REVIEW – Grump in a Kilt (Kilted Hearts #2) by Kait Nolan
Posted by Book Loving Pixies
GRUMP IN A KILT
KILTED HEARTS: BOOK 2
Released March 10, 2023
A grump who lost his family…
After a devastating loss, Malcolm Niall has spent the past twenty years hiding from the world. As manager of a Highland estate, he’s built a life of purpose, caring for the land and animals. And for the past six months, his peace has been utterly destroyed by a sexy Southern whirlwind who’s never met a stranger. Worse, they have to work together daily.
His sunshiny nemesis who’s starting a new life
Nothing about Charlotte Vasquez’s life has been traditional. She never married, abandoned her corporate job to raise the son of her late best friend, and now she’s followed that grown-up son to Scotland for a chance at something new. While she’s enjoying the challenge, she could do without the attitude from the broody Scot next door.
Join forces to protect a runaway
Malcolm and Charlotte clash over absolutely everything on the renovation project they’re tasked to lead. If there’s a healthy amount of heat beneath the frustration, neither is willing to admit it. But when they discover a runaway hiding in one of the cottages, they find common purpose at last. Risks are taken and hearts expand as Malcolm and Charlotte pull out all the stops to protect Gavin from the abusive father who’d tear their unconventional family apart.
BLP REVIEW – Tracy
What’s not to love? A Grumpy Scottish bloke who wears a kilt , works hard, likes whisky and could talk the knicks off a gal!! 😉😉
Malcolm was a character. With a tragic past he was a loner and throughout the story we find out the reasons for this. I loved him tbh. I know some guys like him (not with the history Mal has) but with the brusqueness and ‘leave me be’ air. There was a bit to unpack with Malcolm and he had so many contradictory layers that were interesting to peel back.
Charlotte is like Malcolm in some ways. She’s given up a life for Raleigh and now that he’s settled she must be feeling lovely. She’s the opposite of Malcom in that she likes to talk and is social where he is reserved and quiet.
She’s quite the wee force…. Smart, quick witted, determined and loving. She won’t let anyone away with any nonsense and pulls no punches when it comes to saying what needs to be said and telling Malcom what changes she wants to make around the estate.
I enjoyed their story line, their interactions and Charlottes reaction to Malcolm’s truths. There was definitely an attraction between them and though their initial interactions were prickly they sorted themselves out and made for a great couple.
Definitely enjoying the series and trying to work out who’s gonna be falling for who next. From the teaser at the end of GiaK I cannot wait to read Connor’s story in Playboy in a Kilt.

A notorious former playboy
As heir to Ardinmuir, Connor MacKean had one job: fulfill the marriage pact that’s held his family captive for three-hundred years. Except his sister’s the one who took the plunge, and now there’s nothing standing in the way of him finding a real and lasting love. Nothing except the fact that the object of his affections has never seen him as anything more than her best friend’s little brother.
A hard-working Cinderella who doesn’t need a prince
The last thing Sophie Cameron has time for is a man. Her days are full keeping her flower shop afloat, expanding the event planning business she opened with her best friend, and keeping the promise she made to her late father to take care of her stepmother–even though Lorraine is more like a stepmonster.
A fake engagement that’s more real than either of them bargained for
The little white lie Connor told a former fling to escape his playboy reputation becomes a necessary reality when she shows up as maid of honor to plan a wedding at the estate. As a huge social media influencer, she could make or break Ardinmuir as a wedding destination, so Sophie agrees to pretend to be Connor’s fiancée. But as the lines between fiction and reality blur, Sophie begins to wonder if he’s the answer to the fairy tale she doesn’t think she deserves.

Mason “Menace” Harrison
I’ve worked up from being the single dad on the original Moonshine Task Force to the leader of the Laurel Springs Police Department. Getting the title of Chief of Police is one of the most important things I’ve ever done.
On the second official day of my command – a teenage girl is taken.
I’ve never been the type of person to back down from a challenge. With my guys, my kids, and my wife by my side I know I can do anything I set my mind to. I just wasn’t counting on it possibly tearing the town of Laurel Springs apart.
Like always, when they need a knight in shining armor, I’ll be there. And I won’t let the girl go without a fight.
If there’s one thing I promise. It’s to keep my family and my town safe. Lord help anyone who stands in my way.
“If you need me, take me,” Rina’s breathless voice echoes through the silence of the kitchen. “All that frustration? Take it out on me, big guy.”
“Remember you asked,” I warn her.
“I always ask, and there’s no one else I’ve ever trusted more than you,” she stands on her tiptoes, connecting our lips together.
“As tight as I can,” her words are a promise, as were mine.
