Descripción

With few other options, Scarlet Worthington flees from her home in England to the wild Highlands of Scotland to help her sister run a school for ladies. There, Scarlet begins to rebuild her own shattered confidence by recruiting a fierce Campbell warrior to teach her and the students how to protect themselves from villains and scoundrels. The intimidating Aiden Campbell both infuriates Scarlet and ignites a fire inside her as she works closely with him to hone her new skills. Burned in a fierce fire, set by English soldiers, Highland warrior, Aiden Campbell, has finally healed enough to take temporary command of his clan. That's where his focus should be instead of dealing with the feisty, beautiful Sassenach who asks him to teach her students. When Scarlet's past stalks her up into Scotland, her nightmares come alive, and Aiden's lessons are put to the test. With his own ghosts from the past making him despise English women, Aiden fights the inferno of passion that's grown between them, a different kind of wild fire that could prove just as deadly.

    A Protector in the Highlands by Heather McCollumHighland Roses School #2Scarlet 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? YesDo I want to read more in this series? YesThank you to NetGalley and Entangled Amara for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    The Highland Roses School is quickly becoming my favorite historical romance series! I enjoyed the first book in this series, A Rose in the Highlands, but I loved this book even more! I was also looking forward to reading A Protector in the Highlands because it is Scarlet’s story. In book one, Scarlet ran from England like the hounds of hell were after her. Her sister, Evelyn, had wanted to leave for her own reasons but it was Scarlet’s frantic desire to leave as soon as possible that spurred on their journey to Scotland. It was never truly disclosed why Scarlet was so fearful or why she felt the need to leave but I was dying to understand her motivations. Now, I do understand and, oh be still my beating heart, was this story emotive.Scarlet was a woman who had been traumatized and unfortunately it had caused her to pull into herself. She no longer acted like the sister that Evelyn remembered but Evelyn was hopeful that, given time, Scarlet would come around. Just when Scarlet was starting to feel safe, though, she was pulled into a situation that brought her past fears rearing back up again. Fortunately for her she had someone who was on her side, even though that in of itself was surprising because he had made it very clear that he did not like her. Well, he might have acted like he could have cared less but that was clearly not the truth.“Look at me,” Aiden whispered, and she blinked open. “See who I am,” he said, his eyes kind and clear. “A man ye can trust not to take anything from ye that ye don’t want to give, Scarlet.”Aiden Campbell was not a fan of English people, women in particular, but his reasons were deeply personal. Despite his attraction to Scarlet he was determined not to see her as anything more than a responsibility but that all changed when he saw a side to her that brought out the protector in him. Oh Aiden, ? ?! What an amazing character you are. He had his own deep hurts and resentments but he did not let that stand in the way of protecting Scarlet or for feeling anger at the treatment she must have endured to cause her to be so fearful. I never thought that I would be swooning over his character because he was so unlikeable in the prequel, but his story was moving and I couldn’t help but love him by the end!Scarlet may have started out as a scared lamb but soon she learned that she could rely on herself, to find her inner lioness and be a victim no longer. It was wonderful to see the changes that she brought to the Highland Roses and it made the story both fun and entertaining! The connection between Scarlet and Aiden still makes my heart beat faster and feel all sorts of swoony inside. I did love these characters but it wasn’t just Aiden and Scarlet that made this story amazing. I loved each of the Highland Roses that took part in this story. Each woman contributed to the overall plot and I can always get behind a book that has strong female characters. There is so much to love in A Protector in the Highlands and I highly recommend this story! I loved it!This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

    Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) Can I tell you that I loved this book. I love highlanders and had stopped reading this genre because I got caught up in others but I was happy to read this and so enjoyed it, am going to start back on my highlanders, they are soooo sexy. We meet Aiden, and I am assuming that I missed the first book so I intend to look for it. Again let me start again we meet Aiden part of the Campbell clan and he hates anything English, due to his mother abandoning his family to go back. We also have Scarlett and she is English now living in Scotsland with her sister and her brother. While her sister goes back to England to deliver something Aiden and Scarlett are in charge of the Castle and her school "Highland Roses" and this is when the real fun begins. I loved these two, so please do yourself a favor and grab a copy! Enjoy!
