Title: Highland Awakening
Author: Jennifer Haymore
Stars: 4 out of 5
This is a continuation of The Highland Knights series. Having read the first book I looked forward to reading this latest offering. Let me say I was not disappointed. Jennifer Haymore spins a well told story that enables you to mentally place yourself in old England and watch the drama unfold before your eyes. It has all the ingredients one reads for, heroine, hero, drama, murder, mayhem, love and all is well finish.
I gave it a four star rating. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading historical romance.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
For fans of Maya Banks and Monica McCarty, the Highland Knights series continues as a tight-knit band of Scottish mercenaries make trouble on the mean streets of London . . . and under the sheets with England’s proper young women.
As the secret author of racy romances, Lady Esme Hawkins goes to great lengths to protect her family’s honor. Which is why she carefully disguises herself before entering a notorious bordello to do research. But when Esme comes face-to-face with a brooding Highland bodyguard, she can’t easily refuse a harmless kiss . . . a kiss that inflames desires ripped from the pages of her novels. Acting on them, however, would risk revealing Esme’s identity—and the fact that she’s engaged to another man.
As a Highland Knight sworn to protect the crown, Camden McLeod never expected to follow his client into a bordello—nor could he anticipate meeting a bright, innocent lass with lush lips and eyes the color of the sea. Instantly, Cam knows he must possess her. But to do so, he’ll need to give up his rakish ways, embrace his role as heir to his despised father, and snuff out a deadly threat to his brothers in arms. By comparison, winning Esme away from her insipid fiancé will be pure pleasure.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
