The Rebel Wears Plaid by Eliza Knight is the first in a Highlander Romance series featuring a female rebel leader and the man who’s against her cause?..
“When he agreed to join her
He never expected her to be the enemy…
By day, Lady Jenny Mackintosh helps her widowed mother manage their Highland estate. By night, she risks her life to raise troops, weapons, and coin for the Jacobite rebellion. On one late-night mission, she is confronted by a handsome warrior who happens to be vying for the other side…
Toran Fraser is hell-bent on taking down the Jacobites responsible for his mother’s death. When he’s intercepted by Jenny and asked to join her cause, he agrees, knowing she can help him uncover the truth. He never expected she would be his enemy…”
I fairly enjoyed this one. I heavily gravitated to how this romance focuses on a strong, FEMALE rebel instead of the usual male Highlander taking the charge.
And this one didn’t disappoint!
I loved reading the complex relationship the characters had both together and in their private lives. They had an opposites attract with more of a political, rebel twist; her having to fight for the Jacobite cause and him mostly looking for vengeance.
I ended up giving this one a solid 4 out of 5 stars. When it comes to the Historical Romance genre, I love when the stories have an even mix of steamy romance AND a great plot to drive them into chaos.
This is the first novel I’ve read from Eliza Knight, and from what her Goodreads profile shows, she mainly focuses on writing Scottish Romances, so I will definitely be checking out more her very soon!
I think if you enjoy this sub-genre (as much as I do), you will want to pick this one up next!
