True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Book Review: Some Like it Kilted by Allie MacKay


Book 4 in the Ravenscraig Legacy series

BLURB: A woman's heart needs a loving home--

Even if it's a little bit haunted.

Mindy Menlove lives in a castle that was transported stone-by-stone from Scotland. But when her fiancé dies in scandal and Mindy decides to sell the gloomy estate, her plans unravel. She must travel to the Hebrides, where she's confronted by the castle's original builder-who happens to be maddeningly irresistible and seven hundred years young.

Bran of Barra was a legendary chieftain. Since then he's enjoyed his ghostly pleasures, until Mindy's appearance disrupts them. Now, if the roguish Bran doesn't change Mindy's mind about his bonny homeland-and himself-neither of them will ever find any peace.


REVIEW: Some Like it Kilted is the fourth book in Allie Mackay’s wonderful Highland Ghost series. For those of you that have enjoyed the series so far - this is one that we have all been waiting for; this is Bran of Barra’s story! (For those of you that have not read this series before it would make a great stand-alone and I think will have you rushing out to get the others as well!)

Mindy Menlove lives in an authentic Highland Castle that was transported stone by stone to the US. She resides in modern day Pennsylvania…in a castle that was owned by her fiancé. When her fiancé Hunter meets an untimely but very deserved death (he was a cheating scoundrel) the castle is willed to Mindy. And while this would be a dream for most breathing females, Mindy is not at all in love with the Highland castle and its dark and broody atmosphere. In fact she is done with all things Scottish after Hunter’s betrayal. She wants nothing more than to sell the castle and to head for the beaches of sunny Hawaii to sip fruity drinks and enjoy the good life as far from the memories of castles and MacNeil's as possible. But it seems that a host of very Scottish ghosts that reside in the castle have much different plans in store for Mindy. They intend to see their beloved ancestral home back on Hebridian soil once more… and they will stop at nothing to make sure that it does!

Bran of Barra is a MacNeil through and through and too the very marrow of his bones. This proud and braw 700-year-old Highland chieftain has enjoyed his life and his afterlife to the very hilt! Everyone in ghostdom knows of Bran and his Island Castle of delights where food and drink flow unceasingly and women are warm and always willing. He has been entertaining and rollicking at his beloved Tower for centuries with a host of ghostly revelers coming and going on a regular basis. Aye he has lived the high afterlife as it were undisturbed for centuries… but all of that is about to change. Bran has his world turned upside down when a feisty American lass enters his realm claiming that she has come to restore his castle back to its original state and place it back on the Isle of Barra. Bran has long said that he wants nothing to do with the modern world or the modern American women. He doesn’t want to end up like several of his ghostly friends who have recently fallen blissfully in love. But from the moment he sees Mindy he knows that fate as well as the fabled Heartbreaker sword at his side have other plans for him and this 21st century lady. 

Though Mindy has sworn she will not let the handsome highlander and his homeland anywhere near her heart she has a hard time living up to that vow when every moment that she spends on Scottish soil and close to Bran makes she and her heartburn with passion. Could it be something more? And can this centuries old rogue truly reform his philandering ways and find happiness at last?

This was a great read. I have wanted to read more about Bran from his appearance in Allie’s very first book Highlander in her Bed. He and Mindy couldn’t be more different in every conceivable way but they are perfect together and I loved watching this very determined NON-Scotophil being converted every step of the way! And I especially enjoyed seeing many of the characters from the previous stories making guest appearances. We also get to meet a group of many brand new characters that I certainly hope to see again and learn more about!

Most of you know that Allie Mackay is really Sue Ellen Welfonder. I didn’t until way after I had read her first book, but if you love Sue Ellen’s books you should definitely give her alter ego here a try. And ANY true paranormal fan would love this series especially if you are a die hard Scottish fan like me! :) If you want a fun and passionate ghostly love story look no further than Allie Mackay!
