Publisher's Summary

When Cameron MacAlpin learns the identity of the golden beauty tossed before him as a debt payment, he can't believe his fortune! For cat-eyed Avery Murray is the perfect weapon to use against Payton Murray - Avery's brother - who dishonored Cameron's own sister. Yet his plan to deliver the same insult and avenge his clan is thwarted by spirited Avery herself, who tempts him to forget everything but the passion coursing through his blood. Still, a knight of the Highlands owes his allegiance to his clan before all else - even his heart.

Avery is outraged at her captor's accusations against her brother. Though he makes it no secret that he intends to use her to avenge his sister's lost honor, he adds to her fury by vowing to take her by seduction, rather than force. Worse, she knows deep down that this virile knight stirs her as no other man ever has. Courageously, passionately, she gives him freely what he vows to take - her body and her heart - knowing that she could lose all on the chance of everlasting love.

Critic Reviews

"Hannah Howell's legion of fans will delight in yet another installment of her Highland series. Funny, yet heart-warming and poignant, Highland Knight is just the story for an armchair vacation into days of yore where knights were bold and lassies sassy." ( Romantic Times)

ANOTHER BRILLIANT MEDIEVAL MYSTERY UNFOLDS

Firstly, I've somehow listened to the series out of order as I've missed out books 2 and 3 but I can't see it matters so, my point is, this could easily be a stand alone listen.

I'm a real sucker for the handsome, hunky, kilt wearing, claymore wielding, historical Highland warrior who has a quest to fulfil or a wrong to put right - so call me shallow and count me in - and luckily for me this has it all. Unfortunately Highlander Laird Cameron didn't bargain to like the high spirited Avery, his hostage, so much and he soon trust, wants, needs and desires her and they spent many sex filled nights during the journey back to Scotland from France sharing more than just his tent.

There are tense times in the beginning as DeVeaux and his army want Avery back so there's battles, and high jinks as they try to outwit him. The hours are filled with some funny, likeable and charming characters who all get embroiled in this adventurous tale that has passion, friendships, sex, laughs, plot twists, desire and heartbreak as, in the end, Cameron must choose between his duty or his love.

Worth a credit? Yes, and if you can, invest in the whole of the Murray Clan's romantic adventures - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Great story, poor narrator

Love, intrigue, betrayal and a Highland Laird, great story and well written but I can't get past the narration. It's odd but because Angela Dawe does great voices that are very believable but the in between parts were annoying. It was an odd combination of good and bad. I think if it doesn't bother you, you will be ok.

Another great addition to the series.

So far this series has been consistently good. Great story with lots of passion and interesting twists. Great narration by Ms. Angela Dawe. This series should be read in order but it can easily also be read as a stand alone. Worth a credit!

Highland Knight

I read this book first and it got me interested enough to go back and read the previous 4 books. Angela Dawe does a great job narrating this series. I enjoyed these books enough so that in the end I will probably read them all.

The Best

Would you consider the audio edition of Highland Knight to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the book. I really enjoyed the audio version.

What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

I really like Angela Dawe's performance. She does an awesome job with the Scots accents. I have listened to other stories that she performs, always does a great job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really enjoyed the times in the book when the two cousins got into trouble. Very funny.

Another great addition to the series!

This is a very good series. I really like how the author connected things in this book to others in her series. Angela Dawe is a very good narrator for this kind of story. The story flowed well and kept me interested to the end. I hope there are more in this series to come the Murry family is wonderful.

Don't ever try to make plans .....

I really enjoyed this well rounded story. It had intrigue, lots of humor, and during the first quarter, danger. Danger for the plans of each and every scheming character who was going to solve all their problems by "using" the others. Then what happens? LOVE.
Don't really care for the narrator's accent tho...
