Perfect for readers of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, Jennifer Haymore’s seductive new Highland Knights series begins 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.
I loved this! Grace and Duncan meet on the battlefield, full of mud and blood. But there's a spark between them that won't go away. Even though they know they can't be together long-term, they can't help but sneak in what little time they can together. And Duncan does his best not to ruin Grace's reputation and bring scandal to her family, or make her choose between him and her family. I liked Duncan and Grace. He is a genuinely nice guy who wants to do the right thing. She has been doing the right thing her whole life and just wants to be happy. Sweet story, plenty of steam. Historical romance fans will love this.
