The Wedding

by Julie Garwood

Pocket Star | April 1, 1997 | Mass Market Paperbound

The Wedding is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 8.
Only a master could top the stunning success of For the Roses, and Julie Garwood has proven once again why she "attracts readers like beautiful heroines attract dashing heroes" (USA Today) with this joyous New York Times bestseller. Returning to the enchanting world of her classic The Bride, she brings the soaring adventure, love and rivalry of medieval Scotland to glorious life in a delightful tale her fans will adore.
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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Romance I loved this book the first time I read it and the 40th time It's one of the best books ever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disappointed Wow. I dont know what Garwood was thinking with this one. First of all, it was almost identical to The Bride, making the story predictable. The only big difference with this one is that I can not stand the main character. Connor is and assshole. Plain and simple. He had some good moments but his great negatives out weighed is few positives. Brenna came off as a whiny doormat. She seemed very young and immature. The only reason i was able to finish this was because, despite everything, Garwood's still a good writer. Of coarse, over time Connor got better, but not enough to make up for the 200 and some odd pages i had to put up with his bull. Anyways, I dont know if ive ever been as dissapointed with an author as i am now. Get The Bride instead, Jamie and Alec are a great couple and they wont drive you mad!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charming This novel is utterly charming. I had just re-read the story and although I did not feel the great romance and chemistry throughout the book, it then became apparent in the end. What kept me from continuing to read the novel was the dialogue between the characters and the humor behind it all. Although I must say that my favourite scene did not involve the two main characters at all, but the scene between Brenna's sister and Quinlan. It was so descriptive, and I found myself anticipating for more between these two characters. I certainly hope that Julie Garwood would come back and write a historical novel between these two sub-characters. All in all it is a good read and in the end you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Julie garwood is amazing This is the sequel to "The Bride". Julie Garwood writes historic romances that are truly amazing. They do not compare to other romantic history titles on the market. You get into the minds of the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan to romantic history novels! You will read and reread it again and again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wedding I loved the fact that the Scottish Highlanders can take any bride that they wish. Breanna was determined to do what she wanted and proved to very brave.

Read from the Book

Chapter One ENGLAND, 1108 It wasn''t love at first sight. Lady Brenna didn''t want to be presented to company. She had far more important things to do with her day. Her nursemaid, a dour-faced woman with God-fearing ways and clumped-together, protruding front teeth, wouldn''t listen to her arguments, however. With the determination of a hedgehog, she cornered Brenna in the back of the stables and then lunged forward. Never one to let an opportunity or a little girl slip past her, the nursemaid lectured her charge all the way up the hill and across the muddy courtyard. "Quit your squirming, Brenna. I''m stronger than you are, and I''m not about to let go. You''ve lost your shoes again, haven''t you? And don''t dare lie to me. I can see your stockings peeking out. Why are you dragging that bridle behind you?" Brenna lifted her shoulders in a shrug. "I forgot to put it back." "Drop it this minute. You''re always forgetting, and do you know why?" "I don''t pay attention to what I''m doing, like you tell me to, Elspeth." "You don''t pay attention to anything I tell you, and that''s a fact. You''re more trouble than all the others put together. Your older brothers and sisters have never given me a moment''s worry. Even your baby sister knows how to behave herself, and she''s still sucking on her fingers and wetting herself. I''m warning you, Brenna, if you don''t change your ways and give your parents a little peace, God himself will have to stop his important work and come down he
