Interesting and fun story. Cilla is an American in Scotland and she can see ghost. One is hot and sexy Hardwick. There are things happening around the bogs that need exploring. The older residents at the castle add a tough of humor. Hardwick is friends with other ghost who help when called upon. There are two mystery ghost with a small background story. The story is fun.

HASH(0xb46ba750) out of 5 stars Another Winner Nov. 18 2008
By Patricia Bosko - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Allie Mackay has another winner to her list of Paranormals! Scotland and paranormal go hand in hand. And Allie's love for the country is clearly described.
Cilla goes of to Scotland from Yardley, Pa (near where I live) and visits her Aunt's only to meet her ghost, Hardwick. (has a pun intended with the name) deStudley. It's interesting as to how Hardwick's curse ends. She captivates your attention throughout the story. I would actually like to see her write about the "Dark One". Maybe he can meet the woman he loved centuries ago...Something to consider, Allie!
A highly recommended read to all my Scotland/Paranormal followers!

HASH(0xb4523e04) out of 5 stars Reviewed by Wild on Books! Dec 10 2008
By Natalie S - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Seven hundred years ago, Sir Hardwin de Studley of Seagrave refused to allow a traveling band inside his home while he was entertaining. This lack of hospitality cost him - he has been cursed for eternity for his rudeness. His curse? Hardwin has been consigned to spend his immortality pleasing a different woman every single night. After years of enduring the infinite supply of women who want nothing more than the pleasure he can give them, Hardwin has had enough. He asks the Dark One to intercede and rid him of his curse. The Dark One is more than happy to allow Hardwin some respite; all he has to do is go one year and a day without becoming sexually aroused. Not a problem for Hardwin, or so he thinks. He has yet to see Cilla Swanner, a guest in Dunroamin Castle.

Cilla Swanner has traveled Scotland to visit her aunt and uncle who live in Dunroamin Castle. Cilla makes elaborate jewelry out of broken china but ever since her boyfriend broke up with her, she has not been able to get anyone to commission any pieces. Faced with not being able to pay her bills, Cilla comes to Scotland hoping to relax and rethink her business plan. Her first day there, she is astonished and almost faints when she sees a huge Scottish man move in a poster. Not believing her eyes, she thinks she is going crazy, especially when the voices start. Cilla refuses to give in to her thoughts that ghosts exist except for one thing. This ghost in particular is breathtakingly handsome and Cilla is attracted to him in ways she shouldn't be.

Cilla and Hardwin fall in love, despite his promise to the Dark One. He does everything he can think of to not give in and I smiled more than once at his dilemma. If there was one thing Hardwin knew, it was that Cilla was his and he wanted her badly. Never believing that he would ever find a woman, Hardwin almost let her pass him by. Working together to get to the bottom of forces rising to demonic proportions, Cilla and her man continue to fall in love all the while trying to figure out why they are seeing hellish demons and hags.

Witty to the point that I laughed out loud more than once, I have to admit that Hardwin's nickname made me giggle in hilarity. His predicament, while serious, was almost comical, especially with the only item he used to hide his arousal - a round shield. More than one ghost teased Hardwin but the laugh was on them because by the end of TALL, DARK AND KILTED, he was one happy Scottish warrior.

TALL, DARK AND KILTED is outlandishly funny one minute and seductively sensual the next. Never expecting to find true love, both the heroine and her hero had to adjust to the feelings each invoked in the other. Allie MacKay has written TALL, DARK AND KILTED in such a way that makes the reader truly believe in the idea of happily ever after. Grab a plaid and your favorite kilt - readers won't want to miss this amusing and romantic time travel romance.

HASH(0xb46f472c) out of 5 stars Tall Dark and Kilted man... need I say more? Nov. 15 2008
By Quarter_Inch - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Few authors can make me chuckle like Allie MacKay, and this book from her is no exception. Add a kilted man to the story and I'm reaching for my wallet faster than you can say 'bare knees on a highlander'.

I enjoyed this book slightly less than the others, but if you read Highlander in Her Bed and/or Highlander in Her Dreams you will probably be okay with Tall Dark and Kilted. Hardwick, Bran of Barra, and Wee Hughie were introduced previously, and reading Highlander in Her Bed will add some depth to this story for you. Over all, it's a good read.

HASH(0xb4530828) out of 5 stars A Heartwarming Tale of Forbidden Love Oct. 7 2014
By Leah Weller - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sir Hardwin de Studley of Seagrave, also known as Hardwick, was cursed to spend forever pleasing women nightly but never finding his own release by a passing bard/wizard who he turned away from his castle because he thought the man was out to murder nobles that were under his roof. Hardwick has gone to the Dark One asking for the curse he's carried for 700 years to be lifted. All he has to do is go one year and a day without becoming aroused. He chooses a retirement home in the present day wilds of Scotland to spend his time so he can find his everlasting peace when the time is up. Little does he know that an American woman will walk into his world and shake his control and threaten everything he is working towards.

Cilla Swanner has been deeply hurt by a man she gave her heart to and goes to her aunt and uncle in Scotland to recover from a broken heart and a broken business. She starts seeing a handsome Highlander and comes to realize he is a ghost. Her aunt sees him too and when she learns that Cilla is starting to care for this ghost, and that he in turn cares for her niece, she encourages the match. Hardwick goes to the Dark One asking for one night with Cilla but when he does the Dark One asks for Cilla's soul in return. Hardwick rejects this and is whisked away from the Dark One.

Trouble is brewing at Dunroamin Castle and Hardwick, with the help of some of his ghostly friends, start to unravel the problem. He is finding that he cannot conjure his ghostly abilities and when he chases after Cilla to stop her from going into danger he finds that even darkness holds light and his wishes come to life. With the help of a ghostly Viking couple, and even the Dark One, Hardwick and Cilla find a way to save Dunroamin Castle and their love for each other.

This was a heartwarming tale of forbidden love packed with hilarious situations and wonderful secondary characters. It left me feeling that no matter how unattainable something may seem, if our heart and soul want something bad enough, nothing is beyond reach.

HASH(0xb45330e4) out of 5 stars I loved all three of the Ravenscraig Legacy books that Allie ... Dec 1 2014
By Sande - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved all three of the Ravenscraig Legacy books that Allie McCray has written, but I enjoyed this one the best. Seven hundred years of satisfying women has been the curse of Hardwick, also known as Sir Hardwin de Studley. He took the curse and all it entailed with all the charm and pleasure as most men would, until it finally became something he loathed to do! He makes his plea in the underworld to be rid of the curse, and finally have peace. He is granted the opportunity to break the curse by going for a year without becoming aroused by a woman. If he succeeds, he gets the eternal peace he craves, and if he fails, he gets an eternal damnation of pleasing hell hags that shiver his ghostly bones to think about. Believing that he has it all figured out he then chooses Dunroamin Castle, which is a residential retirement home, to spend his trial year being bored and uninspired. Wholly free from the temptation of any women. Then enters the bonnie American niece of the castle owners Birdie and Mac MacGhee. She is the golden haired Cilla Swanner who has her own troubles in the matters of love. Not only has she been betrayed and dumped by her fiancée Grant Hughes III, but his new girlfriend (wife) successfully ruins Celia's small jewelry business. Not only does Hardwick find her attractive, but she brings out his chivalrous and protective nature immediately upon hearing her sad story, and I found it endearing. Cilla needed a champion after the raw deal with Hughes, but what's more she needed someone to really love her. On the other hand Hardwick finds himself following her about like a lovestruck gawp, and immediately realizes his troubles have just begun.

Hardwick and Cilla finally get things figured out, and it's a merry tale of sweet temptation and desire to say the least. Complete with a bit of mystery as there is someone trying to "hurt" the McGhee's, plus there turns out to be buried treasure, and let's not forget there are more ghosts, and of course the evil lord of the underworld. Truly, an adult fairy tale if I've ever read one!

I am hoping Mackay writes her a book about the boisterous Bran MacNeil of Barra who thinks it's so funny that his friends are falling in love left and right. He who laughs last, laughs loudest!
