ARC: Highland Heat by Jennifer Haymore

Nov 9, 2015

Book 2
A Highland Knights Novel

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 gave this book a 


Highland Heat by Jennifer Haymore is a sweet historical read.  Wonderful dialogue and descriptions throughout the book allow readers to be transported to a different time.  Duncan and Grace's love blossoms in the face of challenging circumstances.  I was left without many of the elements that I love about a passionate historical romance. The heart-pounding moments, the ones where a reader is left on the verge of the unknown, turning pages to learn more, were missing. I loved the characters, but wish they had developed more.  I wish there had been more angst and a stronger hero, who saved the day. I hope to read more and see how the series develops.
