Description: From New York Times bestselling author 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. The Bride sweeps readers back to the savage beauty of medieval Scotland.
“If you have never read a historical romance, I recommend you start with The Bride. It’s the romance I recommend to first time romance readers. Forget anything you ever heard about a ‘bodice ripper’ as they were once known and get ready to be dazzled. The Bride is delightful, laugh out loud funny in parts and I dare you not to fall in love with Alec and Jamie while they fall in love in the book. Who doesn’t love an arrogant Highlander and an enchanting English lass. If you enjoyed The Bride, try out the second book The Wedding. Julie Garwood also writes a series of romantic suspense novels.” ~ Wanda Clarke
