Perfect for readers of Maya Banks, Monica McCarty, and Sabrina Jeffries, Jennifer Haymore’s seductive Highland Knights series heats up with an electrifying tale of class warfare, fierce loyalties, and forbidden love.
With blood still drying on the front lines at Waterloo, Lady Grace Carrington helps an injured soldier to a British medical tent. Though she believes she’s pulled him to safety, in fact she has put them both in grave danger: Because when his brilliant blue eyes meet hers, the passionate Scottish sergeant kisses her in a way that leaves her breathless and trembling. As the obedient daughter of an earl, Grace shouldn’t be tempted by someone so far below her station. But as a red-blooded woman, she longs for so much more.
As far as Duncan Mackenzie is concerned, getting stabbed in the arm was the best thing that ever happened to him. When he wakes on the battlefield, the sight of Grace’s lovely face sets his soul aflame. As an enlisted man and a farmer’s son, however, pursuing his guardian angel means facing the wrath of London society, not to mention his own superiors in the British Army. Aye, but he’d risk all that and more just to keep her in his arms.
Advance praise for Highland Heat
“This story of class difference is the perfect mix of romance and drama. It kept me turning the pages straight through to the end.”—Ashlyn Macnamara, author of What a Lady Requires
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
#2 in The “Highland Knights” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Fast paced Historical Romance based on the premise of finding love against all odds. The aftermath of War, the Battle of Waterloo, love between different social classes, friendships, possible treason and a secret war agency. A powerful and compelling story with interesting secondary characters as well as engaging and strong main characters.
Once again, Ms. Haymore has written an engrossing, entertaining and satisfying read. She draws readers into her stories and captures their hearts. This series is unique in itself, intriguing and enjoyable. Strongly recommended for fans of Historical Romance, the Scottish Elite Guard with powerful but compelling characters. Well done!
