Another steamy Scottish historical romance by Amy Jarecki set in 1493: After five years of marriage, Lady Helen has failed to produce an heir. Giving birth to a lass, Helen's husband rejects her and openly takes a lover while she endures in silence.
But war is brewing. The MacDonald feud with the crown comes to a head and with it arrives Helen's childhood friend, Sir Eoin MacGregor. Eoin and his men join with the MacIain Clan to quell the rebellion. But when he witnesses Helen suffer undue humiliation, his troubles escalate tenfold.
If Eoin helps the lady escape, he will break the sanctity of marriage. Worse, the king has commanded Eoin to fight beside her barbarous husband. To rescue Helen from tragedy worse than death, will the gallant knight find the strength to mask his deepest desires to save the woman he's always loved?

I loved how Lady Helen became stronger as the story went on though I had to keep reminding myself when I questioned why she did the things she did - that I'm from a different time and women didn't have the rights and freedoms like we do. Sir Eoin didn't give up on her though.
Dave Gillie's is a wonderful narrator and he certainly doesn't let the listener down in Highland Knight of Rapture.
I don't know if it would be considered moving, but I did have to laugh when Mary gave birth to a girl!!
This is a great story. I love Amy Jarecki's books. This particular story is hard with the verbal and physical abuse but the listener has to keep in mind that this was a way of life back then. I loved Sir Eoin. He stood his ground knowing the consequences.
