From the cover to the intriguing synopsis, Some Like it Plaid had me hooked from the very beginning and it didn’t disappoint at all. It’s my first time reading anything from Angela Quarles and it won’t be the last. She manages to transport the reader to a whole new time and it worked.

In the story we get to meet Ashley Miller, she has recently divorced and has struggled ever since to pay the debt that her ex-husband left her with. Her life has become chaotic and she doesn’t know what to do as she struggles to pay all that money. But that soon changes the minute she sees a Craigslist ad for an all-expense paid trip to Scotland in exchange for doing house work. Ashley quickly jumps at the change of getting out of her stressful life in San Francisco for the beautiful land of Scotland. It’s especially hard to say no to the mystery guy interviewing her for the job. They click right away and the way he expresses himself intrigues her. With that said, she sets off to Scotland, only to find herself back in time to 156 AD. She wanted a new start and she is about to get one full of potential dangers and one incredible romance that will have her questioning going back home.

After a tragedy struck his tribe, Connall as the chief’s oldest son, he is given the task of finding a wife in order to help grow the tribe. With very few marriageable women left in his tribe, his druid priest suggests for him to travel in time. With no idea where he is heading, Connell accepts and he is quickly transported to modern day San Francisco. He is amazed at how people live in the 21st century and is quickly told that in order to find what he is looking for is to post an ad on Craigslist and that’s exactly what he does. But it’s when he conducting interviews that he sets his eyes on Ashley and everything changes after that. He can see that she is outspoken and smart. This attracts him to her that most and thinks of it as an asset for the tribe. Little did he know that his future outspoken wife would end up changing his tribe forever.

I very much enjoyed reading this book! It was engaging and funny. The characters compliment each other very well and they are truly meant for one another. Connall is the overprotective alpha male that will do anything to protect Ashley yet she finds it a little hard to understand his ways when it comes to her and the tribe. His sole purpose is to get a wife and she is perfect for the job. On the other hand, Ashley wants to get away from her old life and will do anything in order to start a new life. As the characters struggle to navigate their new life together, there are things that they need to work on if they want a future. As I mentioned at the beginning, Angela Quarles did a great job describing the setting and the overall story. The ending will have you swooning for the characters and I would highly recommend checking it out. I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. :)
