A Rose in the Highland


Title: The Scottish Rough
Highland Roses School #1The Campbells #1Author: Heather McCollum
Genre: historical romance
Characters: Evelyn Worthington & Grey Campbell 

1684, Scottish Highlands

Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is resolved to build a school for ladies in her brother's newly purchased Scottish castle. But when she arrives, not only does she find the castle scorched by fire, but a brawny Highlander bars her entry.

Clan chief Grey Campbell would rather die than see his family home, Finlarig Castle, fall into English hands, so Grey must win the battle of wills with the beautiful Sassenach who flashes a bill of sale before him.

When the war between Evelyn and Grey escalates, passions flare. But outsiders have their own plans for Finlarig. After secrets are revealed, and muskets are lit, the fates of the Campbell Clan, the school, and a possible future for Grey and Evelyn are in as much jeopardy as their lives

My thoughts
Rating: 4.5
Would I recommend it? yes
Will I read more of this series? yes
Would I read more by this author? yes
If you love strong will women and hot sex Scottish lords then you will love this series , because you can almost feel the sexual tension between Evelyn and Grey . Right from the start you can almost see that they belong together and not part and while their trying to make it work , they also want whats best for their people and their land , not only is this a romance but there are secrets that need to come out about what really happened to Grey's family , its more then a romance its about family coming together and making a new one and a new start . With that said I want to say thank you to Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
