“A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER is the perfect sweet second chance romance.”
~ Under the Covers

And so we go to Scotland and all the beauty and magic that setting usually delivers.  I’ve read a couple of books by Anna Harrington this year, she was one of those great author discoveries I had in 2017.  I wasn’t sure how to feel about reading a standalone from her though because I tend to do better with historical romance series.  But then the premise of this is bound to draw you in and the writing will keep you turning the pages.

Arabel was the laird’s daughter and Garrick the stable boy.  They loved each other and were supposed to elope until Arabel chose to stay with her family during a trying time and Garrick was given no choice but to disappear from her life.  Neither one of them knows the true story about what happened to the other that night.  Now ten years later, they’re set to inherit a family home … together.  And to claim that inheritance they must live together in it for a period of time.

A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER is the perfect sweet second chance romance.  I’m not usually one for novellas but this one delivered everything that I needed to see to believe in their HEA.  I was rooting for them and wanted to dive in and uncover those secrets that kept them apart.  And, yes, ok, I wanted to throttle them for the lack of communication skills but I mostly overlooked that because it didn’t cross over into annoying territory.

If you haven’t read this author before, this is a great little standalone taste perfect for the winter months.

About Anna Harrington

I fell in love with historical romances and all things Regency—and especially all those dashing Regency heroes—while living in England, where I spent most of my time studying the Romantic poets, reading Jane Austen, and getting lost all over the English countryside.

When I read my first Regency romance in 2012, I was hooked and longed to create my own independent and spirited heroines and dashing heroes. The best part of writing historical romances is falling into history—to live in the world of Regency England through my characters, with dazzling balls, beautiful dresses, and gorgeous houses that I would otherwise never be able to experience. I love the period’s rich history and find that all those rules of etiquette and propriety can be worked to the heroine’s advantage…if she’s daring enough to seize her dreams.

In addition to earning my degrees in the U.S., I have studied theatre in London, Mexican history in Guadalajara, and Spanish in Ecuador. I am an avid traveler and have enjoyed visiting schools and volunteering with children's organizations in Peru, Ecuador, Thailand, and Mexico, and I have amassed thousands of photos I unleash on unsuspecting friends who dare to ask about my travels.

I love to be outdoors! I've been hiking in Alaska, the Andes, and the Alps, including one week spent dangling off the via ferrata in the Italian Dolomites, and I love whitewater rafting (when I don't fall in!). I earned my pilot’s license at Chicago Midway (To all the controllers in Chicago Center—I greatly apologize for every problem I caused for you and Southwest Airlines), and it is my dream to one-day fly in a hot-air balloon over Africa.

I adore all things chocolate, shamelessly dive into ice cream of any flavor, and guzzle Kona coffee by the gallon. A Doctor Who fanatic (everyone says my house is bigger on the inside), I am a terrible cook who hopes to one day use my oven for something other than shoe storage. When I'm not writing, I like to spend my time trying not to kill the innocent rose bushes in my garden.

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
