1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Deborah MacGillivray on Oct. 1 2003
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.

Parts of this book were laugh-out-loud funny. I would have enjoyed it a lot more if Kathie wasn't such a whiny, self-pitying, over-analyzing character who cries at the drop of a hat and feels sorry for herself throughout half the book. If all that crap had been cut out, the book could have been about 100 pages shorter and would have been better, in my opinion. Also, I thought the ending was ridiculous and pointless, but again, just my opinion. If you can look past Kathie's character flaws, it really is a funny, cute book.

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.

But I kept reading thinking it just HAD to get better. I was wrong. I think Katie Macalister needs to slow down and give more depth to her characters, more thought to her plot and quit trying to please her publishers by putting out books like a writing machine.
Also, her American heroine's use of British terms in coversation was annoying. And wouldn't any real American pack a pair of jeans when they travel?

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.

I found "Men in Kilts" by Katie Macalister, to be a fun story. The characters were fun and believable, the dialogue fun and fast, and the plot fun and entertaining. An appealing combination.

<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.
