A Highlander Walks Into a Bar answers the age-
old question: What would you do if your mother brought home a handsome six-foot tall
Scotsman as a souvenir? (You thought I was going with, What does a Scotsman wear under his
kilt, didnâ€™t you? ☺)
Our heroine, Isabel Buchanan, tries to her suspicions the
man is planning to take advantage of her mother, because she has bigger problems. The
annual Highland Festival is only three weeks away and she and her mother are in charge!
Enter Alasdair Blackmoor, another handsome Scot who
harbors his own suspicions about Isabel and her motherâ€™s intentions with his uncle. Hilarity
(and passion) ensues as Isabel and Alasdair spar and try to ferret out the truth.
A Highlander Walks Into a Bar is a wild romp
during a Georgia summer. I dare you to name a more Southern and summery dessert than a
blackberry cobbler. This easy, delicious twist on a traditional cobbler is made in a cast iron
Âľ cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
2 piecrusts, refrigerated and ready to roll out
Âľ cup white sugar
Extra butter to dot top
Step 1: Melt butter in large cast iron skillet on low-
med heat on the stove top. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Place one piecrust over
Step 2: Fill the skillet with fruit. Several cups (~four
cups) of fresh blackberries or sliced peaches or apples (or other fruit) can be used.
Step 3: Sprinkle fruit with white sugar. Cover with
second pie crust and dot liberally with butter.
Step 4: Cook at 350 degrees for thirty minutes or
until golden brown and bubbly at the edges. Serve warm with ice cream.
Tip: Crimp or tuck edges of pie crust and put a
cookie sheet underneath to catch any juices that bubble over.
Highland, GA #1
The timeless romance, soaring passionâ€”and gorgeous menâ€”of Scotland comes to
modern-day America. And the rules of love will never be the sameâ€¦
A brand new series from Laura Trentham, full of love, laughs...and highlanders!
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 uncleâ€¦
Alasdair Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia townâ€”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?
