Review: Not Quite A Scot (Kilted Heroes #3) by Janice Maynard

In USA Today bestselling author Janice Maynard’s sweet and sexy series, three childhood friends with a shared passion for the Outlander novels and TV show decide to travel to Scotland looking for adventure—and their very own Highland heroes…

McKenzie Taylor is high maintenance when it comes to fashion, but when it comes to travel, the socialite prefers privacy to parties, and her own space to hotels.  After she and her friends arrive in Scotland and split up to pursue their own adventures, she rents a small cottage on the Isle of. On day two, she crashes her rental car. But a hero emerges from the mist to rescue her. He’s handsome, earthy, funny, and before long is making her feel desirable, not mention desirous. There’s just one problem: McKenzie’s Highland dreamboat is a motorcycle riding American.

Finley Craig knows his cute new tourist friend is stubbornly set on falling for a Scotsman. But he’s just as set on her falling for him. So he plans to give her a taste of what she thinks she wants. Because Finley suspects McKenzie isn’t as shallow as she appears. And in the process of surrounding her with his hand-picked suitors, she may just decide that American-made is best—especially when she and Finley are rained in together over one long, delicious, and very adventurous weekend…

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The expected publication date is November 8th, 2016.

I had a fun time with this story.  Although the third in the series, I found that even though I did not read the first two, it did not hinder my enjoyment of this one in any way.  It did make me want to go back and read the other two as it seems this third one wraps up all of the three stories at the end.  I can't be sure but I would love to find out.

The premise of this story is based on a comedy of errors that occur while McKenzie is travelling alone.  As someone who loves to travel and embraces the things that can go wrong when you do, I was captured by the storyline.  Not to mention being rescued by a dreamy man with some secrets, what more can you ask for?

The is chemistry in abundance for those looking for it.  Wile McKenzie annoyed me at times, I could identify with the fact that she had a strong appearance on the outside while hiding her many insecurities.  I believe many people can relate to this.  Did I mention there is an adorable dog?  I am sold!

This is a fun read for those looking for a little escape.  I will be sure to return to the first two stories as I am curious to see how they unfolded!

About the Author

Janice Maynard came to the writing life early! When her third grade short story, “The Princess and the Robbers”, won a red ribbon in a school arts fair, Janice was hooked. She followed up that early success with a more commercial piece in the sixth grade… “Why My Mom Loves To Drink Coke”. No advance for that one, but she won a six-pack of Coke… remember those great little bottles?

In junior high Janice began circulating her work to a wider audience. A dozen or so notebook pages stapled together made the rounds in some particularly boring classes, with the riveting tales carefully hidden behind textbooks.

High school meant the big time… editor of the school newspaper, the Maroon and White. Janice used her insightful editorials to delve into such meaty subjects as “locker room odor” and “why we need two-ply tissue in the student bathrooms”.

College brought lots of writing, but very little of it creative… four years later, Janice stepped into the adult world as a fully certified elementary teacher.

Despite motherhood, full-time employment, and keeping up with an “always into something” husband, Janice never lost her love of writing or the desire to be published. In 1996 she realized her long-time dream when Kensington Publishing bought her first book, Sweetheart. That exciting moment was followed by the sales of two more books in the Precious Gem line.

In the fall of 2002, Janice left the classroom to pursue writing full-time.
