A Highlander Walks into a Bar

Laura Trentham

The annual Highland Games festival is only three weeks away, and just like every year, Isabel Buchanan will be hosting the festival with her mother on the family estate, Stonehaven. In Highland, Georgia, Alasdair Blackmoor feels like he’s stepped into another world. But it’s the fiery, funny Isabel who fascinates him. As the festival approaches, he carves himself a place in Highland, but it’s the woman at the center of it that feels like home.
