"Lady Brenna MacAlister harbored no illusions that her husband, a quick-tempered highland laird, was in love with her. How could he be enamored of his bride when, on their wedding day, he had assured her that she could return to her home in England as soon as she had given him a son?" "Marrying Connor MacAlister had been an impulsive act for Brenna. But MacAlister and his warriors, a savage-looking band who had captured her and her party en route to her arranged marriage to another, offered precious few alternatives. Nor could Brenna deny that in fact she had proposed to MacAlister even if that had been ten long years ago, when she was just a child, and Connor a visitor to her father's castle. Actually, Brenna scarcely remembered the secret missives she'd sent to MacAlister, abetted by her mischievous older sister...yet she had never forgotten the tall visitor's dazzling, unexpected smile." "Now, after a hasty forest wedding, they were man and wife. Determined to be happy, Brenna soon endeared herself to most of the clan, despite or perhaps because of - her uncanny knack for getting into trouble. And although she grew to adore her brave, superstitious, gentle husband, she had no clue that Connor lived for the moments she whispered "I love you"...words she never meant him to hear. But when a rival laird struck out at the MacAlisters, trapping Brenna in a web of dangerous intrigue, she knew that only her faith in her gallant mate could save her...."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

I actually laughed out loud in several places. Wonderful characters and leaves you feeling sad to leave them.

I liked this book as much as I did the first in the series - "The Bride". You have to be a fan of this genre, and Garwood in particular, to enjoy this book. People who do not enjoy this type of book should check the genre before reading. Garwood writes regency romance as well as myster and her readers do not seem to like both.

Don't think I've read such a poorly written book before this. Repetitious to an extreme.

Most historical romances are fun to read just once, but I loved this one so much that I went out and bought it. You'll soon fall in love with Brenna and want to shake you head at Connor's inability to understand the female mind.

1119. Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, Lady Brenna had resigned herself to the arranged match. But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captured her en route, she fearlessly met their demand to marry their leader -- the quick-tempered laird Connor MacAlister. She couldn't know that her capture was merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor's sworn enemy.

Brenna harbored no illusions that her husband was in love with her; after a hasty forest wedding, MacAlister assured her she could return home once she had borne him a son. But she could not deny that she had once proposed to MacAlister -- ten years ago, when she was just a child, and the visitor to her father's castle charmed her with his dazzling, unexpected smile. Now, as she sets out to win the brave chieftain whom she has come to adore, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war -- and only her faith in her gallant hero can save her....
