New York Times bestselling author Hannah Howell continues the dramatic Murray saga with this brand-new story of passions surging in the face of fear. . .
Once, Arianna Murray Lucette believed she'd met the man she could always rely on. She was wrong. Now she is fleeing for her life, and when her enemies attack a ship bound for her only refuge, she believes all hope is lost. Until she awakens on Scotland's shore to a pair of the most entrancing blue eyes she has ever seen.
When Sir Brian MacFingal first spots the sun-streaked beauty on the beach, he mistakes her for dead. Soon, however, he discovers a woman more full of life and vitality than he ever dreamed possible. But though he knows he is fit to defend her life—even at risk of losing his own—can such a raw warrior as he ever be worthy of her love?

Comments about Highland Avenger:
Hannah Howell is one of my favourite authors. I read every thing of her's I can get my hands on.
I don't recycle my books I continually reread I enjoy them that much.
Arianna Murray left Scotland to marry a Frenchman in what seemed to be an advantageous match. Then he revealed that his supposed mistress was his first wife and their two young sons are his heirs. When he dies, Arianna flees France with the boys, dodging the bigamist’s brother, who wants to kill the children and gain the family fortune. Returning to Scotland, she accepts Sir Brian MacFingal’s offer to help, and soon they fall in love. Howell is a master at painting the Highlands in its stark beauty, and the race to safety is exhilarating. The love scenes between Brian and Arianna are both passionate and tender as Brian helps her recover from her husband’s abuse. Fans will enjoy cameos from Fiona and Ewan (Highland Warrior) and Jolene and Sigimor (Highland Conqueror) as they help Arianna reach safety, and look forward to the next Murray historical.
