The characters are complex and well written. I enjoyed learning about their pasts and why they thought the way they did in certain situations. I could relate to the heroine well and liked the fact that she was just an average female instead of a beauty queen. The secondary characters were also a lot of fun and I found myself wishing there were more about part of them as well. In terms of the story the only thing I might have wanted is that they have a bit more of the reality t.v. show playing a

This is the second Donna Kauffman book I've read, the first was her prequel to this book! Bad Boys in Kilts, which tells the love stories of Dylan Chisholm's 3 younger bros in 3 novellas. This one however, was a novel, so it was more deep a
I'm not sure why I didn't like this book more. The writing was pretty good, and I thought the characters were real...with a realistic romance progression. He's a widower whose come back to his ancestral mansion to save it by turning it into a B&B. She's the location scout for a "Bachlorette" type TV show who wants to use his castle for filming. They meet. Sparks fly. The busybody town and his brothers stick their noses in. The tension (why they resist the sparks) comes from his past marriage ...more
Dull. Repetitive. The romance was unconvincing.

Erin goes to Scotland to scout out a location for a reality TV show, and convinces Dylan to let her rent out his castle (which he's turning into a B&B).

From the beginning, Dylan finds Erin to be plain and doesn't understand why he's attracted to her. This became a broken record, both in his mind and in hers (with slightly different tones). Now, the handsome man falling in love with the plain girl is a romance genre standard that I can really g

Surprisingly well written. The cover is nothing to judge by. Donna creates a tender story of two unlikely people coming together for an unexpected tryst that changes thier lives. A delightful find; besides, who can pass up a steamy Scot?
Excellent ending to the saga of the Scottish brothers that was started in Bad Boys in Kilts. Great modern Scottish romance! I love the female character Donna Kauffman created in this book. GREAT light-hearted read!!

Finished this book! Again Kauffman proves her mastery in storytelling! Beautiful setting and even more wonderful characters!
Brava, Ms. Kauffman!
I really liked this book. I loved how neither one of the characters was looking, or even ready, to meet someone they could fall in love with. Erin was a loner, her life defined by her job, and she fiercely guarded her independence so she wouldn't be disappointed or abandoned by anyone. Dylan was pouring himself into turning his family's castle into a bed & breakfast. After a miserable marriage and two years of being a widower, he was in no way wanting to pursue anyone, especially someone who ...more
Try as I might, I just could not get into this book like I wanted to. I really enjoyed the prequel, Bad Boys in Kilts; a nice little anthology that introduced us to three of the four Chisholm brothers. So when I heard she was going to make Dylan's story his own novel, I was excited, to say the least.

Erin MacGregor comes to Scotland to choose a location for the reality TV show, Your Prince Charming. The show is like our reality TV show, The Bachelor. She falls in love with Dylan's family home/ca
This book took me forever to finish (which is saying something and maybe not a good something). Normally I finish this type of book in a few hours. But the writing was so dense (or maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it). There was so much internalization--huge paragraph after huge paragraph and I skimmed over some of them because I just didn't care that much. I wanted to get to the interaction.
When there was interaction though--whoo boy! It was good. So that's why I'm uncertain about this book
it is actually closer to 4 stars. I just had unanswered questions when the book was done. some really good characters and some really good plot points but feels a little disjointed and missing some of the"meat" of the story
I've read this book at least twice since my original read in 2008. I enjoy both the hero and the female interest (she's funny and lovable). The story is alright and of course, I love the reprise of the brothers from Bad Boys In Kilts.

Not my very favorite DK, but I always love her strong characters.
As a full length novel, this wasn't nearly as good as her shorter ones...the heroine did a fair bit if agonizing, and wasn't particularly likeable. The author seemed to have to work a (noticeable) bit to make this a longer book.
That being said, all the better hallmarks of her other works are still here, and who's kidding who, here?? I would have liked the book fine if all I did was gaze at the cover for three days. :)
Maybe 3.5. The reason this didn't rank higher is I really didn't like the heroine enough. But the hero was yummy and very emotionally sweet! Sex scenes could have used a little more detail ;)
This was really good until the last quarter or so.
I could not understand Dylan still chasing after Erin. He offers up everything to her and she grinds him into the dirt beneath her shoes. And then he still chases her to Greece.
I'm saying it wasn't totally romantic, but it after a certain point a normal person stops reaching out to someone.

Steamy and semi-entertaining.

The characters needed more time, I think, to process each other and actually build a foundation. It seems like the story kind of jumped the sheets and then started to entertain emotionally.

I don't think I got past chapter 7 on this book, I just could not get into it. I'm not sure why because I can usually read anything!
I adored all of the Chisolm brothers but I think Dylan may be my favorite. And here I thought it would always be Brodie.
could not get into the story or relate to the characters. Liked the first book, but this one dragged for me.
Meh. 'Nuff said. The only good book Kauffman has written, in my opinion anyways. 2/5 stars.
Fell in Love with the Great Scot. Very romantic. Made me feel like I was actually in the book.
Stupid title, stupid cover, not a bad story with an original plotline.
Nice wrap up to the stories of the Chisolm brothers
Very cute story. Very cute cover!
