From the bestselling author of the Stolen Bride Series comes a brand new and exciting family saga! For fans of Scottish historical romance, the Sutherland Legacy propels you into the Highlands with tales of daring adventure, irresistible heroes and passion!
Lady Blair Sutherland has always followed the rules. As the youngest of five, she's spent years observing her older siblings misbehaving—but even more importantly she's learned a lot about smoothing over disputes. On a playful dare with her cousins, Blair writes a fictitious note, and puts it in a bottle, but at the last minute refuses to follow along and send it out to sea. As the months pass, she forgets about what she's written until a warrior lays siege to her clan's castle—in her name—claiming her brother is a murderer. For a lass who's never been in trouble—her world is about to turn itself inside out.
Laird Edan Rose has been looking for a way to prove himself to his clan after the murder of his older brother. When he was a lad, his father sent him to foster with Robert the Bruce, but never asked him to return home. Gone all these years serving his king, he has to make his mark and show his clan he has what it takes to lead by finding his brother's killer. When the possible answer to his deliberations comes in the form of a message in a bottle, he wastes no time in taking action. Though he hopes the man responsible for his clan's pain will surrender, Edan is not afraid to wage war. If he has to, he'll lay siege to the castle, rescue the lass, and take out his enemies, gaining the respect he seeks.
When a Highlander rides on her brother's castle, Blair is aware the blame lies at her feet. If the only way to clear her family's name is by giving herself up to a stranger and helping him find the true assassin—for she's certain it is not her brother—then she is willing to be the sacrificial lamb. But once she's in Edan's arms, the only thing that comes to mind is wondering if his kiss is as powerful as his embrace. Having only desired to show his worth to his clan, Edan is now determined to prove himself worthy of Blair's heart. However, their passion comes to a halt when the one who wanted his brother dead, decides the two of them are a loftier prize.

Sad it’s over!
I can’t say enough about the Sutherland series. Read from Magnus Sr. to Blair’s story and am truly sorry the family storyline ended. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters both men and women, the plots, the escape from dire situations, the strength of character, the wit, and how they loved-in each Sutherland story! Loved Arbella, my fav, especially her fight. I happened to come upon Eliza after reading Julie Garwood’s Highlander books which I enjoyed. Picked up Highlander’s Reward and devoured the series in 2 weeks of late night reading. Loved, loved, loved!!! Maybe you will do a Family reunion?
