Series: Second Sons #2.5
Published by Harper Collins on January 27th 2015
Genres: Fiction, Historical, Regency, Romance, Scottish
William MacKenzie is the heir to the Kilmartie earldom and as such is protective and proud of his village ‘Moraig’. He comes up with a plan to help his village and it’s economy by allowing a journalist to cover the Highland games and show him the beauty of Moraig. Unfortunately for William, the reporter is a woman, a rather fetching one at that, who turns his Cambridge educated brain into mush, making him look like an ‘idiot’
Penelope Tolbertson is a new at her job journalist, she’s visiting the village ‘Moraig’ for an of article about the Highland games and the town. Penelope has a stutter, she considers herself a spinster but she’s also an independent, slightly odd and intelligent woman.
This is a novella and is quite short so the complete focus of the story is on the couple. Both have some first misguided impressions of each other but they soon get to know more about each other and can’t help but fall in love with each other. I really liked William, he was so adorable, I don’t know but there’s something very enchanting about a smitten and slightly baffled guy that I can’t help but like *dreamy sigh*. For a historical novel, the book sure had a very modern feeling to it.
Quibbles: I felt like I knew a lot more about William than about Pen which isn’t how I prefer my protagonists, I want to know both of them equally well. It should have been a bit longer and the ending felt slightly rushed to me.
Overall, it’s a sweet and entertaining story about two unique individuals filled with some humor and soft romance. Happy Reading!
