A scarred war journalist seeking absolution. The survivor of Scotland’s most notorious serial killer, desperate to keep her identity a secret. Will they find love, or will they be each other’s destruction?

Sunny Marlow has built a new life for herself in a quaint Scottish Highland village. She’s moved on from being the sole survivor of a serial killer but knows her happiness relies on her former identity staying a secret. But now she’s forced to risk everything in order to save her headstrong foster-brother from disaster when he signs up to fight in an illegal boxing match. At the match, her worst fears come true when a man who radiates danger tries to talk to her. She escapes back to the Highlands, but he haunts her dreams for days.

Seth Legion recognizes Sunny the minute he sees her. He’s grieving over the death of a photographer friend who forced Sunny into hiding all those years ago and immediately knows this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to right a life-altering wrong. He tracks Sunny to the Scottish Highlands under the pretense of writing a story about her brother, intending to tell her the truth the minute he can. But he doesn’t count on an accommodation mix-up and a fierce mutual attraction getting in the way.

Now the chemistry between them is out of control, and Sunny is wondering if she hasn’t hidden herself away for too long. While Seth soon realizes that what he feels for Sunny has become more than his mission. When Seth’s true intentions come to light, will they find love, or will they be each other’s destruction?

About the author

Evie Snow is the pen name for a globe-trotting writing team working towards their very own Happily Ever After:

Best-selling author Georgina (George) Penney does the actual writing and reads far too many books. In past lives, she got herself a communications degree, studied hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, and was well on the way to a contemporary history PhD when moving to Saudi Arabia re-introduced her to a teenage love of romance novels.

Her husband, Tony (AKA The Kraken) helps out with plot wrangling and is in charge of caffeine distribution. In previous lives, Tony worked all over the world as a petroleum engineer. He found the oil industry to be far stranger than fiction.

Together, George and Tony have lived in a bunch of countries including Australia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Brunei Darussalam, and Scotland. In the past, they’ve stayed in a Yurt in the Scottish Highlands, scoured desert souks for souvenirs, swam in the Aegean sea, snoozed on beaches in Thailand and fraternized with orangutans in the Bornean jungle. And wherever they go, they’re always on the lookout for wonderful local food and to have a chat with anyone who has a few free hours to spare.

When not writing warm and funny contemporary romance together, George and Tony can currently be found roaming random Australian country towns, continuing in their never-ending quest for the perfect scone.

A Scottish millionaire hiding a dark past. A chatty Texan looking for love. Sparks fly when southern hospitality goes awry…

Ian Buchanan has spent a lifetime distancing himself from a brutal childhood, forced to fight in bare-knuckle boxing matches on freezing Scottish Highland moors… He has since gained money, prestige and the respect of his peers, but now all that’s at risk. He’s been framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Now he’s seeking haven in a charming cabin in Texas Hill Country while he devises a plan to clear his name. But what Ian hasn’t counted on is his curvy, chatty Texan hostess, Sophie Grey, a woman who soon has him thinking there may be more pleasurable ways to spend his time in exile.

Sophie Grey loves her job managing holiday cabins on Lonely Creek Ranch. Not only does it give her an opportunity to get to know the father she was taken away from as a child. It’s the perfect occupation for a nervous chatterer. Normally people enjoy her bubbly personality, but Ian Buchanan is unlike anyone she’s ever met. He’s big, he’s brooding and he reminds her of a hero from a Jane Austin novel. Before she knows it, she’s offering to show him the sights, and after a rocky start, Ian accepts.

But soon complications from Ian’s life have become too urgent to ignore, and a risqué encounter between them leads to a crisis that not only threatens Sophie’s business but the life she’s so carefully built at Lonely Creek Ranch. Can Ian and Sophie weather the storm to start a relationship as big as Texas itself, or will the secrets they’re keeping from each other tear them apart?
