Title: Highland Heat
Author: Jennifer Haymore
Release date: November 24th 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance
Perfect for readers of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, Jennifer Haymore’s seductive new Highland Knights series begins with an electrifying tale of class warfare, fierce loyalties, and forbidden love.
With blood still drying on the front lines at Waterloo, Lady Grace Carrington helps an injured soldier to a British medical tent. Though she believes she’s pulled him to safety, in fact she has put them both in grave danger: Because when his brilliant blue eyes meet hers, the passionate Scottish sergeant kisses her in a way that leaves her breathless and trembling. As the obedient daughter of an earl, Grace shouldn’t be tempted by someone so far below her station. But as a red-blooded woman, she longs for so much more.
As far as Duncan Mackenzie is concerned, getting stabbed in the arm was the best thing that ever happened to him. When he wakes on the battlefield, the sight of Grace’s lovely face sets his soul aflame. As an enlisted man and a farmer’s son, however, pursuing his guardian angel means facing the wrath of London society, not to mention his own superiors in the British Army. Aye, but he’d risk all that and more just to keep her in his arms.
Jennifer Haymore is a new author for me and I love finding new authors who are amazing storytellers! She keeps your interest with details, great characters and other things that just suck you in and refuse to let go!
I was totally captured by the love story between Grace and Duncan. Normally historical romances involve a higher ranked man and in this book it’s the other way around and it was a nice change. Duncan is a very sexy man..But also humble in regards to his station and rationalizing his love for Grace. Grace is an amazing woman and loved reading how she dealt with who she is and what she wants. Just amazing.
I will be going back to read book one, because I really want to know more about Lady Claire and Robert Campbell and just because I REALLY liked this author! I will certainly be reading more from her and I hope that anyone that enjoys historical romances gives her a shot as well because it will be worth it!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
