Readers - and characters - are taken on a fun, fast-paced, heartwarming journey in Her Highland Fling. With witty banter, quirky secondary characters and intelligent writing, McQuiston brings us an entertaining tale with plenty of humor and heart. I've been rooting for Pen since meeting her in Summer is for Lovers. She deserves a man who will show her there's more to life than her pencils and notebooks and who will love her for who she is but first, she must learn to accept that love. I was intrigued by William in What Happens in Scotland but fell head over heels for him in Her Highland Fling. When he finally declares himself, I decided if Pen didn't want him I was ready to travel back in time and claim him for myself.
The village of Moraig is brought to life through McQuiston's words. Characters from previous books are an integral part of the story, adding richness without detracting focus from the hero and heroine. Touches of whimsy add charm while quiet moments between William and Penelope fan the flames of desire in addition to gradually deepening the emotion and feelings between them.
As I mentioned earlier, Pen and William were secondary characters in McQuiston's first two books. Do you need to have read those books in order to enjoy Her Highland Fling? No. McQuiston has crafted a humorous, sexy, whimsical, tender story that stands well on its own. Having said that, however, there are occasional references that you won't "get" without knowing the previous stories and while William and Pen are fully formed characters, knowing their back stories will only add a greater depth of richness to the people you meet in Her Highland Fling.
Penelope has been tasked with traveling to Moraig, the Scottish town where David Cameron and Caroline live along with James and Georgette whose story was told in What Happens in Scotland (Second Sons Series Book 1). William MacKenzie, James' brother and the Earl of Kilmartie's heir, troubled that the people of Moraig are struggling financially, comes up with a plan to gain some publicity by inviting a reporter to come and spy out Moraig and the surrounding area. He's made big plans for the reporter's visit, setting up a mini Olympic games and paying to have a room at the inn refurbished for said reporter, who he assumes will be a man. Not so, William!
Imagine William's surprise when the lovely Penelope comes off the carriage and he realizes she's the reporter, plus she has a sister who lives in the area and and with whom she plans to stay during her visit. Penelope has a stutter which has caused some insecurities in her life, but she's obviously not allowed that to hinder her goals in life - that of being a self-sufficient career woman. The huge hunky William in a kilt soon sets her off her task in more ways than one, especially when he's more than willing to show her his "water cattle" by the light of the moon where we learn Penelope has some personal goals she's set for herself totally unrelated to reporting. Of course, she eventually gets to see more sights than William intended to show her even as he falls hard and fast in love. They do find a use for the refurbished room at the inn after all. But, Penelope has a lot to reconsider since she's fought so hard for an independent life. Sweet, sweet story. Who in the world can resist a tall hunky Highlander in a kilt.
