Present Day, New Hope, PA
Margo Menlove has dreamed of all things Scottish since childhood. When Margo wins a Highland vacation, it is a dream come true or maybe not. The Highland tour is a huge bust for Margo, and the blowhard tour guide is giving Margo a headache! When an opportunity presents itself to venture off Margo takes it and gets more than she bargained for. A beautiful stone catches her eye on the very spot where legendary Highland warrior, Magnus MacBride aka the Viking Slayer, was said to have battled Viking raiders. Then an ominous presence takes Margo on a journey back in time, and Margo finds herself face to sword with the very Highland warrior she has envisioned so many times, Magnus MacBride!
Magnus MacBride has vowed vengeance on all Norsemen since they raided and murdered his betrothed. After losing his beloved Liana, Magnus has been consumed with rage, and nothing and no one has been able to gentle his tortured soul, that is until a drenched naked woman emerges from the sea, and magically makes the Vikings he and his men are battling disappear! The sea witch is the luscious embodiment of the dream woman he has been shown by his clan seer, the woman who Magnus has made erotic love to, at least in his visions. At first Magnus cannot believe a word Mar-go the too-rist says; but then Magnus begins to become more infatuated with her as he whisks her away aboard his ship. Wild uncontrollable desire ignites between the two, but danger lurks unless they stand united. Now that Magnus has claimed Margoís love, he may lose her to the curse of the evil sorceress responsible for bringing Margo back in time!
Highland romance readers love a hot hero in a kilt, and Allie Mackayís latest time romp Must Love Kilts is based on this premise. However, with that said there are a few glitches in this story. Margo and Magnus donít meet until almost halfway through, creating a very lackluster beginning filled with non-essential scenes that could have been combined to shorten the wait to see these two finally get together. When they do itís almost as if it wasnít quite worth the effort of getting there.
