The Highland Commander (Lords of the Highlands #2)The Highland Commander by Amy Jarecki
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Magdalen, the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, runs a hospital for women ravaged by red-coated Dragoons infesting northern Scotland. At her father’s urging, she reluctantly attends a masquerade party to greet high society officers in cognito. She meets the brash navy lieutenant Aiden Murray who seals his love for her with an unforgettable kiss. Aiden’s loyalty to Britain and his love for Magdalen, a woman beneath his status, are tested when she is accused of trying to kill the queen. The only way he can save Magdalen is to risk his own life in a heart-wrenching escape.

Romance weaves with riveting adventure. The dialogue and narrative are masterfully crafted for the era of the Jacobite movement. Characters are well-developed, particularly Aiden who transforms from a lusty young man to a gallant naval officer rediscovering his Scottish legacy. The couple’s first explicit sexual tryst sharply juxtaposes with their tender moments at the end. The Highland Commander is a memorable tale of a couple rising with dignity and honor out of fiery trials forging their true love. A must read for those who love a multi-layered romance with a brawny highlander!

      Thanks, Christy, for your feedback. I try to fit in as much reading of other books as I can. I love all genres with a historical bent. Hope everything is going well for you. I certainly have stepped up your blog When Women Inspire and offer lots of good advice. Best wishes, my friend, Linnea Tanner.
