📖 My thoughts..
Madeleine d’Evremont and Grant Rathmore have their own particular reasons for fleeing Scotland in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden. With red coated troops patrolling the area and with the British soldiers' penchant for violence no-one is safe, especially a woman travelling alone. With some trepidation Madeleine hires Rathmore to escort her to a place of safety and whilst their journey is difficult and fraught with danger, it also allows them time to get to know each other in a more meaningful way. This adventurous paring of a feisty young woman and a damaged Highlander is a beautiful combination as each of them bring their own particular secrets into the story.
Whilst the author is more known for her Regency romances, I do find this current foray into Scottish history to be a lovely alternative. Combining complicated history with a lively romance is never easy but this talented author never lets one get in the way of the other. It was equally enjoyable to watch a burgeoning relationship unfold between Madeleine d’Evremont and Grant Rathmore as it was to worry about the difficulties of them travelling in the Scottish highlands when tempers flared easily and the English viewed all Scots as traitors to the crown.
Rescued by Her Highland Soldier combines a strong sense of time and place with a thoroughly enjoyable romantic adventure all of which is written with this author's skilful flair for bringing to the page historical accuracy, and lively passion. Whilst it is the second book in the Laird's of Advarrick series it works completely as a stand-alone story.
