From Edinburgh’s enchanted cobbled streets to its misty hills, a timeless romance blooms.

Burned out in grad school, Olivia Boyd jumps at the chance to spend a semester studying abroad in Edinburgh. There she discovers a city alive with music, history, and charm—not to mention a brooding barkeep who ignites her interest.

Max Cameron was forced to give up his dreams of academia long ago in order to run the family’s generations-old pub, The Red Rose. His structured world is upended by the arrival of an intriguing American woman.

As Olivia and Max explore Edinburgh’s winding lanes and lively music scene, she and Max make the mistake of letting their guard down. But with Olivia’s semester abroad ending soon, she and Max must face their inevitable parting.

"Olivia Boyd goes to Edinburgh ostensibly to finish her dissertation on Scottish folk music, but the journey is really about breaking free of distractions and finding herself again. However, roguish pub owner Max Cameron is the definition of distracting. He embeds himself in her heart as deeply as the melodies she loves. But she has to return to New York at the end of the semester. Will their romance end on a sweet note or a sour one?"

The Red Rose has a little something to do with Scottish folk songs, so I’ve made a writing playlist. I make one for every book I write, but since this is directly related to the story, I thought I’d share. For all you ethnomusicologists out there, yes, I know I’ve mixed in some Irish music, but, there’s a lot of overlap between the two. So if I like it, I included it. If you like what you hear, support the artists by buying their music.
