Nicknamed ‘Cowboy’ for the boots and hat he favors Hugh MacPherson has worked at UNLV as an assistant track coach for the past five years. An itch that couldn’t be scratched has grabbed hold, so during a semester break in school Hugh books a tour to the land of his ancestors in Scotland.
A small time forgotten castle is home to Laird Graeme Guthrie. The significance of his home are the Pictish standing stones within the castle grounds. Periodically Graeme allows a group of tourist to invade his home and gaze at the stones as a way to keep the taxman at bay.
Coming to Scotland, exploring his roots Hugh is looking for something he isn’t sure of. As for Graeme he has a long standing responsibility to his home and a legend taught down the ages to each laird of the Guthrie stones. Fate brings them together at the winter solstice to fulfill a destiny kept waiting long enough.
Kindred spirits are joined in mystery. An American greenhorn lends a hand to a Scottish laird in need in Cowboys and Kilts. A dangerous puzzle unfolds for the fated lovers to explore and ultimately find answers. Each piece of the mystery slowly comes to light, but unfortunately the answer is somewhat anti-climatic. Cowboys and Kilts features engaging characters, smoldering passions, and a mystery that isn’t as great as Hugh and Graeme’s romance.
