To escape imminent danger, Scottish lady Jocelyn Ferguson, flees her home and the comforts of her station to live as an English commoner. She knows not who hunts her or why, only that she must trust no one.
Ian MacVie belongs to a network of secret rebels, and is on a mission for Scotland when he encounters a peasant girl, Jo, traveling alone. She refuses his offer of escort, but Scotland’s ‘gentle giant’ cannot allow a woman to traverse war-torn lands alone. He vows to protect her…even from herself.
What neither of them realize is that Jo may be the key to ridding Scotland of English tyranny once and for all.
Uncaged Review: In this 6th book of the series, our hero for this story for this Highland Outlaw is Ian, the youngest of the MacVie brothers. Belonging to a secret group of Scottish rebels, Ian is the last of his brothers whose identity has not be revealed. Lady Josselyn and her mother flee their home as their home comes under attack, making their way to England to scrape out lives as weavers, knowing they can’t return home.
With an accidental meeting with Ian, her whole world will change.
Danger, action, treachery, loyalty and love are steadfast in this story. The author does a brilliant job with some grand twists that actually caught me by surprise. I loved Jo, she is strong, smart and brave – even when she doesn’t think so. She may be one of my favorite heroines in a long time. This is a book that I’ll be thinking of for quite a while, and the epilogue is full of wonderful moments, and if you haven’t read the other books in the series, this does well as a standalone, but the epilogue will be that much better if you have.
