Real life is no place for fairy tales…

Kristin Hart has romantic notions of Scotland. Yet she never expects to find a real-life Scotsman in her Vermont hometown! Despite her instant connection with him, Malcolm MacDowell isn't the Prince Charming she thought. Because no prince would shut down her factory—the one that means everything to her town.

Really, she has no choice.

Good book. Malcolm has come to Vermont under an assumed name to work out the details for the purchase of the factory where Kristin works. He isn't able to tell her why he is there but spends time with her as she shows him the factory. He also meets her family when he is stranded while waiting for his driver. There is something about Kristin that draws him, but he feels very guilty about what is going to happen to her factory.

I really liked both Kristin and Malcolm though each certainly had issu
I won this book in a GoodReads giveaway and I am so glad I did. What is not to like -- Scottish castles, a pretty & spunky woman, a handsome and rich Sottish man and a romantic love story. Actually, there was one thing I didn't like and that was the sex scenes. They were not nearly as graphic as other writers make them but still too much for me and not necessary to the story and the enjoyment of it.

Other than that, the reader is treated to fun characters, great descriptions of Scotland and a
Nice story. Part travelog of Scotland, part "Save the 'ranch'" story (with a factory playing the part of the ranch). The hero & heroine both had some past angst but it didn't overwhelm the plot. Just a Good Read.
Good Romance with men with accents and far away travels! Liked it quite a bit!
I received this book as a free giveaway. It came with a personalized note and autographed copy from the author. The characters, Kristin and Malcolm ("Geroge"). Kristin will travel great lengths, across country, to save her town and company. Malcolm helps her realize her great potential and romance blossoms. Great read till the very end.

"Malcolm shows real emotional depth in caring for both Kristin's and his family's feelings, as does Kristin in her determination to save her friends' jobs. Charming, yet flawed characters make this book a keeper". (RT Book Reviews, rated 4 stars)
Sigh.... Everyone woman should have a Malcom dropped on her doorstep. A wonderfully romantic hero and a fun read. Loved it.

Cathryn Parry’s first piece of romantic writing was a love letter she wrote to the boy who sat next to her in first grade. By the next Christmas, she was asking for a typewriter to organize her growing collection of adventure stories inspired by Nancy Drew.

But it wasn’t until Cathryn was an engineer working a less-than-inspiring job in a ball bearings factory that she dared to write her first nove
