If you love Maya Banks, Monica McCarty, and Sabrina Jeffries, don’t miss Jennifer Haymore’s steamy Highland Knights novels! The series begins with the tale of two estranged lovers who are reunited on one of history’s most notorious battlefields.
Lady Claire Campbell last saw her husband four years ago. They had a terrible fight, and Claire lashed out in ways she now regrets. Ever since, the memory of his rugged face and piercing blue eyes has never been far from her mind. When Claire receives word that he’s on the Continent, fighting on behalf of the British Crown, she knows she must go to Waterloo to find him—the horrors of the battlefield be damned—and apologize before it’s too late, or she will never forgive herself.
A fierce warrior and natural-born leader, Robert Campbell doesn’t shrink from danger. Bayonets and cannon shot scarcely raise his pulse. Yet his courage fails him after one glimpse of his beautiful English wife. Even the savage blow to the head he has received is nothing compared to the gouge she made in his soul. As Claire nurses him back to health, Rob finds he’s never wanted her more. But he cannot risk another heartbreak—no matter how tempting it is to give in to desire.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
A Highlander’s Heart is a sweet romance, and part of the newest series by Jennifer Haymore. This is a novella, and sets the stage for the series. Major Sir Robert Campbell, is a soldier, and has been fighting the french, and when he gets injured he sees the one person he least expects on the battlefield, his wife, Claire. Claire regrets what has happened in the past with Robert, she loves her husband, and after being apart for almost a year, she is determined to find him and show him of her true feelings and hope that he can forgive her for past mistakes. Then when she finds him injured, here is her chance to love him and prove to him of her devotion.
I found this story to be quite charming, its a short book, and normally I am not a huge fan of novella’s, but this was one short yet sweet. It was quick moving, and you have no problem getting into it, but we see how even with a short story Jennifer Haymore can satisfy this reader. This romance was about two people that care for each other, but have been separated through mistakes of the past, and I loved having one of the main aspects of the story be about redeeming each other. As you get further into the story, you see portions of their past, and its heartbreaking at times, but this author weaves of tale of forgiveness and what true love can really do…can heal broken wounds and hearts, and this story is also full of another aspect that sets the stage for the upcoming series “Highland Knights”. I am excited to see what is in the future with this series and seeing more of Robert and Claire.
