Review: Highland Jewel




The next book in the new lush Scottish historical series from USA Today bestselling author, May McGoldrick.

A trained officer with the Royal Highland Regiment, Niall Campbell has spent his life serving the Crown. Battle-weary and searching for peace, he nothing to do with trouble—until he meets Maisie. But unless Niall and Maisie can find a way to stand up to the destructive forces that threaten to divide them, long-buried secrets and political schemes are destined to stand in the way of the glorious love they’ve found…

Rating: 4.5-stars


Highland Jewel by May McGoldrick is one epic adventure. I followed young women as their lives were taken from them. They were used like ploys for other people’s gain. Each woman fought for her own freedom. Strong, clever, and vibrant women who are unforgettable. A lady sold and forced by her own mother to marry a cousin. A man so vulgar and deadly. Torn apart from her young son, both are taken away. Their destinies are just reuniting. Another man finds out what his military career forced him to do. Peeling away from it, will cost him everything. Hope, love, and sacrifice are strong themes throughout this read. It was all so captivating. I could not stop reading this novel. May McGoldrick has caught my full attention. I love her characters. The count down for her next brilliant story has started. Overall, this is a historical tale all should read.
