The Fearless Highlander
by Amy Jarecki

Heir to the most notorious clan in the Highlands, Hugh
MacIain hides his identity while imprisoned in the bowels of
Fort William’s hell. Aye, this braw warrior has
endured horrors that should have seen him dead, though now
it appears it’s the bloody flux that will send him to
Satan’s fire.

Optimistic, competent, and captivating, Charlotte Hill takes
pity on a fevered prisoner sprawled atop a cot in the
fort’s surgery. When finally the Highlander opens his
eyes, he seizes her heart with a pained stare. Truly, this
is no commoner—but in 1692, a warrior loyal to the
Jacobite cause and the daughter of a government colonel may
as well be worlds apart.

After his escape, Hugh snatches a chance to woo the lass,
until disaster strikes. While war and lust for vengeance
force Charlotte further from Hugh’s arms, the
couple’s romance seems aimlessly adrift on the open
sea. Before they sail too far apart, can the tender love of
an English lady coax a determined Highlander from his path
of revenge?

Amy Jarecki's Bio

Amy embarked on her writing journey shortly after she completed an MBA with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her first manuscripts were suspense novels and were never published. She calls them baptism by fire---lessons in learning to write fiction. These lessons, combined with several writing conferences and classes, led her to write her first published book, Boy Man Chief, which won the League of Utah Writers award for Best Manuscript, and the Spark Book Award. A lot has happened since, with some of the highlights being Rise of a Legend winning the national RONE award for Best Time Travel; hitting the Amazon Top 100 Bestseller list; and a host of other accolades. Amy enjoys the freedom of authorship and the opportunity to work creatively every day. She has lived in Australia, Bermuda and has spent extensive time in Scotland. Whenever possible, she visits the places she writes about to add vibrant realism to her stories. She loves writing Scottish historical romance, and now she's adding romantic suspense to the mix.
