Product Description

From Booklist

Mystery writer Kathie Williams firmly believes in rules when it comes to romance, and falling in love at first glance is not one of them. Yet somehow one look at Iain MacLaren and Kathie forgets the conference she's attending to dream up ways to seduce the dishy Scotsman. She accepts a surprise dinner invitation from Iain, which leads to a much more intimate kind of evening than she ever could have imagined. Throwing caution to the wind, Kathie agrees to spend the rest of her vacation with him on his sheep farm in the Scottish Highlands, but any hope of a long-term relationship with her laconic lover means dealing with his assorted relatives and neighbors, a scheming ex-paramour who is not about to let Iain slip through her clutches, and Iain's career, which involves letting adorable lambs become someone's entree. With its wickedly witty writing, wonderfully snappy dialogue, and uniquely amusing characters, MacAlister's latest is perfect for any reader seeking a deliciously sexy yet also subtly sweet contemporary romance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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 (she has an anthology out in June 2003 called Heat Wave) 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.

I was so disappointed by this book! I had received the first chapter via email from a book club and I couldn't wait to get the book. I put it on my Christmas list, my birthday list, and I finally got it for myself. The snippet I had received in my email was witty, and fun, but the book was boring and overdone. This book was very easy to put down.
The first 100+ pages of the book are about the main character's lustful sex with a dishy Scot. (I liked it, but not for 100+ pages!) Then the next 92 or so pages are about the main character trying to get the Scot to marry her.
The rest of the book picked up pace, which was nice. There was a "mystery" but right from the beginning, they knew "who" and "what", they just didn't have proof until later in the book. Some mystery.
I cannot believe how one dimensional the Scot was. He is a sexpot, good in bed, and has a good heart. That's it.
I really liked the voice the book was written in, and that was refreshing but just spending the first 200 pages of any book reading over and over about the main characters having sex and the woman trying to manipulate the man into marrying her is not my idea of a good read.

<Yawn> Okay. American mystery writer goes to conference in Manchester, England. Makes fool of herself. Meets Scotsman. Makes fool of herself again. Scotsman for some reason then invites her to dinner, doesn't get put off by her inane conversation, sleeps with her. And then... invites her to meet his son and takes her back to his farm with him? Why?
Anyway, once they arrive at the farm - only three chapters into the book - all we are left with is boredom for the reader. Events and characters which were of no interest whatsoever to this reader. We have the stereotypical one-dimensional vindictive ex-girlfriend, and the equally one-dimensional jealous son. And we have sheep. Lots of sheep. Described in tedious detail, as is the occupation of farming them.
This is supposed to be a comedy? Well, some of it is admittedly farcical, but not farcical in the sense of being humorous. No, it's farcical in the sense of 'some editor actually let this rubbish get published?' We have three whole pages of ridiculous, over-the-top hysterics derived from the fact that Americans call trousers 'pants' while the British (and the Irish and the Australians and other great chunks of the English-speaking world) consider 'pants' to be underwear. Is there an American alive who doesn't actually know this?
Oh, and what about the romance? What romance? To this reader's eye, Kathie (the heroine, whose name bears a very strong similarity to that of the author) hears a Scottish accent, puts it together with her mental fantasies of Scotsmen derived from her love of Scottish romances (no doubt written by Americans who have probably never visited the place) and the Highlander film/TV series, and falls in lust.

Okay, this is the first book by Macalister and it is not a good impression. I have no idea how she could write such a flimsy character that acts half her age. I don't know how that works with everyone else but this book only made me laugh of the idiocities that the main female lead makes. I got to the hundredth page and good I groaned with pain.
Iain truly is a great hero which deserves a good woman by his side. He is serious, sexy and with a speech that makes you sigh. I liked his sons, even the rude one with the slut comment because they add toward the plot but Bridget is a true b****. I can not figure out how Kathie took so many insults without a resounding slap or coffee burn. She is the woman that none of us want to be.
If you paint a character in these times as a 19 year old, don't make her a heroine of a book that truly could have been something good. Katie, I am going to try the other books, but after trying this one the future just looks bleak. Women who act like that in real life deserve to be treated and think like the ninny they are.
