Looking for something to bide your time away until the next Outlander novel or season on Showtime? Look no further! Must Love Kilts is fun, well written, and filled with highland romance. It is the third book in the “Must Love” series by Angela Quarels and the first book in the series where two sisters are transported back in time.
The story begins in present day with our heroine Traci Campbell and her sister drinking a bottle of Glenfidditch while vacationing in Scotland. Traci's kilt-obsessed sister wishes she could live in the era when all men were hunky in kilts and Traci believes that hot guys in kilts are a myth. Before you can say "Jacobite Rebellion" the sisters are transported back to 1689 Scotland to see for themselves.
Just when Traci thinks she won the bet, she meets Iain MacCowan, a handsome playboy who knows he's God's gift to women. They soon engage in drinking games and in a bit of bed sport (which Traci can't remember but thought was no more than a one night stand). When she wakes up, she can't find her sister and she panics. The rest of the story is about Tracy trying to find and "save" her sister with Ian's help, which is overshadowed by the distrust of his clan who think Traci's a spy.
I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Mary Jane Wells, who was simply outstanding. She narrates as if there are several different actors being used, and has a spunk and lightheartedness that many narrators lack. There are several good laugh out load moments, and the flirtatious tension between Traci and Iain is very believable. And the romance and sex scenes were sensual and very steamy. Simply put, this audio was nicely done and I can't wait for the next Angela Quarles book narrated by Mary Jane Wells!!

MUST LOVE KILTS by Angela Quarles is the fabulous third installment in the author’s Must Love Time Travel series. In this series, her heroines embark on trips through time to find their one true love no matter where in history they may be and, along the way; readers are treated to a highly entertaining, fun and sexy heck of an escape! This installment features a computer game designer who travels back to 1689 Scotland to prove that hot guys in kilts are a myth. LOL She loses the bet. This is the story of Iain MacCowan and Traci Campbell.
Must Love Kilts can easily be read as a stand alone, but I can state unequivocally that there is no way you will be able to stop at just one! Angela’s books are extremely addictive!
This tale opens in current day Scotland. Traci Campbell and her sister, Fiona, are imbibing while on vacation and the two enter a bet. The bet wouldn’t have been a big deal except that Traci owned the means – a card case - to transport the two back in time where Iain and his cousin “rescue” the two lasses in a pub. In 1689 Scotland, it’s not acceptable for two young ladies to not be accompanied. After a fun night of camaraderie with the kilted hotties, the two girls go to bed. But, when Traci wakes, she finds that Fiona has disappeared. Traci can’t return to modern day Scotland without her!
The two main characters are well-drawn, seemingly genuine and easy to like. They are both hiding their true selves behind flirtatious facades and neither believes in true love. I honestly couldn’t get enough of their highly entertaining sexy banter and their sex scenes were page melting. Supporting characters are awesome too! Just writing this review makes me want to re-listen to their story!
One of my many favorite scenes occurred when the two made a trip together on horseback seeking Traci’s sister, and, in a foggy scene, surrounded by others also on horseback, they stealthily played a steamy game. You will want a cool drink nearby…
Mary Jane Wells returns as the narrator for Must Love Kilts. As she has with the previous installments, she positively nails the performance. Her voice is pleasant and crystal clear. To my American ears, she aces the multiple dialects including Gaelic, Scottish, English and American. . Both her male and female voices sound realistic and she exudes the proper emotions perfectly – never overdone. She consistently differentiates between the characters and delivers a polished production. I laughed, held my breath, gasped and melted to a puddle while listening to this audio. I wanted to listen to it without stopping and didn’t want it to end. Months after finishing this audio, I still get the warm fuzzies when I think about it. Her rendition is nothing short of enthralling.
This is a vividly-written, well-plotted, fast-paced, adventurous Scottish romance that mesmerized me from the first to the last with twists and turns I never saw coming. While the author states that some historical license has been taken for the plot, the historical people and places appear to be well-researched. Readers can expect a warmly satisfying ending for Iain and Traci along with a bit of a teaser regarding Fiona. Thankfully, readers do not need to wait for Fiona’s story as her story is told in the next book, Must Love More Kilts, which is already available! You’d better believe that I will be hitting play with it next!
