Eric Murray, the youngest of his brothers, is determined to gain his rightful inheritance after 13 years of bitter dispute with his father's family. Starting out alone to confront his tight-fisted kinsmen, he encounters a chestnut-haired beauty set upon by thieves. When she begs for Eric's protection for herself and her infant nephew, Eric promises to deliver them to the safety of her family.
Bethia Drummond has tried desperately to ignore her attraction to the azure-eyed stranger. Still, Eric Murray is Bethia's only hope of escaping her ruthless kin, who plan to kill her and her orphaned nephew and claim their inherited land. Then Bethia learns that Eric, too, is seeking land and coin from his own kin - her family's closest allies. How could she love a man she might one day be forced to stand against? And yet she cannot ignore what her troubled heart knows - that this proud knight is her very destiny.

"Those who enjoy Ms. Howell's exuberant writing style and a well-drawn Scottish setting should not miss Highland Promise." (Romantic Times)
As with all the Murray books - they are filled with... yes, I'll say it again, HHH (Handsome Highland Hunks) and this one has the most handsome but he is so much more than a pretty face - he's loyal, brave, and true.
This one seemed to pack so much into it - lasses to be won, battles to plan, the King to see, old enemies to kill, find out who your true kin is, a birthright to claim back, a bride to woo bed and wed etc etc etc that you can't help but be impressed at HH's writing abilities as she entwines the plot with lots of sub plots effortlessly.
Worth a credit? Yes and I've happily spent the credits and downloaded all he Highland books.
I really liked this series & hated to see it end. The narrator was good I'm really glad the same one was used for the entire series. It made it easy to slip back into the story. I hope to listen to more highland romances from Hannah.
