+++This is a New Adult Romance, intended for readers over 18. It contains scenes for mature readers.+++

Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster: her widowed mother just married a long-time family friend. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone’s life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan’s looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.

But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.

Sam Reynolds doesn’t need excitement, and he doesn’t want romance. Fun is out of the question. He’s been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.

When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won’t be easy. Sam’s tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change. . .maybe more than he can handle.

Nobody ever said love was simple.

Lake of Destiny: A Scottish Legends Romance (Celtic Legends Collection) by Martina Boone

Helping her aunt organize a festival in the Scottish Highlands where Rob Roy MacGregor once lived seems like the perfect escape from Anna Cameron’s broken engagement. But to succeed in aiding the cash-starved community, she’ll have to wrangle kilt-wearing Highlanders, dangerous sheep, and the reclusive film star who refuses to open his property to the public for the ancient tradition of Sighting.     To locals, the glen has always been known as a thin place, one where the veil between worlds peels back on Beltane morning to reflect the face of a person’s true love in the loch. The tradition could draw tourists by the busload–but that’s exactly what Connal MacGregor doesn’t want when he’s desperate to keep himself and his daughter out of the public eye.     Struggling to mediate between Connal and the needs of the village, Anna finds herself falling in love with all of it: Connal and his disfigured daughter, the villagers, and the magical glen. But opening the Sighting to strangers reveals generations of secrets and exposes deep scars in both Anna and Connal. Confronting those wounds could finally set them free to love–or endanger their every chance of happiness.     Perfect for fans of Diana Gabaldon’s historical Scottish romances, Nora Roberts’ trilogies, Susanna Kearsley’s gothic romantic suspense, and the heartwarming women’s fiction of Susan Wiggs, Sarah Addison Allen, Susan Mallery, Lauren K. Denton, and Inglath Cooper.       ★★★★★  PRAISE FOR LAKE OF DESTINY ★★★★★Delightful, charming, and heartwarming! — New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins   I loved this!
