  • Historical Fiction Romance

    The Rebel Wears Plaid by Eliza Knight Prince Charlie’s Angels #1 Introducing a new series set in Scotland during the Jacobite-Loyalist tussle we find Lady Jenny Mackintosh and Toran Fraser dealing with a whole lot of problems. Toran has been lead to believe that his mother was killed by the Jacobites and because of this is working for the Loyalists while trying to get justice for his mother. Jenny is a stalwart Scottish woman who believes Bonny Prince Charlie and not a George should be on the throne. It will be a tussle with ups and downs, skirmishes and battles, family to deal with and keep safe and a bit of romance in the brewing. What I liked: * Jenny: strong, dedicated to the cause and a good leader * Toran: a man who cares for his family and wants justice for his mother BUT is willing to see the truth if/when it is presented to him * The history of the story * The introduction to a new series * The writing * Finding out after googling that the story I thought might be implausible had historical females from the past who were in fact active in the Jacobite cause * Looking forward to more in the series What I did not like: * That the occupying English were so cruel to the Scots * Knowing that what was in the story was only a glimpse of what really took place Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Sousrcebooks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

He is a big deceiver and fabricator and is known as a traitor. He switches sides between the Scottish Jacobite rebels and the Sassenach English Loyalists for the upcoming rising. He was one of those traitors who sided against his own people, the ones his relatives and clan fought against. His Uncle had told him Scottish Rebels had murdered his mother viciously. He had been working with the vicious Sassenach Redcoat Captain Thomas Boyd at their garrison. It was only to get information and no one was supposed to get hurt. He finds out Boyd is a horrendous liar and plans to murder all the Fraser’s which is Toran’s clan! He suddenly saw his own cousin Archie was about to be murdered by this black guard Sassenach Captain! Toran couldn’t allow his own cousin to be murdered! Though Archie didn’t want to be saved by his traitorous cousin Toran who sided with English swine! Especially when so many Fraser’s would be executed. Toran knew they would both now be wanted by the Sassanach since it would be obvious Toran escaped with a Scottish Fraser prisoner! This is where Toran meets the heroine of this story Jenny Mackintosh, known to Jacobites as Mistress J.. Toran wants revenge and thinks the rebels are responsible for Toran’s mother’s brutal death. As her name, Mistress J. was pinned to his mother’s naked battered body when returned to the Fraser clan in a pine box. Toran is now responsible and his younger siblings, his sister Isla and his brother Camdyn, both are orphans now. He had to care for them and knew Captain Boyd, leader of the English Garrison, would use his siblings to get to him. So he asked if he could get them to protect them, surprising him that she allowed it, to bring them to her castle, Cnàmhan Broch. It was obvious she did not trust him but was she kind and caring to his younger siblings. Yet this was the rebel he knew he had to murder to get his revenge for killing his sweet mother. Yet soon Toran realizes how evil his Uncle is and his cousin Simon are where they were putting himself and his siblings in mortal danger. He soon puts his thoughts of revenge to questions, seeing how Jenny cares for everyone. Now realizing his heroic mother was a Jacobite hero sacrificing herself to keep the rebels safe! This was including her best friend who was Jenny’s mother. A woman Jenny admired greatly, yet feels so betrayed when she realized Toran wanted to kill her and her Rebels. He has a lot to prove even though they had been so attracted to each other and he had greatly admired Jenny even before he knew the truth. Though Jenny’s second in command and cousin Dirk can see right through him and swears he will tell Jenny. Yet Toran makes the ultimate sacrifice to prove his loyalty and love and now knows he is a true Jacobite rebel and on the right side to put The Bonnie Royal Stuart’s on the throne, and send that German King back where he came from! On top of this Jenny’s two best girl friends Annie Macpherson is a healer of the rebels and her other friend Fiona MacBean is a spy. All on the rebel side to help the Jacobite cause. Another huge problem is Jenny’s brother Hamish, who is a huge disappointment and big traitor. He is on the side of the English loyalists, siding with King George and Captain Boyd. He is betraying their father and grandfather’s memories who were both executed years ago protecting their country and lands from the English! Jenny knows one day she might have to kill her own brother being on opposite sides of this war. However, the Sassenach’s have been hunting Mistress J. for the past two years with no success. She has been getting weapons and funds and finding more soldiers for the Jacobite cause. This even included her mother who had been Moire Fraser’s best friend before her wicked execution. Yet she tried to back away from her feelings for Toran as they both knew they were falling in love. Yet they also knew both their lives might be ended by a Sassenach’s sword or pistol. Jenny felt responsible for so many and wanting to aid her Bonnie Prince in any way possible. Now she had news he was on Scottish soil and was doubly excited, will she ever meet her royal savior? Plus will she ever make a choice between duty and love? Now Toran no longer living on a double edged sword and knew his true path was by this woman’s side. Yet will she ever truly accept and forgive his past mistakes? Will the English ever find and capture Mistress J.? Will the Mackintosh siblings ever have the ultimate battle? Read and find out!
