Here With Me by Samantha Young is now live!
Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner –ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair–and it’s poised on the edge of a dark scandal.
After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she’s long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she’s not yet ready to give up on her father.
Determined to ensure Mac’s safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path.
While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future … if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn’t do the job first.

My ARC Review:
What an epic start to a brand new series for Samantha, I was blown away with this one, totally captivated from start to finish, and intense enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense that had me on the edge of my seat with the story line, set mainly in the Highlands of Scotland, the glorious and breathtaking descriptions had me transported there and I truly loved it!!
Robyn was a police officer in Boston until she nearly died in the line of duty. She has re-evaluated her life and wanted to take up her hobby of photography and turn it into something more. She also wanted to meet up with her father and find out why he left her.
Ardnoch Estate in the Highlands is an exclusive resort for the rich and famous, a place where they can go about their life as normal as possible without being bothered by the press, and is run by ex-Hollywood superstar Lachlan Adair. Mac is his head of security and his friend, and Mac also happens to be Robyn’s father.
Robyn turns up at the Estate unannounced to see her father, who was only 17 when she was born. For Robyn and Lachlan it’s hate at first sight – she doesn’t like him as her father went working for him as protection when he worked in Hollywood, he doesn’t like her as he doesn’t want her upsetting his best friend Mac who he is very protective of. There is also the matter of a little stalker problem at the Estate, someone is leaving some very nasty messages for Lachlan, and when Robyn finds out her father is in danger due to it she is determined to hang around and help catch the culprit.
The push and pull between Lachlan and Robyn is just awesome, you can literally feel the tension between them. Neither like each other but cannot explain the pull between them, each getting under the other’s skin. It’s an intense slow burn between them, watching them try and fight off their attraction for each other, until their passion explodes!
There are plenty of side characters in this that are equally entertaining and make the read all that more enjoyable as you learn about them. Mac and Robyn have some issues to thrash out, she has a lot to learn about her relationship with her father and what happened for him to leave! Lachlan has other siblings and each have their own story.
All this is playing out while the stalker issue is still unfolding, this really had me on the edge of my seat, it gets quite intense as it all unfolds and the puzzle pieces fall into place. This kept me guessing for the ‘whodunnit’ right up until the end, I was shocked and surprised to say the least, but it all fitted together perfectly!!
This was a great read, quite long really, but very passionate and intense, I loved the setting and the banter between the characters, the family drama coupled with some hot steamy scenes, and the breathtaking suspense….. what more could you ask for!!! Brilliant from start to finish, I can’t wait to read more from this new series.
