Review of Highland Awakening by Jennifer Haymore



This is only the second book I have read by Jennifer and I will be buying the rest of "The Highland Knights" series to add to my TBR list.  A wonderful story of adventure, romance, and true love.  

Lady Esme is a socially awkward young lady who doesn't like the requirements of going out into Society and finding herself a husband.  She has a secret that if it came out would ruin her and cause a scandal that would hurt her family.  She is content and has no wish to venture out of her comfort zone.  So she agrees to marry a nice man that she has known her whole life.  They will have a normal Ton marriage, see each other occasionally at the dinner table and maybe once a month in bed, in the dark.  Which is just fine with her.
And then she meets Cam McLeod,  a rough and tumble Scot who scares and attracts her at the same time.
She doesn't know what to make of him.  He is bold, brash, strong and very good looking.  Cam is attracted to her but doesn't exactly know what to do about it.  He has issues from his past that involve his whole family.  He has sworn that he will never marry after seeing how his father treated his mother.  But he really wants her in his bed and it seems Esme wants that too.

While they are trying to figure out how they feel about each other, there is someone trying to murder the Highland Knights.  One of them is dead and another near death after being attacked.  Who is trying to kill them and why?

A very good book with lots of passion, mystery and drama. If I had to have one criticism of the book it was that Esme was a little too wishy washy at times.  But overall it is a good story that you will enjoy reading.

Received a complimentary copy from Netgalley for an honest review.
