A Gentle Feuding" is an outstanding story! In the Highlands of Scotland, beautiful Lowlander Sheena is taken against her will to Castle Kinnion and gains the interest of the Laird -- her clan's mortal enemy -- and his brother.
Jamie is a hero's hero; strong, compassionate, gentle even. Sheena is simply gorgeous, a spirited heroine whose love for her brother Niall leads her into a lot of trouble -- and right into Jamie's arms.
It's fun to see Jamie compete with his brother Colen for Sheena's love, and even more fun to see how Sheena tries to resist them both. There are many memorable scenes in "Gentle Feuding," including the scene where Sheena is trapped in a burning hut after a clan raid. How Jamie reacts is unforgettable.
I can't complain at all about a single thing in this book, it was that good and satisfying. I'm amazed that there are reviewers who disliked Sheena because of her estranged relationship with her sisters or because of her so-called vanity. I personally believe the relationship with the sisters was realistic, and there was not a single vain bone in Sheena's body.
Read "A Gentle Feuding." It's one of Johanna Lindsey's best works.
Duty demans that sheena, the beautiful jewel of the Fergusson clan, wed to end the violent fued that has devasted her family. But she could never give herself completely to the handsome and dangerous laird Jamie MacKinnion - the most feared man in the Scottish highlands.
The captive prize of Jamie's sword, Sheena struggles in vain to escape the desire awakened by his touch. And though pride insists she hate her dashing enemy, Sheena's heart begs her to yeild . . . and to surrender to Jamie's passionate love.
What can I say, it's classic Johanna Lindsey, which means it's great, living up to her reputation. The name Sheena seems a bit out of place, but that's just my opinion, other than that it was wonderful.
Proud and fiercely independent, Sheena knows what her duty is as jewel of the Fergusson clan: She must wed to put an end to the feud that has devastated her family. But though she agrees to marry Jamie MacKinnion, she will never give herself completely to the dark and dangerous laird. Pride insists that she hate her husband-to-be, the most feared man in the Scottish Highlands. Why then can't she deny the desire awakened by Jamie's surprisingly gentle touch? He is her captor and her enemy -- yet Sheena's heart is the real traitor, for it begs her to surrender freely to a passion beyond bounds...and to a man she dare not love.
