Add To

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.
Each book in the Highland Roses School series is STANDALONE:
* A Rose in the Highlands
* A Protector in the Highlands


Lady Scarlet Worthington was the main reason why the sisters came to Scotland.  She needed to escape from the court of King Charles and the devious man who is one of the King's favourites.  Opening a school for young ladies with her sister is just what she needed.  The school, however will teach things that most will not see as lady like subjects. 
Aiden Campbell hates all the English.  He was badly burned by the soldiers,  and English women cannot be trusted.  They are far too fragile for life in the Scottish highlands. 
Both our hero and heroine have to deal with nightmares from the past before peace can be found.  Treasonous plots and enemies can be conquered by bravery and trust. 
A very exciting story with wonderful characters.  Lots of fun and danger to enjoy.  While you could read this book on it's own,  if you read the first book in the series you will have a better understanding of the political upheaval surrounding our characters. 
I loved both books and can't wait to read the next one.
