What is Under the Kilt?

Surprise! Its a dozen brilliant, sexy stories of love, lust, wonder and suspense from the wonderfully naughty mind of favorite Ravenous author Kilt Kilpatrick, including two exciting new gems here in print for the first time. Contemporary, historical, paranormal, science fiction, steam punk and fantasy, M/F, M/M, F/F, and hot ménages - they are all here for wicked boys and girls to enjoy. Something for everyone, really. But make no mistake-these stories aren't for everybody. Just you.


Ready for a glimpse of Under the Kilt?

This collection was recommended to me by a very good friend and when I read the synopsis, I knew it was something I would enjoy. It contains twelve erotic novellas that feature a variety of M/F, M/M, and F/F scenarios as well as a handful of ménages.



Kilpatrick’s writing is bold and descriptive; subtly or not so subtly depending on the plot intertwining topics that would normally seem out of place in erotica plots. His writing is bold, blunt, and speaks plainly when narrating.


Some novellas are told in first person tense, others third person; however, the stories all read easily and quickly. His vocabulary is excellent and he does not write as though he is talking down to readers. He is descriptive, but not overly so, which helps with plot progression.


My personal favorites were “Handsome and Grateful”, a very interesting retelling of the fairy tale, “Hansel and Gretel”, that leaves readers both enchanted and excited, and “Later Days, Saints”, a novella where a young college co-ed surprisingly seduces two unsuspecting missionaries.


Every story is intelligent, fun, and his writing skillfully crosses multiple genres. The imagery and symbolism is vivid and enticing in every novella.


**This title contains strong language, explicit sexual scenarios, and should be read by ADULTS ONLY**
