An excerpt from THE HIGHLANDER’S HELLION:
Copyright © Eliza Knight 2018
Warmth surrounded Greer, cocooning her in a decadent cloud. She snuggled closer to the heat, smiling in her sleep.
Something niggled at the back of her brain, as though she were trying to remember something important. What was it?
And then she bolted upright in bed, recalling exactly what she was supposed to remember. She’d nearly drowned.
She jerked around to face the wide-eyed gaze of a man—a very handsome man—but still a man!
“I’m naked,” she gasped, pressing her hands to her breasts to hide them from where the blanket had fallen.
“Aye.” The voice was gruff, filled with sleep and grumpiness.
She felt him slip from the bed, unable to make eye contact with him. Oh dear heavens…
The chamber was completely unfamiliar to her. Not one at her own castle. Not one at any castle she’d ever been to. The wood floor was bare of rushes.
Weapons lined the wall, and there was a single wardrobe beside the chamber door. To the left of the hearth were a small table and two large chairs. Chairs fit for a giant. Or from the looks of the man she couldn’t bear to view just yet—chairs fit for him.
The shutters over the window were closed, so she couldn’t get a good look outside to perhaps judge from the landscape where she was. Which meant she had to rely on the stranger whose bed she’d been in. Naked.
She wouldn’t have thought last night, as she floated in the darkened sea, that her situation could get any worse. But it would not be the first time she’d been wrong.
“Where am I? Who are ye?”
“Ye dinna recognize me?” He sounded surprised.
Greer squeezed her eyes shut. Had she drowned and gone to Hell?
“Are ye naked, sir?” she squeaked.
“As the day I was born.” Why did he have to sound so gleeful?
Greer fell back on the bed and pulled the blanket up over her head, feeling her face heat with shame. She could die now. Right now would be fine. Somehow, she’d managed to drown herself and had either become a man’s mistress or married him without her knowledge. Either way, her da was going to murder her, and her mother would be heartbroken.
“Bring me a sword,” she croaked, her voice coming out muffled with the thick pile of blankets on her face.
Even still, he seemed to have heard her. “Are ye going to finish me off then, lass?”
Finish him off? “I canna comprehend what that means right now, but I do plan to finish myself.”

Series: The Sutherland Legacy, #3
Release Date; November 20, 2018
Lady Greer, daughter of Magnus & Arbella, is a hellion and a free spirit that cannot tolerate the thought of being kept from doing what she loves, but that is exactly what happens when her father forbids her to sail. In an act of defiance, she takes her boat out alone and gets caught in a storm.
Roderick McCulloch aka Grim has known more than his share of loss, his mother who died giving birth, his father who was killed in an ambush and his beloved sister Jessica who was a troubled soul who took her own life. Roderick has decided that he is better off without love and the pain it brings, as laird, he has too many people depending on him to lose himself in emotion and the last time he contemplated marriage he was almost crippled for life…
After almost a decade of peace, Ina Ross is starting trouble on the McCulloch lands again – raiding and stealing livestock. Grim needs to restore the stolen property to prove to his clan, he is worthy of the title Laird. After a successful night of retrieving his animals and learning information about Ina, he goes to the beach to think. But he doesn’t find the peace he was seeking, instead he finds Greer, the woman that 2 years ago he considered marrying – until she almost killed him with a spear, on the brink of death. He saves her and takes her to his castle.
The next day he finds her awake and tells her he will take her home – she begs him to take her across land rather than by boat and he agrees. They set out and they each begin to discover how much they have in common and how suited they are. But before they can even think about acting on their feelings they will have to overcome ambushes, a demented villain, angry fathers and misunderstandings.
I thought this was a good addition to the Sutherland Legacy and it was nice to catch up with Magnus and Arbella as well as Greer’s sisters and brothers. Liam obviously has something going on and I personally can’t wait to read his story. The book was well written and the romance was a very slow burn – I found myself getting annoyed with them both and thinking, just kiss already!! But, overall it was a good book with a lot of emotion, a few laughs, action and a very sweet ending.
