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. . .

When her best friend is unable to attend to the planning of the annual Highland Festival, Anna is happy to pick up the reigns as it will show the town that she has the right skill set for her future plans. She is determined that it will be a success and has very definite ideas of what needs to be done and doesn’t need help from anyone including the sexy Scot her friend has sent to help.
After leaving the Army Iain isn’t sure what the future holds for him despite the plan that his parents expect him to follow. Having the opportunity to help out at the Festival couldn’t have come at a better time and will give him the physical and emotional distance he needs but he never expected to be attracted to the bossy and stubborn woman who thinks she is his employee.
At times Anna’s personality could be hard to take but there is no denying it comes from a good place while Iain is very understanding and manages to help her especially at times when she can’t help herself. The romance between them is fun and flirty and they balance each other to perfection.
