While recovering at his uncle’s estate from wounds sustained in the Sudan, Jack Cameron—a loyal Scottish captain in the British army—is haunted by the words of a dying officer: one of Her Majesty’s Black Dragoons is aiding the slavers they were sent to suppress. But how will he find the traitor without sending the culprit to ground? He finds a way while listening to the voices beneath his open window—particularly those of Addie Hoodless, a beautiful widow, and her brother, Ted, a famed artist commissioned to paint portraits of the Black Dragoons’ senior officers.
Posing as an artist, Jack decides to infiltrate the close circle of friends at Ted’s studio to listen in on the unguarded conversations of the officers. But first, he must win Addie’s trust despite the emotional wounds of her past. Will Jack dupe the only woman he has ever loved or stand down from hunting the traitor? If his real identity is exposed, Addie’s life will be in terrible danger.
Review: Highlander Undone by Connie Brockway is one intriguing yet hot romances that readers will love. A dying soldier tells another about what is really going on inside the country. This disturbing news leads Jack determined to find out all he can until he’s been it in the back. Soon he wakes up in an unknown place, safe for the moment. But as he heals he ends up listening to all conversations that the household isn’t aware of. What he learns, helps him come up with a plan to question others within enemy line. But will it be worth the risk? Jack soon falls in love with the one woman he has to deceive and all thoughts of losing her makes him rethink his choice.
Connie Brockway is a talented writer who knows how to heat up the pages. Her characters like Jack and Addie come to life. Their attraction to one another and blunt words will leave readers with a sense of wanting to read more. Connie doesn’t disappoint. The heat only inflares as the fast paced plot unfolds. An unknown enemy prescence and Jack risking his life and Addie’s to find the answers left me with a shiver down my spine. But like real life things worth wanting and needing never come easy. The readers will be taken in suspense as Jack puts all risks at hand. Just the intrigue of who is behind all of the terror, is one of the major lures that the Highlander Undone presents. I highly recommend this brilliantly well written story to all and rate it a five out of five stars.
