THE BOLD, BREATHLESS TALE OF A REBELLIOUS WOMAN, A FIERCE CHIEFTAIN, AND THE SEARING LOVE THAT SEALED THEIR DESTINY!
An edict of the King could not be challenged. Alec Kincaid, mightiest of the Scottish lairds, must take an English bride. And Jamie, youngest daughter of Baron Jamison, was his choice. From his first glimpse of the feisty, violet-eyed beauty, Alec felt a burning hunger stir within him. This was a woman worthy of his fearless warrior’s spirit. And he ached to touch her, tame her, possess her…forever.
But with the wedding vows, Jamie pledged her own secret oath. She would never surrender her love to this Highland barbarian. He was everything her heart warned against–an arrogant, brooding scoundrel whose rough good looks spoke of savage pleasures. And though Kincaid’s scorching kisses fired her blood, though his seductive embrace roused her passion, she brazenly resisted him. Until one impetuous moment of rapture quelled their clash of wills, and something far more dangerous than desire threatened to conquer her senses…
By edict of the King Jamie, the step-daughter of Baron Jamison, must marry a Scotsman in order to promote harmony between England and Scotland. Fearing Scotland and Alec Kincaid, Laird of the Kincaid Clan and the man she is to marry, Jamie must learn to love her husband and make his house her home. I loved this one from start to finish, and had a difficult time putting it down.
Jamie is my kind of heroine. She’s smart, and capable, and has a unique, unassuming way of endearing those around her and winning their loyalty. She is an anchor in times of trouble. A result of being tasked with the emotional care of her sisters, even though she is the youngest.
Alec Kincaid is everything a Laird and man should be. Fierce and protective, he easily commands the respect and loyalty of his clan. Though Jamie tries his patience all the time he is unfailingly kind to her because although she’s skilled, she has a sensitive heart and manner.
It was such fun to watch these two fall in love. Alec thinks it weak to love his woman and tries to think of her only as property. But as she charms and delights her way into his clan’s hearts, Alec can’t help but be affected as well. There were many laugh out loud moments for me, and the love scenes were the sweetest of agonies. I was thoroughly entertained and completely enchanted by The Bride!
Julie Garwood has a special way with historical romances and The Bride was nothing short of BRILLIANT! If you’re a fan of historical romance, this is a MUST read!
