Emma Grant has been sheltered and underestimated her entire life. Her blindness may set her apart, but she's just as fierce and loyal as any of her clansmen. So when she catches word that her brother's best friend is in jail, she doesn't hesitate to race to the brawny Highlander's rescue.
Laird Ciar MacDougall is on a vital mission for Scotland when he witnesses a murder -- and then is blamed for the death and thrown into a Redcoat prison to rot. He never thought he'd be broken out by a slip of a lass and her faithful hound. But now they're outlaws on the run. And as their enemies circle ever closer, he will have to choose between saving his country or the woman who's captured his heart.

The Highland Laird is another swoon worthy entry in the Lords of the Highlands series by Amy Jarecki. I look forward to each new release in the series because they are always filled with wonderful characters, rich history, and true love!

In this edition, we learn more about Emma, the sister of Robert Grant (from book 7). She was born blind. Reading of her struggles and triumphs was great, but also realizing that she faced discrimination made me love her even more. She wants adventure in her life and she takes it. Ciar has known Emma for years, for he is allies with Robert Grant. He and Emma share a kiss one evening, but then Queen Anne dies, and Ciar must leave.

I loved that Emma saved Ciar. I loved that Ciar loved her for it! I loved that Ciar supported Emma’s goals of having adventures and being independent, but still held her when she cried and comforted her when she hurt. Their time in forced proximity is HOT.

The Highland Laird will appeal to historical romance fans who like well researched history, dynamic characters, and a love worth earning. Jarecki does her research and still honors the romance as well.
