Early Review: The Highland Commander by Amy Jarecki

Jun 19, 2017

She cannot resist the man behind the mask...

As the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, Lady Magdalen Keith is not one to partake in lavish balls or other frivolities. Yet at her father's urging, she agrees to dance with the battle-weary officers at this year's holiday masquerade. It's practically her civic duty! But when one such officer-whose dashing good looks cannot be disguised by a mere mask-sweeps her off her feet and into his arms, the innocent lass can't help herself. Her lips are his for the taking.But will he betray his country for a kiss?

Navy lieutenant Aiden Murray has spent too many months at sea to be immune to the charms of this lovely beauty. Even after he returns to his ship, she lives in his dreams. But when he discovers Maddie's true identity-and learns that her father is accused of treason-will the brawny Scot risk his life to follow his heart?



The Highland Commander is quite the Scottish saga.  Life altering events throw Magdalen and Aiden together into a passionate story.  Magdalen will do whatever is necessary to save her father and Aiden will risk it all for her. Aiden and Magdalen have a sweet and tender love.  I felt they were very well paired. His innocence has a way of making him endearing and receptive to readers. Jarecki does a lovely job of weaving historical aspects throughout the story.  I look forward to more in the Lords of the Highlands series.
