American lass seeks brawny Scot... As if being newly single isn’t brutal enough, Sloane Chatfield's friends are getting obnoxious about setting her up. When Sloane insists she's waiting for a certain sexy fictional Highlander to come along, her friends surprise her with a trip to Scotland to find her a new boyfriend. She’d rather have a root canal. But if she can find a Highland hunk to “break her heart” before her friends arrive… In a remote Highland village, Galen Buchanan is struggling to keep the family pub afloat. Everything is falling apart, he’s running out of money, and now there's an opinionated American lass parked at his best table, driving him mad. But then Sloane asks Galen to be her pretend Highland boyfriend...and offers him enough money to save the pub. It’s only for a few days, he figures. What's the worst that could happen?

Imagine you are a wealthy young woman who has been dumped by her fiancée for being “cold” after the dress was already bought. Your girlfriends are throwing men at you to “get back on the horse” and you want them to stop. What do you do?
If you are Sloan Cathright, you go on a holiday to the remotest part of the Scottish Highlands you can find and lie to your friends and rope the local pub owner, Galen, into your crazy plan when your friends decide to come earlier than expected.
This was a cute, well written story that was definitely good for a chuckle. Both Sloan and Galen were hard to relate to initially and they transitioned to being a relaxed couple you were rooting for. There seemed to be a lot going on for the length of the book, almost too much. There were several places where the story line could have been better developed.
