Highland Jewel (The House of Pendray #3) by Anna Markland. Historical Romance My Review.

The escaped assassins who kidnap Jewel Pendray must never find out her father was responsible for their capture. 
Having recently eluded execution in Holland for a crime he didn’t commit, Garnet Barclay seeks to avoid trouble at a time of religious turmoil in Scotland. 
However, how’s a man named Garnet supposed to ignore the plight of a woman named Jewel? 


Jewel Pendray is really looking forward to the adventure of traveling up to Edinburgh with her brother. If she's lucky they will go on from there into the highlands. There are places there important to her parents and she longs to see them. They are taking an escort of her father's Highlanders with them but that doesn't mean they will always be safe.  These are dangerous times with a lot of unrest. 
Garnet Barclay has escaped from  Dutch prison  with the help of a man he doesn't really know.  Now they are back on Scottish soil and closer to home.  But the more time he spends with his rescuer and his cronies the less he like them. 
This is a very dangerous adventure for all our wonderful characters.  The troubles they will face will soon prove just how strong they are. 
Although this is part of a series you can easily read it on it's own,  but it will tempt you to get the rest of the series. 
As usual with this author a fabulous story that I couldn't put down. 
I loved it. 


I’m a Canadian author with a keen interest in genealogy. I write medieval romance about family honour, ancestry, and roots. My novels are intimate love stories full of passion and adventure.

Passion conquers whatever obstacles a hostile medieval world can throw in its path. My page-turning adventures have earned me a place on Amazon’s All-Star list.

Besides writing, I have two addictions-crosswords and genealogy, probably the reason I love research. I am a fool for cats. My husband is an entrepreneur who is fond of boasting he’s never had a job.

I live on Canada’s scenic west coast now, but I was born and raised in the UK and I love breathing life into the history of my homeland.
