From the bestselling author of the Stolen Bride Series comes a brand new and exciting family saga! For fans of Scottish historical romance, the Sutherland Legacy propels you into the Highlands with tales of daring adventure, irresistible heroes and passion!​

Betrothed to a princess until she declares his battle wound has incapacitated him as a man, Sir Niall Oliphant is glad to step aside and let the spoiled royal marry his brother. He's more than content to fade into the background with his injuries and remain a bachelor forever, until he meets the Earl of Sutherland's daughter, a lass more beautiful than any other, a lass who makes him want to stand up and fight again.

As daughter of one of the most powerful earls and Highland chieftains in Scotland, Bella Sutherland can marry anyone she wants—but she doesn't want a husband. When she spies an injured warrior at the Yule festival who has been shunned by the Bruce's own daughter, she decides a husband in name only might be her best solution.

They both think they're agreeing to a marriage of convenience, but love and fate has other plans…

Sigh. I was not prepared for the emotions that came through the pages on this wonderful story. Eliza Knight has captured the very essence of feelings of the wounded hero and the hard recovery that most of us can only imagine. Sir Niall Oliphant comes back from battle wounded and with injuries he has a hard time healing from and trying to overcome. Rejected by a woman he was betrothed to due to those injuries, he has no hope of marrying and being happy. But fate has another plan and he is offered to marry Bella Sutherland, someone he has known since childhood and held a strong regard for through the years. Bella has her own reasons for never wanting to marry but when presented with Niall, she feels everything will work out. Thinking their marriage would be in name only due to his wounds, it is amazing to watch these two reclaim their friendship and see the true affection grow between them. This is truly a story that can be related to even today. Overcoming physical and mental wounds through the support of family, friends and a true mate who was meant to be. This book held me captive from the first page and it made me tear up as well as tug at my heart for all the right reasons. I just want to thank Eliza for bringing us another story that will stay in my thoughts for long to come. Lori Dykes

4.5 Stars! So, if you've read my reviews before, you already know I love historical books. What you might not know is that in my 20's (a loooong time ago, LOL), I was a Virginia Henley fan and adored her Highlander books. Still have them and even if I haven't re-read them in a couple of years, they're still close to my heart. The Highlander's Gift has the same ineffable quality to it than in those books. It had a compelling storyline, a great cast of characters and a romance that made me sigh dreamily and long for my own Highlander. Bella was strong and resilient, naïve but passionate and very likable. I loved that while she was strong-willed, she wasn't capricious and she knew when to listen to Niall so as not to fall in harm's way. Niall was very alpha, even when he was vulnerable and depressed after losing his arm in battle. I loved that he was so chivalrous with Bella and that he actually listened to her. While this was pretty much insta-love, it worked great for them, considering their backstory. They had great chemistry, fit together perfectly, and damn, if they weren't hot, hot, HOT together! *fans self* I also adored Walter and I hope we'd get to read his story with Elizabeth, just because I want more of him, even if I was so annoyed at her. Philip and Mary were so sweet, too. I liked Bella's parents, but I wasn't too sure about Niall's until the end. Regarding the MacGregor arc, ugh, I hated him, he was awful. I would've liked his motives for hating Niall to be a little less immature, though, but I guess it moved the story along. Other than that, I definitely have no trouble recommending this book! It was all I was hoping for and more. I'll definitely be checking out more books by Ms. Knight. *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement. ***

THE HIGHLANDER'S GIFT by Eliza Knight is the 8th Book in The Stolen Bride series. This is the story of Sir Niall Oliphant and Bella Sutherland. This is the first book I have read in this series, so for me it was a standalone book. Nail Was injured in battle making it so that his future wife would not marry him which left him to go on his way to becoming a recluse of bachelor. Bella did not want to get married but with little choice she thought that Nail would be a safe choice. But their feeling start to grow making them both want more. Exciting read and one that is hard to put down.

The Highlander’s Gift by Eliza Knight Stolen Bride #8 The Sutherland Legacy #1 Amazing! I came into this series thinking it was book one of a NEW series only to find out it is book 8 of an ongoing series. That said…I had no trouble following the story and enjoyed it thoroughly! In fact…looking back at previous book blurbs in the series I found out that the heroine is the daughter of Magnus and Arabella who starred in book one of this series and it seems that there is going to be a spinoff series for the progeny of stars of previous books in the series. What a delight this book was! Niall Oliphant and Bella Sutherland meet as children at a tournament and come out tied in the areas they compete in…and though young, develop an admiration for one another that lasts years. Ten or more years later Niall has been to war, lost a limb, is feeling unmanned and is engaged to a princess…a princess he does not and who does not want him. Bella is aging out of the marriage market and for a number of reasons has no desire to marry…not really…not unless Niall should happen to show up and want her. The story of how they end up together, their friendship that grows into love, the warmth and charm and caring and how they thwart a villain all make for a wonderful story that left me feeling good long after I finished the last page. I am eager to read more of this author’s works as I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have read by her so far! Thank you to Barclay Publicity for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars
