I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Fans of Lost in Scotland will love revisiting the heather-covered highlands as Sam and Hugh try to make their happily-ever-after a reality in this wedding novella!


Ladies, Hugh MacLeod is off the market! We caught up with the sexy hunk from Abarath and his fiancée, makeup artist Sam Farouk at an event in Edinburgh. The pair met last year while working together on season one. The Scottish actor looked handsome in a tailored dark grey suit, while the raven-haired beauty at his side turned heads in a golden lamé gown which channeled the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress of the same color. Ms. Farouk played coy when asked about the engagement, only revealing that the ring belonged to Hugh’s grandmother. With a dreamy look to her groom-to-be, Ms. Farouk confessed his proposal was “fairytale worthy." MacLeod charmingly deflected each one of our questions about season two of Abarath, saying he would get in trouble if he told us anything. When we asked if a date had been set yet, the engaged couple looked at each other for a brief second. Soon, they replied in unison in a way that turned us into mush. Ms. Farouk added that it will all depend on Hugh’s schedule and his commitment with the show.

We wish the very best to the groom and the bride-to-be and we hope to bring you more news about their upcoming nuptials!

Earlier this year I’ve read Lost in Scotland, and I loved Sam and Hugh, and their story. However, the ending left me a bit unsatisfied. It’s not that I didn’t liked it, but I wanted a bit more for this couple. A Scottish Wedding is the continuation of Hugh and Sam’s story, and it has the perfect ending. I love it.

“That’s right, Sam. Hold fast,” he said with a grin. “We’re in it for the long run.”

Sam and Hugh are together and in love. Their relationship is still fairly new, but both know it’s real and forever. This doesn’t mean they’re without struggles, but is has nothing with their relationship. Sam has grown so much, she fully trusts Hugh, even with the temptations that comes with their field of work. Hugh is still the swoon-worthy guy from the previous book; hard-working and fully committed to Sam.

“Phase three: contact.” “Such a nerd,” I whispered in his ear, biting his earlobe gently. “Nerd, aye?” he teased, filling me with one thrust. I gasped. “Yes,”

I love A Scottish Wedding. It’s so much more than just the (obvious) wedding of Sam and Hugh. Besides them, we also see their family and friends again, and see some of the things they’re going through. I sure hope some of the family members will get their own book, I need to know more about them. I felt sorry for Hugh from time to time, being an actor comes with a price, but he knows it’s part of his job. Sam is the loving fiancé who has her own job as well, but she’s supportive of Hugh, and what he has to do. I love them as a couple, they are just right for each other.

“There was absolutely no need to be nervous. We were here because she was my happiness. She was my present, my future, my entire world.”

I love Sam and Hugh, and the conclusion to their story. I give A Scottish Wedding 5 stars.
