After stealing his armor, she heads to the Rose Citadel tournament to fight for her freedom from a man she never agreed to wed. Yet, even as Isolde is trying to escape one man, another has set his sights on her, one who is determined to catch her attention and one she cannot help but crave.

What are readers saying about THE HIGHLANDER’S LADY KNIGHT?

“This was an amazing story with a heroine that will not meekly allow herself to be used as a pawn and a hero that will do anything to protect her. This book has a little of everything, great leads, lots of action, steamy love scenes, secrets, deceptions, betrayal, some amusing moments, an adorable dog and a very hard-won HEA.”


“A sweet tale of two people lost who may find their way to one another if they will be able to open their heart and see beyond appearances.”

“I must admit that I practically devoured this book, it was so good. Madeline Martin writes a fascinating plot and Cormac and Isolde have such charismatic personalities you can’t help but love them. I found myself wanting to turn the pages faster than I could read them to see if and how they would end up together. This was truly a spellbinding story that had me mesmerized from beginning to end.”
