The Bride by Julie Garwood

The Bride
by Julie Garwood


1102. By edict of the King, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie, youngest daughter of Baron Jamison... a feisty, violet-eyed beauty. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her... forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this Highland barbarian.

He was everything her heart warned against--an arrogant scoundrel whose rough good looks spoke of savage pleasures. And though Kincaid's scorching kisses fired her blood, she brazenly resisted him... until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills, and something far more dangerous than desire threatened to conquer her senses...

Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian. Though his kisses fired her blood, shadowed secrets from Alec’s past threatened Jamie’s happiness. She brazenly resisted him — until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills, and something far more dangerous than desire promised to conquer her heart.

ME
I am torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one.  Its not that I didn't really like it, just struggled a bit with the circular issues.  Realized with the ending that it all comes full circle and all "issues" were necessary.  I am just one of those people that got frustrated with Lucy and Ethel and the Seinfeld crew... I am of the mind.. Just don't do stupid things.  

I am looking forward to the next book in this series... "The Wedding".  I do enjoy this author, her books are an easy and fast read (at least for me).  She fits into and fulfills my romantic, Scottish Highlander, happy place.
