Bride of the MacHugh — All About Romance
I had read this book many years ago and my copy was misplaced. When Elspeth arrives unexpectedly in Scotland and is abducted by orders of the “Black MacHugh,” the brise laird of clan MacHugh, she takes him to task for his arrogance, and a spark ignites between these two strong-willed people.
I wasn’t impressed by the stereotypical characters; innocent virgin, the Man and the wicked mistress First, I love the way the two lovers stare at each other with such a deep, intense focus. Besides all of this, because it really was sumptuously written and Off wanted to like it, I found the hero quite the bastard.
I’ve never read a more powerful male hero than this book. I finished the book feeling dissatisfied with the short screen-time Alex and Elspeth had together.

Readers like myself who aren’t familiar with early seventeenth-century Scottish history machuhh left to infer that the feuding is in response to politics and the Campbell greed, but it’s glossed over. Elspeth is exasperated by the arrogant Scots chieftain who kisses her whenever he likes. What if the heroine had run away with someone else or something? Alexander MacHugh was head of one of Scotland’s mightiest clans when the rebellious Highlanders rallied around the MacDonald banner. My friends on Goodreads recommended this book to me, and I was happy to find it.

The author must thw done a lot of research but I never felt that she was trying to overwhelm me with that research. I’m not including the picture of the Sourcebooks edition because it’s too tawdry and misleading. Every time I have to interpret what the supposedly, sexy Scott said, it pulls me right out of the story and makes me want to toss the book against the wall.
I rather liked the story of her parents. In his unholy pursuit of power, he has already destroyed the Clan McGregor, has begun subduing the MacDonalds, and is laying plans for the MacHugh and Lamont holdings.
And I chuckled right along with him, shaking my head and wishing I macbugh just give her a little whisper in her ear to stop fighting the inevitable.
This gif is dedicated to Bama, because I know how she adores them: It adds realism to the book and a gravity to the characters actions.
I would call this a Scottish historical romance. This was my first ever bodice-ripper.

On the other hand, the story is very good, the secondary characters are well-developed for the most part the villainess is another clicheand I didn’t see the story twists coming.
