The Scotsman Who Saved Me by Hannah Howell

The Scotsman Who Saved Me (Seven Brides for Seven Scotsmen #1)

*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write and honest review for. Publication date was September 26, 2017.

Book one in a series called Seven Brides for Seven Scotsman. Well this book is sure different from anything else by Hannah that I have read. To begin with it is set in the United States. Arkansas of all places to be exact and the time frame is pretty much just as the Civil War is getting started. Who have a group of seven brothers that originate from Scotland that have settled here making a home for themselves with land that they can actually own (this is where the series name comes from of course). The oldest Iain stumbles across a women hiding with a young boy. She just happens to be injured and falls unconscious for days so he takes them both home. She hides what really happened for awhile but when troubles shows up anyways she has to tell the truth. Instead of kicking her out he decides to protect her instead and what follows is a comical romance that goes in a backwards direction from most though I have to admit he does try. I liked the building of the setting as it was quite detailed telling me how they really live. The addition of the British aristocracy as well as the war details makes for a nicely layered book that will keep the reader interested until the last page. I highly recommend it to fans of historical romance giving it 4/5 stars since I really enjoyed it.
