What's the Story?:

From "A Highlander tamed…

Laird Daniel Murray seeks adventure, battle and freedom for his countrymen. Putting off his duties as laird—with a promise to his clan he’ll return come spring—Daniel sets off with his men to fight alongside William Wallace and the Bruce. But soon he stumbles across an enchanting lady in need. She tantalizes him with an offer he simply can’t refuse and a desire he attempts to dismiss.

A lady’s passion ignited…

Escaping near death at the treacherous hands of a nearby clan, Lady Myra must find the Bruce and relay the news of an enemy within his own camp. Alone in a world full of danger and the future of her clan at stake, she must trust the handsome, charismatic Highland laird who promises to keep her safe on her journey—and sets her heart to pounding.

Together, Daniel and Myra will risk not only their lives, but their hearts while discovering the true meaning of hope and love in a world fraught with unrest."

My Two Cents:

"The Highlander's Lady" is the third book in The Stolen Bride's series by Eliza Knight. This is another rousing highlander romance and I ate it up. I am loving this series so much! I continued to love the love story in this book and all of the great historical detail.

Unlike the first two books, the hero, Daniel, and heroine, Myra, are both Scottish. They understand that their world and their country is changing rapidly with all of the fighting. The stakes are high for both characters! This book had a little bit more action than the previous two books, which I really, really enjoyed. On top of that, you still get a really great love story and yes, all of the hotness of the previous books is most definitely still pleasant.

I especially loved the historical detail in this book. I really loved seeing how brave Myra was when it came to protecting her family. It would have been so hard for so many to be as brave as she was. I really liked the appearance of the Bruce in this book. He is such a fascinating historical figure and it was awesome to see him brought to life in these pages.

This series is such a treat!

What's the Story?:

From "Their greatest opponent won’t be battled with a sword…
But with their hearts…

Ronan Sutherland is a fierce warrior. Swearing off all else, he thrives on his powerful position within William Wallace’s army. Freedom for the Scots is his mission—until he meets fair Julianna. She captivates him, intoxicates him…makes him want more out of life than what harsh dangers he’s accustomed to.

Lady Julianna is no meek maiden. She’s trained in the art of war, sister to one of Scotland’s most powerful men, and tasked with keeping the future king safe. Until she’s kidnapped by a rivaling clan. Now her only hope is for the one man she trusts—and desires—to save her.

Together, they’ll have to face down one of Scotland’s most treacherous foes… And keep from falling victim to the one thing they’ve both eluded thus far—love."

My Two Cents:

"The Highlander's Warrior Bride" is the 4th book in this romantic series from Eliza Knight. This series continues to be such a good read. I absolutely love the romance in these books and I really like the great historical detail. I am having so much fun with these books.

Julianna is no shrinking violet. She is a warrior herself and sister to Robert the Bruce, one of the major power players in the Scottish fight for independence. Ronan is also a warrior and he is a little bit intimidated by Julianna. They fall for each other quickly and their story was so good. I loved that Julianna's character was a little bit different than the typical romantic heroine. This lady can really stand her ground. I thought it was interesting to see how she was trained as a warrior. Definitely fun!

I liked the romance in this book. I wish that we got to know a little bit more about the motivations for how they fell for each other but overall I really liked the story. Again, there is a lot of hotness her. Highlanders have to be one of the best kind of romantic heroes!

I'm still loving this series! I like how all of the characters of the various books are connected!
