The Highlander’s Triumph by Eliza Knight is an interesting Medieval Romance, set in 1298
Highlands, Scotland. #5 in “The Stolen Bride” series, but it can be read as a stand alone.
“He was a warrior fighting for Scottish freedom. She was his enemy’s mistress.”
Laird Brandon Sinclair is a brawn highlander, who has sworn his life to the Scottish clause and his fealty to Robert the Bruce. Lady Mariana, is a French lady, who was given to King Edward as his mistress. She was sent to a village to draw the Bruce’s men into a trap. All she wants is to escape the tyrannical King Edward, but she’s left in a burning village, where Brandon and his men find her. Was she sent to spy by Longshanks?
Brandon and Mariana are a complex but intriguing couple. An English King’s mistress and a Scottish warrior, will they find love and a HEA?
Slow at times, but generally a good Scottish Romance, although, “The Highlander’s Triumph” was not my favorite of this series, I found I was invested in the story, the plot and the characters.
With danger around every corner, sparks flying between Brandon and Mariana, treachery, and more, this story does have much to recommend it to readers.
I have been waiting patiently for “The Highlander’s Sin”, which is next on my list to read. “The Stolen Bride” series is a complicated, compelling and intriguing series. I would recommend reading Brandon and Mariana’s story! A good Scottish Romance!
