Gladiator meets Fight Club in the Scottish Highlands in this gripping series from USA Today bestselling author Kathryn Le Veque

As the bastard son of a duke, Magnus Stewart's royal blood has been a curse. Lured by the mystique and riches of the legendary fight club, Ludus Caledonia, Magnus uses his anger and bitterness to battle his way to the status of a prized gladiator known as The Eagle.

Diantha de Mora has heard of The Eagle, and in desperation, she seeks his help to escape the men pursuing her. Magnus comes to her aid, and in one night, his fate is changed forever. Mutual attraction is instant, but with enemies at every turn, it'll take muscle and a miracle for them to make it to the Highlands alive. There, Magnus can reclaim his destiny, as Diantha guides his heart home.


Magnus Stewart is the bastard son of a Duke and has suffered for it most of his life.  That was until he was taken in and trained by the best fight Guild in Scotland. Now he is the best warrior they have.  He glories in the adulation of the crowds,  and has put the past far behind him. 
Diantha de Mora has been an unwilling ward of the Duke since she was a child.  Now she is betrothed to the heir ,but there is no way she can allow any marriage to happen.  
This is a great historical romance / adventure where both our lead characters have been deceived by the same powerful man.  The humour and the fights are a huge part of this story.  Our hero's ego is massive, with good reason.  Our gentle heroine just wants to find a way home. 
This is part of a fantastic series.  Each book could be read on it's own, but the series is best read in order.  I have read and loved all of them . There is so much depth to all of the characters.  This time we even get a little insight into Clegg, the man behind the games. 
I can easily see this growing into a much bigger series. 
I loved every page.
