“I loved Some Like it Plaid—it’s cute, funny, and fast-paced, with a smokin’ hot Scottish hero from long ago paired with a smart, relatable modern-day heroine. I can’t wait for more in this series.”
—RITA Award winner Susan Grant, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author
When Ashley Miller sees a Craigslist ad for an all-expense paid vacation to Scotland with a handsome Highland “escort,” she’s all over it. Worn out from working two jobs to pay off the debts her scam artist ex-husband left her with, she just needs a friggin’ break already. Rolling, misty mountains of the Scottish Highlands, here she comes!
But one minute she’s sipping a latte and the next she’s zapped to the 2nd century—and promptly informed she’s managed to wed her handsome Highlander without even an “I do.” Oh, hell no.
After a devastating tragedy, Connall’s tribe is left with few marriageable women. When his Druid priest suggests a place filled with bonnie lasses, he of course agrees to go fetch one for himself. But nothing prepared Connall for his sassy new wife, nor his tribe for a woman determined to see equal rights for all women.
Now the men are threatening revolt if he can’t rein his young wife in, but it might be too late. The women are demanding the men get “woke”—which of course makes no sense, because they already woke that morn—and give women “the vote,” whatever the bloody hell that is. Despite all that, Connall can’t stop wanting to convince his wife to get naked, and he’s starting to wonder if he’s been bewitched.
Only the more he gets to know her, the more he starts to think she’s just what they needed. If only he survives her next demand…
I have always enjoyed reading books involving Scotsman and time travel but it must have romance! Now Angela Quarles writes an excellent series of books which involves all of the ideas I love and this book is no exception!
Yes, we have the proverbial Druid who sets the time travel scene but the rest is up to the traveler. Connall travels in this case into the future looking for a wife to help increase the tribe. Love is not part of the equation but it ends up part of it. Now how does he find the right woman because going around and asking women to marry him is not working. So enter Emperor Norton who helps Connall by introducing him to Craig’s List, lol! An interesting concept which actually works.
As Ashley shows up and they travel to the past the story is just beginning and please realize that men will learn the beginning of women wanting equality in the past!
I throughly enjoyed the book and look forward to another of the same type or in the series!
Great time travel romance
Full of action, hilarious and fascinating time travel romance. Both characters are stubborn yet they work well together. Even though Ashley is now in the "past" I like that as she absorbs her new environment, she also shares a bit of her future knowledge which benefits them and I think helps the reader not only relate but get even more caught up in this adventure. Enjoyed reading this and look forward to reading about the next plaid looking to the future for a wife. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.
