A brutal attack on Emily Stanton’s family has left her for dead . . . until she is found in the woods by a handsome stranger with a thick brogue who vows to protect her. There’s only one problem: As a woman with a noble English background, she has no business keeping company with such a man.
For Scotsman Iain MacEnroy, Emily’s high-tone accent is a bitter reminder of the oppressive regime he left behind. The last thing he needs is to be burdened by the needs of a beautiful, blue-eyed Englishwoman. But taking care of elegant, educated Emily begins to transform Iain in ways he never imagined.

In the early 80s, I watch a program “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” which was made in 1954. The movie was a musical but that was okay, for I loved that movie.
In 1850, backwoodsman Adam Pontipee comes into a town in the Oregon Territory to search for a bride. Met with ridicule by some locals, he comes upon the local tavern where he meets Milly. Convinced of her worth by the quality of her cooking and her insistence on finishing her chores before she would leave with him, he proposes and she accepts despite knowing each other for only a few hours.
Well, welcome to Hannah Howel take on the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. But in Emily Stanton’s story, her life was anything but cheerful and she certainly didn’t have anything to sing about. On the run with her orphan nephew when her older sister and husband was slaughtered. It was up to her to keep them alive. Until Ian MacEnroy along with his brother come along, to take them under their wings.
Iain MacEnroy has a long standing of protecting those who need it. When his family was run out of Scotland by an Englishwoman, and his mother and father died along the way. It was up to Iain to keep his younger brother safe.
The Scotsman who Saved Me was an excellent book. For a historical romance, you can’t get anything better than intrigue and mayhem. You will fall in love with all the brothers, and just like the movie, this one is classic.
