The Wedding by Julie Garwood



The Wedding is quite possibly my all time favorite historical romance novel. It's witty, sweet, touching and very well written.


Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a higlander, Lady Brenna was resigned 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....Nor could she deny that she had once proposed to MacAlister, as a child charmed by his dazzling, unexpected smile. Now, chosen to bear the laird a son, Brenna is caught in the crossfire of a furious clan war - with the gallant hero she has come to love at its firey center.

Connor is one of my top 3 all time favorite heroes. He's just perfect. And I think Brenna compliments him very well.

An absolute must read!

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Oh, God."
"Nay, lass. Connor."
She grabbed hold of Rachel's hand and started tugging. Her sister took a long time to look down.
"What is it?" she whipsered.
"He isn't God, is he?" she asked, pointing to the dark-haired guest.
Rachel rolled her eyes heavenward. "No, he most certainly isn't God."
"Did Papa lie to me? he told me only God is bigger than he is, Rachel."
"No, Papa didn't lie. He was just teasing you. That's all. You don't need to be afraid."
Didn't he understand she needed praise and comfort to give her the reassurance she ached for?
No of course he didn't know. The insensitive bear didn't even know what comfort was.
She stopped protesting as soon as he bagan reciting, flinched when he repeated certain words, such as "pig" and "goat" and "Horse's backside," and by the time he finsihed, she'd lowered her head in shame and embarrassment.
And then he pulled her up against him, tilted her head back, and kissed her long and hard and thoroughly. It was a kiss he wanted her to remember, and one he nwould never forget. he made love to her with his mouth, telling her with his passion that he had forgive her, and letting her know with ihs gentle touch that he meant to have her forgivness as well.
I could go on and on, but I'll let you read it for yourself and see how good it is.
