Erin MacGregor's latest location-scouting trip for the reality dating show Your Prince Charming leads her to misty Glenshire, Scotland, and its resident laird, Dylan Chisholm. Erin has heard that Dylan is turning the family's castle into a bed-and-breakfast. Surely he can't resist her offer to rent out the estate for filming this season's show. Think of the publicity. Not to mention the big check. But he has other ideas, none of them compatible with turning his castle into a production-crew madhouse. Erin is sure that her salesmanship can overcome Dylan's objections, but she is a little leery about her growing attraction to the stubborn Scot. Erin is a quirky, fun heroine--thankfully not at all the model-perfect type. Dylan is wonderfully sexy and a modern variation on the Beast: less brooding but still reclusive and burdened. Kauffman's lively wrap-up to the Chisholm Brothers series (including Bad Boys in Kilts , 2006) is heartwarming. Nina Davis

Dylan is not looking for a happy ending. He's consumed with making his family home a success he's not interested in the little American. Or at least that's what he tells himself. But, it's hard to lie to oneself when the village matchmakers along with his brothers conspire against him. Despite his better judgment he lets the lass use his pile of rocks. Now he can't ignore the attraction between them. Now what's he going to do. Admit to falling in love or running for the hills?
This was sadly a tepid effort. For one thing I don't feel there was enough storyline here to make this a fulfilling full length. This is a spin off from an anthology and frankly I think this title could have been included in the first book. Although there was heat it was tame and frankly I found myself putting the book down to read other titles...something I rarely ever do. Although not a title to ignore--I'd borrow from a friend or at the very least come to this story with an open mind.
I enjoyed the premise that someone ordinary looking (like most of us) could be found valuable by an ‘Adonis” look alike. The author brought to the forefront the non visual elements of the heroine’s person. The writer was able to produce a budding, growing romance still filled with wonder that carried through to the end. A good thing because many books have romance popping up out of thin air, with the expectation that the reader would not notice how shallow the roots were. Not so with The Great Scot, kudos to Donna Kaufman, continue the good writing.
