Lies and passion!

Highland Knight of Rapture, by Amy Jarecki, is her fourth story in her amazing Highland Dynasty series. This author has done her magic again!

I just love this series and Sir Eoin MacGregor and Lady Helen’s story was a real treat to read! Helen had been married for five years, before giving birth to a baby girl!
Insulted, because she couldn’t give him a son, her husband takes a lover, and Helen is now humiliated by his attitude and suffers in silence. What will happen her?

This is book 4 in the Highland Dynasty Series and each one just gets better and better!! Full of treachery and deceit, passion and secrets, you will absolutely love this as much as I did!

Helen has tried everything in her power to get her husband Aleck to care for her...even if it's just a little bit. But having just birthed their firstborn..a girl..shows just how much disdain her brutish husband has for her. And she can't understand it. Until she sees him openly with the widow Mary. Humiliated i

I had a chance to read this in advance for an honest review. I love this series, and this book did not disappoint. This is the story of Helen and Eoin. Helen has been in an arranged marriage for five years to a cruel man. She does not give up hope that her husband will come to love her. The man that she had hoped to marry when she was younger is sent to train her husband's men, and she tries to maintain her dignity throughout her mistreatment. Eoin knows that he should not have feelings for Hele ...more

I loved Eoin and Helen. I was amazed at how no matter what Alec threw at her she kept her head held high. Were I in her situation I totally would have poisoned that dirtbag but that's just me ;). I thought the ending was kinda anticlimactic and blah. Alec got off EASY. Helen's brother (not the bishop) made me wanna punch him in the freaking mouth. The way he spoke to Helen was unacceptable. Knowing her personality the way he did he should have taken her side from the door and sorted shit out whe ...more

Highland Knight of Rapture, by Amy Jarecki, is another amazing Highland Dynasty story with a spectacular romance; one of unrequited love between childhood friends.

Highland Knight of Rapture by Amy Jarecki is the 4th book in her Highland Dynasty series of books. Although it is part of a series it can easily be read without having to read the other books first.

This story is about Helen, a woman who was given in marriage by her brother Duncan,to a man who unbeknown to him would turn out to be Helen's worst nightmare. Aleck accepted the betrothal to further his fortunes, and to have Helen produce a son and heir for him. After five years Helen finally has a ba

Even though this book is in a series, it can be read as a stand alone. The author has written a spectacular highland romance with adventure, deceit and of course passion. I loved reading romances with unrequited love as the background. The characters were very well developed in giving us readers a lot to absorb.
It starts out as Lady Helen has just given birth to a baby girl and she is so excited and awed by her child. But her husband is not happy with the results after five years of marriage. He

Where have I been, that I never read the beginning this fantastic series. I had the pleasure of reading Highland Knight of Rapture (Highland Dynasty Book 4) by Amy Jarecki. This book was off the charts. It had action, adventure and romance, let not forget the romance. After five years of marriage, Lady Helen has failed to produce a suitable heir; a suitable heir in her husband eyes was a son. So her husband rejects her and openly takes a lover while she endures in silence.

This book is very good ! The author captured my interest with the first chapter and kept me spellbound until the end.

This is a very special romantic story of childhood friends who find love amidst turmoil and bitter betrayal. It has the kind of angsty romance that I love to read, and the author really tugged at every one of my emotions. Lady Helen is married to a brutal man who treated her terribly and has sinister plans for her all along. Yet it takes her so long to see the clear danger. I fel

Normally I do most of my reading in the morning but with this book I tried to sneak in one more chapter before bed. I wanted to read on just to see Helen reach retribution for all she's endured. She was a strong-minded woman refusing to let the acts of her husband drown her. Over and over again she kept her chin up. I actually wanted to reach into this book just to hug her. Then enters an old friend of the family's who trained with her brother when they were young. He's been assigned to her husb ...more

There is nothing not to enjoy in this story. The characters while, harsh, rough, and sexy they are also strong, realistic, engaging and well rounded. The storyline is fantastic, fast paced, energetic, entertaining and passionate. Another hit by this author. I look forward to her next grand adventure. A mus ...more

All the action and adventure of a great story with a strong historical undercurrent Amy Jarecki's Highland Knight of Rapture was a great read! Rapidly moving plot developments, secrets and forbidden love set the background for the fourth book in Ms. Jarecki's Highland Dynasty series. A brave and honorable hero and heroine offset the cruelty of others and leave the reader with the knowledge that in the end good can conquer all!

Eoin knows what to say to his lady, “I did.” Leaning in, he trailed kisses down her neck. “I’ve always wanted you for my own, Lady Helen.” The blurb had me nervous but I found I liked the book more than I thought I would. I didn't like some scenes and I wished that a certain man got more than what he got but overall it was a good read. ...more

Let me just start off by saying this, it’s very rare to find historically accurate Scottish Highland books. Most authors take a lot of creative license or are lazy in their research. Let’s be honest, any type of historical novel, is hard to write.

This isn’t the case with Amy Jaericki’s books. Not at all. The reader is immediately immersed into a Scottish culture where you can feel the dampness of the c

I quite enjoyed the two middle books in this series, but this one I couldn't get into, and therefore did not finish. I realize that it was the way things would have been back then, but I couldn't get past Helen's steadfast devotion to her awful husband. He treated her abysmally and openly cheated on her, and her reaction was to work as hard as she could to seek her husband's approval.

Looking back, I should have realized that this wouldn't be a story for me, because I just can't get into this pl

Love this series

This is an emotional series. Once again the characters were well written and the story a page turner. Each book can be read alone, but I prefer as a series. I look forward to more books in this series.

I have not read anything Amy has written, that I did not love. Her stories are filled with excitement, love, enough sexuality to keep it interesting. I would recommend them to anyone who loves "anything Scottish".

This tale is captivating and teeming with history, betrayal, conflicts, action, passion and love.

Blessed desire gripped her nether parts as her passion inflamed. Helen shamelessly rocked her hips from side to side. "My, you have turned me into a wanton woman."
"And that's a bad thing?" His voice grew deeper with each word.

Good knights of past times valued their honor above all.

Question: What is more honorable? To help a married woman in a marital abusive situation or to honor the sanctity of marriage and what convention society demands? Eoin, childhood friend of Helen, found it difficult to decide how to proceed and with that Amy Jarecki weaves a delicious love story you won’t want to miss!

This is book 4 in the Highland Dynasty series.

Sir Eoin MacGregor has been asked by his the king to help squash a rebellion. He arrives at the castle of the MacIan clan and is an unwanted guest. The laird of the keep don't want his help and he sure doesn't want Eoin to be talking to his wife. But Eoin has been in love with her for years and can't stand to see the way she is being treated.

I love the way Amy Jaecki takes actual historical happenings and then reworks them with a storyteller's licence where they 'suffer a sea change into something rich and strange.'
I love reading Amy's afterwards, and am always gratified by the weight of her research around the families and characters she writes about.
Set in 1493, Lady Helen Maclain, at her family's urging, has made a political marriage of convenience. She finds herself married to a boorish brute who having g
