Book Description:
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?

My Thoughts About the Book:
I really enjoyed this book. I can't say it was spectacular but it was very enjoyable. I like that it was a simple love story though it did seem to be introducing some more complicated storylines for future books.

Arabella and Magnus are very cute together. Magnus doesn't wish to marry or fall in love but he ends up changing his mind quit easily when Arabella fights her way into his life.

Arabella has been told that Scots are all barbarians only when Magnus rescues her she can't help but see that he's not at all what she thought he'd be.

I do think this idea that the brides are stolen makes it sound as if the brides are totally against being taken away by these highlander's but I think it is really the opposite. They are find with it as long as love is in there future.

This is a great romance book. Not overly complicated. Sweet. Easy read with a touch of history.

The Series:
The Highlander's Reward
The Highlander's Conquest
The Highlander's Lady
The Highlander's Warrior Bride
The Highlander's Triumph

I had no idea there were that many books in the series when I started the first book!

I've never read this. It does kind of remind me of the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. This is also a time travel series, originating in Scotland. I usually don't read romance novels (I prefer suspense novels myself)but I'll take a look at these.

I love Outlander. Huge fan. I even have a community dedicated to it (outlander_watch). This one wasn't a time travel book but a good romance. I love romance so that is mostly what I read with an occasional other genre tossed in. My favorites are historical novels.
