Wow, what a sensual and delicious story. It's takes away my breath. Photobucket Better than the First book

Starting to get annoyed with the overuse of the phrase "Where did that thought come from?".

The heroine was intent on becoming a nun because she thought she had no business getting married and having children due to the fact she killed her mother, in childbirth. However, the chit was passionate and horny from the beginning. Which was, of course, his fault for being so manly.

The hero was a nice guy but kept admonishing himself for taking liberties he had no business taking while continuing to tak

The Highlander’s Conquest is book two in the Stolen Bride series and once again I have to say that I REALLY enjoyed yet another wonderful Scottish romance by Eliza Knight.

Eliza writes Scottish historical romances just the way I like them. The story line was fast paced and had some exciting action.

At the end
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Ailah and Blane have one deep hurtful common belief . . .
Oh my yes, yes, yesssssssssssssss. I got my hands on another sexy alpha highlander that knew exactly how to make a girl very, very happy. Surrender in his hands may not have tasted any sweeter but the dreams afterwards will stay with me much longer than the sweetness of sugar. Ailah did not really have a chance once Blane set his sights on her. The vivid description allowed for me to follow the journey clearly in my mind with nothing lost

The Highlander’s Conquest by Eliza Knight is the second in The Stolen Bride series and I enjoyed this one just as much as I did The Highlander’s Reward. Once again I listened to the audiobook narrated by Corrie James who is fast becoming a favorite of mine. She just has such a great voice and perfectly acts out all the different nuances of her characters. While these books are part of a series it’s important to note that they would stand alone quite well.

I loved this story--Mainly because you have two very strong leads who are bound to fall deeply in love. Despite the imminent war and animosity between their countries, Scottish Warrior Blane Sutherland and Lady Aliyah De Mowbray find that they are unable to fight against the pull that makes their love inevitable.

Both of these characters are fabulous and intriguing. Blane is a master of disguise. It all starts out as Blane's brother, Laird Magnus Sutherland entrusts him with the mission of bring

When I saw the second book was about Magnus' brother, Blane, and Arbella's sister,Aliah, I had to read it right away! It was another great Scottish Highlander story!

Blane is sent to England to fetch Aliah to bring her to join them at Dunrobin in Scotland. In order to get Aliah to come with him, Blane has to pretend to be English knowing that Aliah would not go with him otherwise. We find out that Aliah is no pushover as she aims her bow and arrow at Blane’s heart until Blane shows her a forged l

I really love this author's descriptions, you feel as if you're right there with the characters. It was also nice to catch up with Arbella and Magnus from the first book Highlander's Reward. Look forward to reading more by this author.

Thoroughly enjoyable read. :)
I was really captured by Eliza Knight's writing after reading the first book and I really hoped that the second book would be just as exciting as the first one and I was not disappointed.

Blane is a lot like his brothers Magnus and at the same time, he's very different. He's strong-willed, honorable, trust worthy and most importantly a protector. I think that quality is more shown in Blane than in his brother, Magnus.

Aliah is naive. That's the best way to describe her in my opinion. She jumps sin
The Highlander's Conquest (Stolen Bride #2) by Eliza Knight is a fantastic Medieval Scottish Romance set in England and Scotland. While, #2, it can be read as a stand alone.

Very enjoyable book

5 stars because it’s a good, romantic story. The beginning a very different H/h, both with secrets. The journey with intrigue, adventure, sexy, to a very satisfactory end. Blaine is a good, but troubled man. Aliah, a very gentle, pious woman, but at times, a very Kickbutt, passionate one. It is a very exciting, with never a dull moment, journey. They are a very likable couple, that you are pulling for them to face their honest feelings about each other. The recurring character

Very enjoyable.

I have found that both books starting this series have managed to capture my attention and keep it. They are well written and enjoyable. I work in a very intense job, I come home cook supper, eat, clean up and then its my time for awhile. I grab my kindle, my pillow and get in my comfy chair and get away. Now I'll start the next one.

A great book to read! Eliza Knight weaves a tale of deception as Sir Blane and his men are traveling as English men to pick up his new sister in law’s sister,
Lady Aliah. Through out the weeks they traveled they fell in love but an enemy was following them . Lots of events happen and it should be read and enjoy.

Had to skip through way too many repetitive character-thought ramblings while desperately searching for scarce, meaningful dialogue. Plot was tediously unoriginal.

Ever since I read the words “The End” on The Highlander’s Reward, I’ve been waiting for the second book in Eliza Knight’s Stolen Bride series. That is precisely why I bought it the day it was released. I was not disappointed.

"The Highlander's Conquest" is the second book in Eliza Knight's The Stolen Bride series. You don't necessarily need to read these books in order as all of them are very much stand alone stories but you may want to still read them together as there are glimpses of characters from the other books and you get to see how their stories end up somewhat. I really, really enjoyed this hot romance! Highlanders forever!

This is one of those stories where you can guess the ending right from the beginning, but, as they say, the story is all in the journey, and what a journey this was. Knight takes her audience on a suspenseful, captivating journey that sparks your imagination. She combines the heat of forbidden romance with the possibility of many things while remaining firmly placed within the time period in question. This story also had me laughing out loud many times. Things would strike me as so real and poss ...more

I love a good historical romance novel and I'm especially partial to Scottish Highland novels. As this series progresses it is enjoyable. It isn't my favorite series. By for quick, easy and enjoyable reads this is a good series to go with.

As for Blane and Aliah, I enjoyed their little romance. I especially love that Aliah hunted and fought with Blane. She had the right sense of things being that killing is wrong but doing so to save yourself and other is a good thing. I tend to dislike books whe
