Review by Xeranthemum
Peering at the world from behind her camera lens, "Plain Jane" Parker is stunned to see a handsome hunk wearing a kilt as he confidently strolls down a busy Seattle street. Her dormant libido roars to life even before their eyes meet. Aroused and intrigued, she tosses aside her usual caution and follows when Logan MacLaren beckons for a delightfully sinful one-night stand.
Logan is an exceptionally talented lover, wielding the abundant sword he sports beneath his plaid to deliver unparalleled pleasures. He reminds her to trust her instincts after reality proves they're a more perfect fit than either imagined.
Then Logan drops his bombshell: He's traveled through time to find her and wants her to stay with him forever...in medieval Scotland. Did Jane just have the most erotic sex of her life with a delusional crazy man, or is it truly possible for her one-night stand to last forever?
Kilt Worthy is an effective and mind-blowing first person account about being seduced by and falling in love with a hunky Scottish laird straight out of my most romantic fantasies.
Ms. Bybee has given Jane Parker an incredible voice and a well written and believable personality. Her internal dialogue convinced me that the heroine was smart, pragmatic, well adjusted and primed for love and passion. Although I could only know the studly Logan from Jane’s perspective, the author did a stellar job with her descriptions and emotions. I also commend Ms. Bybee for an intense and well written account of Jane’s seduction by Logan – I couldn’t read fast enough and I truly felt satisfied as a reader.
I also liked the focus of the story – the excitement, the joy and the uncertainty of finding your soul mate and the tinderbox passion that erupts when you accept fate. I didn’t need the trappings of how things worked in the magic/time travel department. This is a story of two people destined to fall in love and how they handle it. This is a story of the moment that changes everything for them and their lives become new, fresh and full of promise.
Kilt Worthy riveted me, seduced me, and kept me glued to its pages. This story is romance. It embodies the reason I read this genre and I’d recommend this book in a heartbeat.
