Only one woman can break Duncan MacDougall's curse, freeing him from centuries of haunting his castle, alone and unloved. Then, a quirk of law compels Beth Pudding to live in Blackstone castle, with the ghost, for six months in order to inherit. To all appearances, Beth is ordinary, a cook from America, but she can see the ghost and she can love him. When time takes a twist and sends her back in time to Duncan, she is not sure what has happened, nor is he. When Duncan and Beth meet in the flesh, he has not died yet, so he has not met her yet, and believes her to be the woman the king has ordered him to wed. As a ghost, he won her heart, now she must win his as a man to save him from a fate that makes death worse. ............................ *** If you love Scottish hunks, this book is for you. If you hated how Somewhere in Time ended, this is also for you. Ms. Blair combines at least three plot devices in a neat way to prove that love is the best miracle of all. ***Was this review helpful?

This story will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you miss this one, you'll regret it. I, myself, couldn't put it down. I can't wait for 'A Rogue in a Kilt'. If there were 10 stars, I'd give this an eleven!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Beth Pudding has never thought of herself as anything but plain. To make up for her shortcomings, she has become quite expert and addicted to using cosmetics to enhance what little she has. When she inherits an ancient castle in Scotland, she packs her makeup and heads to Scotland. Duncan MacDougall has been dead for a few centuries. He's stuck wandering his castle until he finds the perfect woman to claim as his own. When he see's Beth he's more than a little disappointed--he'd hoped for someone a little less on the plain side. However, he comes to respect the American and when a choice has to be made between losing her and choosing her--he claims her. Beth awakens to find herself with a very alive Duncan MacDougall who has no memory of being a ghost and every memory of being her husband. What I like best about the book is just the author's voice. It is a really enjoyable read. The kind of book that you pick up and before you know it you are at page 50. The hero is also everything a Scottish hero should be: strong-willed and sexy. The herione brave and outspoken. It's a great read from start to finish. :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In New York, estate executor Tom Silverstein, as his family has done dating back to 1408 provides financial and legal advice to the Blackstones. He persuades caterer Katherine Elizabeth Pudding to come to Scotland to look at her inheritance, but hides part of the truth from her. A week later she journeys to Castle Blackstone where the ghostly Laird resides..................................... . In Drasmoor, Scotland, trapped between life and death, Duncan MacDonald awaits unhappily the arrival of the heir, a cook from some barbarous realm called The Bronx. Still he prays she is the one to free him from his six centuries old curse. Not long after she enters the castle, he slips a ring on her and they travel back to the fourteenth century. As Beth and Duncan fall in love, she takes over the running of his castle and prays she can free her beloved from the curse that is yet to occur.............................................. A MAN IN A KILT is an amusing romance that satirizes several sub-genres to include paranormal, time travel, medieval, and to a lesser degree contemporary. Fans of each classification will laugh at the antics of Beth as she loosely adjusts to running the show although she fails to speak the language and cannot find any of the modern day tools she is used to having; her twenty-first century profession as a caterer and living in the Bronx work quite well in managing a castle. Duncan is the typical brooding hero who need to surrender his heart if he is to avoid the curse. This is a fun time for romance readers.....................................
