As if being newly single isn’t brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield’s friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up. When Sloane insists she’s waiting for a certain sexy fictional Highlander to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland to find her a new boyfriend. She’d rather have a root canal. But if she can find a Highland hunk to “break her heart” before her friends arrive…
In a remote Highland village, Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the family pub afloat. Everything is falling apart, he’s running out of money, and now there’s an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad. But then Sloane asks Galen to be her pretend Highland boyfriend…and offers him enough money to save the pub. It’s only for a few days, he figures. What’s the worst that could happen?
I love Julia London! I admit I was intrigued to see her writing as Jessa McAdams, I couldn’t wait to read The Perfect Bargain…a contemporary romance set in Scotland. <sigh> I was ready for a sexy Highlander.
I am never disappointed with London’s characters. Her characters are well developed and believable with undeniable chemistry. Sloane and Galen strike the perfect bargain. She needs a pretend boyfriend and he needs the money for the family pub. I very much enjoyed their banter and that they tried to deny any attraction.
The Perfect Bargain is the perfect getaway read, whether you take it to read on vacation or you’re reading to get away to a new destination. You can’t go wrong with a Highlander that’s #GotKilt.
