When her father is injured in an accident, Edinburgh engineer Pippa McDonnell comes home to Gandiegow to take over the family business, the North Sea Valve Company. Now she's working overtime trying to fix NSV's finances and find the cash to get her father proper medical care. One possibility is to accept a partnership with MTech, an American firm desperate to get their hands on her da's innovative valve design.
He was against bringing in outsiders, but Pippa is desperate enough to at least listen to MTech's charming representative Max McKinley. As Christmas approaches and with the help of Gandiegow's meddling quilters, Pippa and Max slowly find themselves attracted to each other. Max seems honorable, but is he there to steal the valve design...or Pippa's heart?

I love a good romance story especially those that lay in other countries. I love them because you get a flair for the other countries way of life, their attitudes their personalities, the beauty of their country, the way it smells and feels, but I do not like stories with sensuality written into them to me it is distracting and takes away from the plot of the story. Also it just doesn't feel real to me, it feels like sexual fantasy story that is being played out and to me that is not real life. I know that sensual fiction is a genre of reading style and writing style, but I wish I can find those sorts of romance stories that don't include sensuality. The way patients Griffin writes and intertwines the sexuality into her storyline it feels forced ,it feels faked, it feels unnatural. I love how she (patients) includes quilting and the quilting community into her writing it feels at home it feels like a happy society and something beautiful comes out of it. I know many of you read these books for the sensuality part and so I can recommend this book to you, but as for me if you would take the sensuality out I would enjoy the book a lot more and perhaps would go on to read other novels in the kilts and quilts series. .
