Highland Bride by Hannah Howell (2002)

Description: Though she has yet to be courted by any man, spirited Gillyanne Murray decides the time has come to visit the dower lands gifted to her by her father’s kinsmen. She arrives to find the small keep surrounded by three lairds, each one vying for her hand… and property. Though resolved to refuse them all, the threat of battle on her threshold forces her to boldly choose a suitor: Sir Connor MacEnroy, a handsome, daring knight of few words. As his wife, Gillyanne is stunned by his terse, cold distance – and her own yearning to feel passion in his arms. Now, bringing her healing touch to a land and a keep ravaged by treachery and secret enemies, she dares to reach out for the one thing she fears she my forever be denied… her husband’s closely guarded heart.

Review: This has it all. A manly man, a heroic woman, and romance. I really enjoyed this story. I have always loved the tartness of Gillyanne and was glad to see her have a most interesting story. Although, there were many times I wanted to smack Connor, the overall story was great. It was nice to see that she was able to show him the error of his ways and work her way into his heart. This is a story that you can read over and over again and find more to like about it.

Score: 4 out of 5
