Prince Nikolai is the heir of Oxenburg. He leaves his grandmother, Tata Natasha, with a friend in Scotland. While there his grandmother goes missing.
Lady Alisa is the youngest Mackenzie. She is witty, smart and manages her fathers estate. When Tata Natasha goes missing from her family's estate, she decides to try and rescue her. She is my favorite heroine in this series.
I laughed so much reading this book. The romance is sweet and the banter between them is witty and fun. I absolutely loved it.
Mad For The Plaid is the third book in the Oxenburg Princes series by Karen Hawkins. It can be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend the first two books in series (The Prince Who Loved Me and The Prince And I).
Most of the book is spent with Nik, Ailsa, and a few others traveling to reach the town where they believe they can find the hostages. With the exception of several bandit attacks, this doesn't make for much external action and was sometimes a little slow going. But it provided an excellent "bubble" of time for Nik and Ailsa to get to know each other without titles, money, and duty getting in the way. They also get to see themselves in different ways. Nik especially starts to reevaluate his view of himself and his life, he's not happy with the way Ailsa sees him in the beginning but starts to worry that she might be right! Aisle was a great heroine, strong and stubborn enough to not fall for Nik right away, and who realizes that love, like life and leadership, is work and compromise on both sides.
Although Plaid didn't have as much of Hawkins' trademark humor as I expected, plenty of sharp wit kept things entertaining. Every time I thought I had figured out who the traitor was, something would come up to make me question my idea and keep me guessing. Tata Natasha doesn't play as large a role in this book as in others in the series, but her tricks ensure she gets the ending she wants for her grandson in true Natasha fashion. While this book closes the series, we are left guessing about whether Karen Hawkins will bring Natasha back for future books- the door has definitely been left open on a very entertaining idea!
When I review a book, I do so differently than most reviewers. People usually have read the plot of the book on Amazon, Goodreads, etc., so they know what the book is about and those sites explain the story much better than I can. My reviews I explain why I like or dislike a book and you can make your decision from there as to whether you want to read the book or not.
One thing I loved about this story is the location. Most of it is in a dangerous forest.....dangerous because of bandits, terrain, weather and the growing relationship between Nik and Ailsa. In this story, you feel the cold and wetness from the rain and snow, aches and pain from riding a horse over steep mountains, and exhaustion from setting up camp and sleeping in terrible situations. Karen writes so beautifully that you feel like you are right there on the journey. Karen writes seduction and falling in love so well! During the journey to rescue Tata Natasha, Nik and Alisa start out not very fond of each other and end up yearning for some "alone" time! She writes in such a unique way that, as love develops between Nik and Ailsa, you can feel what they are feeling and experience their desire and yearning for each other.
Prince Nik, Lady Ailsa, AND Tata Natasha are so much fun. I love the way Nik develops from a seemingly spoiled, dull "prince"into a VERY desirable "Prince" who knows and can do more than you think. Him gather firewood? Hummm.....who would have thought he could do that?
Lady Ailsa, is a rather plain young woman with a "prominent" nose. As the story develops, you see where love develops a plain Jane, or in this case, Ailsa, into a beautiful, VERY desirable woman. Lady Ailsa has such a strong personality and is very self-sufficient.
Now, Tata Natasha, Nik's grandmother, is sort of the life of the party, so to speak. She makes the bandits sorry they kidnapped her and Nik and Ailsa thankful for her interference. Without her "help" in the story, there may never have been future Oxenburg offspring from Nik. I just love her.
If you want to read a wonderful, never dull, love story with a happy ending, do NOT miss MAD FOR THE PLAID!
