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?

    "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.

    This is a good one. If you love these Scottish romances, this one can be added to your list of good books to read.

    "quick passed and entertaining"

    each book in the series can stand alone without a lot of back story. The story is told in the point of view of the two main characters which I found refreshing

    Story
    "Amateurish and lacking"

    So excited to read a highlander book and then I got this amateurish attempt, highly disappointing. The narrator sounded like a screatching English woman and all female characters sounded over the top, and the male characters weren't much better! Then the drama felt totally forced and the characters didn't stay in character, totally weird. One minute we have a simpering noble woman who is terrified to be in Scotland and is beyond jittery at the sound of battle....the next instant she is pulling axes and brandishing a sword, only to go back to simpering, and then back to Xena warrior princess.....WHAT?!?!?!

    In short, I liked the basis of the story, but the delivery was not executed well at all. Take a pass on this book.

    Story
    "Fantasy Time!"


    Parts of "The Highlander's Reward" were so unbelievable it was humorous. Many times I found myself shaking my head and smiling. It wasn't a bad book--it all depends on what you are looking for. I don't mind a little fantasy...humor is a good thing, even if it was not written to be humorous, in my opinion.

    Eliza Knight is a talented author with the ability to create mental pictures without the use of boring 'filler words', and Corrie James' performed well.

    Although the sexual content was explicit the scenes did not dominate the story, as in some Highland stories.

    Story
    "Too many modern day phrases....skip this one."

    I didn't care for this one....the story was so-so at best, and littered with so many modern day phrases that it took away from the reason I read romances in the first place - escapism.

    He was "fired up", or he "gave it a shot", or "she messed him up"....there were plenty more phrases like this, and they just weren't in keeping with the dialog of a 13th century person. I found it both distracting and irritating.

    The characters were superficial, and had little, if any, depth. The main female character was very wishy-washy....I didn't like her at all. The overall impression I got was that this book was written hurriedly, as if to meet a deadline, by a rather young author...one without access to a thesaurus. Disappointing listen.

    I thought the narrator was pretty good though, given what she had to work with....

    But I will not download any more books by this author.

    I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.

    "A verra nice Highlander tale"

    I enjoyed this story. I thought the narrator brought the story to life. I enjoyed that though they both kept their secrets they didn't let them get in the way of how they truly felt for each other.

    Story
    "Who does not love a Highlander"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Highlander's Reward to be better than the print version?

    I love reading books, but sometimes it's also just great to be able to close your eyes and listen. And this is one of them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Arbella, because she is just so naiv, but she can still fight.


    What does Corrie James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She can give the book more life.


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

    Yes, and i did that.


    Any additional comments?

    Magnus and Arbella is the true highlander story. The Highlander safe en young englich girl.<br/>He is bewitched by her beauty and decides to keep her. And of course there are some obstacles they have to go through.
