The Highland Rogue by Amy Jarecki is book seven in her Lords of the Highlands series. Though part of a series, this novel reads as a standalone.
Sir Kennan Cameron, captain of an eighteen-gun ship, the Highland Reel, is attacked by pirates and washes ashore on the island where Divana Campbell has lived alone after being abandoned. Kennan is gravely wounded and Divana nurses him back to health. Divana loves Kennan but knows he is above her station and they can never be together as she wishes. Kennan thinks Divana is lovely and wants to protect her but knows that’s all they can ever have. Kennan and Divana face adversity in many forms on their way to Kennan’s home and even after they arrive. Will they overcome the obstacles in the way of a possible happily ever after?
The Highland Rogue is a quick, entertaining read with an interesting plot. The characters are vibrant. The romance is captivating. I throughly enjoyed this story and rate it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to readers of historical romance, especially Highland romance.
My thanks to Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
