Summary

Scotland, 1478. Ruan MacLeod was through with women. They were nothing but trouble.

Leaving the rash life of his youth behind, he returned to Skye, seeking peace. He never meant to split the clan, or start a war with the MacDonald of Duntulm. He certainly never foresaw an arranged marriage to the most scandalous woman in Scotland. Even though she was twice his age, the size of a horse, and mother to more than one illegitimate child, he agreed to secure his sister's freedom.

However, even that plan goes drastically awry. On his wedding day, he finds himself faced instead, with an enticing, green-eyed lass named Bree. A walking disaster, his bride immediately turns his world into chaos, and threatens to melt his resolve never to love again.

Betrayed by her own mother, Bree flees to Skye, thinking only to reunite with her long, lost father. Instead, she finds herself wed to Ruan MacLeod as a replacement bride. When she is forced to remain in the castle, she is soon caught between brothers, and the mentally ill wife of the laird.

Shy, yet strong, Bree embarks on a journey of independence, and learns along the way that all men are not necessarily evil. In fact, one particularly brooding, yet gentle-hearted warrior, is worthy of love, and she soon loses her heart forever.

Don't waste your time...

This story is completely not worth the time in my opinion. The female lead never spoke out about anyting. Whether the problem was big or small she never voiced her opinion. The only time she ever gave her opinion was when she can take it anymore and she would babble out a stream of nonsense to whoever was listening. She would also attack the men who were being kind and gentle with her but would do nothing to the ones who would abuse her. The male lead was just a complete dunce. He would constantly run away from the reality of his situation rather than face it. The people around him had to inform him of what was going on because he wanted to deny the facts. Also the overall story was really bland and boring. I think it was unnecessarily long and drawn-out.

My thoughts

I found that Bree was a little naive. And always accusing Ryan of wrong doing and never willing ask him what the truth was. Narrator sound a little childish. I think story would had been better if they had a better narrator. Over all the story was pretty good

Quick to the end

I was dismayed at how quickly the book concluded after the villian was vanquished. Felt like the author had the minimum number of pages completed, so the conclusion was short and quick. I would also have liked a little more character development of Cameron whose wives kept dying. Something is amiss, but nobody is wondering what's going on?
