He leered at Isabella, his haggis-laden breath heavy on her neck. "It's time, lass," he whispered, "that ye larned what a real man was like."

Isabella made a pretense of struggling under the mighty Scotman's embrace. At least, she thought to herself, I shall finally see what they keep under those sexy little kilts of theirs.

Well these are all very good, but I just have one question: will you be sharing that prom picture with your readers anytime soon?

I also think it's high time the fashion world brings the kilt to the forefront!

Why the surprise about Robert the Bruce and his version of the Highland Fling? Wasn't something similar alleged in 'Braveheart' a travesty of history if there ever was one?

This is Hollywood history at its worst and Heaven help us if it gets its hands on Penman's take on R3. The Tudors and Rome were bad enough. For the record Atia was a very respectable and religious lady who most definitely would NOT have been called Atia of the Julii: Roman ladies took their nomenclature from the paternal side not the maternal.

I've heard of the term 'putting bums on seats' but does Hollywood really think giving us bum history is the best way to do it?

And that's before I think of all those historians who've been selling us the bum steer for years and whose books should be displayed on the fiction shelves!!
