The Highland Commander


by Amy Jarecki

Publisher’s Description:

She cannot resist the man behind the mask…
As the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, Lady Magdalen Keith is not one to partake in lavish balls or other frivolities. Yet at her father’s urging, she agrees to dance with the battle-weary officers at this year’s holiday masquerade. It’s practically her civic duty! But when one such officer-whose dashing good looks cannot be disguised by a mere mask-sweeps her off her feet and into his arms, the innocent lass can’t help herself. Her lips are his for the taking.But will he betray his country for a kiss?

Navy lieutenant Aiden Murray has spent too many months at sea to be immune to the charms of this lovely beauty. Even after he returns to his ship, she lives in his dreams. But when he discovers Maddie’s true identity-and learns that her father is accused of treason-will the brawny Scot risk his life to follow his heart?

Lords of the Highlands series: The Highland Duke,The Highland Commander,The Highland Guardian.

My Thoughts:

Amy Jarecki has crafted another well written story. It begins like many stories of young love but leads us on a convoluted journey to it’s end years later.

It was difficult to read some parts of this story with the brutality that was involved. I’m certain that Amy softened some of that by not going into greater detail.

This part of the story reminded me of the difficulties of Jamie Frasier in the Outlander novel.
It sickened and brought this reader to tears but is an intricate part of this tale.
Maddie and Aiden are destined for one another but will their travails end in death or a lasting love?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. This story has more strife than passion therefore the lower sensual rating.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this story which I read and reviewed voluntarily

Lord of the Highlands Series:

  1. The Highland Duke
  2. The Highland Commander
  3. The Highland Guardian – Coming December 19, 2017
  4. The Fearless Highlander – Prequel to come
