The second book of four, this historical romance sees Montgomery brother Stephen forced to marry a Scottish clan chief, the beautiful Bronwyn MacCarran. Both are strong-willed and independent and they make a remarkable couple through many conflicts including nations, clans, families and each other!
This book had everything you need to create a good romance: a dashing hero, a beautiful heroine, a person who always seems to interfere with the hero and heroine, and, most of all...PASSION! The relationship between the leads is endearing. The secondary characters are enjoyable as well. The interaction between the leads was great. They really enjoyed smarting off to each other because they did not like a lot about each other in the beginning. But their disagreements were often very funny. This was a very entertaining book. This book was a pleasure to read and I couldn't put it down until it was finished. I loved watching Steven and Bronwyn grow as people. And where able to see that there is good and bad in all kinds of people. You can't judge someone for their race but who that are as a person. I know there are a lot of people who didn't like Bronwyn. I really don't understand why. Steven screwed up big time in the beginning coming 3 days late for the wedding. He had not even come to see her before that. Steven was arrogant and disrespectful. Steven changes as he sees Bronwyn as a true and great leader. It took Bronwyn awhile to forgive and trust Steven. Plus Bronwyn was forced to marry Steven after father and three men she was choose from to be her husband. Bronwyn had a lot to get over before she could fall head over heels in love with Steven.
