I picked up this book a dozen years ago and stil reread it every once in a while. I have 3 favorite things about this book and 1 dissapointment.

I LOVE that the heroine, Gabrielle, is physically flawed. She's curvacious, and -like most curvy women- resents it until she discovers that the man she loves finds it irresistable.

I LOVE that the dialogue is written with the brogue included. As I was only 14 and a terrible reader when I first read this, I had the devil's own time understanding it, but it made me read the story ever more carefully. And I fell in love with Gaelic culture because of this book!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Connor, the book's hero. If ever there is a drool-worthy fictional man, he epitomizes male perfection to me. If you fit his description-- FIND ME!!!

My only disappointment came when this story ended. I could read about Gabrielle and Connor forever. I enjoy every subtle nuance from social boundaries to gender roles this book brought to life.

Read it! But get your own copy, I won't share! =)

Great story! The heroine is considered plain and a bit chunky and doesn't see herself as wanted by anyone. Yet when she is used to settle a clan feud by marrying the Laird Douglas, she ends up finding out that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Set against the pageantry and savage splendor of 16th century England and Scotland.
