As the clan he leads is in a famine when the previous bride refused to wed the laird. The hero travels to England and the second he sees the girl he's to marry, he instantly doesn't think fate is all that bad. The heroine lives in constant fear that her mothers madness wi ...more

The Night Before The Wedding by Debra Mullins

Just a quickie review for this amazing, magical and curse driven Scottish tale of love. Poor Catherine Deplore is cursed by an old Scottish Fagan Curse that she doesn't understand because her mom, who was slowly going insane, jumped out of her bedroom window. Catherine has had dreams of a mysterious Highlander and has craved him all her life. Now she is 18 and going slowly insane with dreams, hearing voices, speaking Gaelic and being chased by her dream Highlander. Highland chief G

The title "The Night Before the Wedding" is a bit misleading, but I still enjoyed Debra Mullins latest historical about sacrifice, a brawny Highland chief, and the spoiled English bride he must marry to save his clan. There's a curse involved too, which just makes it jucier.

Catherine is many things: the daughter of a wealthy businessman, an heiress, beautiful, spoiled, oh...and she's pretty sure she's going mad! Her mother committed suicide at a fairly young age after going mad and Catherine has

Ik heb de Nederlands talige versie gelezen : Jij bent mijn bruid / Candlelight Historische roman 830 .
Dit verhaal vond ik beter dan de vorige ( CH 800 ) die ik van D.Mullins gelezen heb , niet alleen maar omdat het thema Schotse hooglanders en een eeuwenoude vloek mij erg aanspreekt maar het is beter geschreven dan het vorige .

Catherine Depford & Clan Chief Gabriel MacBraedon
Her mother went mad due to the curse and she has started hearing chanting since her 18th birthday and has been dreaming of a Scottish Lord. When she sees him (talking to no one) looking at no one but her she's sure she's mad. Now she's desperate to marry Lord Kentwood who is so kind to his ailing mother. He won't just taker her money and lock her in an asylum. Gabriel knows he must marry to lift the curse on his clan that causes their poverty
A fun historical involving a little bit of magic too! With a mysterious curse, a dark and handsome Chieftan, and a beautifully innocent Lady, this story has all the makings of a rich romance.

Lovely book especially the way it was written but would have love a few extra pages on the end to see what happened in the coming months.
I could have given it a 4star rating but because of the on and on talk if the 'curse' it just really irked me --- so i really get what Catherine was getting at. For someone in a society of prim and proper upbringing then suddenly you think youre getting mad then everyone keeps on blaming a curse, who would believe so but, yes, i know that this book realy is about the curse or we would not have the story itself and yes, i know the Scots side is also approriate since they're the ones suffering but ...more

Catherine was a refreshing character. Selfish but believable. None of that "I don't know what these odd feelings I'm having are" and "why am I so drawn to him?" I hate when books do that! Make the characters dumb to their feelings. Anyway, the whole book was a very simple read. But most romance novels are. I really enjoyed taking a break from thinking while I was reading and just enjoying it.

These old, historical romances are especially fun. The old highlander culture is almost like a fantasy novel. I liked the dynamics of the relationships between each character and how it was written both subtly and loudly.

I really liked the story but the author drug it out until I was yelling at the book. Catherine (the heroine) would not make a decision to save her life. I felt the author could have put in more plot to keep me interested instead of frustrated due to the predictability of this book. I gave it 3 stars because I did relate to the characters.
I did not think this romance book had enough romance (which I found surprising for Debra Mullins, as most of her other books are quite romance filled). There was only one and a half romance scenes and I was expecting more.

Cute story. A bit annoying in the beginning when the heroine is such a spoiled shrew. But she has to overcome her selfish nature to find her happily ever after. Once she arrives in Scotland, she's better.

I’m the oldest of four sisters, and we are full-blooded Irish on our father’s side. Oh, and our house had one bathroom. If you have any questions about where I got my flair for drama, just imagine that scenario on a Saturday night when four teen-aged girls need to g
