So it happened... I found a book by Julie Garwood that I didn't love. Not that it was bad, it was just not up to par with the other Garwood books I've read.

The Wedding starts with 10-year-old Highlander Connor MacAlister promising his dying father to avenge his death by finding out and killing the ones who betrayed him. This promise basically defines Connor's whole life then and determines the course of his actions throughout the story. 16 years later, Connor's quest for revenge makes him steal...more

The Wedding managed to make its way up into the ranks of Garwood books that earned a five star rating. Why? Because this book took me from laughing hysterically, to being angry enough for my blood pressure to shoot up (or so my throbbing temples testified to), to being so sad I wanted to cry. Also, it's just darn entertaining.

I've read many, many romance novels in my thirty-some years, and Julie Garwood has a way of writing singular heroines, like no other author. On first glance, they seem too...more

Looks like I'm one of the few who didn't enjoy this book. I had high hopes to start but ended up disappointed and frustrated for most of the books.

I found "The Wedding" frustrating, wearisome, and confusing at times. There were some funny and endearing parts, but those moments soon gave way to frustration again. I also had a devil of a time trying to connecting with these characters. I didn't hate the book but I certainly didn't like it either.

I'm not sure why this story didn't sit well w...more

The Bride followed by The Wedding are, in my opinion, Garwood's best work. If you are new to Garwood, these 2 books are a great place to start.

Julie Garwood is different than most of the romance authors that I read in the fact that I find myself loving her heroines even more than her heroes! I usually read romance novels for the larger than life men they ususally come with, but Garwood's Ladies steal the show.

In The Wedding, Brenna is one of those "show stealers". This character is so refreshi...more

ohh.. It was a good read alright!! :)

I have to say that i favor the themes where couple is married from the start,and make it work out. It eliminates some nonsense, specially from historical.

This book is the second installment of the Laird series. I enjoyed the The Bride,but i felt this books was much more thorough, hence more satisfying ending.

I loved the way Garwood developed this characters;we had enough information on both of them from their childhood.which makes the plot a notch more deep....more

Just imagine. It is the early 12th century in the Scottish Highlands and you've just had a row with your husband, your very new husband. He's taking off for an undefined amount of time and doesn't even bother to say goodbye. You whisper your adieu to him and you take your leave, heartbroken, feeling unwanted and alone. As you walk up the hill, you suddenly feel the ground shaking and others are rushing to get off the path in front of you. Before you can face the impending danger, you are plucked...more

Lady Brenna was in the Highlands because her father got her an arranged match. However on her journey, a fierce group of highlanders (painted like they were going to war),say she is going to wed her leader, Connor.
Connor reminds her that she did asked him to marry her 3 times and that he is finally accepting. A bold move for a women of that time,right? Lets just say that she was a toddler when she ask him, barely not remembering that she actually did it.
So in order to save her fathers soldiers,...more

Love, Love, LOVE this book! It is a completely personal thing, everyone has their opinion of which Julie Garwood historical touches perfection most closely. I'm just saying this one is it for me. So..... gushing fan-girl review (which may or may not help a single soul) to follow:

I LOVE Brenna, the heroine, in her, I have found my doppelganger. That is both weird and wonderfully amazing. I understand her personality, her choices, her humor and I love every single one of those things.

I LOVE Conn...more

Re-read Dec 2012

Sublime dialogue. I absolutely loved it!

Julie Garwood, as always, writes such charming and funny interactions between her characters. I can't stand misunderstanding being used as a driver of tension, because for me it's usually very weak. Therefore, I love how Garwood sorts these out very swiftly and intelligently through her dialogue. She really captures how two people can perceive things differently and interpret things wrongly, but she does it believably and with lashings of h...more

My favorite line of all time:

"Nay, lass. Conner."

Another amazing book by Julie Garwood ! I really love her Historical Romance novels! The Wedding is the sequel to The Bride and tells of the amazing romance that develops between Breanna and Connor MacAlister. When Brenna was just a little girl Connor paid a visit to her home and she was captivated by him. She was always getting into mischief and when Connor saved her from an angry mother pig Breanna was determined to marry him one day so she asked Connor to marry her 3 times. Little did she kno...more

It was a typical Julie Garwood book , bringing a big smile to your face and a few laughs while reading it , and a huge number of awws !! When the hero who of course arrogantly thinks he can get the heroine to submit to him and always listen to him , and the heroine decides that she will tame her husband and their struggles and fights and sweet moments together. And we read and think with our own secret smile , ah ! Fight all you want to but like all other heroes , evntually even you will fall in...more

I just spent four shameless hours reading this romantic historical, and ((GASP)) I loved every minute of it! LOLOL Julie Garword pens a great, faced-paced, funny romance where her male characters are saa-woon worthy and mighty fine.

The Wedding is a simple love story about a ginormous Scottish Laird named Connor, who also happens to be hawt and …. well alpha of course… He captures the bride of his sworn enemy and ((big surprise)) marries Brenna to spite his foes. No need to dive into the plot… it...more

Well after having read 4 books from this author I can say I love her style and that after JQ and LK she has become my fav historical romance. Still, while I had a great time reading her books, I just don't get to love her characters as much as I did the ones of the authors I had just mentioned. It's like I love everything that happens and what they say and do, but I never get to remember them really, not even their names,lol, I guess that says something...


I will definitely be reading more from J...more

I never thought I’d be saying this about a medieval but, this was a cute book. It was very funny and I enjoyed the interaction between the hero and heroine. I liked the heroine much more than the hero though. She had a great personality while I felt a little let down on the sexual appeal of the hero. The writing was really good so I can't give it anything less than 3 stars. I can see why this one is a favorite of many but it just didn't have all the quality's I look for to make it a favorite of...more

Julie Garwood is a favorite author, but this is my least favorite of all her books. I didn't fall in love with Connor, the hero.
Idiot. Unworthy. Not dream worthy.
Some of my favorites by this author -- with heavenly heroes -- are The Bride, The Gift, Honor's Splendor, Saving Grace, Ransom, The Secret.

this is how I felt while reading this novel , oh I am so much better after the mentally exhausting week...

4 1/2 stars for the humor and everything else that's garwood.

first off, connor is the least hero that i like in garwood's historicals. besides having a low, almost nil sense of humor, he has hardly shown that usual unconscious affection towards his lady love that garwood grants her chieftain/warrior/delicious-to-the-kilt males. more often than not, he is rude and sometimes even indifferent to brenna.

brenna, fortunately, is a very likeable heroine. her idiosyncrasies are so adorable.

but what i...more

Another great one by JG, and it goes without saying that it contains everything I like about her works: funny, witty, sweet, kind of absurd, making me shake my head and cry out loud.
I LOVE Connor and I love Brenna. But although Brenna was a 'typical' JG heroine, I sometimes had the feeling she was dim witted, or on one level with and eight-year old child. Yeah, childish describes some of her actions and what she says quite well... But STILL: We are talking about my beloved Julie Garwood (hehe),...more

Romantic and funny.
It is mostly about how Brenna from England tries her best to adjust in her Highlander husband's home in Scotland. She is constantly under duress as to how to please not only her stern and gruff husband but also how to win over the other members of the MacAlister clan, including her husband’s snob and uptight step-mother.
Connor, Brenna's husband and the chieftain of the MacAlister clan, is no less uppity and it is his stubborn refusal to share his plans with Brenna that leads t...more

I have no idea what the author was trying to achieve by showing the heroine like a naive sputtering fool.she wasn't sweet,she was stupid and annoying.
I know I've given this high rating and I really liked the overall story but the not the way that character was!

theres not really much to say... only that im sooooo glad i found you julie garwood!!!!

A heart that was nurtured to seek revenge against the people responsible for his father's murder and the destruction of his home has left Connor MacAlister without a day of true peace.

With vengeance in his heart and revenge on his mind, Connor would do anything to humiliate his enemy, including abducting his enemy's future wife and marrying her for himself.

Lady Brenna was taking a break by a stream when she heard a shout from her camp, when she arrived it was to see that five "outcast" have subd...more

it was not a perfect five stars. its more of 4.8 or 4.9. does it make a sense because honestly i will not settled for four star. the book was a favorite of mine, though i admit im not fully satisfied.

on the first half of this book, i felt i was going nowhere waiting for connor to improve his behavior towards brenna. they said he's cruel. is he? no, he just misinterpreted what brenna needed. he seemed always lost in guessing his wife's feeling. and so he did what he think was right for her and en...more

This is one of those books which can make you laugh out loud starting from the first chapter up to the end. It was very entertaining. I can't put it down and I stayed awake in the wee hours of the morning just to finish it. I love the characters. I love the plot though it's unlikely to happen. This is more thrilling than the first book. I don't know if Garwood wrote this book as a mockery to English people because it's as though the E...more

OK, I admit it. A long time ago, I was a huge Julie Garwood's fan. She has been a big influence in my teenage life. I read her books all the time.

And I picked this one, just to rekindle my memory of her writings.

I guessed I have grown up. I cannot understand how I was once her fan. Her writings for this one is really slow paced, and the flow of her writings make me just want to throw away my Nook at some point. The plot is really unbelievable.

It has a promising start, but the plot just slide dow...more

I have enjoyed the two books under the Laird’s Fiancés Series and wish Julie Garwood would have written more as I’ve gotten very fond of the world she has painted here and of the secondary characters that I would truly like to see again. Perhaps about Quinlan? He’s to be a laird soon… I can only hope JG revisits this series in the future.

In the first half of the book, I thought Julie Garwood rewrote the exact same story of The Bride with different names and a slight variation in the plot. The re...more

“I know the truth now. You've figured out I'm falling in love with you and you're trying to make me stop by hurting me this way. Well it won't work.
One way or another, I'm going to make you care about me. Yes, I am, unless your cold attitude kills me first.
It's only fair, Connor. If I'm going to be miserable, by God, so are you.
I am not a common wench and I will not be treated like one.”
