Louisa Robertson’s father is furious when he finds her acting on stage. Now, she’s being shipped off to America to marry some stranger her father thinks will bring out the “lady” in her. Luckily, Louisa’s maid agrees to switch places with her! Her maid will marry the American and get the wealthy lifestyle she’s always wanted, and Louisa can do whatever she damn well pleases––for the first time in her life.

Highlander Ian Sinclair needs an army commission, and the only way he can get one is to safely deliver the general’s Daughter-from-Hell to her intended in America. Easy, right? It would be if the lady’s companion Louisa didn’t wear breeches and do everything the exact opposite of what he orders. It’ll be a miracle if the sparks flying between Ian and Louisa don’t set the bloody ship afire before they arrive in America.

But just when Louisa thinks her plan is going to give her the acting career she wants and a Highlander to boot...Ian discovers her secret.

Saving the Scot by Jennifer Trethewey was a unique twist to both the time period and to the characters. Each protagonist complimented what the other one lacked. It felt so right that they were paired together. Their destinies were forced but each one made it to where they belonged. I could not stop laughing.” -Urban Book Review

“This book was utter perfection.” -The Gin Book Club

Jennifer Trethewey writes some of the best Highlander novels that I have ever had the pleasure of reading and trust me when I say this one does not disappoint. Her Highlanders are strong, brave, fierce, kind, and loving. While her heroines are feisty, loyal, hellions that can only be tamed by a Highlander. To put it bluntly Ms. Trethewey is absolutely brilliant and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.” -Alison P., NetGalley

Wonderful book with extraordinary characters! This is not a book to miss.” -Megan L., Goodreads

I have read a few of the books in this series and have found them to be all very enjoyable but this could be read as a standalone. What a character Louisa was! She was certainly up for anything, including acting on the stage. So it was no surprise that she would try to thwart her father’s plans for ...more

This book was utter perfection. I was having a really awful day and just wanted something escapist and wonderful to wrap myself in like a warm hug. This fit the bill brilliantly.

Saving the Scot was a fabulous read full of adventure thanks to a very opinionated and unconventional heroine. All Louisa Robertson wanted to be is her own woman and follow her dreams of being an actress. Something that blew up in her face big time once her father, General Sir Thomas Robertson AKA t ...more

What is better than a strong Scot and a fiesty heroine that does not at first appear as she should? Not much and I can honestly say Jennifer Tretheway is a master of creating a story that will grab you on the first page and not let go until the end. But even then you will be left longing for the nex ...more
