Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .
Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?


Cassie Crow is a pop-culture reporter but has bigger aspirations than her job on a television talk show. She is focused on becoming a journalist and wants to be taken more seriously. For now, she is on vacation with a few friends and they are now in Scotland. When she sees a Highlander in a kilt, Cassie immediately has a bunch of ideas as to what she'd like to do with him,

Logan Reid has a pretty interesting career that is based mainly on hijinks, but mostly on charm. He meets the delectable American, Cassie, and quickly discovers that one night of fun is hardly enough. When she returns to America after her trip, Logan finds a good excuse to follow her.

This was a cute little story. Cassie and Logan each had dreams, and a future together seemed hardly impossible. Watching them travel down this road made for enjoyable reading. Meanwhile, Cassie's friends were a hoot and no doubt will each have a role in future stories. 

This debut novel by Melonie Johnson was quite a wonderful read that was remarkably well-done. I look forward to going further in this delectable series, and will soon be reading Smitten by the Brit, which will be out soon, as well as Once Upon a Bad Boy, which will be released in June.

Many thanks to St. Martin's Press and to NetGalley for this ARC to be reviewed in exchange for my honest opinion.


While on a visit to DramaMama land you’re likely to find tales of writing woe, craft and party ideas (and crafty party ideas), an occasional recipe, links to other wonderful and wacky websites, home fix-it projects, tales of home ownership agony (aka Appliance Hell), and lots and lots of stuff about the drama of being a mama.

Overall, this site is  a random collection of random stuff about my life – eventually it may turn into something more cohesive…but in order for that to happen, my life needs to become more cohesive, so you may be in for a long wait. Enjoy the ride!
