It’s a hellaciously hot day in Minneapolis and all Thom wants to do is enjoy his ice cream and forget about the stacks of essays waiting for him back in his stifling apartment. Until he meets Gerry, a kilted, tattooed Welshman. The conversation is smooth and the attraction immediate, but Gerry is only in town for the night and isn’t down for anything quick and forgettable. When they meet again, hours later, Gerry knows there’s something in the air and all bets are off. Including his kilt.

I think we can all agree that ….. yes, there is something about a kilt. Or as Damon Suede said so wonderfully in Hot Head: “It’s a kilt, dumbass. It’s only a skirt if I’m wearing underwear.” AND I can attest that Gerry, the very hot tattooed Welshman in “There’s Something About a Kilt” is DEFINITELY wearin’ a kilt.

This short novella, set in Minneapolis, introduces us to Thom, a hot Italian and Gerry, an even hotter Welshman who briefly meet one hot and sticky July day in front of Sebastian Joe’s (the best ice cream in the Twin Cities!), then again at The Saloon Bar on the dance floor. They take it back to the Le Meridien Hotel for some hot n’ steamy sex, with the promise of more to come in an upcoming book. Fun, sexy, and did I mention the kilt?

Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.  Frederick Douglas

I distinctly remember that day in school when, all of a sudden, those squiggles on the page made sense and I could read. It has changed my life in ways I still cannot comprehend.

My favorite M/M tropes are friends-to-lovers, murder/mysteries, amnesia, hurt/healing and historicals. Shifters, vampires, paranormal? Meh … not in my wheelhouse, but I’m a sucker for a well-written well-plotted book, no matter the genre.

Favorite authors includes Brandon Witt, Rick R. Reed, Abigail Roux, Jay Northcote, JL Merrow, KJ Charles, Lane Hayes, Marshall Thornton and so many more.
