Bestselling and award-winning authors bring you four never-before-published novellas of searing passions that span the ages. Four fierce warriors from Ireland and Scotland… Four heroines determined to resist them… One dagger steeped in the blood and treachery of kings.

Publisher’s Description:

The King’s Outlaw, by Kris Kennedy

(4 stars4-star-rating)
1193 – Outlawed and on the run, Tadhg O’Malley has one mission: escape with the valuable dagger of Jerusalem before a brutal nobleman hunts him down. Trapped and almost cornered, his plan is simple: kidnap the innocent merchant with the long hair and complicated eyes. Igniting a raging passion is not part of the plan. Neither is falling in love. Both endanger their lives, his mission, and with it, the kingdom.

Taken by the Highlander, by Eliza Knight

(My Favorite of this Collection ( 5 starsrating5star5)

1306 – A week before Lady Rose Munro is to wed a neighboring laird, she is abducted on the road by a wicked and dangerously handsome stranger. Highland warrior, Malcolm Montgomery has been ordered by King Robert the Bruce to steal Rose and her son from the suspected traitor she is about to marry—gifting him with an ancient and much sought after dagger as payment. Rose shouldn’t trust her captor. Shouldn’t feel her body heat at his simple touch, or allow him to press his fervent lips to hers… Malcolm shouldn’t be seducing the woman he is sworn to protect. Shouldn’t desire her, for she’s not meant to be his… Succumbing to passion threatens them both, and falling in love is absolutely not an option.

Stolen by a Highland Rogue, by Vonda Sinclair:

(4.5 stars four-half-stars-for-brent-weeks )

1619 – When the infamous dagger is stolen from Highland chief, Dugald MacKerrick, he will do whatever it takes to reclaim it, even abduct the wife of the aristocratic thief, but what if his beautiful French hostage isn’t who he thinks she is? Deep in the rugged Scottish Highlands, Dugald discovers not only is his captive, Camille Bouchard, more than he expected, so is the passion raging between them, threatening everything he thought mattered to him.

Her Wicked Highlander, by Jennifer Haymore :

(Very Engaging and at times funny (5 starsrating5star5)

1816 – Maxwell White is the newest member of the Highland Knights, an elite mercenary group sworn to protect the Crown. His first assignment is to keep independent and spirited Aila MacKerrick safe from a madman determined to get his hands on a treasure she unwittingly possesses. But Aila isn’t going to simply allow some Highlander—as handsome as he might be—to capture her and whisk her away to an abandoned castle. She’ll fight to the death for her freedom…as soon as she rids herself of this pesky, insistent desire that makes her far more inclined to run into his arms than away from them….


This is a collection of stories by four different authors carrying a mutual theme of a Ruby Hilted Dagger over a span of 500 years. I enjoyed all of the books (novellas) but some more than others. That’s why I gave it an overall score of 4.5 stars (four-half-stars-for-brent-weeks).

I have rated the stories individually at the end of each title above. I have read all authors involved previously and again have liked what I have read.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title to read and review.

This in no way affected my opinion.
