    Passion and danger in the Highlands

    Janet Cameron had thought that the annual Samhain celebrations might prove a good occasion to look if she might find a suitable gentleman to marry, instead of dreading what groom her stepmother might choose for her. The only handsome man, in Janet’s eyes, is her father’s sworn enemy: Laird Robert Grant. But the pleasant outing Janet was enjoying with her friend Mairi soon took a most unexpected turn. Things go from bad to worse when Robert rescues her from a bloodthirsty Englishman. THE HIGHLAND RENEGADE starts with much action as the red coats are intent on making life difficult for the Highlanders, in addition to the cattle thievery that has plagued the Grant and Cameron clans, and Janet’s brother Kennan is not helping with his temper. However things simmer down for a while, after Robert takes Janet to safety. I loved that Robert rescued Janet out of chivalry and loyalty to Scotland, and not out of lust; that part came later. In spite of a centuries-long feud between their clans, Robert and Janet cannot help being attracted to each other. Although the lust between them is palpable, I never quite got the impression that they were in love, I cannot put my finger on why exactly. Amy Jarecki’s descriptions of Scotland are breathtaking, and all along I felt as if I were seeing those stunning sites. Which is why I found rather strange that I could never quite get a clear picture of either Janet or Robert; maybe I was having an off-day. I was also baffled at Robert’s age: 14+17=27? As always, Ms. Jarecki’s research is impeccable, thorough and extensive as we witness the precarious political climate in Scotland in 1712-1713. And I do believe the next instalment will feature my two favourite characters in this book, one of them being Robert’s delightful sister Emma.

    A Forbidden Romance

    Holy Snapdragons!! Can a story get any better than this one? Hard to do when there is a braw, fierce, handsome, highland warrior, one Robert Grant, Laird of Clan Grant, who is everything one would want (well I mean the ladies, umm yes he is something!). Janet Cameron has traveled with her brother to attend the Samain celebration and hopes to find a husband among those present. Of course her friend pushes her toward Robert, but the Grants and Camerons have a long feud and recent developments have then at odds again. Janet is very strong willed and refuses to be linked to Robert, but fate has a hand it seems when they are drawn together. English Redcoats are in the area, supposedly keeping the peace in Scotland. But the leader has his eye on Janet and pursues her. When it becomes evident the man will not leave her alone and intends to arrest her, Robert steps in to protect her. One thing leads to another and the adventure or rather harrowing experiences begin. Robert vows to himself, "Janet Cameron would be safe on his watch. Nary a soul will touch her. I swear it." On a journey for their lives, through a winter storm, riding in land that is difficult, even in good weather and a gut wrenching fall, the enemy continues their pursuit. Janet is so strong and determined to survive and Robert seems hard, but deep down he has a lot of feelings. They are strongly aware of each other and the emotions were off the charts! I truly loved these two and Amy has brought them to life. I can feel the cold and angst with her amazing descriptions and wonderful words. This is one of my favorite books I have read this year but is seems every story written in this series is outstanding!! Cannot wait for the next book!!

    The Highland Renegade

    The Highland Renegade Lords of the Highlands #5 By Amy Jarecki ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Laird Robert Grant is a very loyal clan chief who has been having a feud with the Cameron's for more years then he's been alive. Then when a drunk Royal Dragoon drunkenly tries to force himself on the daughter of the Cameron he decides to put aside their feud and come to her aid. He ends up racing against time with her alone in the night. Yes Janet Cameron is beautiful, cunning, and so very tempting, but a Cameron lass is the last woman he should ever desire. Janet Cameron is not the kind of lass to back down and meekly surrender, not even when surrounded by foes. She takes every chance to escape first from the English soldiers and then from the very handsome Laird Robert Grant. Yet with each day they spend together, his unexpected gallantry is chipping away a her heart bit by bit. As danger and treachery loom, can she trust him enough to choose love over vengeance? Will their clans be able to put aside their anger after years of fueding and let these two find love? Amy Jarecki is absolutely fabulous. You will fall in love with Janet and Robert as you read their story. These two characters were meant for eachother. There is enough action and treachery in this book to satisfy anyone's love of what the Highlands were like during those tumoltous times. Ms. Jarecki I glady give you the 5 stars for what I felt was an original story.

    lovely couple to end a feud between families

    Janet Cameron, daughter of a highland laird, has traveled to a nearby town with her brother, Kennan, to celebrate the festival of Samhain, where many other clans, and British soldiers, are as well. Laird Robert Grant is also in town for the festival and promptly accuses Janet's brother of having Cameron men steal Grant cattle. Though someone has stolen from the Camerons as well, there is a long-standing feud between the two clans that leads to a duel between Kennan and Robert. (Kennan began to annoy me from here with his immature, blustery behavior and his refusal to own up to his own errors, but maybe we'll some more development from him in future books). When drunken revelry at the festival ends in Janet's arrest by some nasty British dragoons, Robert finds himself going after Janet, even though he knows this is none of his business and he should just head for the hills. Janet's hatred and mistrust of Robert and his entire clan has been ingrained in her since birth, but she has little choice but to trust him, especially since they've both made a determined enemy in the English lieutenant. With the onset of a blizzard and a fall that injures Janet, Robert opts to get them to his home and keep her safe from the English until she's healed enough to travel to her own home. This angers Janet, who, despite the obvious connection between them, is determined to dislike Robert and maintain the mistrust between their clans simply because the feud between them has lasted for generations. Robert understands the risks of getting involved with Janet and does his best to keep himself apart from her, but he feels desperately drawn to her. Will he be able to convince her to accept him and make peace with her clan? This is much improved from other, earlier works I've read from this author. Although Janet did really get on my nerves, I liked Robert a great deal as a good example of a flawed hero who demonstrates character development. This one has made me want to start reading this author again. I received a complimentary ARC via NetGalley. Thank you! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
