Arbella de Mowbray is tempted to ditch her father who is escorting her to her betrothed. She doesn't want to marry Marmaduke Stewart, an English Baron living in Scotland. Before she's able to come up with a plan, her party is attacked and she finds herself fighting for her life. In the thick of the battle, Magnus Sutherland, Laird of his clan, spots the beauty struggling with her attackers, and whisks her away to safety.
Magnus's party has just delivered his sister to her betrothed in the Lowlands, and with Arbella in tow, Magnus continues on toward home. An incident with one of his men when they stop for a break, convinces him the only way to keep Arbella safe is to marry her. His promise to marry another, and Arbella's betrothal, doesn't factor into his decision.
I won't tell more of the story so as not to spoil the fun. Ms. Knight has just added another wonderful story to her list of captivating books. And the fact this is the start of a whole new Eliza Knight series about Highlanders is exciting.
The writing is quick paced and lively. Humor is sprinkled throughout. Magnus is a bear with a puppy's heart, and Arbella is brave, honorable, and strong. They are a great couple.
The Highlander's Reward was my reward for being smart enough to grab this wonderful book as soon as it hit the cyber shelves. If you're smart, you'll grab it, too.
Well done, Ms. Knight! Another winner.

The plot was promising - a Highlander who steals the intended bride of an Englishman, a developing romance between two historical enemies, the "jilted" betrotheds of both hero and heroine seeking revenge for the humiliation, and the inevitable confrontation with Arabella's father once he learns that his daughter has married a Scotsman, the very act of which goes against a direct command from the English king who ordered Arabella to marry an Englishman. With all this going on, there's sure to be drama and there was, except I didn't find it to be the best delivery of the plot elements. A lot of the events that transpired and the interactions between Arabella and Magnus was so unbelievable it was hard to truly enjoy the book.
Arabella's characterization came off as childish and irrational and none at all what you'd expect out of a heroine.Read more ›
The H/h are both strong characters. It's actually fun watching them fall in love. They are both sensuous adults and the sex is steamy. I highly recommend this book. It is actually one of the better Highland Romances I've read in a while.
Her determination is tested as her body responds to Magnus like they were meant to be together. Worse, her heart starts to yearn for more. She wants a marriage in truth, not just in name. Magnus is strong, virile, and nothing like the barbarians she's been told about. His gentleness and understanding take her by surprise, until she surrenders to their mutual desire.
For Magnus, Arbella is a welcome reprieve from an unwanted political marriage. Her beauty, her passion, her acceptance by his clan sink deep into his heart, and forces him to realize the truth of love's hold over him. He does not want her to leave, now that he has found his unanticipated happiness.
But worry and misunderstanding haunt them both. And those they spurned want their revenge, coming to claim it just as Magnus and Arbella finally understand each other.
In The Highlander's Reward, Eliza Knight has crafted a delightfully sensual love story filled with heart-throbbing tension. The bitterness and animosity between the English and the Scots during this era is well-depicted, bringing the history alive. The powerful emotions of two mortal enemies growing into mutual understanding and love are vivid and well-portrayed.
Highlander stories abound, but The Highlander's Reward stands out. The emotional intensity and lush sensuality are sure to draw in the most devoted highland story reader. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!
