Onnections Evelyn agrees not that she has much choice but it suits her purposes as a spy So far so good Alas here is my problem John had been married ten years to a woman he genuinely loved and she had died three months prior after a short illness I nearly choked Three months He didn t seem destitute he never showed that he was grieving nless the author told s in passing and the boys seemed entirely naffected We re talking three months after the passing of a beloved wife and mother here gentle readers Of course as the author told s he would never be able to love again which was a non issue in itself He wasn t even in lust with Evelyn ntil he saw her bare nipples No not my idea of romantic hero at allNow Evelyn she of the oft mentioned bountiful bosoms She who displays none of the Marie Antoinette ualities needed in a spy in spite of being repeatedly told that she is so talentedntil the very end But the cheeky lass did kill a rabbit so we could see how skilled she was with a bow and arrow I didn t find John a suitable romantic lead at all and his dislike of Evelyn s dog didn t help He is a boor not a boar he seems to be angry most of the time he s always cursing no f bombs and his obsession with Evelyn s breasts reached a point where I wondered if there would have been a romance at all had she been flat chested At 15% I had the story at three stars those three months of widowhood didn t sit well with me but at 62% I had had it with her blasted boobs I also wondered why she bothered trying to make nice with John when all she had to do was to shove her bare breasts in his face Sigh I also never The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics understood why Evelyn moaned in French once while having sex it came out of nowhere pardon the pun And I hope the belle visage is corrected in the final versionAmy Jarecki s knowledge of the politics and customs of the era is irreproachable but Evelyn seemed rather clueless at times especially considering her social standing and her spying After much justified doubting John decides he is head over heels in love with Evelyn he had gone without seeing and touching her cushiony assets for a little while and she is madly in love with him because he is so bonny so talented in bed and so kind to his servants and the little people The boys were fine and I did feel that John loved them In the lastarter of the book the focus shifts away from Evelyn s tantalising torso to concentrate on politics and a lot of action ensues this was well done From a historical point of view it was an interesting story it would have made a terrific historical fiction novel but as a historical romance in my opinion it was a bust I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own a widower with two sons who needs a wealthy wife a woman trying to do what she thinks is right well being thrust into a marriage by her greedy father I mean what could go wrong we have intrigue spying going from England to Scotland to France and all the way back again you learn if love can florish in a time when death seems to be around the corner the lines between right and wrong blur and you re never sure who is the hero and who is the villain twists and turns around every corner this is the first book I read in the lords of the highland series but it won t be the last thank you to

lives or will they face the very demons that she has created with her mistakes Amy Jarecki bringss a wonderful story filled with secrets and spies The main characters were absolutely delightful John and Evelyn may have started out as strangers but it didn t take long for them to make cozy together There was always something happening so there was never a dull moment from the get go Ms Jarecki you are so very talented and I truly enjoy reading your books The Highland Earl is the sixth book in Amy Jarecki s Lords of the Highlands series Haven t read the first five books No problem I didn t read them either and this one stood alone perfectly well There is one problem however I have apparently been missing an awesome series and now have to go buy the first five and catch pLady Evelyn Pierrepo My Rating 45 StarsJohn Erskine is the Earl of Mar and he is also the widowed father of two sons Thanks to a mountainous debt due to his father John s estate is suffering and he needs to remarry as soon as possible John is familiar with the Duke of Kingston Upon Hull and the fact that he happens to have a young very beautiful marriageable daughter This young woman is Lady Evelyn Pierrepont and she would make just the perfect countess while affording the opportunity to wipe away John s debtsEvelyn is certainly not keen on marrying the rugged handsome Earl She is working hard as a spy for the Jacobites and feels the earl is too much like her father when it comes to his political leanings The fact that the earl is part of een Anne s council is rather despicable to Evelyn However she most honor the wishes of her father and thus prepares to become John s bride Will she be able to continue as an effective spy Further what of his sons Thomas and Oliver They only just lost their mother three months previously She knows it will not be easy for her to jump right in as their stepmotherIt actually does not take long at all for Evelyn to blend right in with John and the boys The fact that she plans on furthering her activities just might place the family in danger This is something Evelyn never expected could happen The Highland Earl is certainly not a simple romance a story of a man and a woman marrying for convenience and trying to create a love match in the process What happens here is that while they learn about one another Evelyn s work and also that of John s comes to cross purposes and changes the entire flavor of this book Yes the aspect of espionage truly makes this story flyIt is of great interest as to how Evelyn became a spy to begin with as she was just twenty one years of age Her knowledge of her father s activities greatly influenced her to seek to make changes or make whatever mark she could to right the many wrongs she has seen her father and others doWhile Evelyn seeks to remain loyal to those she answers to she cannot help but be drawn to John and even begins to doubt some of the rumors she has heard about him When the family is faced with grave danger the couple are afforded the opportunity to see where their marriage could go that is if they surviveWhat an exciting read by Amy Jarecki I have read the first five books in this

EARL stands entirely on its own and the Author s Note explains why John Erskine was a real historical figure and Amy Jarecki mentions what artistic liberties she took in writing this novel Sad to say it is one such liberty that caused my main issue with the book apart from the two large onesOur fictional John Erskine the Earl of Mar is a Scottish widower with two sons aged 9 and 5 He had loved his late wife but he needs money and a mother for his sons On April first 1713 at a ball he meets Lady Evelyn Pierrepont a duke s daughter She s pretty enough and he surmises she ll do just fine For

To read it first hand with no expectations about what will happen Suffice to say that John soon discovers that Evelyn is not the genteel young woman he thought she was and her exploits could very well put all of them his young sons include in perilAmongst all the spying and danger John and Evelyn learn about each other They also find themselves seriously in lust with each other It s a good job that they are married because their passion knew no bounds and their intimate scenes were scorching hot Will the couple end p falling in love and having a real marriage or will any chance of that be scuppered because of Evelyn s treasonous activities I really enjoyed this story and although I noticed an error here and there it certainly doesn t stop me recommending this wonderful book The Highland Earl is the sixth book in the Lords of the Highlands series and this was an exciting novel for readers who enjoy an action packed story of intrigue and duplicity with a side di Lady Evelyn

Endangered Species unpredictableest to clear his name and maybe get a second chance at loveThis was a well written book with a lot going on spying lies secrets betrayal steamy love scenes wonderful secondary characters action adventure and a surprise cameo from Aiden Maruis of Tullibardine I did like the interaction between Eve and Mar it was not insta love and I liked that they took time to get to know each other I felt the emotions felt anger hurt and forgiveness were very realistic and well done I also like that Ms Jarecki The Bartender uses actual historical figures for her characters and gives the reader in depth facts about the real person and how she worked the events of their life into her story Honestly I did not get the whole Mr Mrs Smith meets Outlander feeling the beginning was sort of like True Lies but definitely not Mr Mrs Smith This book is the sixth book in the series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone title which I am happy to recommendI am voluntarily
