What a great story! It has all the ingredients of a good classic romance including a winsome amusing heroine, a handsome sexy taciturn hero, clan feuds, great sub characters and a racing plot. The book totally hooked me in even though it did not quite have the intelligent wit or emotional depth that marks better (and more expensive) authors like Amanda Quick and Julia Quinn.
Brenna is on her way to be forced into a political marriage with a sadistic laird. So she is not totally dismayed when when another laird kidnaps and marries her as revenge against her intended. She intends to be a good wife but they have their differences. She is clumsy and forgetful. He thinks he should not explain himself or even tell her when he is going away, so the marriage is full of fights and frustration. There is a lot of entertainment in the marital conflicts There is also a sweet side story as Brenna first asks her husband to marry her when she is five years old. Other likeable factors are the interesting neighbours and the budding romance of Brennas sister, all adding interesting layers to the book.
The human interactions and the humour are the strengths of this book, but some of the drama is a little overwrought, with villains so evil they are hard to believe. Even so 'the wedding' is likeable good natured fun, and a very pleasant way to pass a weekend afternoon.
