The Valiant Highlander (Highland Defender #2)

When Sir Donald MacDonald, Baronet of Sleat meets trews-wearing, musket-wielding, redheaded Mary of Castleton, he’s completely flummoxed. Such a woman would never fit in to his aristocratic way of life. And Mary wants nothing to do with her father’s wishes for her betrothal. Indeed, the two agree on one thing: They are completely, utterly and inarguably incompatible.

But when Mary is abducted from Dunscaith Castle and spirited away in Sir Donald’s sea galley, the baronet has no choice but to mount a rescue. When his plans are thwarted at every turn, Donald and Mary are thrown in a tumultuous a race for their very lives. Though destiny brings them together, Don must face the truth smoldering in the recesses of his heart. Can he cast aside his ideals and declare his love for the saucy Highland lass?

 My Review:  So far this series is batting 1/1. I like this book better than the first “The Fearless Highlander”. Even though the setting is the same, it can be read as a stand-alone.

They say that opposites attracts. However, they must not have picture Sir Donald MacDonald and Lady Mary. When they first meet Mary was teaching her brother how to shot. But Sir Donald thought Mary was a lad and not a lady. But when he learned the truth, he couldn’t see himself tied to one as Mary. Until Mary was abducted. Forced to spend time together well staying ahead of a villain. Donald and Mary soon came to realize that they were made for each other.

The Valiant Highlander was definitely a good read. The story flowed smoothly with little to no lag time. The Setting was in Scotland 1695 Isle of Skye so three years has gone by since the happenings in The Fearless Highlander”

The Fearless Highlander (Highland Defender #1)

Description

Heir to the most notorious clan in the Highlands, Hugh MacIain hides his identity while imprisoned in the bowels of Fort William’s hell. Aye, this braw warrior has endured horrors that should have seen him dead, though now it appears it’s the bloody flux that will send him to Satan’s fire. Optimistic, competent, and captivating, Charlotte Hill takes pity on the fevered prisoner sprawled atop a cot in the fort’s surgery. When finally the Highlander opens his eyes, he seizes her heart with a pained stare. Truly, this is no commoner—but in 1692, a warrior loyal to the Jacobite cause and the daughter of a government colonel may as well be worlds apart. After his escape, Hugh snatches his chance to woo the lass, until disaster strikes. While war and lust for vengeance force Charlotte further from Hugh’s arms, the couple’s romance seems aimlessly adrift on the open sea. Before they sail too far apart, can the tender love of an English lady coax a determined Highlander from his path of revenge?

 

My Review: The Fearless Highlander is a historical romance set in 1692 Scotland. Amy Jarecki gives as her rendition of the Scottish turmoil, tragedies and betrayals at Fort William.

Hugh MacIain a prisoner of circumstances who’s at death door is healed by Charlotte Hill his enemy daughter. As Hugh spends time with Charlotte, he comes to find that even though she’s the daughter of the Colonel she doesn’t always agree with her father.

Our hero and heroine are forced to put aside personal allegiances and to overcome numerous obstacles.

I’ve only read one other book by Amy Jarecki (Highland Knight of Rapture) which I was basing this story to follow not part of that series but the overall tone of the book. Whereas, Highland Knight of Rapture was more about the romance of the two main characters…The Fearless Highlander was about the plight or history of that time period. Even though to me the romance took a back sit in The Fearless Highlander, trying to intertwine romance in a time period where romance was not a foregone conclusion is never easy.

Highland Knight of Rapture

Where have I been, that I never read the beginning this fantastic series. I had the pleasure of reading Highland Knight of Rapture (Highland Dynasty Book 4) by Amy Jarecki. This book was off the charts. It had action, adventure and romance, let not forget the romance. After five years of marriage, Lady Helen has failed to produce a suitable heir; a suitable heir in her husband eyes was a son. So her husband rejects her and openly takes a lover while she endures in silence.

My Take: This book was beyond great. It was exceptional. The heroin Lady Helen was a strong women, even in the time were ladies are rarely seen as strong. She became even more so in her dealings with her husband when Sir Eoin MacGregor steps in. Sir Eoin was Helen longtime friend and unbeknownst to her, he has always been secretly in love with her. Noticing the mistreatment that she has been taking by her husband….he becomes the Knight that he was, champion the one that he loves and the child that he was willing to claim us his own. After reading this book it made me go purchase the other three in the series. I just have to say good job Amy Jarecki.
