An avid Lindsey fan I was most disappointed in the tale of Sheena and Jamie.
This is the first Lindsey tale that I have found hard to stomach ... this was not a page turner for me! I found the storyline (kind of tedius) and characters (most annoying) quite substandard (for a writer like Lindsey!) .... I had to push myself to finish the book! This is NOT a book I will find myself reading ever again.
I expect after reading some of Lindseys other novels I am used to a much higher standard of writing: thus, in three words my comment on this tale is "one of disappointment".

Reading this book, I felt sorry for Sheena and I wished that she could have someone better. Sheena almost dies because of Jamie's temper, and I was annoyed by how Jamie is angry after he believes that Sheena slept with Jameson. He wants his wife to be a virgin, but he's slept with many other women and has not married them. It was also annoying how every time Jamie touches Sheena, she gives in. I don't like that in this book or any other book, because this is the character's weakness, and I don't think that having a man touch a woman would make her will become the same as his in real life. Everytime Sheena is angry with Jamie, he touches her and she gives in. I would not recomend this book.

I am a diehard fan of romance and though i love a good steamy book as much as the next gal "steamy" can't carry a book alone. To many books have horrible dialouge that sounds like something out of a bad B movie. Johanna Lindsey's defining characteristic, in my opinion, is her dialouge, the rapid byplay of characters allows them to become people instead of those lusty people trying to get out of their clothes as if it were a timed olympic event.
"Gentle Feuding" follows the story of jamie and sheena two people from rival clans. Sheena is the redhaired beauty of her clan and jamie is ofcourse the laird of his. He sees sheena bathing in a pool in a glen (don't we all love a little dip every now and again?) and becomes enchanted by her beauty, as does everyone else who sees her. Though some people thought this whole thing of the herione being the legendary beauty that everyone is always falling all over themselves to get is tacky and unbelievable, but instead it added a sense of romanticism to the work. Sheena has to have her jamie fight off the advances of others to win her. Doesn't ever girl want someone willing to fight for them?
Sheena and Jamie are thrown together by some extraordinary circumstances and Jamie sets out to win Sheena though many others are viaing for her, even his own brother and a third party who is attempting to keep their two clans at war despite everyone's best effort to end it. everyone will love niall, sheena's little brother, because he'll remind you of your own brother at that age and you can't help but smile at his antics.
Another nice aspect to this work was the fact that jamie was actually near Sheena's age. Though sheena is still young by our standards today, 19, jamie is only 25 instead of say in his mid-thirties like most other novels.

After two years of peace, the McKinnons and the Fergussons are feuding again. Sheena Fergusson and Jamie McKinnon are destined to come together in marriage to bring an end to the feud. But there is a third party out there who is determined to keep the feud going and bring up old wounds and hurt. This story is one of my favorites by Lindsey. Sheena and Jamie are both very likable characters and the chemistry between them is great! The love scenes are steamy and exciting and the plot is very interesting. A great book by a great author!

Having enjoyed nearly all of Ms. Lindsey's work, I was vastly disappointed with _A Gentle Feuding_. It seemed to be missing a bit of the polish I usually associate with Johanna Lindsey's books. It was not as descriptive as I would have liked. I much prefer being transported to new and wonderful places through the words of an author. Lindsey usually accomplishes this commendably but her talent for the descriptive was missing in this book. Also, the characters were shallow, not well developed and came off flat. Sheena seemed preoccupied with her looks, almost to the point of being narcissistic. I didn't like her attitude toward her sisters at all. She repeatedly stated that they are plain and that she is everyone's favorite, trying unsuccessfully to cover up her superficiality by bemoaning how her looks are such a burden. It just gave me the impression of someone who was entirely too full of herself. Granted, the sisters are not all that pleasant, but one has to wonder if this doesn't stem from the fact that Sheena boasts of her better looks and that she is quite certain she is the favorite of everyone she meets. I would rather a beautiful heroine not be aware of her beauty. Jamie, I'm sad to say, is not much better. He's also full of himself and even seems to have an underlying cruelty. He comes across as hard, unyielding and arrogant. By the end of the book I didn't really care what happened to either of them but I did feel that they deserved each other. If you're looking to find Lindsey at her best, try the Viking trilogy, the Malory saga, or the Ly-San-Ter series. This receives three stars only because it is Lindsey and the fact that everyone is entitled to an off day.
