She is the daughter of his sworn enemy.
Famed for his fierceness, Laird Robert Grant is above all a loyal Highland clan chief. But when redcoats capture his rival’s daughter, he sets aside their feud and races to her rescue. Aye, Janet Cameron is beautiful, cunning, and so very tempting, but a Cameron lass is the last woman he should ever desire.
He is her one hope of happiness.
Janet refuses to meekly surrender, not even when surrounded by foes. She takes every chance to escape, first from the English soldiers and then from the wickedly handsome Robert. Yet with each day they spend together, his unexpected gallantry chips away at her reserve little by little. As danger and treachery loom, can she trust him enough to choose love over vengeance?
As most of you know, Historical Romances are not my typical reads. I’m not going to lie to you, it did take me a little bit to really get into this one. However, once I did, I was totally hooked. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Robert and Janet. Their story captivated and intrigued me. I love a good forbidden romance, so I was excited to see the outcome of this story. You see, Janet is the daughter of Robert’s sworn enemy. When Janet gets captured, Robert puts aside their familiar differences and rushes to her rescue. Janet is everything that Robert wants in a woman, but can’t have…..Janet herself is a force to be reckoned with. She’s not just going to roll over and surrender. She tries to escape every chance she gets. It’s Robert that throws a wrench into her plans. She knows she should get far away from him, but the more time these two are together, the more she sees the good in Robert. With danger and betrayal afoot, will Janet be able to trust the one man she wants, but shouldn’t have? There’s only one way to find out..
Overall, I had a really great time reading this story. I loved the history, the language and getting to learn about the highlanders. This story was really well written and entertaining. You can tell that a lot of thought and research went into it. I loved that The Highlander Renegade was written in a way that you can easily follow without having to read the prior books first. And, as I previously stated, I enjoy a good forbidden romance and couldn’t get over just how perfectly matched Robert and Janet were. Those two definitely kept me on my toes.
At the end of the day, The Highland Renegade was just a fun book to get lost and swept away in. From great characters to action and romance. To steamy good times, danger and not knowing who to really trust; this book hit all the marks for me. I’m still pretty new to the historical romance genre, but I found this one to be a great one to dive into. Amy Jarecki is a totally new author to me and after reading this book, I’m excited to check out more of this author’s work.
