Conquered by the Highlander
(The Conquered Bride Series Book 1)
As usual, Eliza Knight has written a very compelling story. My favorites are her E. Knight historical fiction, but I love her Highland Romance too. This is the first book in the Stolen Brides Spinoff(The Conquered Brides) Series although it has the feel of a book from that same series.
A hero determined to have it all…
After losing his betrothed to a Lowlander, Laird Gabriel MacKinnon is charged with saving her cousin along with a brood of children from an impenetrable castle. Though, the lady he’s been tasked to protect has been accused of a heinous crime, Gabriel has no fear of her. In fact, he’s a little irritated at the prospect of delivering her to her kin. But this hardened, cold warrior just may find his heart melting, for the hellion brings out a passionate side he’d thought long buried.
A lady who will stop at nothing to see him fail…
Lady Brenna has had more than her share of hardships and when freedom looks to be on the brink of her horizon, she’s not about to let some moody Highlander take it all away. She’ll stop at nothing to keep her children safe—and to guard her heart—even though the warrior’s heated kiss threatens to change every vow she’s ever made and every belief about love she’s ever known.
This story is in the Not To Be Missed Category. It has some violence, some sexual overtones and great romance. The characters are well developed and a little complex. If you loved the Stolen Brides series you’re sure to love this book too. There are some surprising twists and turns in the plot that were not initially expected. If you like Highlanders, a little violence, a little bit of sexual overtones and a lot of romance, you’ll want to read this book.
