Well done Jennifer! I greatly enjoyed this novel. I'm a huge fan of the Highlands Knights. I must say, the previous romance in the series lacked a bit of shine (comparing to what I know the author's talent is) but with this one we are back to the path I have loved so much in the first Highlands Knights' book. And this is the naturalness of love.

Yes, of course there are glitches now and then, big ones too, but what is marvellous is how the protagonists show and accept the love they share. They embrace their feelings towards one another in the most natural way. There's no fight against unwanted feelings, no refusal of them, no lies. They deeply love each other and they say it. Thanks the Lord!
Obviously I love some drama in HR, but being it a very common trait in the genre, although in several different shapes, sometimes is just refreshing and "restful" reading about smooth love.

Now, let's be clear, there's drama here too, treason and abuse are central in Highland Temptation, but what I was referring to above, is the relationship between the protagonists, Emilia and Colin. They openly adore each other but around them there's a very threatening thunderstorm going on.

If it wasn't already clear they are the strength here, I loved them, they are so kind and caring, she towards him and he towards her. They way they protect each other is the sweetest thing. They both have to fight their own demons and stubbornly decide to both face the other's struggles. Also if it means do it forever. I WANT A RELATIONSHIP LIKE THAAAAAT!

The plot is catching, especially the first half. It's never boring. Go for it!

Buona lettura!
