A moment of true excitement hit me when I saw this book had been nominated for publication through the Amazon's Kindle Scout program. I was thrilled to be aided in the voting. As previously mentioned in other reviews, I am a huge fan of Jarecki as an author and A Highland Knight's Desire is perhaps my favorite thus far.
The instant suspense of action throughout the story and the true heart of the romance made this tale worthy of my own desires as the reader. Both Meg and Duncan were worthy of happily-ever-after endings even though at first I wasn't as convinced that their story would be one of such endings. By the middle of the book I no longer had any doubts lingering.
I do want to point out that it's mandatory to read this series in order. For not only entertainment purposes but so that as a reader you will not become lost with the Duncan and the storyline in this book.
As for the writing in this book, Jarecki never washes out. She is stronger than ever with her divine stories, distinctive characters and a romance that makes me want to truly believe in both heroes and in true love.
