The Master of Strathburn by Amy Rose Bennett
Escape Publishing-Harlequin Enterprises, Australia Pty Ltd (May 1, 2016)
A sweeping, sexy Highland romance about a wanted Jacobite with a wounded soul, and a spirited Scottish lass on the run.
Robert Grant has returned home to Lochrose Castle in the Highlands to reconcile with his long-estranged father, the Earl of Strathburn. But there is a price on Robert’s head, and his avaricious younger half-brother, Simon, doesn’t want him reclaiming his birthright. And it’s not only Simon and the redcoats that threaten to destroy Robert’s plans after a flame-haired complication of the feminine kind enters the scene…
Jessie Munroe is forced to flee Lochrose Castle after the dissolute Simon Grant tries to coerce her into becoming his mistress. After a fateful encounter with a mysterious and handsome hunter, Robert, in a remote Highland glen, she throws her lot in with the stranger—even though she suspects he is a fugitive. She soon realises that this man is dangerous in an entirely different way to Simon…
Despite their searing attraction, Robert and Jessie struggle to trust each other as they both seek a place to call home. The stakes are high and only one thing is certain: Simon Grant is in pursuit of them both…
“She’s a problem that I wasn’t expecting. And it could be my downfall.”
Very entertaining, meaty, hard to put down story with twists and turns. There’s misunderstandings and mistrusts between the two main characters which is sorted out and then a smoking hot attraction between the two. The characters were well developed. The hero showed courage, honor, protectiveness, intelligence, and passion. He also had inner pain and guilt from his past. The heroine got stronger as the story went on. I loved that there two villains. The setting and period details are spot on as some historical figures, events, details are featured. A well written Scottish Historical Romance.
