Lucy Walker isn’t a travel writer, but she’s taking her cousin Riley’s place and going to Balmorie Estate anyway. Why she gets talked into these things, she doesn’t know. But what she does know is that Ian MacLaren is not the type of Innkeeper she was expecting. Her plan to take notes and record all of Balmorie’s amenities so her cousin can then write a review becomes more and more difficult to do when she has her very own Scottish hunk as her tour guide.

Ian MacLaren needs a glowing review in America’s largest travel magazine to jumpstart the guest house business. He and his brothers have poured their hearts, souls, and every last penny into the estate. And when he finds out the cute travel writer isn’t who she claims to be all bets are off and revenge is more than sweet...

This is such a cute novella that I think will appeal to all romance lovers, especially those who like a hunky Scot…or three.

Ian MacLaren, the oldest of the MacLaren clan, and an ex-military man, is in the process of getting Balmorie Estate ready for the public as a guest house, and he needs help spreading the word. That’s where Riley Brooks, travel writer, comes in…except Riley is busy trying to save her marriage, so she sends her cousin Lucy in her place.

Lucy is like a walking disaster. From the moment she arrives in Scotland, nothing seems to go right. I really liked Lucy. It was obvious she loved her family and would do anything for them. She’s a bit lost and aimless, looking for her place and purpose in life, and the last thing she expects is to fall in love in Scotland, or find what she’s meant to do with her life.

I loved that Ian was so dedicated to restoring Balmorie. It’s exactly the kind of place I’d love to stay in when I visit Scotland…and I wouldn’t mind meeting a sexy Innkeeper like him! I’ve always had a not-so-secret fantasy of going to Scotland (or Ireland or England) and falling head over heels the way Lucy did, so Mad About Plaid appealed to me in a lot of ways. 

If you’re looking for a quick romance that’s both sweet and steamy, I’d definitely recommend Mad About Plaid.
