The Wedding is Books While I liked this one too I didn't like it as much as the first one. The heroine was just to much of a push over trying to please people and it bugged me but other than that a cute read!. It s a classic plot a marriage of convenience that lays the groundwork for true love 1119 Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, Lady Brenna had resigned herself to the arranged match But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captured her en route, she fearlessly met their demand to marry their leader the quick tempered laird Connor MacAlister SIt s a classic plot a marriage of convenience that lays the groundwork for true love 1119 Journeying from England to Scotland to wed a highlander, Lady Brenna had resigned herself to the arranged match But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captured her en route, she fearlessly met their demand to marry their leader the quick tempered laird Connor MacAlister She couldn t know that her capture was merely the first act of vengeance against her betrothed, Connor s sworn enemy.Brenna harbored no illusions that her husband was in love with her after a hasty forest wedding, MacAlister assured her she could return home once she had borne him a son But she could not deny that she had once proposed to MacAlister ten years ago, when she was just a child, and the visitor to her father s castle charmed her with his dazzling, unexpected smile Now, as she sets out to win the brave chieftain whom she has come to adore, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war and only her faith in her gallant hero can save her.. The best Books The Wedding 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 away his enemy's bride, Lady Brenna, an Englishwoman who he met some years ago when he was a young lad and she was a child, and who innocently proposed to him back then. Connor isn't aware that Brenna is his enemy's bride when he sets out to claim her as his own bride, but he's more than satisfied now that he knows it.What follows is one of the funniest wedding scenes I've ever read. It wasn't as good as the one in Ransom, but it was a blast and I giggled all the way through it. After they're properly married, Connor and Brenna start their journey back to his home, where he can drop her and keep working on his revenge against his father's killers. And that's where the story lost me...I really enjoyed the 1st half of the book, and I could have bet it was going to be another winner to me. I was definitely starting to fall for Connor, the arrogant and gruff warrior who had - or seemed to have - a soft spot when it came to his new wife, even if he would have killed himself before he acknowledged it. I adored Brenna, the somewhat clueless young lady who was decided to make the best of a bad situation while trying to find a way out of it. And I loved Garwood's humorous writing, that had me smiling and laughing at the nonsense that came out of Connor's mouth and mind. I knew - or better, hoped - his cold and bossy behavior would start to change a bit as he got to spend more time with Brenna and build a true relationship with her, so I put up with him in the beginning. Unfortunately, that change never came...I swear, I started to frown when Connor left Brenna to her own devices as soon as he arrived home, trusting her to follow him around. WTH, did he think she was like a pet? And when he "found" her - not that he'd ever admit he had "lost" her in the 1st place! -, he didn't appologize for having forgotten about her. No, he berated her for the grievance she'd put him through. What a charming man. Not!Then, things got worse when Connor just up and went to fight some battle against one of his enemies next, leaving his newlywed wife Brenna to deal with his stepmother and his stepbrother alone. At that point, everything went down hill. Brenna, who I still liked by then, started to act like an idiot, failing to see what a b!tch Connor's stepmother was. Anyone, including the servants, could see that, but Brenna kept illuding herself into thinking the old woman was just "difficult". Naturally, no good came from Brenna's willingness to hide from the truth right before her eyes. She pretty much became a pushover, and that was so different from how she'd behaved in the 1st half of the story that I started to wonder if I was reading the same book.As I finished the book, I was still trying to figure out why and how exactly Connor and Brenna fell in love with each other. They didn't know each other at all and kept misunderstanding their feelings and actions. Connor's constant refusal to talk and explain himself - he was Laird, why should he "waste" his time explaining his actions to his wife? - didn't help matters. He was so focused on avenging his father's death that I never felt he dedicated enough time to actually fall for Brenna. Okay, he was all mushy and head-over-hills in love with her by the end of the book, but I had a hard time buying it. I mean, this was the same man who'd left her alone at home right after their hasty wedding, wasn't it? As for Brenna, I also didn't understand why she fell for Connor considering how he'd basically neglected her most of the time and hadn't shown any glimpse of loving affection before the final pages.All things considered, this was kind of a disappointing read. Like I said, it wasn't bad, but I had high expectations - which were reinfoced by the wonderful 1st half of the story - and they weren't met. But I don't regret reading it and I'm going to keep it, as I may feel in the mood to reread the 1st half in the future.
