THE GOOD CHASE

Highland Games Book 2

"Best of 2014!" - Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews & The Book Pushers

Gleann, New Hampshire's annual highland games always deliver the best of Scottish culture—rowdiness, rugby, whiskey, and unexpected romance...

Even though Shea Montgomery's swanky bar and distinguished palate have made her a highly regarded whiskey connoisseur, she's happiest bringing her favorite spirit to various highland games around New England. Her demanding ex made her wary of men obsessed with money and status, and she's now more comfortable in the country than in the city. Still, when a gorgeous rugby player straight from Wall Street barrels into her whiskey tent, she's tempted to change her mind...

J.P. Byrne went from poor beginnings to international high roller by using his charisma and wit, and holding fast to his dreams. A strong, independent woman like Shea is exactly what he's looking for, only he has no idea how to prove he's more than his three-piece suits—especially when he's spent years doing just the opposite.

But as Shea and Byrne battle old demons, they discover together that the best remedy for past pain is a good, stiff shot of present pleasure...

Praise for The Good Chase

"...a sensual, refreshingly unique story that will stir readers' hearts and awaken a new appreciation for fine whisky. [The] characters' chemistry is rare and scorching. Their ability to communicate honestly makes their relationship something truly special. Martine's sense of place is, as always, terrific, and her descriptions of kilt-clad sportsmen can't help but keep readers riveted. Though fans will need little urging, new readers should add this book, and this series, to their shelves quickly." 
   —RT Book Reviews Magazine, 4 1/2 stars

"Martine expertly sets the stage with all the elements of romance."
