The Bride (Lairds' Fiancées #1) by Julie Garwood Review


When I think of this series I can hear Barbara Streisand gently singing "Memories...like the corners of my mind..." I love this book. As a matter of fact I love all of Garwood's historical romances. This one was published in 1989 and I read it shortly after reading some Kathleen Woodiwiss novels in the early 90's. Garwood and Woodiwiss were my introduction into the romance genre and I have a special place in my heart for their books. Garwood writes some of the best romances featuring highland warriors. What is it about a man in a kilt wielding a sword that speaks so loudly to we women? Women of all races will melt over a strong bodied man with an alpha attitude and wearing a kilt. I don't even try to understand it, I just happily float down that stream. If you want a romance that is more gentle in describing  passionate love scenes than some of the more modern erotic romances please try this book or any of Garwood's many books set in the highlands. They are worth every penny and you will find yourself rereading and enjoying them every time.

Happy Reading!

Description

By the king's edict, Alec Kincaid, mightiest of the Scottish lairds, must take an English bride. And Jamie the youngest daughter of Baron Jamison, is his choice. From his first glimpse of the proud and beautiful English lady, Alec felt a burning hunger stir within him. This was a woman worthy of his fearless warrior's spirit. And he aches to touch her, tame her, possess her...forever.

But with the wedding vows, Jamie pledges her own secret oath: She will never surrender her love to this Highland barbarian. He was everything her heart warned her against -- an arrogant, brooding scoundrel whose rough good looks and seductive embrace fire her blood. But when strange accidents begin to threaten Jamie's life and an old rumor that Alec killed his first wife spreads anew, something far more dangerous than desire threatens to conquer her senses.
