So excited to release this book! I’ve had it planned since before publishing Must Love Breeches that Book 3 would be Must Love Kilts, but I didn’t know what shape it would take. It has surprised me time and again.
Besides the normal surprises that happen when conceiving and writing a book (and revising and revising) were these:
1) that it would have its own sequel and follow Duncan and Fiona in a novella.
2) realizing that this sequel would not be a novella, but a full-length novel
3) completely changing the twist at the end and having that be a potential spring board for a new series of alternate history romances set in Scotland.
I don’t know if the latter will actually happen, but the potential is there and I’m excited about it 🙂
For those unfamiliar with my time travel romance series, this is Book 3, but it can work as a standalone. However, it does refer back to the heroines of the first two (since they’re friends) and so if you don’t want to know which time period they end up in, you might want to start with Book 1, Must Love Breeches.
Besides the historical research I did for this book, I was also lucky enough to be able to go to Scotland this March and scout out locations for this book! I thought I’d share some of the settings that are featured in Must Love Kilts. But first, here’s a picture of the small cottage I rented for the week and where I did work on revisions for the early draft:
The story follows two sisters who are re-bonding as adults and have a bit too much to drink. Some Las Vegas style bad decisions follow, one of which was going back in time on a bet. Here’s the inn I stayed in and set the location for the sisters hanging out and drinking:
Without giving too much of the plot away, some events happen at Urquhart Castle. I’ll give enough of a hint in the captions so those who’ve read it will know what it relates to:
And last but not least, some of the shots around Killiecrankie:
About Must Love Kilts
The Jacobite Rebellion–not the best time to get drunk, hook up with a guy, and lose your sister.
A drunken bet…
When computer game designer Traci Campbell gets too close and personal with a bottle of Glenfiddich while vacationing in Scotland, she whisks her kilt-obsessed sister back to 1689 to prove hot guys in kilts are a myth. Hello, hundred bucks! But all bets are off when she meets Iain, the charming playboy in a to-die-for kilt.
Wrong place, wrong time, wrong name…
Iain MacCowan regularly falls in love at the drop of his kilt. The mysterious red-haired lass with the odd accent is no different. But when his new love is discovered to be a Campbell, the most distrusted name in the Highlands, his dalliance endangers his clan’s rebellion against King William.
It’s all hijinks in the Highlands until your sister disappears…
Traci thinks men are only good for one thing–thank you, Iain!–but when she awakens once again in Ye Olde Scotland and her sister is gone, she must depend on the last person she wants to spend more time with. He wants to win a heart, she wants to keep hers, but can these two realize they’re meant for each other before the Jacobite rebellion pulls them apart?
To celebrate, I’ll pick a winner at random Saturday morning, all you have to do is comment. You’ll have a choice of an ebook copy of either Must Love Breeches or my RITA-nominated novel Must Love Chainmail.
