{Read my review of Mad About Plaid}



With Balmorie Guest House up and running, Devin MacLaren can finally focus on restoring the holiday cottages on the estate. Recently returned from war, all he wants is the peace and quiet only the Highlands can give him. With Kate's arrival, that peace goes right out the window. As much as he’d like to avoid the sexy troublemaker, he needs her animal expertise to help his retired military dog, Hildie.

Despite their failed first (and second) meeting, Kate can’t help but be attracted to the solitary Scot; there’s so much heat lurking behind those solemn eyes that she can’t seem to stay away. There’s more to Devin MacLaren than meets the eye. And while Hildie might need her help, it’s Devin who needs her heart.




I loved Mad About Plaid, the first in the Balmorie novella series, but I loved A Scot Like You even more. There was just something about Kate and Dev, separately and together, that really got to me.

loved Kate’s spunk and her fiery personality. I liked that she wasn’t easily embarrassed, especially since she got herself into some situations that would have made me want to crawl in a hole and never come out. Dev is quiet and solitary; he’s haunted by the things he saw and the things that happened during the war, and now all he wants is some peace and to get on with his life and the new family business. Kate streaks into his life (literally) and is exactly what he needs in so many ways. Dev was incredibly sexy - definitely my idea of a Scottish fantasy - but I loved that he was also vulnerable and willing to open himself up to love even when he originally thought he just wanted to be on his own and have time to heal.

Other things I really enjoyed about A Scot Like You: how the dogs were worked into the story. I learned new things about service dogs, and I liked that Kate was passionate about animals and learned new things about herself when she met Dev and his dog Hildie. I also loved Fran and Hamish (who we met in the first book), a couple who worked at the estate and were like family to the MacLarens. They were funny and sweet and added more depth to the story.

Funny, romantic, sexy, and touching, A Scot Like You is a definite must-read for fans of contemporary romance.
