A cowboy without a home
Screwed out of the family ranch that was his rightful inheritance, Raleigh Beaumont is a man with no roots and no purpose. When a friend drags him to the bright lights of Vegas, he figures he’s got nothing to lose. But after a hell of a lot of whiskey and a high stakes poker game with a beautiful stranger, Fate hands him a second chance: An estate in the Highlands of Scotland. It’s far from everything he’s ever known, but he’s willing to trade his Wranglers for a kilt.
An heiress with a crumbling heritage
When her brother’s bride goes AWOL just days before the wedding that’s meant to save their ancestral home from the mad marriage pact that’s held their family captive for generations, Kyla McKean believes they’ve been granted a reprieve. Until she finds out about the new, single—male—owner of Lochmara and knows she’s next in the hot seat or ownership of both their estates revert to the crown.
A modern answer to a three-hundred-year-old problem.
Kyla’s desperate to save Ardinmuir. She proposes a marriage of convenience. One year as husband and wife to satisfy the pact, then they get a quick and quiet divorce. Raleigh’s already lost one legacy. He’ll do anything to keep from losing another, even tie the knot with a stubborn stranger who feels far more like ally than adversary.
Just loved Raleigh and Kyla’s journey.
Two people being thrown into a marriage of convenience. Scotland it’s castles and tradition take the Texan in as family.
Cowboy in a kilt.
Great characters facing a twist from history! Loved the story. Brought back memories of holidaying in the Scottish Highlands.
Off to a flying start
If Cowboy in a Kilt is anything to go by then Kait Nolan has another winning series on her hands. From the first word I was drawn into Kyla MacKean and Raleigh Beaumont’s story and such was the writing I could easily picture myself in Lochmara or Ardinmuir, Scotland. Although not strictly necessary, if you have time download Jilting The Kilt, the prequel.
When Raleigh meets Afton Lennox in Vegas and is invited to a private poker game, he has no idea how it will change his life. Still reeling after losing his family ranch, Raleigh is shocked to suddenly find himself the owner of Lochmara. Thanks to an ancient pact, he also finds himself engaged and quickly married to Kyla since Afton left Scotland and the marriage of convenience that had been planned between her and Kyla’s brother Connor.
The plan is to get married, separate and eventually divorce, a marriage of convenience, but we all know plans can change. I loved how these two strangers quickly became friends, listening to one another and being so supportive. I loved their journey from friends to lovers, it was heart warming and based on a genuine friendship.
The secondary characters were entertaining and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
