An Amazing Adventure!
Reviewed in the United States on April 1, 2019
The latest story in the Highland Bodyguards is Scottish Historical romance at it's best! Emma Prince has outdone herself again with this fast paced exciting and emotional tale during the time of Robert the Bruce. She incorporates the history and characters seamlessly and takes you on a fantastic journey not soon forgotten!
Will Sinclair, a member of the Bruce's Bodyguard Corps, consider's himself not at his best due to having lost his eye when he was betrayed. But he is sent on a mission to the English court to find one of his spies, Eleanor de Monteney, who has been out of contact. The concern is either she has been found out or worse, she could have turned on them since she is an Englishwoman. If that is the case, there is only one outcome Will will have to carry out.
Eleanor cannot believe it when a large one eyed highlander shows up claiming to be her fiance'. What? Her parents had supposedly arranged the union and she plays along. So Will gets close to her and the tension spikes to pull off their charade with his focus to find out what is really happening with her. Why has she not sent a message to the Bruce as usual?
The attraction is there, but who to trust, how to pull off this deception with the Queen so close and all of the political intrigue at every corner?
A masterfully written story that will remain one of my favorites. I am sad this is the end of this series, but fear not! There are more amazing stories to come from this author, I have no doubt!! ( Please hurry!)
