Overview

Highland Fling by Amanda Scott

Forbidden passion has never been more dangerous—or more irresistible—in the first novel of bestselling author Amanda Scott’s spellbinding Highland series
Scotland, 1750. In the aftermath of the Jacobite rebellion, Maggie MacDrumin vows to keep fighting to liberate her people. But the intrepid Scotswoman is risking her life for a dangerous cause. When her latest mission lands her in a London courtroom on a trumped-up larceny charge, she has only one hope of survival. Enlisting the aid of Edward Carsley, the powerful fourth Earl of Rothwell, is a two-edged sword. The seductive aristocrat who awakens treacherous desire is her clan’s mortal enemy—a man she can never trust.   Edward will do whatever it takes to quell another bloody uprising. But how can he fight his passion for the rebellious Highland beauty in his safekeeping? As their lives come under siege, Maggie lays claim to the one thing Edward vowed never to surrender: his heart.

Highland Fling is the 1st book in the Highland Series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

I enjoy reading Amanda's books. She always has as much if not more history in her books as she does romance. It's so real, like it could really happen like that. I knew about the handfasting but not about marrying without a ceremony. I laughed over the ingenious ways there were to smuggle their Scotch Whisky. I did know Scotland's Scotch is the only whisky allowed to drop the E in whisky. I can't imagine what it would be like to live back then.  I'll take Napoleon over Jacobites any day. Give this book a try. It's a fairly quick read. I switched between this book and another and finished both in 2 days.

Hott Synopsis: Knowing her father is being watched closely and therefore unable to support the Jacobite cause Maggie Macdrumin travels to London in order to help the cause. When a wrong turn leaves her alone and helpless she must trust the one man she deems responsible. Edward Carsley, Earl of Rothwell, can’t understand how the lands he’s been granted always manage to profit when all other landowners have devastating results when collecting their rents from their Scottish ‘tennants’. The Macdrumin clan though always pays in a lump sum and on time. So when the passionate heir arrives on his doorstep desperate for his help, Edward decides to dig a little deeper… and stop the Jacobite cause from landing on his doorstep. Hott Review: I loved this book. The beginning was a bit difficult to get into but once you’re in the groove of Ms. Scott’s work you’ll never want to find another path. The story is intriguing and fascinating. I was constantly looking up facts, though loath to put down the book, to learn more because it was so interesting.

Amanda Scott understands Scotland, the Scots and the time period so that this reads as a genuine work rather than pseudo-British novels apperaing of late. The characters are vividly portrayed; the settings easily visualized. A fun read especially for the summer
