The Master of Strathburn - Amy Rose Bennett ~Review in English ~ ~Review in German~








Blurb:

A sweeping, sexy Highland romance about a wanted Jacobite with a wounded soul, and a spirited Scottish lass on the run.

Robert Grant has returned home to Lochrose Castle in the Highlands to reconcile with his long-estranged father, the Earl of Strathburn. But there is a price on Robert’s head, and his avaricious younger half-brother, Simon, doesn’t want him reclaiming his birthright. And it’s not only Simon and the redcoats that threaten to destroy Robert’s plans after a flame-haired complication of the feminine kind enters the scene...

Jessie Munroe is forced to flee Lochrose Castle after the dissolute Simon Grant tries to coerce her into becoming his mistress. After a fateful encounter with a mysterious and handsome hunter, Robert, in a remote Highland glen, she throws her lot in with the stranger—even though she suspects he is a fugitive. She soon realises that this man is dangerous in an entirely different way to Simon...

Despite their searing attraction, Robert and Jessie struggle to trust each other as they both seek a place to call home. The stakes are high and only one thing is certain: Simon Grant is in pursuit of them both...


Okay, this is a book that I didn't put down once I had started reading it. I really loved the well developed characters and the well spun story that kept me glued to my e-reader.

When Jessie Munroe has to flee Lochrose Castle in order to escape Simon Grant and his macchinations to get her into his bed she doesn't expect to end up in the company of yet another man who turns her life upside down - again. She obviously didn't plan on getting shot at and at the mercy of a stranger and this strange attraction between them doesn't really make things easier. As Robert and Jessie try to find out whom to trust and how much, they find their way back to Lochrose Castle, right into the lion's den and to Robert'S father, the Earl of Strathburn. Robert came back to geht his name cleared and to claim his birthright - something that his half-brother Simon doesn't really approve of as he considers himself the rightful heir and is not willing to step down. Unfortunately there is still a price on Robert's head and Simon and his mother, the Viscountess of Strathburn, stop at nothing to get what they want...

This well written story made me feel with the characters, it made me smile and hope and fear ...and I was furious whenever I "met" Simon. Even though there was also some amount of "who trusts whom" and "do I tell him" and so on, it was understandable and fit in with the situation in which the heroine found herself. Apart from that I was really happy that the author had the heroine and the hero talk with each other about the important things and also about their feelings, so - no misunderstandings there.

I really enjoyed reading this book and I can definitely recommend it.
