REVIEW: Amy Rose Bennett’s ‘The Master of Strathburn’
The Master of Strathburn
Amy Rose Bennett
A sweeping, sexy Highland romance about a wanted Jacobite with a wounded soul, and a spirited Scottish lass on the run.
Robert Grant has returned home to Lochrose Castle in the Highlands to reconcile with his long-estranged father, the Earl of Strathburn. But there is a price on Robert’s head, and his avaricious younger half-brother, Simon, doesn’t want him reclaiming his birthright. And it’s not only Simon and the redcoats that threaten to destroy Robert’s plans after a flame-haired complication of the feminine kind enters the scene…
Jessie Munroe is forced to flee Lochrose Castle after the dissolute Simon Grant tries to coerce her into becoming his mistress. After a fateful encounter with a mysterious and handsome hunter, Robert, in a remote Highland glen, she throws her lot in with the stranger—even though she suspects he is a fugitive. She soon realises that this man is dangerous in an entirely different way to Simon…
Despite their searing attraction, Robert and Jessie struggle to trust each other as they both seek a place to call home. The stakes are high and only one thing is certain: Simon Grant is in pursuit of them both…
What AusRom Today thought:
Amy Rose Bennett delivers an emotionally charged Scottish tale in The Master of Strathburn, a fast yet consistently paced story filled with all the action and suspense you’d expect from a Highlander adventure romance.
Heroine Jessie Munroe is a courageous and feisty character who is as likeable as she is determined. She has a keen sense of trouble and how to avoid it (or at least get herself out of it!) which made for some interesting character and plot arcs.
Robert is a charming, compassionate, and gallant Scot who after many years in exile following his participation in the failed Jacobite revolution has returned home to seek forgiveness and a pardon. He is a flawed character yet so much better for these flaws.
The Master of Strathburn is an exciting and intriguing story of romance, Scottish history, love, and redemption. A must-read for lovers of Highlander romance.
