A Highlander in a Pickup is the second book in award-winning author Laura Trentham's romantic comedy Highland Georgia series, full of love, laughs...and highlanders!
When a gorgeous new man—in a kilt—comes to town, life in Highland, Georgia will never be the same…

Iain Connors is the poster boy for the strong and silent type. Growing up a loner at Cairndow Castle in Scotland with only the cliffs and moors for company, it’s understood Iain will assume the mantle of Cairndow groundskeeper when his father is ready to relinquish it. But his stint in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces has opened up a whole new world—and now, rather than settle down, he accepts an invitation to travel to the States to take charge of the Highland Games. After all, he’s led men into battle, how hard can planning a party be?
Anna Maitland is ready to step up for her best friend Isabel Blackmoor, who can’t run the Games in their hometown this year. Surely Anna, a dance instructor with boundless energy, spirit, and charm, is up for the challenge? What she doesn’t anticipate is a man in a kilt who turns up claiming he’s the one in charge. What’s worse about this Iain? He’s so infuriatingly handsome that she can’t help but fantasize about him whispering sweet-nothings in her ear in his rumbly, sexy brogue. . .

WOW!!! A Highlander in a Pickup is another amazing story by Laura Trentham, book two in her Highland, Georgia series.

Anna Maitland had no problem agreeing to help her best friend Izzy, with getting everything ready for the Highland Games held in their hometown. As a dance instructor, Anna has boundless energy, spirit, and charm. Plus it would make her look good to town as she runs to be the next Mayor. The only problem Anna has is the arrival of Iain Connors claiming he’s the one in charge.

Iain, the strong, handsome and silent type, is unsettled after his stint in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Iain readily agrees to travel to the States to take charge of the Highland Games. He’s led men into battle, planning this event can’t be any more trouble and maybe his time there will help him figure out his future. Working with control-freak Anna is a definite challenge; not only are they attracted to each other, their chemistry is off the charts. One thing is for sure, Highland, Georgia will never be the same after Iain, wearing his kilts, came to town.  

 Ms. Trentham wrote a wonderfully funny and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, hot Highlanders, and other engaging characters giving Anna and Iain a chance for happiness and love. I highly recommend A Highlander in a Pickup to other readers and I for one am hoping there is another book in this series.
