Book Review: The Wedding by Julie Garwood

Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, Lady Brenna 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...
I have to say that I love reading Julie Garwood. I've been rereading her stories, and they just make me happy. I love her characters! She writes characters that are flawed but you still like them. All of which I love. The stories have good humor to them and make you want to read them again. 

I loved Brenna. She met Connor when she was very young, and their meeting was so cute. Who else would recuse her when she needed it but Connor since he did it once before. You'll love how sneaky Connor is by using her own words against her. Of course, she was only a child when she said them but that didn't really come out. She was too confused with the wedding itself.  

There is a bunch of action within the story, and you go on a wild ride with these two. I love how they each realize they love the other and come to admit it to themselves. It wasn't easy for Brenna to love Connor what with her being mad at him so much. Not that she could stay angry even when she tried. 

Connor might have married Brenna for his own reason, but he came to cherish Brenna and realized just how lucky he was. My only issue with the story is I wish we got Connor's friends stories. I would have loved to read those.
