When Lady Emilia Featherstone discovers that her despicable father has been scheming against the crown, she turns to the Highland Knights for protection—and retribution. Spirited away to a safe house on the outskirts of London, Emilia is surprised to find herself sharing close quarters with a soft-spoken, musclebound Highlander. Before long, curiosity gives way to an alarming attraction. Emilia has learned firsthand from her father that men are not to be trusted. She just never met one so honorable and loyal, so powerful and, yes, tempting.

Ever since Waterloo, Colin Stirling has struggled with memories that haunt him night and day. Driven near to madness, he no longer trusts himself with meaningful relationships of any kind. At least in this temporary sanctuary, Colin can withdraw from the world—that is, until his stunningly gorgeous charge learns the full depth of his pain. In Emilia, Colin sees a kindred spirit with battle scars of her own. He also senses a chance to heal . . . and to find love.

Excited...did I tell you how excited I am! I have wanted a story on Lady Emilia and Colin since I read and reviewed Highland Awakening (The Highland Knight Series, Book 2).This book did not disappoint me. 

Colin is very tortured and as the story continues you discover the full truth to the things that are haunting him and driving him to the edge of crazy. There is one thing that he thinks of constantly and if you read book 2 to the series you will know what it is. That he will protect at all odds. I like his honorable character that has the hidden element of caring. At first glance the reader will think he is too hard and seasoned for a warrior and impossible to open up enough to love. The author takes the reader through his journey of protecting Emilia and opening up to her in a way that he never had before. 

Emilia starts out as a kind honorable person if somewhat timid due to her overbearing father. She is an admirable woman who is strong of character, a loving daughter and dedicated to doing the right thing but I am glad that she became less fearful as the story went on and she didn't allow Colin to make all her decisions for her.  I found it refreshing that Emilia didn't allow her abuse to keep her fearful and she found her backbone to stand up against Colin trying to overprotect her and her father trying to get her back. This is a person who takes adversity and turns it around and she makes a great heroine.

The reader will love this book it is chocked full with caring and evil people, brokenness, healing, love, family and suspense.

I give it 5 STARS.

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Haymore is the author of sexy historical and contemporary romance.

You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.
