Waiting for a Scot Like You by Eva Leigh

Avon, 2021


Well, that was fun. And hot. First of all, this is a road trip romance which I loooooove. And this one is filled with calamity after calamity and it’s just glorious. Secondly, the heroine is a 46-year-old widow with adult children on her way to a literal sex party and the hero is her straight-laced military Scotsman escort who is twelve years her junior. I mean…take all my money.

Eva Leigh gives no effs and and so beautifully bucks historical romance norms while at the same time still infuses her stories with everything that makes romance so wonderful. Can we have historical HEAs that don’t involve marriage and children? Yes. We. Can.

Which isn’t to say marriage and kids stories don’t also make me happy. Take a look at my life and you’ll see that, clearly, I’m into that. But damn if it’s not nice to also read women with gray-streaks in their hair who are done with that part of life getting HEAs too.

Thank you Avon and Netgalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
