Book Description

Oct. 30 2007
The vivid scar that spans Sir Iain MacLagan's cheek is a daily reminder of the wife he lost - and of the enemy that still stalks him. Commanded by Scotland's king to remarry in order to unite two powerful border clans, lain reluctantly weds Islaen MacRoth, a woman whose delicate appearance belies a playful, seductive nature that proves dangerously attractive to a man who has vowed never to jeopardize his heart, or his loved ones, again...Raised with eleven boisterous brothers, Islaen has little time for foolish romantic notions. Even so, she hoped for more than a forced marriage to a man who shares her bed, but not her life. Step by step, Islaen sets out to wear down Iain's defenses.

4.0 out of 5 stars buyer beware Dec 25 2007
By L. A. Eastwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a good book with a captivating storyline but then i would expect no less from Hannah Howell. The main characters are well rounded and realistic. They bring to life the story. Helping this is the fact that the minor characters are vivid as well.
However, just a word of caution for those of you who have read Hannah's previous books - THIS IS A REPRINT - it was previously entitled Promised Passion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best but not her worst. Nov. 29 2007
By M. Gaines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I own all of Hannah Howell's books and love most of them. This is not one I loved. It started out interesting as the two main characters end up getting married. The night before their wedding the heroine sneaks into the grooms room to tell him her terrible secret so that he can prevent the marriage if he wants to. Her secret is a Dolly Parton type chest that immediately inflames the hero and causes them to have their wedding night the night before the wedding.The scene where hero and heroine are caught in bed the next morning is very funny.

Unfortunately the plot is not strong enough to keep the book going strong and it lost my interest. I did finish it but it was definitely not her best work. I will still buy her books and I am looking forward to "Highland Wolf" her next book due out soon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't like a book if you can't stand the hero! Oct. 6 2010
By JLW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! I don't know if I have ever disliked a hero as much as Iain. His wife, who hated him, died in childbirth two years ago cursing him with her last breathe. Since then, he has not touched a woman. Scotland's King tells him to marry young Islaen, a petite young woman. He is mad and determined not to get her with child or to love her. This is not so new to romances, but what agrevated me was his lack of fedility. Mere weeks after marrying his wife, his old love comes back into his life and he makes it clear he is thinking of bedding her. He even knows his friend wants to bed his wife, but he isn't too concerned! He almost gives in but decides to be faithful at the last second after making out with her in her room! I do not like this type of hero. He goes two years without and then has a willing wife that he can't keep his hands off but it still is not enough! What the heck! If that is not enough, he stays gone and away almost the entire novel. Islaen lets him walk all over her. She doesn't yell at him or ask that he stay. There is nothing in this novel to make up for the terrible way the hero treats the heroine for all but the last twenty pages of this book, maybe less. He was weak, annoying, and completly undeserving of love. Save your money and go for a different highland themed book. This one is a dud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oldies not necessarily goodies Nov. 17 2007
By Emlyn54 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First let me say I love Hannah Howell; hers are among the books I reread regularly, just to visit with the wonderful characters she's created. I know the criticisms...much of her work is the same plot reworked again and again, but that's true of most romance authors with any longevity. The fact is, it's her people that make it work.

Unfortunately, it's her people that are lacking here. I understand this is a reworking of an earlier book, maybe that accounts for its lack of punch. I certainly liked the character of Ian McLagan in "His Bonnie Bride" (he was the brother of the hero). But in this, his own story, the spark is just missing. I enjoyed catching up with Tavis, Storm and the rest of their families, but this is a trend I've seen in too many recent books (Mine til Midnight comes immediately to mind), where the intrusion of much loved characters from earlier books seems to be intended to divert the reader from the lack of substance in the current book.

I know not every book can be a home run; still, even the weaker books from her earlier series (including surprisingly enough the wonderful character of Payton Murray, whom HH took great pains through several books to make a fascinating character, fell flat in his own book) were rewarding in their own ways.

This one isn't awful, it's just sort of there, like Everest. And for the first time, one of HH's books will go into the "don't read again" pile. I'm hoping that "Highland Wolf", James' story will make up for the lack here. Again, HH created a wonderfully realized, fully dimensional character in James, Gillyanne's adopted brother, who was such a presence in "Highland Bride", one of my favorites.

Truthfully, anyone but Hannah Howell would have gotten less than 3 stars for this one, I'm afraid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Scottish Romance! March 21 2008
By Raquel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you like Julie Garwood novels then you're going to like Hannah Howell's books very much! This particular story is about a young woman sent to court to find a husband and ends up finding one man in particular that strikes her interest but who isn't at all interested in her or marriage for that matter. Though child-like in appearance he does find her attractive and at the kings stern suggestion concedes to the marriage. Whilst living at court for a while together as man and wife they are subject to scandal, intrigue, and violence and eventually decide to go back to his home to stay until minor repairs can be made to their new home not far from his family home. The story continues in the country setting where more unpleasant incidents occur as well some very pleasant connections made between our heroine and hero. Needless to say our hero is a much tormented character in need of a devoted heroine whom posses a quiet patience in order to come through for him in the end. Due to his lack attention and some misbehavior on his part we learn just how understanding and enduring this woman is and how she loves her husband very much.
I definitely recommend this book, it's a real page-turner.
