Highland Heat. ( Highland Knights #1) by Jennifer Haymore. ARC Review.




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.
 

Lady Grace Carrington is searching the devastation of the Waterloo battlefield for anyone that could be helped. The carnage is almost unbelievable. So many dead and wounded.
Sergeant Duncan Mackenzie comes back to his senses when Grace stops near him. What is such an aristocratic woman doing trudging through the blood and mud? 
An attraction grows between them, but there is no way a simple Scottish soldier and the daughter of an Earl could be together without ruining her and dishonouring his commanding officer, who is Grace's brother in law.
A very emotional tale of the after effects of war, and the bravery and honour of even the lower ranks. This book made a nice change from the usual type of story where the higher ranked person is the man. A woman in those times, even when she has a loving family could not control who would be acceptable to them.
A very enjoyable read, full of danger,  excitement and some hot sex scenes.
