And we're at week thirteen of #MedMonSpring21 Blog hop with our First Kiss Theme. This is such a great theme and really what romance is all about. Today I have the incomparable Eliza Knight with The Highlander's Reward. And you can find my next snippet from Lachlann's Legacy at her blog. Enjoy!
“Why were ye going to Stirling?” He had his suspicions that she was meant to marry. There was no other reason for a beautiful English maiden to make the trip and without a maid unless one had been promised upon her arrival. If that were the truth of it, he was in a lot more trouble than he originally thought. A spurned fiancé—English at that—would not take lightly having his bride stolen.
Arbella just shook her head. “I shall tell you at another time. Let us get the deed done and be on our way.”
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?
