Lady Bronwyn McArran is a Scottish Laird captured by the hated English and forced to marry one of theirs. Stephen Montgomery came to Scotland to conquer, but is he strong enough to conquer Bronwyn? As he falls hopelessly in love with this fiery Scot he tries with every fiber of his being to win her respect, and her love.
Very well written as usual for Jude Deveraux. She is a fantastic writer that takes the reader on delightful romantic journeys through her literary works.
This was a very fun read. Sensual and entertaining with a good handful of humor as the two pros constantly butt heads. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who likes a bit of romance. ( )

Stephan is given a very reluctant Bronwyn for his wife. She hates his guts right from the start because she is Scottish and he is English. Him being late for their wedding is just icing on the hate cake. Bronwyn is is a strong woman but boy is she a hothead! Lots of adventure await in the second installment in the Velvet Series and it is a book you do not want to miss out on reading. I devoured ever word and wished for more. ( )

More enjoyable than "The Velvet Promise" due mainly to the fact that the hero in this one isn't dumber than a bowl of mice. Interestingly enough, it seems to be a story all about the dangers of being too blinded by pride to communicate adequately and appropriately with one's partner, which isn't a bad lesson in general. Nice example of an unusual female character in the lead -- she's the leader of a Scots clan who isn't about to give power and control to her husband just because he's a man and she's a woman. This one also drives the "Velvet" plot forward, and we start to figure out exactly what the ultimate conflict is -- but not who's going to be involved in the endgame. ( )

I loved this book. I very rarely keep a romance novel for a second read, but i kept this one. It's a wonderful story, with likeable characters. Romance at it's best. Truely a great read. ( )

From BackCover:
Bronwyn MacArran was a proud Scot.
Stephen Montgomery was one of the hated English.

He came to Scotland as a conqueror, saw her beauty and was vanquished. But still she would abhor him.

She owned a temper hot enough to forge the armors of battle or inflame a valiant soldier's passion. Yet still she would resist him.

She became his reason to live, his reason to love. And still she would deny him.

But while clan fought against clan, while brother took up sword against brother, and the highlands ran with blood -- their destiny was made... and this mighty warrior pledged himself to his woman's pride, her honor and her name -- and made of their love a torch to burn through the ages! ( )
