While besieging an enemy castle, Laird Douglas Hay comes across the half-frozen body of a lass. She’s obviously one of the enemy, but he cannot allow her to die. Besides, as his captive, she could bring a hefty ransom. He revives her, a task easier managed than her fiery temper and the intense desire heating his veins.

Enchanting the Highlander Anthology

Douglas' family was murdered while he was away and he can't forgive himself. He now spends his time fighting for Robert the Bruce. When they storm the castle of a rival clan Douglas saves Lady Annora from freezing in the snow. They bond while she is his "prisoner" and just need to convince everyone that she isn't a traitor like her brother.

This was cute. Both characters were likeable and though she maybe more combative than she needed to be at times, Annora was

Eliza Knight's "Protected by the Laird" is the #4.5 tale in The Conquered Bride series, but you can read it as a standalone. This series is apparently a spin-off of the Stolen Brides series, but I haven't read that series and you can understand these just fine without reading that series. I just love that Annora and Douglas! They are both so broken from their pasts. Yet they're able to seal their broken edges together and be open-hearted! Just a very sweet and sexy story. I have already ordered ...more

This is the first novella in Enchanting the Highlander and I did not enjoy it. Too much war and misery. She had to be rescued a lot. Just kind of a depressing story over all.

I read this novella as part of the Enchanting the Highlander anthology. It was a great start to this group of Scottish tales. Within the backdrop of the conflict between Robert the Bruce and the Comyns, a love story develops between Annora Comyn and Laird Douglas Hay who is loyal to the Bruce. They connect through the traumatic pasts they suffered. For a novella, there was a good backstory, lots of action and heartfelt passion. It did not feel rushed or abrupt as many novellas do. I am eager to ...more

Loved Annora and Laird Douglas' story. To her surprise, the kind warrior makes her feel things she should not. He is the enemy and she must fight her feelings. I wish this would have been longer.
