The Bride by Julie Garwood
Published July 1989
By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kinkaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie, youngest daughter of Baron Jamison… a fiesty, violet-eyed beauty. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to posess her… forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian.
He was everything her heart warned against- an arrogant scoundrel whose rough good looks spoke of savage pleasures. And though Kinkaid’s scorching kisses fired her blood, she brazenly resisted him… until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills, and something for more dangerous than desire threatened to conquer her senses…
First, please don’t let this stupid blurb prevent you from reading this book. I don’t think it’s very accurate of the story and the book is much better than the blurb. Whomever wrote that should be strung-up.
Second, I rated this book a 10 which is the best score possible. Was the book perfect? No, but it is definitely one I would buy (in hard-back no less) and keep on my shelf to read again. I can certainly understand why this book is considered a classic.
