Overview

New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell brings the proud heart of Scotland to life in her magnificent novels. Now the seven MacEnroy brothers are about to take America by storm . . .
 
Off the New England coast, courageous Mehitabel Ampleford wields a rifle to protect her home from a brutish band of men who are after her land. She will not be intimidated, but their attacks are growing fiercer, and just as their latest confrontation threatens violence, a bold stranger appears out of the ocean mists to send the raiders packing.
 
Geordie MacEnroy has seen the ravages of war in his mountain town—and in the injuries suffered by his youngest brother; now, his restless soul is calling him to find sanctuary by the sea. His long journey to the beautiful coastline of his adopted homeland feels like a new beginning as lovely Mehitabel, so wise and self-sufficient, offers blessed hope for healing his brother’s wounds. Geordie envisions a beautiful life with her as his bride, but a woman who has fought so fearlessly for her home may not willingly surrender all for his love . . .
 
“This will be a hit with fans of historical and Scottish romances.”

I love Georgie just as much and that is why i am rating this 4-star. I love what this family stands for; honesty, fairness, and love of family and fellow man and their compassion. Just one thing bothers me about Geordie's story. Most of it was boring. I love all the family though.

Avid Hannah Howell fan, and loved the other two in this series, but this one fell short. Took a while to get interesting and just lacked the usual pizazz of her books.

not bad. I somehow missed book 2, that made it a little difficult with some things. Missing book 2 did make me not understand a few things but Can still enjoy the book. I liked the characters, and how things played out. at some points it felt as if it skipped over time from one paragraph to the next without saying. that was a bit confusing. *I received my copy for review from netgalley

When Georgie gets the urge to see the ocean again, him along with a friend and his brother set out East together. When they arrive we meet Belle, her and Geordie seemed to be made for each other. This book was pretty good overall but here's the bad part, I wish I had read the first books in this series, at times I felt a little lost. Also at times the book seemed to just drag on and on but then pick up later. Overall I enjoyed it.

This book is only so-so. I love this author, but I think she just phoned this one in. This was more novella than novel as far as pacing and plot go. Continuity with previous 2 books in the series was problematic (secondary characters the Powell brothers were Jones brothers in the previous book, and Reid was Abbie's brother, but was referred to as Emily's on pg 9). I was more invested in Robbie's subplot, and he's just the hero's little brother!! Not worth $7.99, wait and see if it goes on sale - wish I had....

After seeing the outcome of the war and what it did to his family, Geordie is ready for a change of scenery. Taking his injured brother along for the journey, they and a family friend make their way to the east coast. Once there, they stay at a boarding house run by Mehitabel, whom they meet while she is being confronted by a man wanting her land. The trio help to run him off and they soon learn that Mehitabel grew up helping her father, who was a doctor, and might have some things that could make Geordie's brother a lot less uncomfortable. Spending so much time together, Mehitabel and Geordie start to have feeling s for one another. Mehitabel isn't about to give up her home and business, but Geordie never had plans to stay. Can these two find a way to make it work? I really enjoyed this story, but it took way too long for the H/H to meet! I think because of this, I didn't enjoy this story as much as I have the others in the series. Even having said this, I've been a fan of Howell's for many years and I do look forward to the next book in the series!

Highly entertaining, sexy, engaging and emotionally thrilling romantic adventure filled with intriguing charters, witty banter and undeniable passion... was an exciting read from beginning to end. Really enjoyed every twist and turn.

This is the first book I've read by this author. I have heard great things about her and was excited to read this story. Unfortunately, I had a tough time with this book. I'm not sure if it was difficult for me to read because I hadn't read the first 2 books in the series or if it was just this story. I hate to say this, however, I almost quit reading it several times. I am glad that I stuck with it though, because almost halfway through the book the story did pick up for me. I enjoyed the interactions between Belle and Geordie as well as the secondary characters. It wasn't a waste of time to read, however, it was a little underwhelming. I will read other books by this author and I hope that the next book is more interesting than this book. *I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.

I liked how a desire of the heart can lead to your heart's desire. A trip to the coast leads to more then you can imagine.

I think I have read almost everything this author has written and really enjoyed her books tremendously. This one takes a different turn set in America after the civil war 1860's. Just to imagine all of the immigrants coming to America to start a new life and that included some from Scotland! The MacEnroy brother's so far have been sigh worthy and this one is about Geordie, his younger brother Robbie and a friend who travel to get to the sea. They encounter Mehitabel Ampleford (love that name!) who is trying to hold off a neighbor who is determined to buy her land. She is set up a life for herself with a place for people to stay while visitng the sea. Belle can really do a little of everything. Geordie and his brother decide to stay and he and Belle build a slow attraction. I mean who could not be attracted to this Scot? An enjoyable story that frames a lot of what was going on during these times when it was still hard to be a woman at times and independent. Looking forward to readng Robbie's story and the rest of the brother's tales! I read this through NetGallery and the publisher Lori Dykes

Geordie has seen the ravages of war in his mountain town and decides to go traveling by train wagon with his handicapped younger brother and a friend from the war to see the ocean.

They rent rooms from Belle. Belle and Geordie are instantly attracted to one another, they grow closer and a sweet love develops between them. A sweet romance story with a few twist.

The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away is a heartwarming story with endearing characters. It had an engaging, character driven storyline. The vivid descriptions of the different places make it easy to visualize and helps pull you into the story and keeps you turning the pages. I would definitely recommend this wonderful book and any other books that this talented author writes.

Geordie MacEnroy is one of the seven brothers who emigrated to the Ozarks from Scotland. Two of the brothers are married and they are busy building their lives and collecting orphan children and making their own. Geordie has a yearning to see the ocean so he sets off to see the Atlantic with his younger brother Robbie who's recovering from being beaten and crippled by Rebel soldiers. Their friend James is returning home to Maine so they tag along. This is the set up for this edition of the American Highland family. This story is calm and sort of falls into place as Geordie finds someone to share his life with and Robbie is healed of his crippling pain. I found it a quick and peaceful story of searching and finding purpose. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. I was so excited when I realized this was the next book in the series of the MacEnroy;s! I was also glad that we learned to use Belle's nickname as I could not figure out how to pronounce her name, Mehitabel, and it would have been harder for me to read the book! These are not quick romances but longer stories where we spend time learning about the characters and their lives. When the book starts, Geordie is going to head east as he wants to see the ocean, so his brother, Robbie, goes along, and they join their friend, James, who is headed that way so that they can all travel together. On the train, they meet a widow and her daughter, and a tragedy causes them to meet the daughter later in the book. Lots of drama going on in this book with a neighbor that causes trouble for Belle, and I was so glad that we did not see the sheriff as the paid lackey! Then, Belle's poor Auntie, Mary, gets booted from her home. Each tragic event actually works out for the benefit of each person, from Robbie's fall where he breaks his leg, Auntie getting kicked out, and the barn fire. The death of the widow was kind of both as Geordie and Belle welcomed Morgan into their care which was great but it was pretty sad and traumatic for Morgan. It was also nice to see the previous couples make an appearance in the book. Looking forward to the next MacEnroy who will meet his mate.

A handsome Scotsman who dries dishes....oh be still my heart!! lol This was such a lovely read and although I did find the start a bit long and slow, it soon picked up and had my full attention. I loved Geordie and Belle's characters, as well as all the secondary characters. I've always loved a strong heroine who can take care of herself and Belle certainly is that. As for Geordie, he's such a strong and caring man and he stole my heart at the way he cared for his younger brother. The story takes place in an era when trains were new, as were showers, and I just found it so fascinating. Now I can't wait to read the rest of the series!! I was given an ARC of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

The Scotsman Who Swept Me Away is the third book in Hannah Howell's Seven Brides for Seven Scotsmen series. Can it stand alone? A bit, but I recommend reading the first two installments before this one. I didn't, and I feel I missed a lot of major storylines and family dynamics. This is one huge family, and you may have trouble figuring out who belongs to whom. Geordie MacEnroy is one of seven brothers who moved to the U.S. when they were displaced from their tenant farm in Scotland. They now live in the Ozarks, dealing with the aftermath of the Civil War. Geordie, feeling restless, decides he wants to see the ocean again, so he and younger brother Robbie - who received crippling injuries in a previous book - head to the east coast with relative James aboard the railway. When they reach their destination and look for a place to stay, they see the beautiful Belle Ampleford confronting a neighbor who wants her property. After helping her out they rent rooms from Belle, who luckily for Robbie was taught healing by her father. They quickly become friends with Belle and her young brother, especially Geordie... This book started off very slowly and didn't pick up speed until a quarter of the way into the story. The romance between Geordie and Belle was...pleasant. I really didn't feel any passion between the two. I enjoyed the relationships between Belle and her aunt, and Geordie and Robbie. There was some suspense and tension with her horrible neighbor, plus a bit of a story regarding a little girl they met on the train. I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I had read the first two. However, the MacEnroys are a lovely family and I look forward to spending more time with them. I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and NetGalley. I received no compensation for my review, and all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.

This is my first book of the series but I didn’t have too much problem understanding what was going on. I probably would have a better understanding of who certain people in his family are but I don’t feel it's necessary to read the first two books to understand this story. This story starts off slowly with Geordie MacEnroy deciding if he wants to make the trip to see the ocean. He is doubting his choices of going because he doesn't want to leave his brothers and their families. He changes his mind when an old friend, James, stops by on his way home to Maine and decides to travel back with him. Once by the sea (about 25% in) he meets Mehitabel “Belle” Ampleford who is being harassed by a neighbor to sell her lands. She refuses. Geordie and Robbie decides to stay at her B&B while they are at the sea. I really liked Belle. She was smart, snarky, and stood up for herself. Belle and Geordie were a sweet and cute couple. I loved how flustered he would get when talking about his feelings. This was a wonderful, slow building romance. I will probably try to read the next one when it comes out, hopefully it will be Robbie's story. *ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest review. *

Hannah Howell was the first author I ever had the pleasure of reading way back when, and was the first author to introduce me to the wonders of the Scottish Highlands and the brawn warriors who were loyal and protective, this is a fabulous story, I couldn't put it down.

the dialog is not up to her earlier level. she seems bored with her subject. I am not sure I will be purchasing any more of her books. such a disappointment.
