Author Amy Jarecki pens an wildly exciting and thrilling Highland romance. Set in the period of Queen Ann and Prince George’s in England, one gets a taste of the politics, backstabbing, and drama of the queen’s court. At a time of extreme prejudice toward Scots, and with Queen Anne’s fears of plots against her life, this author takes the reader through a thrilling story of intrigue, deception, innocence, and rejection.
Lady Maggie lives her life ashamed by her illegitimate birth. When she arrives at the queen’s court to plead her father’s case of innocence, she endures rejection and humiliation.
Reunited with the devilishly handsome Commander Aidan Murray, Maggie wonders if he remembers the time they spent together at the masked ball a year ago. When Aidan finally gets a moment alone with Maggie, he wraps his arms around her and reassures her how he feels—he thought about her constantly while at sea.
As dangerous rumors about conspiracy against the crown threatens to destroy Maggie and her father, Aiden is forced to distance himself from Maggie for his own safety.
Left to protect herself, Maggie’s life is in jeopardy. But once Aiden realizes Maggie means more to him than anything else, he stops at nothing to help her.
This is a love conquers all story.
Narration: Penelope Hardy performs this story quite well. She moves in and out of characters voices effortlessly, as she brings written word to life.
While I often really enjoy Jarecki, I found myself slogging through this book. I freely admit that a large part of that may have to do with the narrator. A weaker than usual plot and the some over used words or turn of phrase bothered me. Glaring mispronunciations and inserting incorrect words plus a voice that, to me, was annoyingly shrill made this a book I will not repeat, forward or recommend.
Great story, different than other highland stories but justcas gripping. I wish they woild omly use Scottish male narrators as eith tge natyre of the storyline
