ElizaKnight_TheHighlandersSurrender_HREliza Knight’s bestselling Scottish historical romance series, The Stolen Bride Series, is back with another amazing tale of adventure, passion and love!

Ceana Montgomery had notions of marrying for love after her first disastrous marriage ended in widowhood. But now Robert the Bruce has ordered her to marry a stranger in order to secure a strong alliance to end a decades old feud. Already used as a pawn once in marriage, she is devastated that she will once more have to give up her happiness in order to please the edicts of men. And while the braw, warrior standing before her may incite feelings inside her she thought long since buried, love is a far cry from desire.

The rivalry between Brochan Lamont and his brother John began in the womb, and only grew worse from there. Pitted against each other in childhood, their father left them with a legacy that was a race to the finish—whoever had an heir first inherited the lands. The only problem is Brochan has given his loyalty to the Scots, and his brother to the English. In order to keep the lands and ships under Scottish control, Robert the Bruce demands Brochan marry to break the iron-clad treatise. His new bride harbors a fiery temperament that lures Brochan into stoking her passions instead of her ire.

Aligned to settle a dispute and strengthen the Scottish claims on the realm, Brochan and Ceana must work together to overcome the obstacles that bind them. But perhaps seeing their duties through does not have to be as painful as they both predicted. Is it possible that love can be forged from a union born in alliance? Maybe Fate knew all along just who was meant for each other…

Synopsis:

When a beautiful brunette driver meets Nashville Slammers catcher, Sawyer McBain, at the airport, he figures it’s his lucky day. Sure, he’s usually pretty guarded around people, especially after what happened with his ex, but he can definitely enjoy the car ride. Until she passes his apartment…and keeps driving. All of a sudden the woman seems a lot less like romance material and a lot more like a kidnapper. What gives?

Slammers executive Addison Carlisle needs one little favor. Sure, she may have kinda maybe kidnapped one of her professional baseball players, but it’s for a really good cause. She desperately needs someone high-profile to auction off that night for the multiple sclerosis society she’s chairing, but he insists he wants a favor in return.

Soon Addie and Sawyer are trading completely ridiculous I.O.U.s, like being his plus-one to his grandmother’s poker game or keeping each other company at the driving range. But when their agreement goes from flirty to fiery, neither is ready to let their guard down for a shot at love.

Each book in the For Love of the Game series is STANDALONE:
* Covering All the Bases
* Catching Her Heart

Slammers executive Addison Carlisle needs one little favor. Sure, she may have kinda maybe kidnapped one of her professional baseball players, but it’s for a really good cause. Now Sawyer insists he wants a favor in return.
This is a delightful and at times humorous romance. Since I read the first book in the series and liked it in spite of it not being my usual read I wanted to read this one too.
I was pleasantly surprised that this book may have even been better than the first one in this sports romance series, although I gave it a somewhat lower rating.
I was just so blown over by the first book that it may have influenced my opinion at the time.
The story has it’s ups and downs with love, a bad family relationship, love found and love almost lost.
I gave this book 4.45 of 5.0 stars for story line and characterization.There are sexy moments but no overt sexual content.
I received a complimentary ARC of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

 

covering all the bases coverTalk about a wild day… As if being summoned to the deathbed of a grandfather she didn’t know existed wasn’t enough––Isla Bennett meets the man of her dreams. Spends an amazing day playing tourist around Nashville with him. And then finds out she’s inherited the Nashville Slammers major league baseball team. Oh, and her new dream man? He’s the Slammers’ star power hitter. Isla just went from amazing first date to holy heck I’m your boss in the span of a day.

Liam Cruz can’t believe how refreshing it was to spend a day with someone who didn’t know his batting average, the size of his last contract, or heck, even that he’s a baseball player. Now Isla’s thrust into the spotlight, and though she’s more than capable of handling herself professionally, he takes it upon himself to teach her everything he can about the game that is his whole life. But they’ll have to keep it on the DL.

Because doing what’s best for the team means they can never be together––and that might be the toughest play of all.

My Thoughts:

I have been ready for a good baseball romance since the season opened so when I saw a chance to read this one, I couldn’t resist.

This is my first time reading a book by this author but if she writes another baseball romance I’ll be certain to read it.

When Isla Bennett meets the man of her dreams she has no idea that 24 hours later she will find herself to be his boss.

Isla has come to Nashville because her grandfather that she never knew existed has died. On his deathbed he asked for Isla to come to him but she doesn’t make it before the man draws his last breath. Little does she know that in his will he has made her the new owner of a MLB team.

Liam Cruz, baseball star and part time bartender at his twin sister’s bar immediately feels sympathy and a little more for the obviously distraught young woman. He has no idea that within 24 hours he will have a new boss and she will be that person.

Once I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I must admit that I am a fan of baseball so this read was right up my alley as far as contemporary reads go.

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for story line, plot and characterization. It is basically a sweet romance with closed door intimacy.

I received a complimentary copy of this book to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
