Christmas in the Highlands…
Not any dashing English lord’s idea of a good time. But now that Lord Alexander Mallory has won a Scottish estate in a hand of cards, he is the unlikely laird of the wild, snowy Bonniebroch. Worse yet, the ancient pile of stones comes with a betrothal. To a fiery red-headed virgin. And a curse. Alex will have his hands full honoring the first, seducing the second and breaking the third … all by Twelfth Night.
What happens when you mix up a
- a handsome former spy for the crown
- a beautiful, if unknown to the former spy, betrothed
- a betrothed who talks to her own personal ghost
- his own, newly discovered personal ghost
- an evil curse that has a time limit on being lifted
- a hot, sexy couple who can’t keep their hands off each other
You get Plaid Tidings, of course. 🙂
This is a delightful, funny and sexy romp of a story. And I’m not going to say a lot about the story, which is odd considering this blog. I just think that to say too much would take away from the enjoyment of reading about Alexander and Lucinda’s romance, and the crazy, fun, and loving things that happen at Bonniebroch.
It helps a bit to have read Plaid to the Bone, which is a novella set much earlier than this current story. You don’t have to in order to enjoy Plaid Tidings, I just think it would give you a bit of background to some of the events in this love story. You will love Brodie. Just saying – you will. 🙂
I have a container full of only Christmas books. I usually pull this out around November to get myself in the mood for the holiday season. This is in that container. Because I enjoyed it enough to re-read it every Yuletide.
