After her long-time boyfriend breaks up with her, Sloane Chatfield’s well-meaning friends are so determined to put her back in the saddle that they’re borderline obnoxious. When Sloane insists she’s waiting for Jamie Fraser to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland… to find her a new boyfriend. In order not to have her vacation ruined, Sloane is determined to pre-empt them. All she has to do is find the most remote part of the Highlands, get there first, find a Scot who will pretend to be her boyfriend, then break-up before they arrive. She figures no friend will try and match her up while she’s nursing a second broken heart.

Galen Buchanan has his hands full trying to keep the family pub afloat in a remote Highland village. Everything is falling apart, he’s running out of money, and now there’s a buttoned-up American princess that has, for some reason, landed on his doorstep…. and takes his best table and hogs his wifi all day. She may be cute, but she’s also full of free advice and doesn’t like the way they do things in the Highlands. Then she proposes something completely outrageous—that he be her pretend 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?



"With its beautiful and charming Scotland setting, hot highlander hero and likeable heroine, The Perfect Bargain took me on a hilarious adventure I'd happily go on again and again." ~Cindi Madsen, USA Today Bestselling author of Falling For Her Fiance
The back and forth banter between the two was hilarious, and the chemistry was white-hot. A perfect blend of humor and romance.  ~Julie B. The Reading Cafe
In a romance novel, the best part for me is to be left wondering what will happen next at every turn. This book had me laughing, crying and waiting with anticipation of the next spectacular moment. ~Lindsay Grey Author on Author Book Reviews

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 small ...more

This was a lot of fun. Loved the idea of them looking for a Jamie Fraser and pretty much the entire plot.

Sloane is an interesting character. I liked that she's trying to work on herself and that even though she's nursing a broken heart, she's still open to new experiences. Galen was fun too. I love ...more

This was such a sweet book. There were no emotional roller coasters or suspense really but it was the cutest love story. I loved the set up and her friends are a blast.

It was an easy and very enjoable read.
Sure, there are some parts that had flaws or didn't make sense. But did I have a good time, yes!
Was it funny and a light read, yes!
Above all that, it includes an Scotish hero and a sweet highland village :))
Maybe with a better story development and writing style ...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 ha ...more

Great read..

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 review ...more

This was a cute read. It's a romance so of course it has a lot of the romance genre tropes, but it was still enjoyable. There is a good chance that I would read more in this series. ...more

By Shelagh June 30, 2015

It's amazing how a harmless little lie can spiral out of control and equally amazing how money can get in the way of a good relationship yet without these two factors it's doubtful that Sloane and Galen would have discovered just how perfect they were for each other.
