This is my favorite book of all the books I've ever read! I loved the humor and I loved Iain - he sounded like the guy next door, like we could actually meet someone like him in real life. I loved Kathie and her and crazy family. I've recommended this book to everyone, and they all loved it! You will find your self literally laughing out loud. I love going back to read it over and over. This is feel good book to brighten your day. The first time I read it, I couldn't put it down - I read it straight through in one day!

I picked up this book assuming that it would be just another run of the mill romance book without much substance or plot... I was completely wrong. This book is an absolute gem because not only does it focus on a couple older than the traditional romantic couple, but every single page is full of witty comments and thoughts that will literally make you laugh out loud. I fell in love with Kathie the minute i started reading the book, and it felt like i was actually there with her while she experienced what it is like to fall head over heels right from the first view. This is truly a fantastic read and one i recommend to anybody who loves romance or even simply just needs a good laugh... really brilliant book.

Flying in from Seattle to London and then training to Manchester, mystery author Kathie Williams is the only American invited to participate in Murder in Manchester. Jet lag and tiredness leaves her asleep in the lobby drooling on her outfit. At the convention she meets Scottish sheep rancher Iain MacLaren, whose two adult sons, knowing he loves mystery novels, paid his admission.

Iain and Kathie are attracted to one another from the start and quickly make love. He invites her to Scotland and she accepts. His oldest son is hostile to her while his youngest son welcomes her. As they fall in love, someone poisons his sheep leading Kathie to employ all she learned from research for her novels to determine who would do this to Iain.

Fans of contemporary romance with a love at first sight theme will enjoy this delightful charmer. The story line is fun and the lead female quite amusing with her wit and asides. Iain is a hunk who finds his beloved amusing and to his credit takes no gruff towards her from his son or his neighbor. Though a bit of suspense is unnecessary to a strong love story, readers will appreciate MEN IN KILTS not just as a good read, but for the respect Iain bestows on Kathie.

Kathie Williams makes a few blunders as the only American writer at an English mystery conference, but she does manage to do one thing right, falling head over heels for Iain MacLaren. Before she knows what has happened, she finds herself back home in Scotland with him. However, legalities and visas might cut short their romance, which would suit his snarky eldest son and 'witchy' man hunting neighbor just fine. ..................... Kathie has managed to fall out of lust and into love with her handsome Scot, and is determined to win him as her own, if for no other reason than to keep the said witch's claws off him. Marriage does not guarantee bliss though. The neighbor is still around, and causing more and more problems. The youngest son is a staunch ally, but the older would just as soon send her back to America. She also has the language barrier to navigate and learn that farm animals are not pets, no matter how cute. ................... **** There is a laugh a minute in this realistically hilarious novel. Kathie handles every situation, no matter how much of a challenge they might be, with flair. The villainess is someone you can justifiably hiss at, and Iain is entirely too good to be true. However, he does get a bit dense at times, as do all men. He is handsome enough to make that forgiveable. While you will be laughing on almost every page, the final sentence is so touching, you might have to wipe away a tear. ****

Funny, warm hearted, and wonderfully hot, I loved this book! The parts with Iain were so realistic I could almost hear his burr. I laughed out loud so much reading this my husband asked me what was the matter.

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. She is a bit overwhelmed by jet lag and ends up sleeping through a big part of the first day - unfortunately it is in the lobby! Not bad enough she naps in public, she drools on her new silk blouse! Embarrassed, Kathie is ready to crawl under the table and hide ¿but for one thing: Iain MacLaren. The handsome Scotsman is also attending the conference. Sparks fly between the two and suddenly, she believes in love at first sight. Kathie falls desperately for the alpha Scot, so she is delighted when Iain insists she come visit him in Scotland after the conference ends. Wow what a storybook romance, right? You meet the man of your dreams, he is to-die-for sexy, has a kilt and does not mind you drooled on yourself in public! Wrong, as Kathie soon finds out. Iain is divorced with two grown sons. The first one hates her on site and things she is a floozy. Luckily, the second one is more welcoming. But then, waiting for them is Iain¿s neighbor, once upon a time lover, and she is determined to break up the romance in quick order. Despite a man less than forth coming about his true feelings, a neighbor who wants to bury the hatchet - in Kathie¿s head, a son-in-law to be from hell, and smelly sheep, love finds a way. Then Kathie has to face a Scottish wedding from Hell, with her domineering mother and Iain¿s first wife making it the wedding event of the year. Katie writes about Scotland with a true voice. Being a Scot, I often have the cringe at some of the mistakes of Yank writers when they use Scotland as a setting. She keeps it true, right down to the sheep and the realities of business side of it. I laughed, I cried. Don't think it gets any better! 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). Keep them coming, Katie! They are a sparkling delight!

Lukewarm romance, characters with ridiculous emotions, and the beastly Bridget gets off with a warning??? Kathie was a wimp and her writing career disappears when she moves to Scotland? Don't get me started on the non-ending ending!

I loved this book. The only thing I wasn't overjoyed with was the way it ended. It felt unfinished.
