Publisher’s Description:

It Happened in the Highlands is the next book in the new historical highland series, The Penningtons, from USA Today bestseller May McGoldrick…

Lady Josephine Pennington was jilted by her fiancé once rumors spread about her questionable origins. Her adoptive parents have always provided her with the love and protection she’s needed to feel secure, and over the last sixteen years she’s molded herself to meet the expectations of others. When she receives a package containing sketches where the subject is eerily familiar, Jo believes she might have found a clue to the identity of her birth mother.

When Captain Wynne Melfort ended his engagement to Jo Pennington sixteen years ago, he never imagined he would see her again. But after he uncovers information that could reveal the truth about Jo’s parentage, Wynne feels bound by duty to right an old wrong and inform her of his find. He didn’t expect for feelings long thought dead to resurface, for in his mind a love departed was gone forever.

As they strive to unravel the mystery of her birth, Jo must learn how to trust the man who’d once rejected her and Wynne must reconcile his head with his heart. But as secrets of the past begin to surface, evil forces will stop at nothing to keep Jo from uncovering the truth and reclaiming her legacy. Together, Jo and Wynne must fight the deadly menace lurking deep in the Highland mists.

My Thoughts:

This well written book is the newest edition in the Pennington series.
A story of second chances and answers to mysteries discovered the characters are well developed and the storyline is an engrossing  one.
I couldn’t put it down and finished it in two sittings.
This engrossing book has it all, young love, heartbreak, honor and a more mature second chance romance.
Can Jo Pennington and Wynne Melfort make the most of their rediscovered love or will the mystery of Jo’s origins lead to their demise?
I gave this sometimes delightful and other times exasperating tale 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization. These characters are not new to the readers of this husband and wife author duo. They were previously introduced to us as children so their characters were subject to additional development to give us the scope of an adult.
This book gets a sensual rating of 4 of 5 flames.
Wynne has been married before but Jo has spent the past sixteen years chastely looking on and dreaming of her first and only love.
Although part of a series this book can easily be read as a standalone title.
There is no need to read this series in any particular order.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Betrothed to Marcus Balfour, Marquess Althorn since infancy, the entirety of Miss Jane Barrett’s life has been planned for her by others. Through an overheard argument, Jane discovers at a tender age that her betrothed is opposed to the match. The knowledge wounds her deeply and sows the first seeds of rebellion in her. Rather than marry her, the Marquess joins the army but disappears in one of the war’s bloodiest battles. Jane is left in a state of limbo—betrothed to a man who never wanted her and who is most likely dead, but still not free to pursue love elsewhere. 

Marcus’ objections to the marriage were less about the bride than the immorally young age of the bride at which their greedy and meddling fathers wished to force the match. While fighting for king and country, Marcus is confronted with the knowledge that there is a traitor in their midst, a man far closer to him than he might wish to admit. But he is captured, imprisoned, tortured, and left to rot for years until he can make his way back home to take up his rightful place as the Elsingham heir… and as a husband to Jane Barrett. 

The years that have passed have eradicated any reservations about marriage to his betrothed, at least on his part. No man looking at her would ever mistake her for a child. More surprising is the attraction that he feels for her instantaneously and his determination to make her his, whatever the cost. It appears however, that his bride to be, will require some convincing. 

As Marcus sets out to woo her, to prove that there is the possibility for something far more than a simple contract between them, danger lurks at every turn. The enemy, who robbed him of years of his life by handing him over to the French, is close at hand… and has their eye on Jane and her fortune, as well.
