Description

By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie the feisty youngest daughter of Baron Jamison. 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.…

    Omg...read it twice . . . back to back. The funny, frustrating, and biting back and forth between Alec and Jaimie is a little close to home, but so much more romantic.

    I gave The Bride three stars because the story is entertaining and funny. For Julie Garwood fans who love her work, you will like this one.

    I've read and re-read "The Bride" over a dozen times since I was first introduced to Scottish laird Alec Kincaid and feisty English beauty Jamie in high school. And I enjoyed following their story each time.After a few years away from this book, I picked it up again. My, how times have changed - I couldn't even make it halfway without wanting to tear my hair out. Jamie and Alec are just TSTL. Yes, I said it. Their interaction consists of pointless misunderstandings and talking circles around each other. Alec is a dim-witted barbarian, and Jamie...well, it's like she has amnesia and forgets what she does or say. Maybe it's ADHD. Whatever it is, it drove me nuts.This is one of Garwood's earlier works, and you can tell by its lack of sophistication. My absolute favorite from her is still "Ransom". I'm very partial to the Medieval Highlands genre - that's the only reason this received a higher rating than it deserves. Well, that and nostalgia.

    14 Sep 2013: This book is the audible.com daily deal today; just $4.95. At that price, I think I'll give it another try. Also, the incomparable Rosalyn Landor narrates.

    2 March 2012: I'm surprised to find that I'm rather "meh" about this book. From reading all of the reviews on GR and elsewhere, I expected more. It's a sweet story with amusing banter between Jamie and Alec, but there's really no drama. The whole murder plot is very underplayed and neatly resolved. I suppose I've come to expect something a little darker when reading about Highland Lairds.

    Scotish Lord Alex kincaid is told by his King that he must take an English bride. He choses Jamie, the youngest daughter of an English Barion. Jamie was also told by her King that she must marry. Jamie must adjust to the more rugges lifestyle in Scotland and not loose her identy in the process.

    Who is the best and most versatile writer? Julie Garwood! I read fast track the other day and it was fantastic. This brought tears to my eyes. I actually read this book ‘the bride’ years ago and once I started it again, I remembered the story. Yes, her stories are unforgettable. And the book still had a huge impact on me. I bow to Julie’s great talent. Lovely lovely story! Loved it
