#Review: THE SCOTSMAN WHO SAVED ME by Hannah Howell




  3 of 5 stars
 
This book was not my favorite Hannah Howell book--maybe because it was set in the American frontier. Being set in America, I think it loses the wonderful setting of the Scottish Highlands. Iain MacEnroy is definitely a standup guy who has taken care of his seven brothers and built a new life for them all in the Ozarks. When he comes across a burnt out cabin, he finds Emily Stanton and her 3 year old nephew hiding in the woods. Too honorable to leave an injured woman alone, he takes Emily and Neddy to his home. He soon learns why the cabin was destroyed and why her sister and husband murdered. Can he protect Emily and Neddy without endangering his own family?

Ms. Howell is a talented author who knows how to built the heat between the hero and heroine, but I just didn't feel the spark between Iain and Emily. I kept turning the pages hoping to find it and although there is kissing, it didn't move me at all. I guess I like the Scottish Highlanders story better and will stick to those stories by Ms. Howell in the future.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
