As each of the Highland Knights are are war heroes and going through some form of PTSD with many scars some are physical and some are mental, but nothing that a good woman can't help them heal and deal with. This is the third book in this wonderful Highland Knights series.
Sir Colin Stirling one of the war hero warriors of The Highland Knight believe he is going mad and is being chase by the demons of souls he has killed in battle. He believes he can talk to the dead and that one day they will kill him. Of course back in this time there wasn't a word PTSD and no therapists to help. Well not without being committed to an insane asylum like Bedlam. So in other words there was no one to truly heal him or medication to take as there is in the 21st century now. Luckily he had the support and love of his family as they called themselves The Highland Knight whi were there to help and protect those in need and the Crown. It made him feel less then a man for his fellow Knight to help chase his demon and nightmares away. He truly felt he would never have a woman to share his life because of the danger he possessed with these demons always chasing him.

She has been whipped badly and went to only man she trusted Sir Colin Stirling a man who once guarded her vicious father. When he sees the condition she is and how a father who was a Viscount and a Noble he wanted to kill him Plus it obvious he had been beating his daughter secretly for years keeping her in isolation and away from society, . Not that he ever liked Pinfield as he could see the type of man he was, but to beat his own daughter with a whip was just !reprehensible! To harm any female made him sick but his own daughter! Colin was furious and filled with rage!
The daughter was sweet intelligent and good besides being beautiful, the exact opposite of her father. The Highland Knights knew they had to get Lady Emilia and away from London immediately and Colin volunteered and begged it to be him as it was obvious he was the only man she trusted, They decided Scotland would be the logical and safest choice and had to do it fast so some of the Knights could investigate and get the goods on the Viscount while Colin whisks her away to safely to Scotland. Yet this trip is anything but smooth sailing as they go on the pretense as husband and wife without a chaperone.
Emilia is running for her life and Colin running from his demons! What they discover is a thing called love while he protects her life and she protects his soul. It is really beautiful how they open their hearts and are so protective and fierce of one another, but as they are running out of time as her wicked father and his wicked henchmen are chasing after them too! Will Emilia finally confess all her father's sins to Colin? Something she hasn't done yet, feeling some loyalty to the man who sired her. She knows the informations she has will have him hanged as a traitor of the crown. Will her father catch up and make his threat come true and murder her and possibly kill Colin too? You will have to read this exceptional story and find out.
This heart pulling, action packed, fast paced, riveting, romantic adventure is filled with intrigue, murder, mayhem, suspense, abduction and more! So many twists and turns, ups and downs that had me at the edge of my seat wondering what could possibly happen next! Just loved this story, read in one sitting as I could not put it down! as I have this entire series! Jennifer Haymore is a magnificent writer and keeping the readers fascinated from start to finish. I highly recommend Highland Temptation by Jennifer Haymore and looking forward to her next one!
