Forester revisits 14th-century Scotland in the implausible but enjoyable second Highland Trouble historical (after The Highlander’s Bride). Avid student Cormac MacLean steals scrolls from a monastery and is chased by a monk who wants them returned. Cormac’s father, warlord Red Rex, wants Cormac to kill the monk. Reluctant to do so, Cormac invents a tale claiming that the monk is the only one who knows where a treasure is located at Kinoch Abbey. Arriving at the abbey ahead of Red Rex’s men and the monk, Cormac discovers that Lady Jyne Campbell is living there with a community who survived the plague. Cormac tries to convince Jyne to leave the abbey, but she won’t leave the other residents behind. Reluctantly, Cormac leads his father’s men to the abbey, disguised as a warlord and wearing a helmet that covers his face; sans helmet, he sneaks inside and woos Jyne, promising to protect her against the “marauders.” It’s hard to believe that Jyne can’t see through Cormac’s disguise, but Forester’s attention to historical detail and the sweet, subtle romance between Jyne and Cormac keep the story moving quickly enough to maintain suspension of disbelief.

My Highland Rebel was a very unique novel for me. The hero, Cormac, wasn’t a perfect gentleman. He has a colorful past, and an even more colorful father. Cormac’s father is doing everything in his power to turn his son into a warlord, incapable of emotions, especially love. Cormac bends the rules, doesn’t always do the right thing, and isn’t terribly honest. With that being said, I still ended up falling for him. He is a work in progress, and does finally come around to making the right choices. Of course the heroine, Jyne has always been protected and sheltered. We get the pleasure of watching her develop into a strong and capable young woman. There was one drawback to this tale. There is a deception that is played out during the story, and in my opinion, it goes on far past its feasibility. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed My Highland Rebel, and look forward to reading more of Amanda Forester’s books.

Delightfully shocked is all I can say about this well plotted and executed story. I never suspected the way this story would unfold and I enjoyed Cormac's unfortunate chain of events that lead to him taking Jyne's castle and later his heart. This is a story that is entertaining and though Jayne is very naive in many ways it was intriguing watching her become a confidant women through all the trials and tribulations. Her character is a prime example of how one can become more then what others think they are or allow them to be because of fear and/or love. Cormac was a little harder to figure out because he spent his whole life hiding his feelings so he became a puzzle to me that I needed to put together. The further one gets into the story the more of the puzzle pieces fall into place. This author's strategic plotting allows for unsettledness in the reader because they are not sure how this can possibly be resolved without death. Thus, I sat on the end of my seat to the last page. The secondary characters of Luke and Isabelle added another dimension to the story. Luke's history was quite a surprise and feisty Isabelle added a little extra spark to this already interesting story. I give this 4 STARS for how Cormac and Jyne evolve throughout the story.
