Captured by a Celtic Warrior

Captured by a Celtic Warrior




Bestselling and award-winning authors bring you four never-before-published novellas of searing passions that span the ages. Four fierce warriors from Ireland and Scotland... Four heroines determined to resist them... One dagger steeped in the blood and treachery of kings.

The King's Outlaw, by Kris Kennedy
1193 - Outlawed and on the run, Tadhg O'Malley has one mission: escape with the valuable dagger of Jerusalem before a brutal nobleman hunts him down. Trapped and almost cornered, his plan is simple: kidnap the innocent merchant with the long hair and complicated eyes. Igniting a raging passion is not part of the plan. Neither is falling in love. Both endanger their lives, his mission, and with it, the kingdom.

Taken by the Highlander, by Eliza Knight
1306 - A week before Lady Rose Munro is to wed a neighboring laird, she is abducted on the road by a wicked and dangerously handsome stranger. Highland warrior, Malcolm Montgomery has been ordered by King Robert the Bruce to steal Rose and her son from the suspected traitor she is about to marry-gifting him with an ancient and much sought after dagger as payment. Rose shouldn't trust her captor. Shouldn't feel her body heat at his simple touch, or allow him to press his fervent lips to hers... Malcolm shouldn't be seducing the woman he is sworn to protect. Shouldn't desire her, for she's not meant to be his... Succumbing to passion threatens them both, and falling in love is absolutely not an option.

Stolen by a Highland Rogue, by Vonda Sinclair
1619 - When the infamous dagger is stolen from Highland chief, Dugald MacKerrick, he will do whatever it takes to reclaim it, even abduct the wife of the aristocratic thief, but what if his beautiful French hostage isn't who he thinks she is? Deep in the rugged Scottish Highlands, Dugald discovers not only is his captive, Camille Bouchard, more than he expected, so is the passion raging between them, threatening everything he thought mattered to him.

Her Wicked Highlander, by Jennifer Haymore
1816 - Maxwell White is the newest member of the Highland Knights, an elite mercenary group sworn to protect the Crown. His first assignment is to keep independent and spirited Aila MacKerrick safe from a madman determined to get his hands on a treasure she unwittingly possesses. But Aila isn't going to simply allow some Highlander-as handsome as he might be-to capture her and whisk her away to an abandoned castle. She'll fight to the death for her soon as she rids herself of this pesky, insistent desire that makes her far more inclined to run into his arms than away from them....

I enjoyed each of the four short stories; but, the last story was unbelievable to me ( potential spoiler) I don't believe a small young woman could have I do not believe that the young woman could have accomplished what she did while the knights did much of nothing. I like when the male protects his woman. Good romance.

A slight of hand... catching a traitor... a case of mistaken identity... and thwarting a power hungry noble. This anthology follows how a dagger is passed down through the generations and how others wished to posses it for over 600 years. I really liked this compilation of stories because they are all connected through the dagger. Anthologies often follow a common theme, but are not really tied together like this one is. That is a plus for me. Knowing that all the stories were tied to the dagger, had me excited to continue to each of the following stories, just to see what would happen to it. Most of the authors were new to me, so it was nice to get to know their style of writing and find some new authors that I want to read. That is always a plus! Jennifer's story, Her Wicked Highlander) is book 2.5 in her Highland Knights series. The others seemed like they might also be a part of series by that author, but I couldn't find any information on it... I'm hoping that Kennedy, Knight, Sinclair and Haymore decide to do this again as I really enjoyed reading all four stories. Thanks go out to CrushStar Multimedia via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

CAPTIVATED BY A CELTIC WARRIOR is written by four Best Selling authors in Historical Romance. A collection of novellas, connected by a dagger, (the King Richard dagger), over a span of five hundreds and four generations. Kris Kennedy was a new author to me, but I thoroughly enjoyed her story, which the set the tone for the collection. A collection of well written, fast paced stories. Filled with treachery, danger, passion, deceit, betrayal, an assassination, history, ancestry, and romance. Each story is compelling, intriguing and masterfully written. The characters are engaging, realistic and will tug on your heart strings as you set on the edge of your seat hoping they find their HEA. I strongly recommend this collection and hope to see more from each author on the King Richard Dagger. Brilliantly and expertly written to hold Historical Romance fans in awe. Well done, ladies! A must buy collection! * Received for an honest review* Rating: 5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

3.5* *THE KING’S OUTLAW Kris Kennedy 3.5* This is the first story that I've read by Ms. Kennedy and I really enjoyed it. At first I found it difficult to follow the wording and at times the language did not follow the time period-at least that's how I felt. I soon found the flow and could not put it down. Tadhg intrigued me a great deal. I was unsure if he was good or bad. He did what he needed to to survive and it soon came to light he tried to do it without death. When Tadhg came upon Maggie he saw someone who could be useful to him he just didn't know how much he would come to need her. *TAKEN BY THE HIGHLANDER Eliza Knight 4* This is my first Eliza Knight romance and it won't be my last. I was hooked into the story and couldn't put it down. Malcolm is one hot and honorable alpha highlander and Rose a very strong heroine. She was not about to be kidnapped with out a fight and she gave it her all. Time spent with Malcolm she sees the man he is and learns to trust him. I can't wait to read more books by Ms. Knight. *STOLEN BY A HIGHLAND ROGUE Vonda Sinclair 3* I love highlander historical romance. I love the alpha males and the strong lass'. One of the things I like the best is the strong Scottish brogues. Unfortunately this story did not have that. I enjoyed the story and the main characters, Dugald and Camille but it left me wanting more and dragged a bit. *HER WICKED HIGHLANDER Jennifer Haymore 3.25* I enjoyed this book but at times it was a struggle to get through it. I really liked the characters Max and Aila. They were both strong and honorable people and the state of Scotland. Each of the stories of this anthology had suspense but I think Ms. Haymore did the best with Sutherland , he was truly an evil man.

Captured by the Celtic Warrior consists of hot men, fiesty women and a journey unlike any other. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. As a self proclaimed bookworm I see all types of stories. However romance is where my heart lies. Each story is different but linked by a historical artifact steeped in a mystery. This anthology keeps getting more intriguing with every story and is never dull. The King's Outlaw by Kris Kennedy- It was somewhat scary going into a story blind. This is a new author and I didn't have any expectations. This story was a surprise. Steeped in adventure, Ms. Kennedy creates a story that is believable. The plot is full of surprises. The struggle between mind and heart is the central focus and I want to point out that each character was not what they seemed. There was no obvious solution and that is what drew me in. The story is complex but spellbinding. I am glad I took the chance.

“Four fierce warriors from Ireland and Scotland... Four heroines determined to resist them... One dagger steeped in the blood and treachery of kings.” Anthology of four stories by four authors centered around one ruby embellished dagger…great heroes and heroines in novella length stories that kept this reader up late at night! Each story is also part of separate series written by each author. THE KING'S OUTLAW, by Kris Kennedy 1193 – Oh my…hot, hot, HOT Tadhg O’Malley had me from his first appearance and then came his encounter with Magdalena “Maggie” and that began to set the pages on fire. The two were well matched and fun to spend time with. As I read I hoped they would have more than a fleeting encounter even though Tadhg had a task to accomplish and would not let anyone or anything stand in his way. Loved this story! (Conquerors & Outlaws novella) TAKEN BY THE HIGHLANDER, by Eliza Knight 1306 – Time has passed and the dagger has been handed down over the centuries eventually landing in the hands of Cathal MacKenzie. Cathal has been ordered to kidnap Widow Rose Munro and bring her to the King before she marries a traitor. Their interactions are interesting and filled with attraction for one another. Rose has to question of whether or not she should trust Cathal or trust her betrothed and which man her son Byron will be safer with. The story of growing trust and interest was fun to read. (Conquered Bride novella) STOLEN BY A HIGHLAND ROGUE, by Vonda Sinclair 1619 – Dugald MacKerrick has a short temper and doesn’t always think things through so when the Clan Dagger disappears after the official betrothal ceremony of his sister he kidnaps a woman for ransom that he believes he can trade for the dagger – except – he takes the wrong woman! There is fast riding, an escape attempt by Camille Bouchard, the search for the dagger, marriage candidates to consider and lustful feelings and interactions between Dugald and Camille before there is a happily ever after. Camille is a strong willed, intelligent and competent woman who knows what she wants but is afraid she might not be worthy of a Clan Chief. (Highland Adventures Novella) HER WICKED HIGHLANDER, by Jennifer Haymore 1816 – Maxwell White has been tasked with collecting Aila MacKerrick from her home. He has also been told to make sure the dagger is safe. With a fight on his hands he finally gets Aila to safety and they eventually settle in together to wait for the Highland Knights to capture the villain. By this point in the anthology the dagger has taken on mythic proportions – at least in some eyes – and must be protected at all costs. Max also needs and wants to keep Aila safe and that becomes rather tricky once the villain gets his hands on her. I enjoyed Aila and Max together – she was strong and assertive and no shy miss. (Highland Knights Novella) Thank you to NetGalley and CrushStar Multimedia LLC for the copy of this anthology to read and review.
