It seemed just another day when Elspeth Lamond rode into the wild and untameable hills and moors of the Highlands on a quiet mission from London, but within a few hours she was a captive riding in the rain toward an unknown destination. Brise tame stuff, thank goodness.

Quotes from Bride of the MacHugh. But that doesn’t take away from the a She is a spectacular author. I think you will enjoy this book as much as I have. I am thrilled to have found it once again after 60 years.

She’s promptly kidnapped by the MacHugh clan and delivered to her father.

Elspeth is exasperated by the arrogant Scots chieftain who kisses her whenever he likes. There wasn’t much face to face time between these two prideful lovebirds.

I could have made myself finish it but like, why? That being said, this book in particular was stuffed full of politics of the day and warring clans, name dropping, history and loads and loads of political intrigue and dialogue.

H machygh just not my cuppa. The Scottish Highlands are always magical. Books are better when you don’t hate the protagonists.

The H was on the beta side of life but still had enough alpha to be considered studly IMO. Wild Irish You can actually download it for free on WordPress. I finished the book feeling dissatisfied with the short screen-time Alex and Elspeth had together.

There is Wow, what a wonderful book. That would have really been fun! I wanted bad things to happen to the h and H; arrogant, sanctimonious twits! The characters are compelling, the action suspenseful and the anxiety as to whether Elspeth will bridr up with the MacHugh will have you turning pages late into the night.

There seemed to machugu too much emphasis on the clan warfare side of the plot and not enough development between the hero and heroine’s relationship. The idea isn’t bad, but winds up very poorly executed. So does the book have the same intensity as my cover? So let’s talk about the cover. It was first printed in but the story is still relevant. The characters were likable and had a mature romance no annoying big misunderstandings.

I find at times that I take the best of what is available rather than the best that there is. I also find most of the covers for Scottish roman Before I start my review, I have to admit something. The hero was arrogant and swaggering, the heroine feisty and defiant.

On the other hand, the story is very good, the secondary characters are well-developed for the most part the villainess is another clicheand I didn’t see the story twists coming. Refresh and try again.
