We’re so pleased to welcome author KC Burn today to chat a bit about her new book Tartan Candy. Enjoy and be sure to watch for details about the giveaway she’s offering just for you.
Hello! I’m KC Burn, and I’m here to talk about Tartan Candy, my new novel featuring a kilted ex-porn star and a blue collar worker, set in Orlando.
Who doesn’t love a kilt? More specifically, who doesn’t love a hot guy in a kilt? I know I’m susceptible. One time, back in my clubbing days, a group of guys wearing kilts showed up. Since it was the same weekend as a nearby Scottish festival, I assumed they’d been there. Until they started chatting up me & my friends. Turns out they were actual Scottish footballers. We were dying. Of course, since I was already dating the man who’d become my hubby, I was only window shopping, but OMG, they were seriously hot.
Obviously, it was only a matter of time before I wrote a book featuring a kilt-wearing hottie. In Tartan Candy, Raven is an ex-porn star whose popularity arose partly from his love of kilts (and partly from his flexibility). Raven’s a Floridian native, so his look isn’t typically Highlander, and he adds a punk/goth flair. And if you knew the sorts of clubs I frequented back in the day, this wouldn’t surprise you one bit. I love sneaking guyliner on some of my characters, because it’s a look I just adore.
So tell me… does a man in a kilt do it for you? Is there a certain look or style for a guy that will make you melt?

Blurb: Finlay McIntyre (aka Raven) is a successful adult film star with a penchant for kilts, until an accident cuts short his stardom and leaves him with reduced sex appeal, lowered self-esteem, and no job. He knew his porn career wouldn’t last forever, but he wasn’t prepared for retirement at twenty-eight. While trying to figure out the rest of his life, Raven attends a high school reunion. That’s when a malfunctioning AC unit in his hotel room changes everything.
Caleb Sanderson, an entrepreneur with his own HVAC business, has no idea what to expect when he steps into Raven’s hotel room to fix his AC unit. They’re attracted to each other, but Caleb, closeted, can’t afford a gay relationship, not with his mom pressuring him to produce grandchildren. If he wants to keep Raven—who no closet could hold—he’ll need to tell his family the truth. But Raven has a few secrets of his own. He refuses to reveal his porn past to Caleb, a past that might be the final obstacle to Caleb and Raven having any kind of relationship.
