Too Scot to Handle (Windham Brides Series #2) by Grace Burrowes

A USA Today bestseller!

"Sexy heroes, strong heroines, intelligent plots, enchanting love stories... Grace Burrowes's romances have them all." -Mary Balogh

As a captain in the army, Colin MacHugh led men, fixed what was broken, and fought hard. Now that he's a titled gentleman, he's still fighting-this time to keep his bachelorhood safe from all the marriage-minded debutantes. Then he meets the intriguing Miss Anwen Windham, whose demure nature masks a bonfire waiting to roar to life. When she asks for his help to raise money for the local orphanage, he's happy to oblige.

Anwen is amazed at how quickly Lord Colin takes in hand a pack of rambunctious orphan boys. Amazed at how he actually listens to her ideas. Amazed at the thrill she gets from the rumble of his Scottish burr and the heat of his touch. But not everyone enjoys the success of an upstart. And Colin has enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin him and anybody he holds dear.

"Grace Burrowes is a romance treasure." —Tessa Dare, New York Times bestselling author of The Duchess Deal

Editorial Reviews

Burrowes’s second Windham Brides historical (after The Trouble with Dukes) isn’t quite Pride and Prejudice, but her bold riff on Jane Austen’s famous opening line declares her intent to come close, and she certainly has the pitch just right for a humorous Regency-era novel. Miss Anwen Windham, an Englishwoman who is fiercely protective of those she loves, and Lord Colin MacHugh, a wealthy Scottish distillery owner who’s a fish out of water in London, are both do-gooders whose current project is trying to save the House of Wayward Urchins and its incorrigible occupants. Anwen’s uncle’s sly matchmaking is all the funnier for its subtlety, and Burrowes cleverly hides clues in plain sight that indicate Colin’s mentor will become his enemy. But the romance lacks emotional friction between the leads, and no amount of purple prose about Anwen’s pink flesh can make up for its absence. (July)

This is a very robust story filled with a variety of learning experiences and examples of people with integrity as well as those who have none. Lord Colin is truly a unique character. There are parts of him that are naive but it is only in certain circumstances. Since he comes from a military background he sees situations in a clear, concise manner which allows him to share his thoughts in a way that connects with Anwen. Also, he is a thinker and works towards resolutions that cause the least impact to people. These things led to a powerful male character that is enjoyable to Female characters with a strong backbone have always interested me but Anwen is caring, kind, and hiding her true self. Her persistence on saving her boys is refreshing for women in that generation and this part of her character makes this a very interesting and refreshing story. The author's portrayal of her thinking process in doing this is well written. The heat between these two characters adds to their mutual respect for each other. I give this 4-1/2 STARS for how the author uses integrity to solve all the issues. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Colin Has Met His Match!
I generously received this book in exchange for an honest review. I've had a physical copy of this book for quite some time but I put off reading it until close to the release date because then there'd be less time to wait for the next book in the series. Bookworm logic... This book was such a pleasure to read and I was drawn in from the beginning. Anwen is one of my favorites in the family who is just as passionate about saving the Orphanage she volunteers at as she is about her family. Anwen is the youngest daughter, was very sick as a child which resulted in her family nearly smothering her with trying to keep her in excellent health since then, is smarter than the idiot foppish men who try to talk down to her and has a fiery nature with a big heart. She loves and protects the orphans under her care as though they're her children and will put anyone in their place who tries to hurt them. Colin is the second of seven kids, Scottish, a former Captain in the army, loving brother and a recently titled gentleman who is fiercely protective of those he cares for. A chance encounter with the usually quiet Anwen causes him to see that there's more than meets the eye of the red headed lass. These two unlikely people find themselves drawn to each other, working to save the Orphanage and attempting to ignore the growing attraction. Love will find a way though and what a Windham woman wants, good luck with stopping her! Things are about to get more complicated though as jealousy rears its ugly head with a handful of fops that started with a drunken joke and snowballs into something much bigger. It will take patience, cunning and honesty to not only set things right but send the foolish fops on their merry way. Full of humor, loveable urchins, the wonder of family, steamy scenes tossed into the mix and Scots which all add up to a wonderful novel. I'm so glad I read this book and can't wait for the next book in the series!

I love this series, great historical read! The Windham family is always fun and entertaining. Anwen asks Colin to help her raise money for a local orphanage he agrees. Colin was a captain in the army and now that his brother is a Duke he has gained a title as well and people are clamoring to associated with him. Unfortunately, he has also gained some enemies. This is a fast paced historical read with great characters and an entertaining story with plenty of suspense and drama. I was hooked from beginning to end. I loved it!
