penelope hopes to prove herself to her London editors.
William is smitten with the daring female reporter who arrives in Moraig with a nose for news and a smile to slay hearts, but she is initially none too impressed with him. As she comes to understand what lies at the heart of William’s plans for Moraig, Penelope soon revises her opinion of the bumbling Highlander, and realizes she wants more from him than just a story. She’s only got a few days…but maybe a few days is all they need.
Can she convince him to indulge in matters of the flesh rather than the heart?
Or will William convince Penelope there is more to their fling than she thinks?

Michele, Goodreads: I was blown away by the author’s writing style and am so impressed that she managed to convey so much in a novella. Whimsical Scottish lore, amusing antics among the highlanders, and a discerning, self-sufficient heroine all worked together flawlessly to create a story that charmed me from beginning to end. Without a doubt, I’ll be reading the other stories in this series!
