My o Pleasant, but the political themes and romance were underdeveloped despite the fine prose. Jul 02, Duchess Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: Loved this back in the day! The characters are kf and appealing; the MacHugh is a proud and honorable warrior, and Elspeth is a fitting mate.

There seems to be a certain stereotype with Scottish heros.

The supporting cast in this book is also worthy of note. I read this book as a teen and loved it, and over the years I’ve re-read it several times and it has never disappointed.

There is no info dump. I’ve been reading it since high school and it still satisfies my yen for a love story.

Delicious thanks Jacob Zuma, can’t help but think of u every time I say that word! The heavy gold ring was warm to the touch, as if it still held the heat of his blood with the metal. There seemed to be too much emphasis mwchugh the clan warfare side of the plot and not enough development between the hero and heroine’s relationship.

The H was on the beta side of life but still had enough alpha to be considered studly IMO. It also takes far too long to reveal the MacHugh.

I didn’t like the characters, therefore I didn’t really care what happened to them, so that’s never a good sign. With the deftness of a master weaver, the descriptions are intertwined in the story.

Bride of the MacHugh

I like MacHugh and Elspeth though and enjoyed their romance. I don’t regret reading this at all.

Some of it I’ve been digging the Highlander novels mzchugh, and I came across this old one from the 50’s. The women have a catty disposition toward each other, and MacHugh seems to be highly amused by this. The first twenty pages in as the heroine is being kidnapped by who I thought was the hero I was so excited!

Oct 09, Becky rated it liked it Shelves: I am, however, glad that I stuck it out. But that doesn’t take away from the author’s skill because even as I wondered what I was supposed to know was happening, the scene was beautifully painted. Jul 22, Tiffany rated it liked it. Elspeth knows and accepts that her powerful guardian, Argyll, will arrange a rich and influential marriage for her when she returns to England, but Alexander is determined that she machigh this craven plan for her future.

Elspeth feels lost and alone amid these wild people, and she resents the feelings that she feels for the MacHugh leader.
