The Wedding (Laird's Fiancées #2) by Julie Garwood

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood brings the soaring adventure, love and rivalry of medieval Scotland to glorious life in this classic historical romance.
Journeying from England to Scotland, Lady Brenna has resigned herself to an arranged match with a highlander. But when a band of fierce, painted warriors captures her en route, she fearlessly meets their demand to instead marry their leader—her betrothed’s sworn enemy—the quick-tempered Connor MacAlister.
Brenna harbors no illusions that her husband is in love with her, but their shared past gives her hope. Maybe the laird who once visited her father’s castle and charmed her with a dazzling, unexpected smile remains underneath Connor’s stern exterior.
But as she sets out to win the man whom she has come to adore, a legacy of revenge ensnares Brenna in a furious clan war—and only her faith in her new husband can save her...

4 out of 5 stars

This was a seriously entertaining story and I had a fantastic time reading it. Brenna and Connor were awesome characters and I loved the fun trials and tribulations of them getting to their happily ever after.

I loved learning Connor and Brenna’s history of how they met and how they ended up getting married. It was incredibly fun to read. Brenna seems a bit naive but she's incredibly clever and sweet. Connor was super gruff and seemed kind of clueless about women and I loved that back and forth between them as they figure things out. They’re both pretty stubborn so that creates just a lot of challenging scenes that are totally hilarious and had me laughing. I loved when feelings came into play, and how they were evolving and trying to do right by each other. There’s a lot of miscommunication however which makes for even more fun scenes.

There's some mild drama happening, vengeance to be had, and a traitor in their midst and I enjoyed that small suspense element. It wasn't heavy in the story, but it definitely played a part. When all dots start to connect, I thought it was really well done. I loved Connor’s soldiers and their bonds to him and how enamored they were with Brenna. I adored what a big heart she had and how kind she was with everyone. The overall theme was fun and entertaining for sure. I loved seeing Alec and Jamie from The Bride and getting updates on their life and enjoyed the connection to Connor.

This was a great story to lose myself in and I had a blast reading it. It was light and fun with a bit of tension and angst mixed in. It’s totally delightful and charming and left me with a smile on my face.
