"Fine love at first sight contemporary romance"

Flying in from Seattle to London and then training to Manchester, mystery author Kathie Williams is the only American invited to participate in Murder in Manchester. Jet lag and tiredness leaves her asleep in the lobby drooling on her outfit. At the convention she meets Scottish sheep rancher Iain MacLaren, whose two adult sons, knowing he loves mystery novels, paid his admission.

Iain and Kathie are attracted to one another from the start and quickly make love. He invites her to Scotland and she accepts. His oldest son is hostile to her while his youngest son welcomes her. As they fall in love, someone poisons his sheep leading Kathie to employ all she learned from research for her novels to determine who would do this to Iain.

Fans of contemporary romance with a love at first sight theme will enjoy this delightful charmer. The story line is fun and the lead female quite amusing with her wit and asides. Iain is a hunk who finds his beloved amusing and to his credit takes no guff towards her from his son or his neighbor. Though a bit of suspense is unnecessary to a strong love story, readers will appreciate MEN IN KILTS not just as a good read, but for the respect Iain bestows on Kathie.

The sight of Iain MacLaren wakes her up. Clad in a deliciously woolly sweater, the burly Scotsman seems to be holding up a wall at the cocktail party. So Kathie makes her move...and winds up stark naked with him in bed, where his thick Scottish brogue, thick manly chest, and thick... other her to do things she's never done before. Like fall in love.

And if things aren't moving fast enough—and on the wrong side of the road, no less—Kathie is about to visit Iain's sheep farm in the Scottish Highlands and meet his sons. She's feeling a wee bit nervous. Because she can't tell where this mad affair is going—except north...
