Early Audio review: When you love a Scotsman - Hannah Howell

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:
Another damsel in distress and one that is saved by Union soldiers (but she can shoot better than them but if the odds are against you then they just are.)

Abigail was kind, a good shot, had learned medicine from her dad, and well I can not say anything bad about her,

Matthew, oh these brothers, is that how you court a woman? really hope the next brother gets a woman who says, nope! We shall talk a bit first. But I mean he is a sweet guy, the best, just, ask man, ask.

The war is raging on, though they do have it somewhat better where they are. Mostly marauders in these hills. But there is fighting, death, mayhem, but also a blossoming romance. Sometimes you just have to go for it among all the rest.

And the epilogue, aye, I liked that.

Narrator: Justine Eyre
I do like her voice, and her Scottish accent, lol, aye it makes me lol. Her range is perhaps not the best but she is so pleasant listening too.


  1. I love Justine Eyre. She narrates the Guild Hunter series that I love by Nalini Singh.

  2. Oh thanks for this it's been quite a while since I've read her and a Scots on audio yes please !

  3. I enjoy this narrator so I'd probably listen.

  4. I like that she can shoot better than them. Damsel to the rescue?

  5. LOL! You make me laugh. xD "But I mean he is a sweet guy, the best, just, ask man, ask."

  6. Oh this sounds just wonderful here. So glad to see that you liked it. I will be reading this one next.

  7. Aye, Justine Eyre is a great narrator, she's done a lot of sci-fi and fantasy too, and I love her :)

  8. I struggle horribly with historical romances featuring Scotsmen / based in Scotland... Is it weird to say that I think the disconnect is because I'm Scottish and the way our dialect(s) and history is typically portrayed makes me die a little inside? lol

    1. I I totally get that! They are so over the top

  9. It sounds good and I'd like hearing the Scottish accents on audio too.

    1. I realyl do not care of they mess them up cos they still sound good to me

  10. I don't think that I have read this author or listened to this narrator. Sounds like one to try.

  11. I picked up Jack by Grace Burrowes, so I'll be listening to my first historical romance early in 2018!
