The Highlander's Reward was an awesome read. I absolutely loved it. It will draw you in from the very beginning and you won't want to put it down. It is packed full of emotion, amazing characters, action, and intrigue. I loved Magnus and Arbella from the very beginning. Arbella is a strong and opinionated woman and is exactly what Magnus needs. I love the way they interact with each other. I laughed when reading their interactions quite a few times. I loved the action and the story itself. I didn't want to leave the world that Eliza Knight had woven, even when the book was done. I just wanted to keep reading. There is more than enough to captivate the reader in this story. This is part of The Stolen Bride Series and I can't wait for the next one.
Lady Arbella is traveling with her father into Scotland to meet her betrothed but she ends up in the middle of a battle that is being waged at the castle.
