Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Good story. Horrible narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Julie Garwood but this narrator is horrible! Her Scottish accent sounds like a Russian and her male lead sounds like a 12 yr-old boy. It ruined the story.

    Would not have purchased the book if I would have realized who the narrator was poor performance

    "badly narrated"
    What did you like best about The Wedding? What did you like least?

    It's an interesting if predicatable story.


    What didn’t you like about Heather Wilds’s performance?

    I give the performance a star for accents. It was flat, sometimes actually misread. Sometimes I felt like she was just reading words without knowing what they said.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    This romance could have been really good with a narrator who not only changed accents but gave some proper feeling to the words.

    Story
    "Slow Paced"


    I did not find "The Wedding" as entertaining as I did "The Bride" (the first book of the series) which I found humorous. I like a little humor in a story--intended, or not.

    "The Wedding" had an interesting beginning, but deteriorated as the story and characters developed. The story begins with 9 or 10-year-old Highlander Connor MacAlister promising his dying father to avenge his death--find out who betrayed him and kill them. His promise basically defines Connor's whole life and determines the course of his actions throughout the story.

    I cannot understand why any author would create a character as cold and stupid as Conner for the hero of her story. Conner's men are smarter than he is concerning women/wives. For me, the spirited Brenna is the star of the story.

    Heather Wilds gave a good performance, but like "The Bride", the dialogue of "The Wedding" was not suited to the medieval era.

    I liked the theme of the story, although I found it's development frustrating. Because of the slow pace of the book I nodded off a couple of times, but didn't miss anything. The first hour or so of the book was entertaining, as well as the last few hours, so I'm not totally disappointed.
