From "New York Times" bestselling author Julie Garwood, whose novels have enchanted millions of readers worldwide, comes a breathtakingly romantic novel about a mismatched young wife and husband who, despite their differences in background and temperament, fall inexorably in love. Available in hardcover for the first time, with a new introduction from Julie Garwood that explains her inspiration for this timeless love story, "The Bride" sweeps readers back to the savage beauty of medieval Scotland.... By the king's edict, Alec Kincaid, mightiest of the Scottish lairds, must take an English bride. And Jaime the youngest daughter of Baron Jamison, is his choice. From his first glimpse of the proud and beautiful English lady, Alec felt a burning hunger stir within him. This was a woman worthy of his fearless warrior's spirit. And he aches to touch her, tameher, possess her...forever. But with the wedding vows, Jamie pledges her own secret oath: She will never surrender her love to this Highland barbarian. He was everything her heart warned her against -- an arrogant, brooding scoundrel whose rough good looks and seductive embrace fire her blood. But when strange accidents begin to threaten Jamie's life and an old rumor that Alec killed his first wife spreads anew, something far more dangerous than desire threatens to conquer he senses. With all the storytelling power and insight into the human heart that have made her one of the bestselling authors of our time, Julie Garwood takes readers on an unforgettable romantic journey rich in humor, suspense, and historical detail.

Like a lot of romance readers, I started the journey with Julie Garwood's early highland romances in my youth. And like most romance readers, I loved her and I still do. I have not, however, re-read any of my old-time favorites from her in a long time. Kindle helped me "rekindle" (no pun intended) m...

3.5 Dave Barry, is that you?
I just gorged on Julie Garwood. Sometimes a girl just has weak moments (or weeks, don't judge). I went to bed early last night in a pot-roast induced coma, dreaming of all the brawny, emotionally-stinted, sword wielding highlanders in Garwood’s books. Some are uncommonly handsome, some are big ...

5.0 The Bride (Lairds' Fiancées, #1)
This book was my introduction to Garwood historicals. When my mother gave me her copy, she said it was the funniest thing she had read in a long time. She was right. Jamie's adventures in Scotland were amusing and entertaining, and the final scene in the book is one that lingers in the mind even ...
