New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood has captured the hearts of millions of listeners worldwide with timeless tales of love and soaring adventure. Now, returning to the enchanting world of her classic love story “The Bride,” she brings to glorious life the passion, intrigue, and rivalry of medieval Scotland....
Resigned to an arranged marriage to a highland laird she has never met, Lady Brenna journeys from England to Scotland certain she will suffer a loveless marriage. But en route to her betrothed, a rival band of Werce, painted warriors intercept her caravan and demand that she marry their leader -- the handsome, quick-tempered laird Connor MacAlister, the same man she'd repeatedly proposed to as a child while he'd been a visitor to her father's castle.
Though Brenna scarcely remembers the secret missives she'd sent to MacAlister declaring her love, she has never forgotten the tall visitor's dazzling, unexpected smile. Now older and wiser, Brenna harbors no illusions that Connor is in love with her -- indeed, after a hasty forest wedding, Connor assures her she can return home once she has borne him a son. Lady Brenna has no idea that her capture is merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor's sworn enemy.
Determined to be happy, Brenna soon endears herself to most of the MacAlister clan, despite -- or perhaps because of -- her uncanny knack for getting into trouble. And although she comes to adore her brave, superstitious, gentle husband, she has no clue that Connor lives for the moments she whispers "I love you"...words she never meant him to hear. But, as she sets out to win the heart of the brave chieftain, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war -- and only her faith in her gallant husband can save her....

I love this book!! It has the right amount of romance and drama in it. I love the way the characters all interact with each other. I wish Julie Garwood would write more Historical fiction again.
I've listened to this book several times and I can honestly say it still holds my attention. If I could give it a score of a perfect 10 I would.
If you liked the first installment ( The Bride ) than you will this one too!
NARRATOR: Excellent, yet not my favorite.
Heat Factor: Ouch!
I love books! Hardback, paperback, audiobooks - books in any format! My favorite genre is romance, because I also love a happy ending.
I loved this book, which I own and have read... A lot. Hearing it was awesome though, and I thought the narration was superb. A good narrator really brings the story to life.
predictable, but cute!
Meeting of the two main characters in the woods
Entertaining; will buy the sequel.
A very delightful, entertaining, and different book. And I was impressed with the author who has enough of a vocabulary that she does not have to use foul language and explicit language to tell the story. There were times when I was laughing out loud.
I loved The Bride and couldn't remember reading The Wedding now I remember why. Story line so horrible I forgot I read it. The heroine made stupid look smart and to add insult to injury, the narrator was awful. If you are looking for that feel good story you got with the Bride this is not it. I just kept thinking when is this going to be over.
Heather Wilds is a great performer! She made the story even more enjoyable. I will be looking for more books narrated by her. Julie Garwood is one of my absolute favorite authors I love all her books. She tells great stories that you easily get lost in and they are so hard to put down!
I listen to them on my phone I listen when I am driving.my grandmother first taught me how you can read and discover some history as well and then you go look up what they could find written down, not burned or lost...it made me want to write books like Miss Tisdale..lol just do not know how or where to stop!
thank you for creating the magic for those of us that sometimes want to escape from the real world for a while
thank you sincerely
I enjoyed this audiobook but I wouldn't but didn't find anything particularly special about it. The plot was predictable and the characters were easy to like but not too deep. The narrator was alright, some might even say good... But I found her Scottish accent severely lacking, sounding more Russian than anything else. Over all it satisfied my craving for a lighthearted romance but it didn't leave me wowed.
My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.
I loved this story so much. I've listened to it 4 times. It makes you laugh, and stirs your heart with sweet moments that only Julie Garwood can write.
Heather Wilds did an excellent job narrating and truly brought the characters to life. Loved it. A must read.
