Book Club Thursday: Wedding Theme
This week we are talking Weddings, what with Valentine's Day right around the corner.
When I think of wedding themed books I go to one that gave me so much pleasure while reading it. That would be The Wedding by Julie Garwood, which is part of the Lairds Fiancees Series. I really loved this book. In fact, there isn't many books of Garwood's that I don't love. She always has a ton of humor in her books and this one is no different. If you haven't read a Gawood and like historical you don't know what your missing. Just the scene with pig is enough to draw you in. This is a oldie, it was out in 1996. Garwood is one of those authors that I like to read over and over. They are feel good books.
1119 AD. Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, LadyBrenna had resigned herself to the arranged match. But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captured her en route, she fearlessly met their demand to marry their leader -- the quick-tempered laird Connor MacAlister. She couldn't know that her capture was merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor's sworn enemy. Brenna harbored no illusions that her husband was in love with her; after a hasty forest wedding,MacAlister assured her she could return home once she had borne him a son.But she could not deny that she had once proposed to MacAlister -- ten years ago, when she was just a child, and the visitor to her father's castle charmed her with his dazzling, unexpected smile. Now, as she sets out to win the brave chieftain whom she has come to adore, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war -- and only her faith in her gallant hero can save her....
