It takes a real man to wear a kilt. And a real woman to charm him out of it.
Games of Love, Book 1 It might be modern times, but Kate Simmons isn’t willing to live a life without at least the illusion of the perfect English romance. A proud member of the Jane Austen Regency Re-Enactment Society, Kate fulfills her passion for courtliness and high-waisted gowns in the company of a few women who share her love of all things heaving.
Then she encounters Julian Wallace, a professional Highland Games athlete who could have stepped right off the covers of her favorite novels. He’s everything brooding, masculine, and, well, heaving. The perfect example of a man who knows just how to wear his high sense of honor—and his kilt.
Confronted with a beautiful woman with a tongue as sharp as his sgian dubh, Julian and his band of merry men aren’t about to simply step aside and let Kate and her gaggle of tea-sippers use his land for their annual convention. Never mind that “his land” is a state park—Julian was here first, and he never backs down from a challenge.Unless that challenge is a woman unafraid to fight for what she wants...and whose wants are suddenly the only thing he can think about. Warning: The historical re-enactments in this story contain very little actual history. Battle chess and ninja stars may apply.

Get to the point mini review:
When they had private moments together where they opened up to each other I swooned – all other times I wanted to smack them and especially Kate’s best friend Jada – who was just pushy regarding Kate’s personality and life choices.
I did enjoy Morgan’s Christmas novella, In the Clear & that awesome hero, so I will be checking out The Derby Girl – a book highly recommended by several trusted bloggers. This one just wasn’t for me.
