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....

it's a book i could read or listen to many times it makes me laugh cry from 1st to end
it takes u away, makes things lighter, even my husband enjoy it on the long trip
Brennan & Connor would love to hear more about then.
yes, she helps to bring it to life
I have read & reread both at least a hundred times & now my eyesight makes this hard. Audio books are a life saver.
Humor, suspense, & drama all in these stories.
Love all her historical romance wish she would write about Faith and her story but the most memorable for me was when she kissed his scars on his hands and told him him that those where his past and and he was honorable , and the narrator was wonderful she nailed it, hope she writes another historical soon but looking forward to the new novel coming up in August.
The only type of person that would like this book is someone that thinks very little of women
No, I don't like the portrayal of women
She did the best with what she had to work with
I was all of the above, angry, sad and disappointed, especially at the high 4.40 rating for this book
I was very upset at a female author that writes a character that in the beginning of the book is willing to walk to her possible death, but later in the book when she experiences sexual harrassment , , she is too afraid to speak to anyone abou t it and keeps it quiet. If This heroine is described as being brave and intelligent, then I must be missingsomething! I found her befuddled, confused and overbearing.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I have always enjoyed Julie Garwood's Highlander books. I read them as a teenager and was in love with them. When this one went on sale I picked it up and reread it. I enjoyed the story again and it brought back memories when I read it the first time. My favorite will always be The Bride with Alex and Jamie. I like how in each book the heroines always have some quirky characteristic that left the hero shaking his head with disbelief. Overall a fun highland romance. Narrator does a good job.
Retired. My hobbies are knitting, sewing and sports. To busy doing hobbies to be able to read so audible books are great for me. Also enjoy listening when driving on a long road trip.
A story of two people growing to realize the love they have for each other.
I would have liked to, but too long. I found I was staying up much later than I should be as I had to get up the next morning because I didn't want to stop listening. Then again I didn't want to listen so long as I knew that would make me come to the end of the book and I wanted it to keep going.
A book you don't want to ever end.
Absolutely. Will listen to the whole series in order in about six months or a year. This is fun read.
Yes!! I was up WAY too late because I couldn't put the book down.
This is one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. The dialogue is great as are the characters. I always appreciate the strong women and loyal, rugged men!!! I think I have an addiction to her Highlander books. Really glad I found this series and strongly recommend. You can get a book list on her website to see the order to the books are written in. All are good individually, but they are even more fun in order.
Years ago, The Wedding was the second historical romance novel I had ever read, coming right on the heels of The Bride. I adore both stories and when I needed a guaranteed awesome escapism book, decided to listen to them on audio.
The Bride, narrated by Rosalyn Landor, was brilliantly done. Maybe because I had such high expectations for The Wedding, Heather Wilds, who has a lovely, comfortable voice to listen to, really disappointed me. The warriors often sounded like pre-pubescent boys or teens and so I had a tough time imagining them as manly Highland warriors. Also, even though the words themselves were the right ones for the times, the heroine sounded like she had walked straight off the pages of a contemporary romance novel.
As I said, Ms. Wilds has a lovely voice, but I wasn't able to stay immersed in the story due to the way she portrayed the characters.
All that said, I truly did enjoy the story.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, very entertaining!!
Brenna, her stubborniness drove Connor crazy!!
Heather did an amazing job on ALL characters!! Very passionate narrator.
I always laugh in Julie's stories.
