I usually like Jude Deveraux, but I absolutely hate this one. Why must the "hero" always belittle and mock the heroine's abilities to lead or think because she has a uterus? Arrogant, ignorant, high-handed, mocking - is this what romance writers think that women want? Why? I'll never understand it. A "change of heart" story where a boorish moron grabs at a woman and enjoys lording his power over her - but she's just so dang special he can finally see his error...she's just so much more swell and nifty than other women! What a load of CRAP!

The Heiress, also by Deveraux, has a much stronger heroine, Axia Maidenhall. Try that one. This one made me heartily sick in the first chapter.

This is one of Deveraux's best. Bronwyn MacArran was a proud Scot. Stephen Montgomery was on of the hated English. He came to Scotland as a conqueror, saw her beauty and was vanquished. But still she would abhor him. She owned a temper hot enough to forge the armors of battle or inflame a valiant soldier's passion. Yet still she would resist him. She became his reason to live, his reason to love. And still she would deny him. But while clan fought clan, while brother took up sword against brother, and the highlands ran with blood--their destiny was made...and this mighty warrior pledged himself to his woman's pride, her honor and her name--and made of their love a torch to burn through the ages.

As a rule, I can't resist a Happily Ever After, and for the ending I will give this book an okay. But as for the content up to that point - not my favorite.

The beginning of the story had a "Gone with the Wind" feel to me. The hero tried so hard and while the reader knew they would eventually get together, I felt as if I wanted to shake the heroine a bit. (obviously the ending was better than GWTW)

I haven't read any of the others in the series, (this is number 2 I think) but I may give it another try. you never know
