This is sort of the "prequel" to The Wedding. Its the story of Alec and Jamie. Not as good as the Wedding in my opinion (which is one of my favorites), but charming nonetheless.

This is Garwood's best book in my opinion. Alec is a callous and hard Scotsman who has to learn how to love and cherish the fiesty and ever-surprising Jamie. Jamie is funny, tender, sensitive and she always manages to surprise you and Alec. She has to overcome her new clanspeople hostility towards their new English Mistress. She has to deal with a secret enemy who wishes to kill her. She has to deal with a man who was rumored to have killed his wife and she has to deal with her grwoing love for this man.
The book will see you laughing out loud through many pages. The characters are so well-written, that you seem to know them for real by the end.

Scottish Laird Alec Kincaid travels to England to find a bride as per his King's wish. He chose Jamie, a feisty young woman who isn't afraid of him, even though she has heard the stories claiming Alec killed his first wife. When Alec takes Jamie back to Scotland, his clan is wary of her. But after saving the life of one of the clan members, the Kincaids quickly come to love Jamie...even though she's English. But when someone attempts to take Jamie's life, Alec and his men must make sure she doesn't end up like his first wife.

I love Julie Garwood's historical romances. They are fast-paced, funny, and so hard to put down. Her characters are great from her quirky heroines to her handsome gentle heroes. I read this book years ago and this time listened to the audiobook. The narrator, Rosalyn Landor, does a fantastic job with this story. My rating: 5 Stars.

I'm new to Garwood and I'm quite impressed. It was fun and had a few laugh-out-loud moments. The characters were extremely engaging. Great read. Will look for more by her.
