Just when you think you're lost, you might end up falling in love.
Sam Farouk is having a bad year. Things went down the drain ever since she found her boyfriend cheating on her at the Golden Globes. An unfortunate turn of events forces her to trade sunny Los Angeles with the rainy, chilly highlands of Scotland. She has the chance to work as one of the makeup artists on a new TV series based on a fantasy saga everyone is bananas about, but she can’t help feeling lost and a little bit homesick. Until she starts falling for Hugh MacLeod, the actor set to impersonate the titular role of Abarath, dragon slayer and part-time Casanova.
Hugh MacLeod is ready for his big break. After more than a decade taking every possible acting job just to stay afloat, he can finally show his range in a series to be proud of. Hugh’s commitment to his career comes before anything else, and that’s part of the reason why he hasn’t had a serious relationship in a while. But the more he’s around Sam, the more he knows he’s in deep, deep trouble. How is he supposed not to fall for the sexy, mysterious brunette who works all over him every single day? Every touch, every look is torture.
Getting lost in each other might be wrong, but it could end up being just what they need.
Beautiful and well deserved 5 stars.
What a truly beautifully written book. The author put so much description into the story that you truly could get ‘Lost in Scotland’ I loved that this book told a story of love and feelings and avoided any real major drama; it truly didn’t need it. The story line and amazing characters were more than enough to capture and hold the reader’s attention.
Sam was such a strong understated character, she was beautiful both inside and out and selfless in her actions to make sure Hugh had his much deserved chance at stardom. Hugh, well of course he was swoon worthy, strong and handsome; kind and caring; passionate and understanding, he really was the full package. This couple really were a joy to get to know and from the minute they met, I was definitely on their side.
This book had all the feels, the initial hurt and betrayal poor Sam had to endure; then the lust, love and devastation was all palpable, you felt the emotion rather than just read it. I also loved the additional characters and the friendships and relationships that developed; it really made the story more true to life.
Overall this was a fantastic read and one I would recommend in a heartbeat. This book was the first I have read from author Hilaria Alexander, and I will certainly be looking for more of her work.
