ARC REVIEW Highland Heat by Jennifer Haymore

The Highland Knights book Two, Highland Heat can be read as a stand-alone. It runs almost parallel with the book that precedes it, A Highlander's Heart. Jennifer Haymore has written a beautiful book. The storyline is about two people who fall in love but they are from two completely different stations. Lady Grace Carrington and Duncan MacKenzie had no business falling in love with each other but neither could help it. It's a great love story about two people fighting everything and almost everyone to be together.

On the bloody fields of Waterloo Grace found a soldier alive with hardly a scratch on him. Duncan MacKenzie was dubbed the Unbreakable MacKenzie, he only suffered a concussion, a few broken ribs and a bullet grazed his arm. His only weakness it seems is his dammed ankle which if he's going to get injured that is what's going to get injured. There was an immediate attraction between the two, but their obvious differences they never thought they would be together. But as fate would have it Duncan would be called on to be a new kind of hero and the two of them would be kept close together from Waterloo to London and beyond.

A separate division of the Home Office was created to investigate and deal with rumors of treason, the new group of spies formed specifically to be all Scottish, The Highland Knights. Grace's brother in law was Duncan's commanding officer and is also part of the new group. This elevated Duncan up to something more than just a farmer's son. The more time Duncan and Grace spend together the stronger the attachment becomes to the point they both are willing to throw everything away to be together. But the uprisers they are trying to track down in Manchester have a different plan and Duncan will go to great lengths to protect Grace.

Overall, I loved their romance. Grace and Duncan have a lovely and steamy romance. The book in it's entirety is a great story and I really look forward to reading the other Highland Knight's books.
