Book Description

April 1 1997
Only a master could top the stunning success of For the Roses, and Julie Garwood has proven once again why she "attracts readers like beautiful heroines attract dashing heroes" (USA Today) with this joyous New York Times bestseller. Returning to the enchanting world of her classic The Bride, she brings the soaring adventure, love and rivalry of medieval Scotland to glorious life in a delightful tale her fans will adore.
Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, Lady Brenna had resigned herself to the arranged match. But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captured her en route, she fearlessly met their demand to marry their leader -- the quick-tempered laird Connor MacAlister. She couldn't know that her capture was merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor's sworn enemy. Brenna harbored no illusions that her husband was in love with her; after a hasty forest wedding, MacAlister assured her she could return home once she had borne him a son. But she could not deny that she had once proposed to MacAlister -- ten years ago, when she was just a child, and the visitor to her father's castle charmed her with his dazzling, unexpected smile. Now, as she sets out to win the brave chieftain whom she has come to adore, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war -- and only her faith in her gallant hero can save her...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story. June 1 2004
By Megan
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I accidentally read this one first, not knowing that Garwood's "The Bride" was actually written first and features two of the secondaries from this cast. Anyway, I fell in love with this book.
The heroine, Brenna, is adorable. I laughed out loud at her many times. She is charming and doesn't grate my nerves with an overabundance to prove herself independent. I really did like her more than any heroines that I've read lately.
Connor, what can I say? He was dark, distant, and charmed with Brenna for most of the book. I was impressed by Garwood's creation of him. Put the two together and there's a fantastic story.
The plot isn't too complicated. It isn't overly political, and the storyline is mainly about her characters, which is the reason I read so much in this genre.
I find the dialogue isn't overly forced which is, absolutely, a dealbreaker for me in romance novels...I can't finish a book if their dialogue bores me.
By far, this is probably my favorite romance novel that I can remember. One of the few that I won't pass along to friends for fear I won't have it returned.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea ! Dec 12 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Yuks. I tried to force myself to skim through it (lucky thing I borrowed this from the library otherwise I will be criticising 'louder') I don't like her too cutesy/dumb heroine..really get on my nerve. I find that her style is not my cup of tea. I tried another book of hers too (want to give her another chance in case she wrote that particular book on her off days) but the outcome is still the same - I hate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story!! June 21 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of the reviews on this story and have noticed that some were not happy with this book, saying that it was to similar to 'the Bride" I myself have not read the bride, not yet. I loved yet again another wonderful story by ms garwood,
I believe that some have forgotten the time that this book was written and upbringing that the main character was raised in. Lady Brenna is fron england and raised in a manner that looks down on lady 'putting there foot down' Lady Brenna comes to her husbands home with her mother in law already staying there. even tho she had been away for many years. Lady brenna does not know her place in the house hold, yes she is married to the laird of the castle but does not know if it her place to tell her mother in law to leave or what every she would like to. She wanted this woman to like her and yelling at her would have made her not like her. I beleve that when her mother in law told her she should let he son have his way with her I think she was so shocked and scared to run screaming to tell her husband. she did not want to embarress him by telling someone else before she spoke to him .
and as for lady brenna's father marring her off to someone she did not know, it was what was done in that time, marriages were done for land and to make peace and to make clans bigger.
I loved all of this book. It kept me up all night reading it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh. Not good, not great, not horrible, either. May 29 2004
By Hillary
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Garwood is one of my favorite romance authors. I'm absolutely devastated that she wandered from the path of historical romance. (Killjoy and the rest are still great, but every once in a while, would it kill ya to return to the past, Julie? Puh-Leaze?)
Anyway, The Wedding is, in my opinion, the weakest of her historical triumphs. I figured this out upon a second read. Why do I dislike it? Connor - the hero - is a jerk. Plain and simple. Normally I can deal with the dark brooding male . . . by the end of the book, he becomes attached to the heroine and the ice melts, forcing us (as readers) to fall in love with him as he realizes the extent of his feelings for his wife/lover/mistress.
Never happened with this one . . . at least for me. I thought Connor treated Brenna like a piece of luggage. I was actually furious with the character on occasion, and that's not good. I don't read romance to get angry. I read it for a nice vacation from my brain.
Garwood's romances have always followed a formula: she creates a heroine who is strong but flawed. The Wedding is no different. There is humor and a sense of sweetness to the English Lady Brenna. She finds herself saddled with a brute of a husband (a 'barbarian' Highlander)and mystically melts in his arms. I just can't figure out why. Connor's self absorbed, obsessed with revenge, and an all around miserable man. Course, by the end of the book he's as soft as milktoast for his wife, but I just didn't feel that he deserved her - even though he realizes the prize he has in his wife.
For great Garwood, there are other places to turn. If you want romance set in the Highlands, look at The Secret or Ransom. I also really liked The Bride. If you're looking for London victorian style stuff, Guardian Angel, Castles, and Lion's Lady are excellent.
Happy Reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great light fair... May 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading this book and I have to say I liked it a lot. Garwood is not currently one of my favorite authors, but I always like her books when I come across them. This one was very funny and very cute. If you are looking for a serious book, this is not the one for you. This is an entertaining, humorous, quick read. I laughted out loud a lot with this book and the love story was sweet if simple, but it was very well written, the dialouge was great, the wording very well done. It sets you up in the Prolouge to be serious but once you read the first chapter you know it's never going to be serious again. It's just not a deep book it's a Romantic comedy not a drama, so don't expect anything deep from it.
The one disapointment I had with the book was her reaction to her stepmother. What a b***h! She really should have stood up more to her, or perhaps simply been more cool and reserved toward her which would not have changed the plot any. Still it's a minor foible in an otherwise very entertaining book.
