Hot for the Scot,( Kilted Heroes #1), by Janice Maynard is a 2016 Kensington publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This story is a lot of fun and a must read for fans of Outlander, or those who love Highlanders, and Scottish based romance novels.

Filled with visions of Harry Potter landmarks, and daydreams of Jamie Fraser, three best friends take off for Scotland on a romantic mission. Once they arrive, they agreed to split up and search for what each one needs from this vacation. This first installment in the Kilted Heroes trilogy, centers around school teacher, Hayley, from Georgia.

Hayley’s adventure gets off to an…er..interesting start when she nearly drowns, but, is rescued by a gorgeous, hot, Scot. After he returns Hayley to her quaint bed & breakfast, she learns her rescuer is no ordinary native. It turns out her hero is none other than Angus Munro, aka “Angus the Angler”, a retired football (soccer) star.

Angus has returned to his home town, hoping to put his hard and fast living days behind him and do something meaningful with his life. However, his return home has not gone as smoothly as he had hoped, with the residents shunning him, and constantly questioning his motives.

When he meets Hayley from Georgia, he finds his life turned upside down by the sweet American who is ready to throw caution to the wind in hopes of finding a little romance… and maybe even true love.

Who among you can honestly say you have never envisioned acting out your own version of Outlander, or meeting a modern day Jamie Fraser or another of your favorite men in kilts? This story capitalizes on that particular fantasy in a modern day setting, with a light, fun, easy to read story featuring characters we can relate to.

Hayley’s vacation didn’t turn out exactly as she had thought it would when a natural disaster interferes with her lodgings and her sightseeing plans. But, it does put her in direct contact with Angus again. The sexual chemistry between this couple sizzles and burns, so It was fun to watch them fall in love, face challenges and learn to compromise and work together.

Angus’ priorities garnered my respect and his big heart will have yours melting like butter, and may even have you thinking of planning out your own Scottish excursion.

Overall, this is light, whimsical, contemporary romance that will entertain and delight you. ( )
