They called him The Priest. Maybe because of his billowing black robes and the steel crucifix that hung around his neck. Or perhaps it was because those who met him were compelled to pray. But Duncan Mackay was anything but a saint. He was a sinner—a paid mercenary. Until he met her, and she made him want to change his ways.
Lady Heather Sutherland, has never been compelled to follow rules. And this time, she’s gone too far. Following in the footsteps of her brothers and cousins, she chooses to join the fight for Scottish freedom—and gets herself abducted by a handsome, rogue warrior, whose touch is sweet sin.
Duncan’s duty was clear—steal Heather away from Dunrobin Castle. What he didn’t expect, was to be charmed by her spirit and rocked by her fiery kiss. Now, he doesn’t want deliver her to those who hired him, instead he wants to keep her all to himself.
Today would prove to be sweltering if the heat before dawn was any indication. And since Heather had an aversion to heat, she was more than likely going to be in a sour mood. The heaviness of the many layers she wore didn’t help the situation. Nor what she was about to do.
The figure didn’t move.
Heather stared at the cross, at the man in robes, hypnotized by his stealthy, calculated movements, her eyes wide and immobilized. She finally blinked when they stung with dryness.
“Enough bluster, my lady. I need ye to come with me.”

The highlander’s Sin by Eliza Knight is yet another great addition to “The Stolen Bride” series. While, #6 in this fantastic series, it can be read as a stand alone. Set against a Scottish Highlands backdrop in the 1300’s. What an exciting series!
Duncan Mackay, a paid mercenary known as the “Priest”, despises the Sutherland clan. A saint he is not! When he was a young lad of about seven summers old, he watched his clan, and his parents murdered by the Sutherland clan. Now he’s on a quest to revenge their deaths. Lady Heather Sutherland, is the youngest sister to the Laird of the Sutherland clan. She’s spirited, strong-well, feisty and trouble for Duncan and his poor heart.
Duncan and Heather has so much to offer readers. Their witty banter helps move “The Highlander’s Sin” along. The danger, adventure, action, romance and amongst the turmoil they manage to find love, keeps readers on their toes. But will they finally find the HEA their both seek? Or lose all to a past that was beyond their control?
I loved Heather’s spunk, her way of managing to be uplifting during trails, was fantastic. She was a bit needy at times, which was her way of coping. Ah, Duncan, what can one say of a brawn Highlander, handsome as sin, brave and one who would protect his hostage with his own life. A heartwarming love story with twists and turns and plenty of action to keep readers turning pages. Ms. Knight manages to mix in some humorous moments into a story of turmoil and love.
I love Eliza Knight, her writing style is contagious to readers and fans alike. She writes so vividly and masterfully, fans will get caught up in a whirlwind of Scottish history and characters who capture their hearts.
