One of the brighest writers in Romance today!

Katie Macalister with her Noble Intentions gave us delights and out-right howls as she blithely waltzed her way through Regency England. In her second book, she taught us romance with Improper English, a brilliantly witty book with characters to live long in the imagination and heart. Her third book found her once again in Regency era, and she proved yet another time she has a way with the clumsy heroine. Her fourth full book finds Katie back in contemporaries, this time doing to the Scots what she did to the Brits in Improper English. Another of her `first person' adventures that will have you laughing till your sides are sore. Personally, I find writing in 1st person a pain, and I usually have a problem reading them. It makes me feel like I am crawling around inside someone's head. However, Katie Macalister is at home in first person, a master at it, so she soon makes one forget this `immediate' narrative is not how everyone should do it. Katie avoids all the 1st person pitfalls that make the structure slightly claustrophobic with all the I, me and my...she sparkles, intrigues and is just one of the freshest voices to hit romance (and young adult, too, as Katie Maxwell for Dorchester's Smooch Line). So buckle up, for Katie gives you romance, love and the whole damn thing - sheep included. She blows the lid of the time honoured secret of what DOES a Scotsman wear under the kilt? It is wildly comical and fast becoming Katie's trademark - she gives you the less than perfect heroine. I find it so comfy her females are so very human. Kathie Williams is a mystery writer in England for a writers' conference. She's a bit overwhelmed by jet lag and ends up sleeping through a big part of the first day - unfortunately it is in the hotel lobby! Not bad enough she naps in public, she drools on her new silk blouse! Embarrassed, Kathie is ready to crawl under the table and hide ...but for one thing: Iain MacLaren. The handsome Scotsman is also attending the mystery writers conference. Sparks fly between the two and suddenly, she believes in love at first sight. Kathie falls desperately for the Alpha Scot, so she is delighted when Iain insists she come visit him in Scotland after the conference ends. Wow what a storybook romance, right? You meet the man of your dreams, he is to-die-for sexy, has a kilt and does not mind you drooled on yourself in public! Wrong, as Kathie soon finds out. Iain is divorced with two grown sons. The first one hates her on site and thinks she is a floozy. Luckily, the second one is more welcoming. But then, waiting for them is Iain's neighbor, once upon a time lover, and she is determined to break up the romance in quick order. Despite a man less than forth coming about his true feelings, a neighbor who wants to bury the hatchet - in Kathie's head, a son-in-law to be from hell, and flocks of smelly sheep, love finds a way. Then Kathie has to face a Scottish wedding from Hell, with her domineering mother and Iain's first wife

Fun Book

Wonderfully warm and fun book. Interesting how the heroine meets the hero, and their evolving relationship. The fact that this is set in Scotland just adds to the appeal. There are great secondary characters. The parts about the farm and sheep are interesting and add to the book. If you like funny books, kilts and Scotland you can't miss this one.

So embarrasing!

I live in a community next to the pool, and I finally came out of my total absorption in this book to hear some, um, comments. Not clearly, of course, just somewhere in the neighborhood of "What is that crazy loon next door laughing about now?" As I am in the AZ region all the windows are open. Hmmm. Note to self: close windows when reading Katie MacAlister. Men in Kilts was one of the gut-busters I love so much. Kathie the American at the Murder in Manchester conference in London quickly becomes a moron in the presence of a lovely Scotsman, Iain (well, in my book, how could a big Scot not be lovely?). For some male macho reason Iain finds Kathie's witlessness very amusing. The story line of two cultures and mindsets meeting, clashing and totally crossing signals is entertaining with it's freshness. And how many of us ladies have not dreamed, even if knowing it to be completely impractical and possibly yucky, of a simple life with a lovely Scots sheepherder? Or something like that. To read this gem is to love it and keep it to read over and over. As another reviewer said, order a second book for when this one wears out and never, ever loan it out. Now, from my education of growing up with a dear friend whose family owns a large sheep ranch, I can say Katie got it right. That's what makes this book not just fluff. This lady did her research of a working sheep farm, understood it and described it well. It was something like reading a journal of my very enthusiastic experience helping my friend's family out with all the moments of owning sheep. For that alone, Men in Kilts could have been somewhat dry until you throw in Kathie Williams, mystery writer, and Iain MacLaren, mystery reader. Sensual, witty; I think I'll go and read it again. Just to make sure I didn't miss any good parts!

LOL! unexpected find

I laughed so much during this book that I just have to rave about it and tell people they have to read it.I picked it up because the title looked funny and I wasn't disapppointed. What surprised me most about this book is that as I was reading it, I kept thinking to myself "I shouldn't like this book--she keeps doing stuff that I normally hate!" But then something funny would happen and I'd just have to keep on reading. Overall, I will be reading books by McAlister in the future (I just finished A Girls Guide to Vampires) and don't think I'll be disappointed.One note on the plot-- this isn't a how-are-they-ever-going-to-get-together romance, it is a they-are-together-and-let's-deal-with-the-fallout romance.

With her improper English takes on men in skirts!!
