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.

My Review
4 Stars!

I loved this little story!  This was one of those fulfilling yet short reads that I just love to pick up every once in a while.  Although this story is listed as #2.5 in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone.  I actually haven't read anything by Jennifer McQuiston before this story and I followed everything without any issues.

I fell in love with the two main characters in this story.  I really liked the fact that they weren't perfect.  William gets completely flustered at times and Penelope has a stutter.  It was so nice to see the human side of these characters complete with flaws.  It really helped me relate to the story. 

The chemistry between the pair was wonderful and the emotions between them felt so authentic.  I loved that Penelope made William nervous.  It was also very nice to see such an independent female character in a historical story.  Penelope knew what she wants and worked to get it.  It would have taken a woman with a lot of guts to be a reporter during this time period and I believe that Penelope would been able to do it.

I was really impressed that a little bit of humor made its way into this story.  The butcher and the rest of the townspeople were just wonderful characters.   All in all this was exactly the kind of novella that I like to read.  It was a fun, touching story that left me feeling completely satisfied after a short time reading.  I would highly recommend this story to all fans of historical romance.

I received a copy of this book from Avon Impulse via Edelweiss for the purpose of providing an honest review.
