She needs a fake boyfriend fast… but love doesn’t come cheap!
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?
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia London writing as Jessa McAdams!

Fun, sexy, and made me want to hop on a plane to Scotland to find my own Scot (much to my husband's dismay). London does a great job conveying the adorable accent, as well as a wonderful setting that I could almost picture it was so well written. Sloane's friends annoyed me, but as they were a sm... ...more
Contemporary romances aren’t my usual fare but Julia London’s pairing of a prim American heroine, a hunky Scottish hero, a charming Scottish setting, some great secondary characters, plenty of humour and a sexy romance made this most enjoyable.

Maybe with a better story development and writing st... ...more
Alright Lassies. Stop right there. You’re going to need a chilled glass of wine, or maybe something a little heavier like some Scotch whiskey to cool you down since The Perfect Bargain is going to heat you up.
Set in the beautiful yet, non-touristy landscape of Gairloch, Scotland, Sloane Chatfield... ...more

I looked down at the percentage I’d read and was surprised to find I had only read 13% and was also surprised at how many times I had laughed out loud at how naïve and funny Sloane was and what an absolute tease Galen was. They were truly a perfect match. I think the 1 and 2 star rev... ...more
