The Spinster and Mr. Scott is book one in Jennifer Haymore’s new regency period series, The Highland Knights.
Book one opens on the battelefield the day following the battle at Waterloo, where Lady Grace Carrington is searching for survivors and finds Sergeant Duncan Scott amongst the wounded. Although they are strongly attracted to each other over the coming days they both know that any relationship between them is doomed to failure due to their stations in life.
Soon, Duncan is rewarded for his service by being asked to become part of the newly formed Highland Knights, a group whose goal it will be to root out traitors to England and bring them to justice. With this turn of fortune, Duncan and Grace are brought into each other’s company often, because one of the other members of the Highland Knights is Grace’s brother in law.
Full of forbidden romance, intrigue, and danger, I found The Spinster and Mr. Scott hard to put down. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series, and this author, in the future.
Thanks to NetGalley and the author for an advanced copy of this book for review.
The Spinster and Mr. Scott releases on May 1 2023.
