Kit Woodhouse’s matchmaking business is such a success, she’s expanding to the Highlands of Scotland where the hot, prosperous, and kilted are anxious to connect. Now, looking to fill her stable with eligible bachelors, Kit’s arrived in Gandiegow to recruit potential Real Men of Scotland. It’s not until she meets her tour guide that she discovers just how real they can be.

With his sexy grin, jeans, and black wellies, Ramsay Armstrong is an unpolished hulk of a Scottish fisherman—and a skeptic when it comes to romance. Not exactly a man of “pairing attributes” when talking marriageable matches, but he does make Kit’s heart beat a little faster. Maybe it’s the scent of the sea in his hair. Maybe it’s the challenge. Maybe it’s the thrill of the unexpected. Then again, maybe it’s love.

What happens when you can't get over the fact that a main character is a total douche or did something really douchey?

I like the idea of Some Like it Scottish, but I found the main male character to be such a jerkface jerk at the beginning of the story that I, found it difficult to forgive him, and if I can't forgive him how am I supposed to believe the heroine does?

Ramsey, goes out of his way to destroy Kit's business because it conflicts with what he wants to do. He goes out of his way to undermine her professionally, to make her feel small and generally unwanted, and it works. Yet somehow Ramsay is redeemed by the power of love or Kit's magical boobies or both, turns from his wicked ways, ensures Kit's success, fulfills his dreams and rides off into the sunset wearing nothing but Kit and a kilt.

I almost didn't finish this book because Ramsey was so awful and Kit was so stupid (or entranced by Ramsey's turgid member) that she easily looks past the fact he tried to ruin her and her business.

The rest of the books is lovely, the setting of Scotland is deftly described, side characters are interesting and add depth to the story, while the premise is intriguing. So, if you like books with Scotsmen, descriptive settings and redemption you will probably like this book. I, myself, wanted to push Ramsey into the freezing ocean and give Kit a good shake.

  1. It sucks that the author crossed the line with making this guy such an ass that there was no going back. How can a reader get past that? Great mini. :)

  2. Haha, that's unfortunate that he was so unlikeable. I'm impressed you read all the way through.
