About the Author

Jennifer Trethewey is an actor-turned-writer who has moved her performances from the stage to the page. She would, if she could, live half of every year in Scotland. It’s the next best place to home. She never feels like a tourist in Scotland “because the people there always seem like they are expecting you, like you are a long-lost cousin come to visit.” Her love for Scotland has been translated into her first series of historical romance novels, The Highlanders of Balforss.

Trethewey’s primary experience in bringing the imaginary to life was working for one of the most successful women’s theater companies in the nation, where she was the co-founder and co-artistic director. Today, she continues to act but writes contemporary and historical fiction full-time. She lives in Milwaukee with her husband. Her other loves include dogs, movies, music, good wine, and good friends.

I truly enjoyed reading this and very thankful I didn't live back then, or I have a feeling there would have been more Louisas. What a wicked thinking and delightfully naive woman lol. Oh, Ian was to die for, so manly, and fair to everyone. As luck would have it, he and Louisa fell for each other, both having secrets. Lies really do affect so many, but it ends well and the journey had all the feels, making it a fast, fun and sometimes intense read. I received an ARC thru NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are strictly my own

This is the 4th book in the series but can be read as a stand-alone. Ian wants to return back to the army but instead is ordered to take the Captains troublesome daughter to America to be married off. Sparks are flying between Ian and Louisa even though she doesn’t do anything he asks. What will happen when he finds out the truth about her? Fast-paced fun read with plenty of drama and great chemistry. An entertaining historical read.

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. The heroine was a breath of fresh air. Her fowl words at times and her personality shined like bright stars in a dark sky. She was bold when it came to running away from her dad and the prospect of marriage. A career in theater was what she had wanted. Until she figured out, that it's not all it was cracked up to be. But until she discovered that, she is one determined mess insisting on doing it all.  Their actions have consequences for all involved. Her lovely woman companion is her best friend. Both scheme together to get what they want. However, their lies finally catch up and then it's an emotional mess. I was not sure where the plot was headed. Jennifer Tretheway, never disappointed me. I was intrigued, entertained, and lost within her creative yet charming world.of fiction. Men can be stupid at times. It takes a good woman to show them what they've been missing and what they needed. Louisa was that woman for her ship captain. The Scottish characters made this enjoyable. Louisa went beyond all other heroines. Both intellectually and emotionally, Lousia was the star. She gave so much to those she cared about. The sea captian was also, a knight in shinning armour. Overall, I could not stop reading this book.

hip Captain Ian Sinclair’s true desire is to be a soldier again and when his old commander calls him to report he’s hoping to be recommissioned to the army. Louisa Robertson’s father, General Robertson, is known as the terror of Tartan has had enough of her embarrassing him at every turn. He’s decided that her taking to the stage is the last straw and he’s now sending her to America to marry a man she’s never meet. He calls on of his previous best officers for the mission to take his daughter known as the “the daughter from hell” to America with the promise of a commission when he returns. Louisa true to her nickname makes her own decision to switch places with her maid for the voyage and escape marriage to a man she’s want to marry. I love these two together Louisa throws convention to the winds and Ian is all order and orders, but what’s he to do with the stowaway on his ship he’s become attracted too. I voluntarily read and reviewed this amazing book.

I really enjoyed reading this adventurous read and a journey across the Atlantic. What seemed like a simple deception, playing a role, soon turned into a much-complicated problem because now there is no turning back. Saving the Scot is a sweet and romantic read. It is a story about two people who are doing something they don't want to do, they have envisioned their lives different, yet fate always intervenes. All Louisa Robertson wants is freedom to pursue a carrier is acting. Unfortunately, her father and brother do not agree. She is notorious for causing trouble in her home town and everyone talks about her. Ultimately, her father has had enough and decides to ship her off to America. Where she will marry someone she hasn't even met, let alone love. But not to worry because Miss Louisa is never short of ideas to get out of such troubling situations. Along with her maid, she hatches a plan to deceive everyone and at last, gaining the freedom she has always craved. Ian Sinclaire wants to return to the army but now he is saddled with two women and it is his duty to see that they reach America safely. Their journey is not going to be an easy one, he is sure of that, but he did not anticipate added complication of his feelings for Louisa Robertson's companion. The woman does something to his heart and he simply does not know how to ignore his feelings. Dare he make a move? It isn't like she expects hearts and flowers. Maybe they can both enjoy each other's company and little romance before they must part ways. It's a very entertaining story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I think it is a must read for historical fiction fans.

This is thrilling and captivating story that draws you in from the start, the author has a fabulous way of making you think you are not just reading but actually in there like you are part of the set. I received a copy from Netgalley and I am voluntarily leaving my own honest opinion

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 next fabulous tale! Louisa has finally pushed her father to the end of his tolerance when he finds her acting on stage dressed as a man. What could be wrong with that? You see her father is a General and known as the Tartan Terror. He is determined to get his daughter married and under control, so he enlists one of his former men to make sure she gets to America by ship to marry a man of his choice. Ian Sinclair is that man and he desperately wants his commission back so he can return to the army. Simple right? Just get the girl to America and come back for his reward. Of course things are never that easy and Louisa thinks up the plan for her maid to act as her and marry the man in America and she can go to New York and become an actress! The adventure begins and I will not spoil it for you but you need to read and find out what happens. Be assured you will smile with the humor and be intrigued by Louisa and Ian. I can only hope that the next book in this series comes out soon because I so loved this one! I read this through NetGallery. Lori Dykes

I loved Louisa and Ian's story!! Ian just needs to get his former commanding officer's daughter across to America and he will be given a much wanted assignment. He has been warned that the daughter will be a handful, but is pleasantly surprised when she doesn't' cause any trouble. It is her companion that he keeps butting heads with. Louisa and her ladies maid have exchanged identities. Her father has sent her off to get married and all she wants to do is be an actress on stage. Her ladies maid would love to get married and live a life of luxury and jumps at the chance to make her wildest fantasies come true. But as Louisa gets closer to Ian, she hates that she is lying to him. What will happen when the truth comes out? This was a great story! Each book in this series got better than the last and this was definitely my favorite! I loved watching the interactions between Ian and Louisa. I was laughing out loud throughout the book! I would definitely recommend reading the rest of the series before this one as I think it will make the story much more enjoyable, but it is not necessary to throughly enjoy it! I'm hoping that Trethewey is continuing this series or doing a spin off of it as I want to see the HEA of many secondary characters in this series!
