Raised by a tyrannical father, Marion de Lacy yearns for the comfort of belonging to a loving family. So when her father announces her betrothal to an evil knight in exchange for his help to overthrow the king, she concocts a desperate scheme to avoid the marriage: feigning her own death and then fleeing England. But when her plan goes terribly awry and she's captured by the knight, not even her careful preparations could ready her for the Scottish barbarian who rescues her and then informs her that he's to marry her by edict of her king. Certain her father will defy the king's orders and wed her to the knight if she refuses the Highlander's hand, Marion agrees to marry the strangely compelling but obstinate laird of the MacLeod clan.
After the death of his beloved wife, Iain MacLeod has no desire to marry ever again. Yet when he finds himself obliged to do so to secure the freedom of his childhood friend and king, he reluctantly travels across England to collect his unwanted bride, expecting to find a cold Englishwoman. Instead, he discovers a fiery, bold beauty who is fiercely loyal, protective of those she loves, and defies him at every turn, challenging his certainty that his heart is dead.
Following a hasty marriage and perilous journey to Scotland, Marion harbors no illusions that her new husband loves her. Still, her heart cannot resist the noble, brave warrior, and she cannot suppress the hope that she has finally found where she belongs. However, the harder she tries to fit in with the clan and gain Iain's love, the farther away her dreams drift. Iain is more than willing to give his respect to his courageous wife - her kisses and caresses even ignite his blood and demand his passion - but he refuses to give up his heart.

one of my all-time favorites !

A Little DeJaVu.....But Great!
I love highlander books and this one is enchanting, exciting, and adventurous from beginning to end. It has wonderful characters and a delightful story......but I have to admit, a little into the story I started to get a little dejavu. It took me a while to figure it out but the story is very reminiscent of "The Bride" by Julie Garwood. In fact, much of the storyline is similar. So, if you liked "The Bride" you are sure to enjoy this one too. 😉
Tim Campbell did a wonderful job narrating, as usual. 😀
