An injured warrior… a lady who won’t let him fail…

Betrothed to a princess until she declares his battle wound has incapacitated 
him as a man, Sir Niall Oliphant is glad to step aside and let the spoiled royal
 marry his brother. He’s more than content to fade into the background with his
 injuries and remain a bachelor forever, until he meets the Earl of Sutherland’s
 daughter, a lass more beautiful than any other, a lass who makes him want to
 stand up and fight again.

As daughter of one of the most powerful earls and Highland chieftains in 
Scotland, Bella Sutherland can marry anyone she wants—but she doesn’t 
want a husband. When she spies an injured warrior at the Yule festival who 
has been shunned by the Bruce’s own daughter, she decides a husband in
 name only might be her best solution.

They both think they’re agreeing to a marriage of convenience, but love and 
fate has other plans…

Oh my God what a wonderful story. This was truly an 
amazing book. I loved it this is my first book in the series but 
it will not be my last. This look is so well-written in and 
thoroughly thought through. 

This is Bella and Niles story. Nile is the Wounded Highlander
 who just wants to die. Is through losing what he handles he 
does not want to live in this world anymore. He is betrothed 
to the princess but the spiteful woman doesn't want a man 
who is not cool she continuously jams Manning so much so
 that you can Fox the story taking her to call off the 
engagement. But its Christmas time fallacies now in the 
spiteful things that the princesses to him and calling off their 
engagement and she wants nothing more than to wed him 
herself. An answer bother to set up but her father does not 
just set up the marriage he challenges now to prove his worth
 at the tournament. Is he sees that he needs this more than 
anyone else show the key is still the warrior. This is a 
beautiful love story and I can't wait to read more in the series.

Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you 
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book, 
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
 when you do; they value your opinions too.

“I fear I am lost,” he ground out.
“Then let me save ye.” There was a slight tremor in her jaw that showed behind the strength, the teasing, she was vulnerable, too. But how? Why? “Now go ahead and kiss me.”
“Kiss ye?” He stared at her lush lips, wanting more than anything to do what she asked.
“Aye. I did not entertain ye. Take your prize.”
Niall stared down at her creamy face, her wide blue eyes, and felt his body stir. She was so beautiful. So cunning. So ornery. Lord, but he wanted her. Wanted to fight to prove he could have her. To prove to her that he wasn’t broken. “A kiss from ye is not a prize, but a gift.”
“Then accept your gift,” she whispered.
Accept his gift. Accept the thing he’d dreamed about for nearly a decade. Niall bent and brushed his lips over hers. At the sudden contact, she sucked in a breath through her nose, and he instinctively tried to retreat, but she leaned into him.
“This time, I’ll need ye to be my lady,” he murmured.
“And ye will be my knight,” she whispered.
Tentatively, he touched her elbow, sliding his hand down to hers, entwining her trembling fingers with his. He breathed in the heady, sweet scent of flowers and herbs. Her lips were soft, warm and pliant. Sweet.
When had he last kissed a woman? He wasn’t certain. A year or more? And the kisses he’d shared had never been as sweet or tender as this. What was it about Bella Sutherland?
He shook with restrained desire, madness even. Wanting to deepen the kiss and knowing it was too soon, Niall pulled away.
She blinked her eyes open, staring up at him. Dazed. “Will ye fight tomorrow?”
“I will, but not because your father made a marriage between us contingent upon it. Not because ye asked me to.”
Bella nodded, all seriousness as she watched him. “I know.”
“What do ye know?”
Her hands pressed to his thumping heart. “I know ye’re a warrior.”
“I was. But I am no longer.”
“Ye are still. Ye were born to it. When I first met ye, ye were the only one confident enough in your abilities to let a lass fight ye. Confident enough to let a lass name ye her lady.”
“Ye say confident. I say foolish.”
She smiled. “Just because ye’re impaired does not mean ye’re weak. If there is one thing I know about men having grown up in a house full of them, ’tis that once a warrior always a warrior.”
Niall grunted. “Why do ye care so much?”
Bella blinked, then flashed him a radiant smile. “Just a little encouragement.”
He shook his head. “From what I know of ye, my lady, if I had to guess, I’d say ye dinna do anything only a little.”

She laughed. “Ye flatter me, Sir Niall.” She tapped his chest. “In that case, I think we shall get along splendidly.”
