Must Love More Kilts is fun, well written, and filled with highland romance. It is the 4th book in the “Must Love” series by Angela Quarels and the second book in the series involving the Campbell sisters (Traci and Fiona) who are transported back in time to 1680's Scotland to prove whether hot guys in kilts are a myth or legend. Must Love More Kilts begins immediately after the conclusion of Must Love Kilts, with Traci married to Clan Chief Iain MacCowan, the conflict between William of Orange and King James II still warring, and tensions are high and trust is a scarce commodity.
At the beginning of Must Love More Kilts, we learn that Fiona handfasted with Duncan MacCowan and fled the marriage bed before consummating their marriage. She did so because of a Campbell family legend where a brave lass named Fiona saves her ancestor's life from an attack by a MacCowan warrior before he sets sail to Virginia. Basically Fiona realized that she must be the Fiona of family legend because she observed a scar and tattoo on Duncan's torso (as she was exploring his very fine physique immediately after their handfasting) that matched the description exactly as in the legend. The rest of the story is about Fiona resisting and then succumbing to her undeniable attraction to Duncan (he will try to assassinate her ancestor after all), and Duncan learning to trust Fiona after being scorched by past love.
Thankfully, Mary Jane Wells narrated this audiobook, as she did the prior books in the series. She is simply fantastic. She narrates as if there are several different actors being used, and has a spunk and lightheartedness that many narrators lack. I can easily imagine the setting, characters, and urgency in all the right place, and I feel like I'm watching a movie while listening to her narration. In summary, I highly recommend this audio and entire series - you won't be disappointed!

Lots of historical drama but not enough romantic tension or sassy dialogue. I waited for this one and hoped it would be as good as Must Love Kilts 1 but it was shorter and not as fun. It didn't get moving until chapter 14 when Duncan and Fiona camped out in a ground hollow and she asks for a peek under his plaid / fèileadh.
I found Fiona a more likable character than her sister Traci but Duncan was so much less than Ian.
I love Mary Jane Wells in these roles. She's young and charming, and brings sexy Scots to life in Quarles books. You'll probably also enjoy Lisa Kleypas books read by her.
