Summary

Summary

In the Scottish Highlands of the 15th century, Gillyanne Murray has yet to be courted, but she visits the lands given to her by her father's kinsmen. She arrives to find three lairds, each one vying for her hand--and property. When the threat of battle forces her to choose, she selects Sir Connor MacEnroy. As his wife, she is stunned by his coldness--and dares to reach out for her husband's closely-guarded heart.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or as colorfully as Hannah Howell, and she demonstrates her considerable skill at setting scenes and crafting clever characters in Highland Bride, the final installment in her 15th century Murray daughters trilogy (Highland Knight, etc.). Petite, tenacious Gillyanne Murray has never had men fawn over her, so she is alternately stunned, annoyed and amused when she suddenly receives three marriage proposals from lairds who covet her dower lands. After ably repelling her suitors for three days, Gilly chooses the cold but gentle Connor MacEnroy, who may be too closed off to give her the one thing she needs his affection. To the reader's delight, the large and loving Murray clan eventually join the mix, but it is Gilly and Connor's vibrant personalities and teasing banter that make the story glow.
