Aisla recognizes that he is the prince right away and tries to get away with a rescue party before he can butt in. Fortunately, Nik along with his servant Rurik, see them leave and follow. The two rescue parties join up on the first night of the trip but can’t decide on the best solution for a rescue. Ailsa wants to pay the ransom and Nik insists that it would be better to try a surprise rescue.
As the trip goes on, Nik and Ailsa are drawn to each other. And the kisses soon follow. During their trip they are set upon by brigands and Nik is shot at. During a thunder storm, Nik and his horse fall down a ravine. Most of the party has gone on ahead but Ailsa sees the accident and goes down to find him. She first thinks he has been hurt in the fall but later discovers a bullet wound. It isn’t a coincidence that Nik has been targeted twice on the trip.
While tending his wounds, the two get closer and once they reach their destination they manage to act on their attraction. Ailsa knows that nothing can ever come of the attraction – he is a prince and she is a soon to be spinster but she wants something to remember on those cold lonely nights.
After all their disagreements they settle on a plan to rescue the hostages only to find out that the kidnapper was someone they knew. Now would be the perfect time for the pair to have their Happily Ever After but Nik is a Prince and he doesn’t think that Ailsa could handle the backstabbing and treachery of the Oxenburg court.
Returning home, he is sad about leaving her behind but thinks he has done what is best for him. Tata Natasha disagrees and does what she can to get these two back together.
I hve loved the story of these princes of Oxenburg and this one is no exception. The relationships are smart and well written. The characters are real and interesting. I had some suspicions of who the kidnapper was but wasn’t sure until he was revealed.
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).
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!
