BOOK ONE: The Stolen Bride Series

She belonged to another... But was destined to be his...

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?

ABNA 2013 Contest - Publishers Weekly
This fun and true-to-genre romance novel is set in the Scottish highlands during the time of upheaval in the days of William Wallace's rebellion against the British. The novel is full of period appropriate steamy fun that is never repetitive or clichéd. The powerful yet sensitive Magnus and the saucy and beautiful Arbella are a winning pair in this Scottish themed romance that even boasts cameos from William Wallace himself.

FANTASTIC!!! I can't wait for October 2012 for the 2nd book in the Bride Series. Not only were the main character's well written, but also the secondary character's had alot of depth too, and this will make the rest of the series hard to wait for. Well worth your time and money on the book. This was my first book by this author, and will not be the last.

Eliza Knight has done it again. The Highlander’s Reward marks the beginning of a new series that already has me panting (no pun intended) for more. Arbella de Mowbray is tempted to ditch her father who is escorting her to her betrothed. She doesn’t want to marry Marmaduke Stewart, an English Baron living in Scotland. Before she’s able to come up with a plan, her party is attacked and she finds herself fighting for her life. In the thick of the battle, Magnus Sutherland, Laird of his clan, spots the beauty struggling with her attackers, and whisks her away to safety. Magnus’s party has just delivered his sister to her betrothed in the Lowlands, and with Arbella in tow, Magnus continues on toward home. An incident with one of his men when they stop for a break, convinces him the only way to keep Arbella safe is to marry her. His promise to marry another, and Arbella’s betrothal, doesn’t factor into his decision. I won’t tell more of the story so as not to spoil the fun. Ms. Knight has just added another wonderful story to her list of captivating books. And the fact this is the start of a whole new Eliza Knight series about Highlanders is exciting. The writing is quick paced and lively. Humor is sprinkled throughout. Magnus is a bear with a puppy’s heart, and Arbella is brave, honorable, and strong. They are a great couple. The Highlander’s Reward was my reward for being smart enough to grab this wonderful book as soon as it hit the cyber shelves. If you’re smart, you’ll grab it, too. Well done, Ms. Knight! Another winner.

This book was a wonderful page turner! I read it in 24 hours and had a smile on my face when I was done. The writing was great and the story flowed smoothly. I can't wait for the second book.

This was a great story with strong characters. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I am excited to read more books in this series as they are published.

First of all, I paid 99 cents for this book and I am really glad about that - would have been very disappointed if I pa- you get what you pay for. Totally predictable, simply written story, in fact, quite adolescent. Could have been a good story if there was more detail - the story seemed rushed right from the get go. I could not even get a good feel for the characters - not enough description - characters didn't seem real enough. Quick bathroom read - that's the best it a cent more!

A swoon worthy romance I love me a Scottish romance. And this one was a little different than the many many others that I have read. This time he saves her, than marries her to save her some more. And this time it’s not about rival clans…oh no. It’s the war between the English and the Scottish in the 1200s and a certain Brave-hearted William Wallace ever makes a littler appearance. So it tickled the historian in my a little. Then there were the characters. Arbelle…she willing admits that she can somewhat fight, but that in a battle she may not be that good. But, she still tries. Points to her. Then there is Magnus…the big softy. Or so you think. He is a good man, but then he is determined to woo her. He says he won’t kiss her until she asks, but he likes the process of making her ask. Teasing her at every moment. She has an iron will I tell you. There were some things that I found a little off, like the fact that she falls for him in about two days. However, taking into consideration he time and the fact that he saves her twice and is a complete gentlemen…he’s a keeper and ever woman would know it. There was a lot of swooning going on. Good: Arbella—a fighter, but not a warrior and willing to admit it. But, stubborn as heck. Love it Magnus—a good guy. A softy. A hunk. A Keeper. Also, there was some battle, and promise of more to come Bad:  The time in which they fall for each other seemed a little far-fetched. I guess I’m not a believe of love at first sight. For those that are they will probably love this.  Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall I found the characters interesting and the story line interesting as well. I never had to re-read anything or got confused (expect sometimes trying to remember who was who). Instead I was whisked away to a land filled with hot plaid-covered warriors with warm hearts that, in turn, warmed mine.

The best thing I can say about this book is that it was well edited. The characters had no depth, the setting felt modern even though it was supposed to be Scotland in 1297, and the story was sooooo predictable with no tension or conflict to draw the reader in. I made it to page 360 out of 726 before finally giving up...and I NEVER leave a book unfinished! I typically read a new book every two or three days, most of which are either free or $.99 Nook books. This book was one of the worst I've read in a long time. I can't imagine how there are so many positive reviews, unless they are from friends of the author or publisher. Spare yourself from the disappointment- skip this one!!!

I loved this book and can't wait to read the rest in the series. It is a page turner. I finished the entire book in two days. I would definitely reccomend this book. If you enjoy this book, you will love "Ransom" by Julie Garwood.

Nice story. Predictable. No real surprises but a nice steady read. Could have used a little editing. Didn't need to be 726 pages. Could have used a little more conflict. The problems they had were too easily solved. But still nicely written.

An incredible Scottish Romance from Eliza Knight! "The Highlander's Reward" completely enveloped me into its sensual and passionate storyline from the very beginning all the way through to the end. I can't wait for the release of the next in her series!

I really enjoyed reading the prequil to this novel so it was a no brainer to get the second. I was slightly dissapointed. Everything happened to easily. Magnus is supposed to be very stubborn and against marraige but then hes happily married without the slightest resistance. Just seemed like the novel could use some more conflict for all the characters. Overall good writing for the genre. I am willing to buy the next book to hopefully be more interesting.
