#Review: TOO SCOT TO HANDLE by Grace Burrowes




3.5 stars of 5 stars
  
This is the second book in the Windham Brides series I've read by Ms. Burrowes and I enjoyed this one. Colin McHugh has inherited a new English title and he tries to navigate the waters of the ton with the help of a good friend, Montague. However, when a prank gets out of hand, Colin realizes he has more enemies than he can count. Anwen Windham's passion is for the House of Urchins and she'll do anything she can to keep the establishment open. When Colin actually listens to her ideas, she begins to see that not all Scots are brutish boars. Together they must come up with an idea to save the home of these wayward boys, all the while tamping down their passion for one another.

This is another well-written book by Ms. Burrowes, however, I found plot devoid of any real obstacles. Early on, I had figured out the twist and there was no grand misunderstanding between Colin and Anwen to keep these two apart. The story line between Colin and Montague was clever, but everything fell into place much too easily including what happens to the villain of the story. I did love the orphans though. They added a much needed spice to the book.

I'm looking forward to reading Elizabeth Windham's story in "No Other Duke Will Do." I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

As a captain in the army, Colin MacHugh led men, fixed what was broken, and fought hard. Now that he's a titled gentleman, he's still fighting—this time to keep his bachelorhood safe from all the marriage-minded debutantes. Then he meets the intriguing Miss Anwen Windham, whose demure nature masks a bonfire waiting to roar to life. When she asks for his help to raise money for the local orphanage, he's happy to oblige.

Anwen is amazed at how quickly Lord Colin takes in hand a pack of rambunctious orphan boys. Amazed at how he actually listens to her ideas. Amazed at the thrill she gets from the rumble of his Scottish burr and the heat of his touch. But not everyone enjoys the success of an upstart. And Colin has enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin him and anybody he holds dear.
