The Valiant Highlander
(Highland Defender Book 2)
by Amy Jarecki
Digital List Price: $3.99
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?
Book #2 of the Highland Defender series,this is another winner from the incredible Amy Jarecki. Although a work of fiction it contains main characters who were very much real people. If you are a fan of Philippa Gregory’s and Diana Gabaldon’s well known historical fiction works this one is for you. I found myself totally engaged. So much so I could not put it down.
I finished this book in under 24 hours. I have read other books by Amy Jarecki, but I would venture to say this is the best one yet. I did not read the first book in this series, but I would say each one could very well be read as a standalone and not miss anything.
I would give this one a solid 5 star rating.
If you like your historical fiction with a bit of romance, this page turner is definitely for you.
I received a digital ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The Spinster’s Guide to Scandalous Behavior
The Seduction Diaries
by Jennifer McQuiston
In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston’s enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction—or lead her to her heart’s desire
Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn’t yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won’t take no for an answer make Lucy’s body and soul sigh yes?
Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He’ll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.
