"Burrowes delivers red-hot chemistry with a masterful mix of playfulness and sensuality." - Publishers Weekly Honor or happiness-he can''t have both. Tiberius Flynn may be every inch an English lord, but smart, headstrong beauty Hester Daniels has no use for his high-handed ways - no matter how handsome, charming, or beguiling he is. They only see eye toeye in caring about the feisty little girl who is under their protection. Tiberius''s haughty insistence that his wealthy estate in England is a better place for the child than her beloved, rundown Scotland home sparks Hester''s fierce protectiveness, and the battle lines are drawn. Praise for The Bridegroom Wore Plaid , a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year: "As always, Burrowes creates a character driven novel? The slowly simmering sensuality and the strong bonds of family hold readers'' interest and hearts."- RT Book Reviews , 4 stars "Will engage readers with emotion and sensuality? Burrowes has a talent for filling traditional romance situations with depth and the unexpected." - Booklist

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riviting Highland Romance This book definitely fits within my 'men in kilts' category even though hunk Tiberius Flynn doesn't don a kilt, though I can easily imagine him strutting around in one. English Lord Tiberius Flynn has travelled to Scotland to retrieve his young niece, Fiona, from her maternal family after the death of his elder brother. He doesn't count on her family putting up a fight for her, nor is he prepared to deal with her guardian/aunt, Hester Daniels, and the effect she has on his heart. Both Tye and Hester are trying to do the right things for their respective families, but can't find a way to do it without hurting the other. As their feelings for each other grow, so does their anguish. Both are strong characters and put family and propriety ahead of their own desires. Definitely a product of the times. I particularly liked the character of Fiona's great aunt Lady Ariadne MacGregor and would like to read a book of her back story. She seems to know so much about everyone that I suspect she must have many secrets hidden away. (Should author Grace Burrowes read this review, I hope she takes this suggestion). Once Upon a Tartan is the second book in a series, the first being The Bridegroom wore Plaid. You can read this as a stand alone, but you'll want to read the first book to fill in some story lines, so you might as well start thee.
