The Highlander’s Secret Vow

I swear, I will never let anyone hurt ye again, lass.

The Highlander’s Secret Vow


Publisher’s Synopsis:
When Liam Sutherland was a lad of fifteen summers, he saved a Sassenach lassie’s life, and secretly vowed to always keep her safe. As the prized warrior for his clan, and youngest son of the laird, his responsibilities at the castle continue to mount, and just when he’s about to forge a name for himself, he receives a mysterious missive that has the power to make him leave everything behind.

Cora Segrave, daughter of an English baron, owes her life to the Scot who saved her years ago during a border raid. When her family home is destroyed, and they are taken prisoner, there is only one man she knows can save her—the one man she’s never been able to forget.

Answering Cora’s plea for aid will jeopardize Liam’s reputation, and maybe even cause a rift with his family, but a vow is a vow, and he cannot turn his back on her—or his heart. The only choice he has is to save her before it’s too late, and pray his family and king will understand. In saving her, just maybe he’ll be able to save himself.

Rellim’s Thoughts
The Highlander’s Secret Vow is the fourth book in the Sutherland Legacy series by Eliza Knight. Again, while each book stands on its own – characters and a few minor events from previous books are mentioned and it’s best to listen to these in order.

While I truly enjoyed the others, this is probably my favorite so far. I just adore Knight’s mix of sweet, sexy, mystery, suspense and a little humor. These books are so easy to listen to and Liam and Cora are particularly endearing. Most of the conflict come from external sources so there’s little unnecessary angst. I also love that she gives the characters plenty of time to get to know each other and I always feel like they’re perfect for each other.

The pacing of this one was fantastic with a big rescue, travel, a battle, and several people who can’t be trusted. I really loved the ending and the chance to do a little catching up on the other Sutherlands. I do admit to wishing one character would have fallen off a horse or something given their behavior, but Knight is kinder than I am.

Looking forward to the final book of the Sutherland siblings, featuring Blair, The Highlander’s Enchantment.

Antony Ferguson continues to be a great match with Knight’s writing and these characters. It’s so easy to dive right back into this world with Ferguson in my ears.

Content Warning (may contain spoilers): Attempted rape. The same antagonist tries twice. I would consider the description of the first attempt minimal on details, but it is mentioned several times. The second is a present-tense attack that features physical assault & ends in the female character fighting back & nearly killing her attacker.
