Publisher's Summary

Lady Arbella de Mowbray abhors the idea of marrying an English noble occupying Scotland. When she arrives in Stirling, she is thrown into the midst of a full battle between the Scots and the English. Besieged by rebels, she is whisked from her horse by a Highland warrior who promises her safety. But when he kisses her she fears she's more in danger of losing herself.

The last thing Magnus Sutherland wants is to marry the beautiful English lass he saved. As the laird of his clan, he has a responsibility to his clan and allies. But when Arbella is attacked by one of his own men, he determines the only way to keep her safe is to make her his. A decision that promises to be extremely satisfying. Magnus brings Arbella to his home of Dunrobin Castle in the Highlands. And that's where the trouble begins… Their countries are at war and they should be each other's enemy. Neither one considered their mock marriage would grow into a deeply passionate love. What's more, they were both unhappily betrothed and those who've been scorned are out for revenge. Can their new-found love keep them together or will their enemies tear them apart?

    "Nothing remarkable"

    I feel like I've listened to 200 other books with the same basic storyline. The female character is annoying and not that interesting.

    "A Rewarding Listen!"

    I adore highland romance, and this book is no exception. It's my first historical romance by Eliza Knight and I equally enjoyed the story and the narration. I recommend this to readers who enjoy yummy highlanders!

    Story
    "Very disappointing"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There isn't the tension expected in a "stolen bride" novel. There are many contradictions in the dialog and much of the story appears to have been taken from Julie Garwoods' Shadow Music novel, including much of the dialog which was almost verbatim.


    Has The Highlander's Reward turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love the genre and will read more of it, but doubt I will read another by this author


    Have you listened to any of Corrie James’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I've listened to Corrie James. I thought she did a very good job.


    Was The Highlander's Reward worth the listening time?

    No, there was no excitement and just a so so story


    Any additional comments?

    Save your credit or money and read/listen to a Julie Garwood or Amanda Quick novel.

    Story
    "Disliked Hero's name, Trite but Enjoyable"

    Honestly, I didn't like the first few chapters at all, and so had a bit of a hard time continuing to read after the first half hour. Once in the middle of the battle at Stirling and her being whisked to safety I got a bit more engrossed. I hardly had occasion to put it down for more than a few minutes after their marriage. The premise was a bit trite, but I liked that for once the girl knew how to defend herself. The plot was pretty predictable, both in regards to their relationship, as well as the conflicts and potential conflicts with their families and scorned betrotheds. But that predictability didn't take away from the enjoyment. And there were more than enough steamy seduction scenes peppered throughout- most were very specific graphically, but never crude. Frankly worded and hot, but tasteful.

    At first the narrator's affected male voices made me grit my teeth, but they smoothed a little, and I got more accustomed to Magnus' voice. The range of female voices was fine, and otherwise was a good performance, cadence-wise and no lack of clarity of dialogue. I always enjoy good Scottish accents.

    Overall, a good listen, but not the most original or fantastic Scottish romance I've ever read...

    "Eliza Knight is one of my favorite authors"
    What about Corrie James’s performance did you like?

    Corrie is very good I also look for her as the narrator now.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I'm listening to it for the second time

    "Great Highlander Story"

    Short and sweet story about Magnus Sutherland a highland warrior who marries a Lady Arbella English woman to save her life after he rescues her from rebels and she is separated from her father. The chemistry between the two characters develop and we have a highlander love story.
    Great narration can't wait to listen to book two.
