Publisher’s Description:

1805727916From New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell comes a brand new series featuring the MacEnroys, a family of seven strong, seductive Scottish brothers who have come to America with nerves of steel—and who will take no prisoners when it comes to love…  
 
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?

Publisher’s Description:

New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell sweeps readers away with the 1611808055passion-filled adventures of the MacEnroy brothers, seven daring Scotsmen who take on America in her most turbulent days—and capture the hearts of the ladies each is destined to wed . . .

With danger closing in from all sides, Abigail Jenson works tirelessly to protect her small Missouri farm. She doesn’t require saving—but a handsome officer appears on horseback just as ruthless marauders set her cabin ablaze. With nowhere else to turn, Abigail allows the soldier with the seductive Highlander’s gaze to escort her to shelter in a nearby town.

Matthew MacEnroy was reluctant to join his adopted nation’s conflict—until an enemy attack wounded two of his brothers. Bravely doing battle has its price when a proud, independent beauty comes under his watch—no military man can risk the powerful emotions their attraction has unleashed. But when Matthew himself is caught in the crossfire, Abigail leads their long journey home to MacEnroy valley . . . and her caring touch sparks the promise of a bold future together.

My Thoughts:

This is book #2 of the Seven Brides/Seven Scotsmen series. Book #1, The Scotsman Who Saved Me was released September 26, 2017. I have read many Hannah Howell books in the past, so having not read book #1 of this series, I was surprised how much it has to do with the Civil War. I used to read a great deal of historical romance situated during that trying time in our history, but had drifted away from American Civil War Romance as it had lost it’s appeal to me.

Despite the time frame I still enjoyed this read. Hannah Howell writes Scottish based Historical Romance like no one else. Her writing style is unique and even though I would not usually read anything from this era in our history, this book is entrancing and well written.

It has both heartbreaking and joyful moments and very precocious children left orphaned by the war. Abigail, our heroine is a strong and independent character and Matthew, our hero is reluctantly fighting a war in his adopted country. We have both wholesome and unscrupulous characters. There are passionate moments and Innuendo about physical relationships other than those between our hero and heroine.

I recommend the read. Even if you have not read the first book in this series, this one reads well as a standalone title.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. The author writes sexual encounters like no other.

They can be steamy at times but you don’t feel like you’re read a pornographic scenario.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily. All thoughts and opinions provided are my own.

Publisher’s Description:

Harry Browning was a motherless guttersnipe, and the morning he came across the 617082599elderly Lord Preston clinging to a sheer rock face he didn’t believe in fate. But the fates have plans for Harry whether he believes or not, and he’s not entirely sure he likes them.

As a reward for his bravery, and in an unusual moment of charity, miserly Lord Preston takes him on. He is taught to read, to manage the vast and crumbling estate, and to behave like a gentleman, but Harry knows that is something he will never truly be.
Already running from a dark past, his future is becoming increasingly complex as he finds himself caught in a tangled web of jealousy and revenge.

Temptation, in the form of the lovely Lady Clarinda Bow, is a constant threat to his peace of mind, enticing him to be something he isn’t.

And as those close to the Preston family begin to die, Harry may not have any choice.

Publisher’s Description:

897472126Would you recognise love when you saw it? 

Cordelia Honeyfield has been sent to the seaside ‘for her health’ – and the last thing she wants is the meddling nonsense of a country doctor. Her wild spirit is frowned upon by the ton, and familial embarrassment now means she’s stuck at the beach in a brisk March wind, waiting to meet this doctor as she promised her father.

Dr Timothy Walsingham is about to meet a new elderly patient – a Miss Honeyfield whose letters have had him in stitches. As he waits by the sand, a beautiful woman catches his eye, and he begins a conversation that will distract him from his practice, from his patients . . . and his reason.

Can a chance meeting of mistaken identity lead to something more? Will Cordelia ever reconcile with her family – and can Dr Timothy Walsingham make this springtide meeting one that they will both never forget?

A Springtide Meeting is a sweet Regency romance about the strange coincidences that fate deals us, and whether we are brave enough to take them.
