Why You're Reading This Book:

  • You're a historical fiction fan.
What's the Story?:

From "He stole her away... But she set him free... They called him The Priest. Maybe because of his billowing black robes and the steel crucifix that hung around his neck. Or perhaps it was because those who met him were compelled to pray. But Duncan Mackay was anything but a saint. He was a sinner-a paid mercenary. Until he met her, and she made him want to change his ways. Lady Heather Sutherland, has never been compelled to follow rules. And this time, she's gone too far. Following in the footsteps of her brothers and cousins, she chooses to join the fight for Scottish freedom-and gets herself abducted by a handsome, rogue warrior, whose touch is sweet sin. Duncan's duty was clear-steal Heather away from Dunrobin Castle. What he didn't expect, was to be charmed by her spirit and rocked by her fiery kiss. Now, he doesn't want deliver her to those who hired him, instead he wants to keep her all to himself."

My Two Cents:

"The Highlander's Sin" is the sixth book in The Stolen Brides series by Eliza Knight. As with the other books in this series, this book is a stand-alone book but you will find out the outcome of some of the other characters in the other books so better to read those books first. This is a fun series and you will not regret it!

This book takes up the story of Lady Heather, the sister of some of the heroes from the previous Stolen Brides books. She has seen her brothers fight for Scottish freedom and is moved to take up her own fight. Unfortunately as a woman, she is very, very limited in what she can do and still be considered appropriate. Duncan is on a very different path. He is a warrior but also a priest (which was a really fascinating combination that I enjoyed reading about).

At first, Heather and Duncan butt heads but they eventually fall for each other. I enjoyed reading about the romance in this book. It wasn't quite as good as some of the other installations in this series but I still really enjoyed the romance and the hot streak in this book. I'm looking forward to the next installation!

Overall, this was a pretty good romance!
