I hesitate to pick up anthologies as I have been disappointed too many times. Not with this one. First! Kilts! Men in Kilts! More Men in Kilts! Did I say I love men in kilts?
Of course some of the stories were better than others, but none were bad nor boring. I found 2 or 3 new authors (to me) that I plan on checking out. There are characters in some of the stories that I would love to revisit.
An enjoyable read.
'Plaid Nights Anthology,' edited by Andrea Dalling ReviewThe Plaid Nights Anthology, edited by Andrea Dalling, is a collection of stories that share the theme of the plaid kilt, either in homage to Scottish heritage or just for the fun of it.
They are all M/M romances and the men vary from brawny highlanders of long ago to creatures of the dark. The stories in Plaid Nights cover many genres from contemporary to paranormal.
It doesn’t matter if you like your stories sweet or you prefer something a little darker, you will surely find something tasty in this anthology.
Plaid Nights starts with “Tossing It” by Rob Rosen. College friends Greg and Tom find themselves at a highland festival together and then find themselves under the kilt of the winner of the caber toss.
If you’re interested in the paranormal, “Sir WW” by Angelique Voisen introduces a time-travelling vampire who has a taste for ropes.
“Feumaidh Mi Ruith (I Have to Run)” by Missouri Dalton gives us a thief named Cary who steals from the wrong guy—but maybe this doesn’t turn out to be such a bad thing.
Also in this genre is “Kilt in the Closet” by Logan Zachary where Jeff asks a real estate agent for his help to solve the mystery of the kilt-wearing ghost in his closet.
If you are interested in contemporary romance, “Whiskey and Want” by Megan McFerren has Andrew wearing a kilt for a bachelor party in Texas, where he attracts the attention of an acquaintance. Things get creative between rugby friends Jeremy and Riley in “Some Like it Scot” by Julia Talbot.Read more ›
I’m seriously not complaining, but who knew that Americans celebrate Scottish holidays in kilts? My favourite stories in this collections were the contemporary nods to Scottish culture and heritage. My least favourite were the attempts at accurate Highlander historical romance.
I wasn’t very keen on any of the more earnest stories - m/m short stories lend themselves better to humorous erotic hook-ups than HEAs.
My absolute favourite story was the first one, Rob Rosen’s irreverent Tossing It where two college students get to blow an enormous Scotsman during an American Highland Games. Any Scotsman would approve of the raunchy tongue-in-cheek innuendos and good natured filth.
Megan McFerran’s Whiskey and Want (though the Scots spell it Whisky) was also great. Less humour but another free-spirited hook-up, this time outside a Texas bar hosting a bachelor party with kilt clad guests. Hot men, hot sex, but a little too much talk for my liking.
Elizabeth Coldwell’s Perfect Working Order offered our only contemporary Scot. Miles is a Scottish rugby supporter who walks into Gary’s bar. He was the one who got away at Uni and the pair are quickly off for some pretty steamy sex.
Julia Talbot gives us another American Scottish celebration in Some Like it Scot. Riley is an American but he still has an accent - and a kilt. This isn’t a hook-up story, but one of attraction attraction and a sweet fumble towards a relationship. The characters are well-written and the premise is great.
Some of the historical writing was inaccurate and far too soppy to be believable.Read more ›
