She'll put her life on the line for him . . .
When Akira Ayres finds the brawny Scot with a musket ball in his thigh, the healer has no qualms about doing whatever it takes to save his life. Even if it means fleeing with him across the Highlands to tend to his wounds while English redcoats are closing in. Though Akira is as fierce and brave as any of her clansmen, even she's intimidated by the fearsome, brutally handsome Highlander who refuses to reveal his name.
Yet she can never learn his true identity.
Geordie knows if Akira ever discovers he's the Duke of Gordon, both her life and his will be forfeit in a heartbeat. The only way to keep the lass safe is to ensure she's by his side day and night. But the longer he's with her, the harder it becomes to think of letting her go. Despite all their differences, despite the danger-he will face death itself to make her his . . .
The Highland Duke is quite the highland adventure. As Geordie and Akira are pursued across the Highlands, an explosive chemistry emerges. He desires Akira like no other and plans to keep her at his side begin to grow. To protect his family, Geordie must keep his identity a secret as they outrun the dragoons. Akira must hold strong and true to her beliefs or fall victim to the perils of forbidden desire. Grab this entertaining Scottish adventure! I look forward to reading more from Amy Jarecki.
