Book 1, Stewart Sisters Trilogy

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Following her wildly popular Callahan Brothers trilogy, national bestselling author JoAnn Ross begins the sparkling Stewart Sisters trilogy with this fun, sexy riff on the classic movie To Catch a Thief -- with a Scottish twist!
Lily Stewart is busy planning the summer Highland Games at her family's Great Smoky Mountain resort. So the last thing she needs is some arrogant, demanding Scotsman -- no matter how sexy -- arriving to film the annual festival. It's bad enough that he's constantly interrupting her days -- but even worse that he's tempting her to rev up her nights with a Highland fling.
Filmmaker Ian MacDougall MacKenzie is actually there to steal back the Brooch of Lorn, which has gone back and forth between the Stewarts and the MacDougalls ever since it was ripped from Robert the Bruce's tartan in 1306. But when Ian realizes Lily has stolen his heart, he wonders whether love can prevail once she discovers he's been deceiving her all along....

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 15, 2003 – Veteran romance author Ross follows up her Callahan Brothers trilogy (River Road, etc.) with this fun but fitful offering, the first in a new series based on a trio of Scottish-American sisters. The story starts when ornery Scotsman Duncan MacDougall sends his grandson, Ian, to America to reclaim the Brooch of Lorn, a historic jewel that the feuding Stewart and MacDougall clans have been stealing from each other for centuries. Genius filmmaker Ian masks this surreptitious mission by pretending he's making a film about the annual Highland Games that the Stewart family sponsors in their small Tennessee community. Then he meets and falls in love with art gallery owner Lily Stewart—the same woman who, Duncan says, stole the brooch from him months earlier. Though Ian quickly deduces Lily is innocent, he can't figure out how to tell her the truth about his motives. Lily herself struggles to clean up her family's many messes while fearing that Ian will leave town once the film is done. It's never clear why otherwise sane adults like Ian or Lily give in so easily to their families' preposterous agendas, and the background information that forms the trilogy's foundation is often inserted at awkward moments. However, the story's robust momentum and lively characters make this a fun, energetic read.
