Book Review: The Highland Commander

The Highland Commander, by Amy Jarecki is an interesting historical romance. 

As a Navy lieutenant, Aiden Murray has spent months at sea, by the time his ship docks in Stonehaven, Scotland. At a masked party in Stonehaven, Aiden meets the lovely Lady Magdalen Keith, who has been forced to live independently and currently manages a small hospital. After their quick meeting, Aiden and Magdalen re-encounter each other in London, and drama ensues.

Aiden and Magdalen's romantic story spans over years with each overcoming personal issues, family struggles, miscommunication, and plenty of drama. However, the title and cover are slightly misleading, since the book leans more towards a revised regency adventure historical romance book rather than a typical highlander-style romance.

Since it's the second book in the Lords of the Highlands series, it's ideal to start with the first book, yet it's not necessary to read the books in order.

The Highland Commander is geared towards those who enjoy unusual historical romance stories.

Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
