Publisher's Summary

A brutal attack on Emily Stanton's family has left her for dead...until she is found in the woods by a handsome stranger with a thick brogue who vows to protect her. There's only one problem: As a woman with a noble English background, she has no business keeping company with such a man.

For Scotsman Iain MacEnroy, Emily's high-tone accent is a bitter reminder of the oppressive regime he left behind. The last thing he needs is to be burdened by the needs of a beautiful, blue-eyed Englishwoman. But taking care of elegant, educated Emily begins to transform Iain in ways he never imagined. Could it be that the deep divisions from the old world no longer apply in the new - and that Iain and Emily can share a passion as lush and wild as the Scottish highlands themselves?

New Series<br />

This is a new series for Hannah Howell, but as always I really enjoyed it. This series involves 7 MacEnroy brothers caught up in the Scottish clearences and leaving Scotland for America.. From what I gathered from vague language they are distant relations of Fiona MacEnroy, but she is never mentioned. At the end of the book the American Civil War has just started. The narration of this book was quite excellent. She got every accent just right, and I could tell who was from where just by her accent of their voice. All and all a fun and enjoyable listen (read).

Enjoyed the book but not the narrator

This was a different type of book for me. I normally do not choose any books that involve early American life, but this was different. The plot was a little different. You have the villain, the love story and everything in between. If only Justine Eyre was not narrating it. Oh you can tell the different voices for different characters, but the voice for the men, especially Iain is horrible. I want to read the second book, but I don't know if I could struggle through it.

Terrible

I usually love Hannah Howell’s audiobooks, but this one was just difficult to get through. I probably could have gotten through the storyline (and might have even enjoyed it) if it weren’t for the voice actress. She is horrible to listen to. I will be avoiding any audiobook that she reads for.

Good

I enjoyed all the different voices narrated by Justine Eyre. She's very good. This audiobook was set in Arkansas' Ozarks in the Old country. I thought that was interesting because that's where I live. I've read a lot of Hannah Howell's books, mainly the Murray Clan. There was some repeating which I'd thought at first I had some how rewound the audiobook, ha. And some predictable going on but still worth a credit. And some humour too.

Audio has repeated chapters

Nice enough story. Duplicates in the chapters
Frustrating to skip through. A bit predictable but entertaining

The Scotsman who saved me

Another great story by Hannah. Loved the voice of the narrator also. The story was wonderful, enjoyed the house keeper spirit. The ladies are always such strong women. Their love was so strong!

The Scotsman Who Saved Me

This is the first of seven books about Scotsmen who now lives in the Americas. Scotsman Iain MacEnroy has an aversion to any gentry from the old country. When he and his brothers come across a massacre of two people it becomes apparent that more than what they see in the beginning. Emily Stanton’s family have a price on her head. Her sister and brother in law were murdered and their son is now in her care. But her uncle from the old country is bound to kill all so that he can take over the family seat. Can Iain and his brothers be able to keep her safe? And what about the love that is growing between them? The narration kept me intrigued till the end.

Not her best!

This story lacked the depth and that feel good quality of most of Hannah Howell's books.
