New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood has captured the hearts of millions of listeners worldwide with timeless tales of love and soaring adventure. Now, returning to the enchanting world of her classic love story The Bride, she brings to glorious life the passion, intrigue, and rivalry of medieval Scotland....
Resigned to an arranged marriage to a highland laird she has never met, Lady Brenna journeys from England to Scotland certain she will suffer a loveless marriage. But en route to her betrothed, a rival band of Werce, painted warriors intercept her caravan and demand that she marry their leader—the handsome, quick-tempered laird Connor MacAlister, the same man she'd repeatedly proposed to as a child while he'd been a visitor to her father's castle. Though Brenna scarcely remembers the secret missives she'd sent to MacAlister declaring her love, she has never forgotten the tall visitor's dazzling, unexpected smile.
Now older and wiser, Brenna harbors no illusions that Connor is in love with her—indeed, after a hasty forest wedding, Connor assures her she can return home once she has borne him a son. Lady Brenna has no idea that her capture is merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor's sworn enemy. Determined to be happy, Brenna soon endears herself to most of the MacAlister clan, despite—or perhaps because of—her uncanny knack for getting into trouble. And although she comes to adore her brave, superstitious, gentle husband, she has no clue that Connor lives for the moments she whispers "I love you"...words she never meant him to hear. But, as she sets out to win the heart of the brave chieftain, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war—and only her faith in her gallant husband can save her....

Ten New York Times bestsellers- including her latest, For the Roses-verify what Julie Garwood's fans have always known: she is a masterful storyteller. "Julie Garwood attracts readers like beautiful heroines attract dashing heroes," says USA Today. Now, returning to the enchanting world she created in The Bride, she delights us again with another fascinating tale of love, adventure, and soaring ambitions, set in twelfth-century Scotland....
Lady Brenna MacAlister harbored no illusions that her husband, a quick tempered highland laird, was in love with her. How could he be enamored of his bride when, on their wedding day, he had assured her that she could return to her home in England as soon as she had given him a son?
Marrying Connor MacAlister had been an impulsive act for Brenna. But MacAlister and his warriors, a savage-looking band who had captured her and her party en route to her arranged marriage to another, offered precious few alternatives. Nor could Brenna deny that in fact she had proposed to MacAlister-even if that had been ten long years ago, when she was just a child, and Conner a visitor to her father's castle. Actually, Brenna scarcely remembered the secret missives she'd sent to MacAlister, abetted by her mischievous older sister... yet she had never forgotten the tall visitor's dazzling, unexpected smile.
Now, after a hasty forest wedding, they were man and wife. Determined to be happy, Brenna soon endeared herself to most of the clan, despite-or perhaps because of-her uncanny knack for getting into trouble. And although she grew to adore her brave, superstitious, gentle husband, she had no clue that Connor lived for the moments she whispered "I love you"... words she never meant for him to hear. But when a rival laird struck out at the MacAlisters, trapping Brenna in a web of dangerous intrigue, she knew that only her faith in her gallant mate could save her....About the Author:
