Tour Excerpt & Giveaway: What Happens in Scotland & Summer is for Lovers by Jennifer McQuiston


WHAT HAPPENS IN SCOTLAND (Released Feb 26th, 2013)

She woke up married… And then she ran.

When recent widow Georgette Thorold wakes up in a Scottish inn with a wedding ring on her finger and lacking all memory of how she came to be there, she does what any well-bred lady with a modicum of sense and a distrust of marriage would do: she panics, clocks the wickedly handsome stranger in her bed over the head with a chamber pot, and runs.

James McKenzie, Esquire has either spent the evening protecting a very na├»ve, and—dare he say it—very drunk young lady from the advances of every disreputable character in the town of Moraig, or he has gone and married a pretty, scheming thief. Not that his own head is entirely clear on the matter, but when the woman in question repays his kindness with a knock on the head, the bill for her room, and the theft of his purse, an embarrassed James is determined to track her down and show her she picked the wrong solicitor to swindle.

As Georgette sets out to discover exactly what happened during her forgotten night, she uncovers a man that seems far more a hero than a rake. But when they finally meet, instead of sweeping her into his arms and kissing her senseless, he serves her with a summons, claiming she is a thief. Now the fight is on, and the only question is was it a night worth remembering? Or a mistake they would both rather forget?

SUMMER IS FOR LOVERS (Released Sept 24th, 2013)

David Cameron has been tricked. After bringing his supposedly ailing mother to Brighton to take the waters, he’s found himself bombarded with young ladies of marriageable age, while his mother has made a marked improvement. Seeking respite from the hordes, he retreats to a beach he hasn’t seen in years--and finds a woman he’s never quite been able to forget.

Caroline Tolbertson just wants to be left alone. But her mother is determined to see her married off, no matter Caroline’s protests--or her embarassing lack of suitors. Seeing David Cameron, her childhood crush, again sets her heart racing, but she’s older and wiser now. And no, that wasn’t her heart sinking when David suggested a faux courtship instead of the real thing.

But Caroline has never been very good at following the rules, and the fake attraction soon grows into the real thing. Now Caroline has more scandalous pursuits in mind and David is finding it very hard to say no to his gorgeous friend. Will giving in to temptation send them both down a path they each claim to abhor--straight to the altar?

Excerpt from Summer is for Lovers:

He bent down on one knee, intending to beg for her hand.

Only, he neglected to consider his injuries in this hastily constructed plan to win her favor. The knee he chose to kneel on was on the leg the black mare had kicked earlier in the day. His weight refused to stay balanced in face of the lightning-crack jolt of pain that shot through him as his knee hit the ground. He pitched over, the air whooshing from his lungs, coming to rest flat on his back staring up at the orange-tinged sky.

Georgette dropped to the ground beside him in an instant, her face drawn in worried creases. The tall hedge rows cast her in deep shadows and for a moment he felt as if the air had been sucked clean from his chest. She had looked much the same way last night, leaning over him in their room at the Gander…just before she had put that tempting mouth on him.

Only then she had been wearing far less clothing.

She framed his face with her hands, and her hair fell, soft and fragrant, to tease at his nose. She pushed it back with an impatient hand. “Are you all right? Should I fetch someone from the house?”

He answered with a breathless nod.

“I should fetch someone?”

He shook his head this time, his gaze centering on the lush lower lip she was worrying with her teeth.

Her eyes, which had been wide with concern, narrowed suspiciously. “Is this some trick to get me to kiss you again”
