First in the Stolen Brides spin-off 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.
Here is what I thought
I was in the mood for a romance so I decided on Conquered by the Highlander, I love a good Highlander romance. 🙂 Eliza Knight is new to me but she didn’t let me down as I enjoyed this one.
Brenna was taken as a child to wed after they had been invaded and she was always treated horribly by her husband. Now her husband is dead and she is being accused of murdering him and being held captive along with her four children.
Gabriel is in charge of rescuing Brenna and her children and finds Brenna to be a bit more feisty than he would have thought. On their way back to his castle her kids bond with Gabriel and really come out of their shells, especially her eldest as he wants to learn to be a warrior. He is the one who should be stepping up as the newest Laird, but her husband’s brother was preventing that.
Conquered by the Highlander was a sweet historical romance with a sexy highlander and a feisty female and at times I wasn’t sure who was conquering who. 😉 I feel it was just what I needed to give my audio listening a nice reboot.
Recommend if you like
