    Very Exciting

    Lady Scarlet Worthington was the main reason why the sisters came to Scotland. She needed to escape from the court of King Charles and the devious man who is one of the King's favourites. Opening a school for young ladies with her sister is just what she needed. The school, however will teach things that most will not see as lady like subjects. Aiden Campbell hates all the English. He was badly burned by the soldiers, and English women cannot be trusted. They are far too fragile for life in the Scottish highlands. Both our hero and heroine have to deal with nightmares from the past before peace can be found. Treasonous plots and enemies can be conquered by bravery and trust. A very exciting story with wonderful characters. Lots of fun and danger to enjoy. While you could read this book on it's own, if you read the first book in the series you will have a better understanding of the political upheaval surrounding our characters. I loved both books and can't wait to read the next one.

    Protected by Love

    An emotional story of two people who are both scarred from the past and need healing. After fleeing England, Scarlet's sister opens a school in the wild Highlands of Scotland. Aiden Campbell hates the English for reasons of his own and the women in particular. But left in charge while his brother is away, he is to teach Scarlet and the students to defend themselves. This fierce brawny highlander has a side that is least expected, being kind and patient that just made me sigh. As Scarlet and Aiden spend time together as he teaches the children, they are drawn to each other. He has conflicting emotions with his anger which seems to bring Scarlet back more to her normal self. She was amazing as she fought to bring her fears under control and face her past. Heather McCollum has a gift of bringing characters alive and the emotions are palpable with their interactions. These two were meant for each other and as their attraction builds it melted my heart. But when a Scarlet's past shows up in the form of an evil threat, all bets are off and the battle begins!! There is so much to this story I do not want to spoil it, but trust me, this is one of the best books of the year and I recommend it highly!! What more is there to want? A handsome highlander and a cover that is sigh worthy! I cannot wait for the next book in this amazing series!! I read this through NetGallery.

    Another great book from Heather McCollum

    A Protector in the Highlands (Highland Roses School) By Heather McCollum ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Scarlet Worthington has fled from her home in England to the wilds of Scotland to help her sister run a school for ladies. Scarlet then begins to rebuild her own shattered confidence by recruiting a very fierce Campbell warrior to teach her students to protect themselves as she once could not. Aiden Campbell both infuriates Scarlet while aslo making her feel certain feelings she never thought to feel again as she works with him to hone her and her students new skills. Highland Warrior Aiden Campbell was burned in a fierce fire set by English soldiers and has finally healed enough to take temporary command of his clan. That's where his focus should be, but it's not as he's trying to learn to deal with the fiesty, beautiful English Lady who asks him to teach her students. Then when Scarlets past shows up in Scotland, her nightmares come alive, and everything Aiden has taught her is put to the test. Aiden has his own ghosts from the past that make him dispise English ladies, but this English woman shocks him at every turn and he has to fight the passion that has grown between them which is a different kind of wild fire that could prove just as deadly. Will they be able to keep fighting their passion or will they both succumb to it without getting burned? Heather McCollum is absolutely fabulous. The way she wrote this book totally blew me away. I could never guess what was going to come next and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book. Aiden and Scarlet are absolutely the most perfect couple and I really enjoyed getting to know them and watch them grow with eachother. It was so good that I felt like I was watching a movie instead of reading a book. Ms. McCollum is such a talented lady and I can't wait to read the next book from her.

    historical romance

    Scarlet has been left in charge of The Highland Roses School in the Highlands of Scotland while her sister Evelyn heads to England with her new husband. Aidan Campbell has been put in charge of security and he is rightly worried about the English coming in to create upheaval again after all that happened in book one of this series. We learned that Scarlet is leery of men, with good reason as it turns out, but in spite of this leeriness she finds herself drawn to Aidan. This book continues with the idea that a plot is in play to assassinate the King of England and as the story progresses we learn who the villains are, hear what happened to make Scarlet run to Scotland and what court life is like for those at the top of the royal hierarchy as well as those on the periphery. A woman is often considered a possession to be used and abused by husbands and those of higher station as well as by fathers and brothers thinking to use them as collateral. A woman is weaker than a man so has little recourse. That said…the women in The Highland Roses School are taught more than how to serve tea and how to read and write – they are taught to defend themselves and work together to thwart the villains before the end of the book. Fun romance that at times seemed a bit unbelievable BUT my daughter, a historian, did set me straight and told me that women did fight and did do most jobs men did and have done so through the ages even though not as much is mentioned about them as should be. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Do I want to read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Amara for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    fantastic hero and lots of intrigue

    When her sister, Evelyn, and her new brother-in-law, Grey Campbell, must take a trip to England, Scarlet Worthington is left in charge of the lady's school she and her sister are establishing at the Campbell stronghold of Finlarig. Second in command Aiden Campbell is left as acting chief of the clan in Grey's absence. When Aiden begins helping Scarlet with self defense lessons for the girls, the two begin to get to know one another. Scarlet is trying to overcome her fears and find herself again, and doesn't quite know what to do with the heat Aiden stirs in her. Aiden, with a deep hatred of Englishwomen, does his best to ignore this spark. The sexual tension and burgeoning emotional connection between these two is inescapable and their relationship begins to develop beyond what either expected. But a surprise, unwanted visit from the king himself and enemies from Scarlet's past, jeopardizes everyone's hopes for the future. There's so much intrigue and politics going on here and everyone has their own agenda. I was stressing just reading it and I couldn't put this one down after the halfway point or so. I loved it and I think Aiden is one of the best heroes I've read and Scarlet was a great heroine, no simpering miss here, despite her fears. I loved this one and I would highly recommend it. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley. Thank you! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
