Sunny Marlow loves her life. After surviving a traumatic and highly publicized kidnapping as a teen, she’s embraced a new name and career as a florist in a tiny Scottish Highland village, where her only worries are that her sex-toy-selling foster sister will try to run another “Get a Free Vibrator with Every Bouquet” special, and that her childhood friend Jackson will keep blaming himself for what happened to her all those years ago.
However, all that’s threatened when battle-scarred war journalist Seth Legion arrives in town claiming to be working on a piece starring her irrepressible foster brother. Sunny knows that getting involved with a journalist threatens her safe world—not to mention stirring up her adoptive family’s protective streak—but she can’t help but feel the attraction, sensing Seth’s past holds secrets as deep as hers.
What Sunny doesn’t know is that Seth has come to Scotland for her, having seen the chance to make up for a friend’s lapse in judgement regarding Sunny’s case all those years ago. However, Seth never counted on the chemistry between them—or the fact that his presence in the Highlands could be putting her life in jeopardy . . .
About the author
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.
