New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 4.5 Star Review: A Highlander Walks Into A Bar by Laura Trentham


We are excited to share the release of A HIGHLANDER WALKS INTO A BAR, the first book in a new duet by author Laura Trentham! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!


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?

Tracey’s Review

I went into A HIGHLANDER WALKS INTO A BAR with only a few things in mind…it’s by Laura Trentham, an author that I’ve read and enjoyed before, it’s a small town romance, of which I’m a fan, and, it’s set in the South, a win for me (note the blog name… 😘 ). I could not be happier with this book, which left me smiling from start to finish and laughing out loud on more than one occasion.

As hard as she tries not to be, Isabel is wide open, a creative soul intent on hiding her light under a bushel. It takes a very sexy Scot on a mission to retrieve his erstwhile uncle to open her eyes and give her the push she needs to embrace the things that really make her heart sing. Turnabout is only fair, because spending time with Isabel in the very special town of Highland, GA, opens Alasdair’s eyes to the really important things in life. The romance is sweet and sexy, a little bit steamy, but just the right amount for Izzy and Alasdair, and there is plenty of humor, which makes for a nice balance and a really entertaining and heartwarming read.

Quirky supporting characters, including Isabel’s mother and Alasdair’s uncle, make the road to their enlightenment all the more delightful, and help create a very special place that I’m looking forward to visiting again. Which is great, because there is more Highland to come, and I can’t wait. 💖
