The Fearless Highlander (Highland Defender #1)


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.
