‘Knight in Highland Armor’ by Amy Jarecki

kiha ajSTORY: Grieving from the death of his wife, Lord Colin Campbell listens to the cries of his newborn son whilst penning a missive to the king. With no marriage prospects, Colin petitions his majesty for help in finding a stepmother. Never again will he fall in love—the death of a woman brings more pain than losing a whole contingent of men on the battlefield.

Feisty, quick tongued and smart, Margaret Robinson is delighted when her father receives a messenger from the king…until she discovers what news he brings. In a sennight, she will wed the notorious Black Knight—her life is about to end.

Tension builds during the wedding and deteriorates from there…until an accident draws them together. Just when their love begins to blossom, a dire request arrives from the Pope. Colin must join the Crusades at once.

Their fragile love is forced to withstand the seductions of hell—Margaret tempted by a scoundrel laird—Colin courted by Satan himself. Aye, the war for Christendom could very well ruin their dreams forever. 
REVIEW: Colin, who is a Knight Hospitaller of the Order of St.John, has just lost his wife in childbirth and finds himself called by the Pope to fight in the Crusades for the third time. He petitions the King for a wife before he leaves so his son will have a mother.

Margaret is bid by the King to marry “Black Colin” and be step-mother to his son, Duncan. Their relationship is slow to start but they do fall in love before he leaves. He’s gone for seven years and, with no word from him, she starts to believe he’s dead. A neighboring Chieftain, who has forever been at odds with Colin, tried to weasel his way in to Margaret’s good graces. Will Colin make it back in time or will their love be forever lost?

Although there were a few times the story felt rushed or I would have liked to see more of their relationship outside of the bedroom, I did enjoy the story and look forward to reading the next stories in this series.

I'm married, working, and have grown and independent kids. I love gardening, reading and painting. My favorite TV show is Dancing With the Stars! Television shows have gone to the crap house. My favorite movie of all time is "Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day Lewis. Second best is "Titanic" and third "Passion of the Christ". I am an avid reader and I love talking about the books I’ve read, especially romance novels. I will warn you though: I am prone to rants and raves about a lot of things!

    • There are 4 in this series and I’m finding myself reading them all out of order. 🙂
      ~Highland Dynasty series:
      Knight In Highland Armor
      A Highland Knight’s Desire
      A Highland Knight To Remember
      Highland Knight Of Rapture…

      I’m reading the 3rd one now in a bundle by various authors, Castles, Kilts, and Caresses. This one was in the bundle, Castles, Kilts, and Kisses. I have the 2nd one on Kindle but didn’t realize it until I was halfway through the one I’m reading now. SIGH…this is not helping my OCD when it comes to reading series in order, LOL! 😉
