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....

    "A Wonderful romance!"

    How can you not love a big, strong, handsome and challenging laird? Love those Highlanders. This love story was definitely worth the time and credit spent. I recommend it to those interested in passion, love and action, though not much.

    Story
    "WHEN YOU'RE STUCK WITH A CHAUVINIST"

    I typically adore Julie Garwood's highland warrior novels, The Bride, being one of them, but something went terribly wrong with this one. I mean, was this book even written by J.G.? It had some of the qualities, but definitely fell short of a fabulous highland novel penned with her magic touch.

    The problem is with Connor MacAlister, the protagonist. The problem is that he had the personality, understanding of women, and sensibilities of a rock. His flat, harsh personality made the dialogue portions between him and Lady Brenna dull and boring, because he's pretty much hollow.

    I was surprised that characters from the previous book, The Bride--- Laird Alec Kincaid and Jamie's relationship didn't have that much of a strong impact on him---well, if it did, that influence didn't come out till the very end of the book...which made it too long for me.

    In the previous book, when Alex Kincaid would say things to Jamie, such as, "you have value, but 2nd place to my horse," well the man was just kidding and pressing Jamie's buttons. Yet, with Connor, when he conveyed where Brenna ranked on his list of priorities and things he considered valuable, well he pretty much meant it when he named his horse as first priority. There was also distasteful violence against a horse in this book and soldiers. I thought that was too much, as well.

    Regarding the heroine, Brenna was flighty, but very sweet and incessantly patient with the bad luck she had in marrying Connor. She loved him even though he said harsh things to her, and didn't really treat her well. He was also dismissive and did not inspire trustworthiness, and this left Brenna vulnerable to his enemies.

    The change of heart and character came about way too late for me in the book. When the change of heart and promise of true love comes about in the last scene in the book, um....nope not good enough to be considered a good read/listen.

    Regarding the narrator, Heather Wilds was really good. I enjoyed her performance.

    Story
    "Funny, mystery, romance, not best narrator. "

    Brenna is on her way to an arranged wedding when she is intercepted by a group of huge highlanders. Coerced into marrying their Laird, Brenna finds herself in the middle of a feud and married to a man that she cant help but fall in love with. Now, if she can only get him to care for her....

    Connor is feuding with a man he believes to be responsible for his fathers death. Ordered to leave McNair alone unless he can find proof, Connor captures McNairs bride-to-be as a last insult. But Brenna turns out to be an anomaly that threatens both his peace of mind and his heart.

    This is one of those stories that you keep coming back to. The beginning is filled with misunderstandings that will make you laugh out loud. There are a few moderate sex scenes but not too many. There are characters you will love and those you will hate. The mystery slowly reveals itself. My only complaint about the story is that the ending seems rather rushed.

    This narrator did a fair job with this book. The book is written in such a way that it switches between the two main characters. the narrator didnt leave enough of a pause or inflection to indicate when she changed characters which caused some confusion.

    the original narrator for this book is Steven Crossley. He did a far supperior job with this book. i am disappointed that Audible doesnt offer that version. But even if you cant get hold of the original, its still worth listening to.

    "Another great Julie Garwood audio"

    The narrator does a great job and I had no problems telling when the characters changed. I loved The Wedding and I plan to listen to more Julie Garwood audios soon.

    "Good Book Bad Reader"

    The story is great but the reader is horrendous. The warriors sounded like little girls. At times you can't tell which character is speaking. The original reader was a man. The remake should have e been a man as well.
