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 love reading a book by an author whose work is new to me and it is even more exciting to find she's a really, really good storyteller. 

This writer keeps the readers interest with vivid details of the background scenes around the characters and thorough well written characters. Duncan is humble, honorable and strong at the same time. I loved his depth of character and how he rationalizes his love for Grace in regards to their stations in life.

Grace's character is the traditional older daughter but with a little kick which comes out throughout the book. I enjoyed watching her thought process as she deals with who she is and what she wants. 

This book also brings in the characters Lady Claire (Grace's younger sister) and Robert Campbell from A Highlander's Heart book 1 of this series. I plan to go back and read the other books to the series and I look forward to the next book in the series as well. 

I give this book 4 stars for being an enjoyable memorable read.

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.
