    Heartless action, treachery or simply no love?

    Arabel, the laird’s daughter, is madly in love with Garrick, a stable hand. They plan to elope in order to be together. Arabel does it not only for love, but to avoid a loveless marriage to another nobleman as well and to secure her future with the man she loves. Both are Scots to the bones. Arabel is wild, passionate, fiery and speaks her mind. That spirit is what Garrick likes besides her flaming tresses. But when they see each other on that evening, Arabel denies him and he is heartbroken.She wants to explain herself but can’t. All he knows is that her family always comes first. Driven away, Garrick shapes a life for himself. Ten years later they meet. Both received an inheritance together, sharing the Rowland estate, managing it together. Arabels fiancé is not too pleased with the inheritance conditions but he wants the estate. While Arabel is shocked to learn that her old love is now the Earl of Townsend, a British nobleman and Garick is still drawn to the woman who broke his heart. But he has a plan, to bring down the family that destroyed his very soul and heart. You have two strong-willed independent and hurt characters that still harbor feelings and passion for each other but are mature enough to suppress them and cling to their beliefs. You can imagine that sparks are flying between those two. You have witty dialogues between a sassy grown woman and a strong hurt man. Absolutely great characters that you will like. The story is developing great and revealing some well-hidden secrets. A very capturing book that does not leave you wanting. In order to have a future they would have to let go of the past. But can they do that? And what is with the other hindrances? The only point that I had was that his change of heart came too fast for my liking. It had to come but it was not clear enough to me how it came, because he struggled so hard to keep it hidden (Apologies, I can’t be more specific or I would ruin the book). But it did not diminish the chemistry of the couple nor the story, that was a purely personal impression and it will most likely not be the same for everyone else. When you like strong characters that are smart, have backbone and fight for their beliefs and also like Scotland, this is your book.

    Second Chance at Love

    Second Chances can happen and in this heartwarming novella, the past catches up with the future. Arabel Rowland the Laird's daughter is in love with Garrick McGuinness, the son of a blacksmith. They plan to elope but Arabel feels she cannot leave her family because her brother is in trouble. Ten years later they are thrown together again and each has inherited one half of Castle Highburn, the estate of Arabel's uncle. Garrick had once saved her uncle's life and this was his way of repaying him. As you can imagine after not seeing each other for all those years and Garrick now holding the title of Earl of Townsend it was almost an explosive situation. At least in emotions of which neither had forgotten their love for each other. But there had been a lot of resentment on Garrick's part that Arabel had chosen her family over him and he wanted revenge. This story gripped me from the beginning and showed how misunderstandings, betrayal and strong love can change the course of a life. But there is always hope and this is a story not to be missed. Well done Anna Harrington! If I were not a fan before ( which I was!), I would be now!!

    Loved it

    A Match Made in Heather by Anna Harrington is the story of Garrick and Arabel. Garrick once worked for Arabel's family about 10 years ago. Garrick and Arabel fell in love and had planned to runaway together and marry. But on the night they were to elope, Arabel came to him to say that her brother had gotten into series trouble and she could not leave yet. Arabel asked that he wait with her as her family fixed this latest problem the brother had caused. But Garrick has excepted a new job that starts in three days and doesn't understand her choosing her family over him. They argue and she leaves but not before he is attacked and warned to stay away from her. Now 10 years later they meet again but this time Garrick isn't the poor stable boy and Arabel has just agreed to marry another.

    Wonderful novella!

    Anna Harrington’ A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER is simply fabulous. Garrick McGuiness and Arabel Rowland were madly in love, they had planned to elope, but family matters intruded; Garrick left, dejected, and Arabel was heartbroken. Ten years later, they are reunited under peculiar circumstances. They had not parted amicably, and time has not healed their wounds. A MATCH MADE IN HEATHER is a very moving story, and so meticulously crafted that it felt more like a condensed novel than a novella, still nothing was rushed. The characters are fully fleshed out, no detail is neglected, and we get the whole story behind the sorry mess which caused Garrick and Arabel’s grief. Ms. Harrington conveys Scottish pride as I have seldom seen, and there is a wonderful and completely unexpected moment when we feel the ice begin to melt between Garrick and Arabel; it was charming and felt completely genuine. This is a very beautifully written, engrossing grand love story that held me captive throughout. Anna Harrington demonstrates that it’s not the number of pages that really matter in the end, but what they comprise. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Lovely romantic weekend read!

    I just adored this story. Your heart breaks with the love that is torn from them and then all you can do after is cheer for them to find their happy ever after! Very well written for a novella story. This had enough detail, action and lovable characters to make it a page turner. The romance between Garrick and Arabel was full of chemistry and sparks! The snark in Garrick fit his position and part well – it made the story come alive. I loved the setting and story line of a beautiful crumbling castle and the tension that put on both of them. Perfect weekend read!! I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
