Book Review: Too Scot to Handle


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.

TOO SCOT TO HANDLE has everything that I look for in a historical romance.  There is a very intelligent and feisty heroine,  a hero that prizes her for her individuality and a villain that is determined to get his way.  This book has the added benefits of some interesting orphans and Anwen's family who have appeared before.

I really enjoyed this book and was more then willing to get up some sleep to race to the satisfying conclusion.  Ms Burrowes has done her usual superb job with both the characters and taking her reader back to an earlier time in England's history.  I really feel that my readers who enjoy a historical romance with a bit of heat and heartwarming characters will love this book. 

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
