5.0 out of 5 stars One of her best! November 3, 2000
After two years of peace, the McKinnons and the Fergussons are feuding again. Sheena Fergusson and Jamie McKinnon are destined to come together in marriage to bring an end to the feud. But there is a third party out there who is determined to keep the feud going and bring up old wounds and hurt. This story is one of my favorites by Lindsey. Sheena and Jamie are both very likable characters and the chemistry between them is great! The love scenes are steamy and exciting and the plot is very interesting. A great book by a great author!

A Gentle Feuding" is an outstanding story! In the Highlands of Scotland, beautiful Lowlander Sheena is taken against her will to Castle Kinnion and gains the interest of the Laird -- her clan's mortal enemy -- and his brother.

Jamie is a hero's hero; strong, compassionate, gentle even. Sheena is simply gorgeous, a spirited heroine whose love for her brother Niall leads her into a lot of trouble -- and right into Jamie's arms.

It's fun to see Jamie compete with his brother Colen for Sheena's love, and even more fun to see how Sheena tries to resist them both. There are many memorable scenes in "Gentle Feuding," including the scene where Sheena is trapped in a burning hut after a clan raid. How Jamie reacts is unforgettable.

I can't complain at all about a single thing in this book, it was that good and satisfying. I'm amazed that there are reviewers who disliked Sheena because of her estranged relationship with her sisters or because of her so-called vanity. I personally believe the relationship with the sisters was realistic, and there was not a single vain bone in Sheena's body.

Read "A Gentle Feuding." It's one of Johanna Lindsey's best works.

4.0 out of 5 stars sweet read September 23, 2002
By Amy
I am a diehard fan of romance and though i love a good steamy book as much as the next gal "steamy" can't carry a book alone. To many books have horrible dialouge that sounds like something out of a bad B movie. Johanna Lindsey's defining characteristic, in my opinion, is her dialouge, the rapid byplay of characters allows them to become people instead of those lusty people trying to get out of their clothes as if it were a timed olympic event.
"Gentle Feuding" follows the story of jamie and sheena two people from rival clans. Sheena is the redhaired beauty of her clan and jamie is ofcourse the laird of his. He sees sheena bathing in a pool in a glen (don't we all love a little dip every now and again?) and becomes enchanted by her beauty, as does everyone else who sees her. Though some people thought this whole thing of the herione being the legendary beauty that everyone is always falling all over themselves to get is tacky and unbelievable, but instead it added a sense of romanticism to the work. Sheena has to have her jamie fight off the advances of others to win her. Doesn't ever girl want someone willing to fight for them?
Sheena and Jamie are thrown together by some extraordinary circumstances and Jamie sets out to win Sheena though many others are viaing for her, even his own brother and a third party who is attempting to keep their two clans at war despite everyone's best effort to end it. everyone will love niall, sheena's little brother, because he'll remind you of your own brother at that age and you can't help but smile at his antics.
Another nice aspect to this work was the fact that jamie was actually near Sheena's age. Though sheena is still young by our standards today, 19, jamie is only 25 instead of say in his mid-thirties like most other novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars warning - reissue! February 5, 2000
By A Customer
Please be aware that this book was an earlier book that is now being issued as hardback.
It is a worthwhile read, but boy, do I get irritated with these older books released as hardback without disclosing the earlier copywrite date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book March 23, 2005
By M. Ly
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a romance freak and this is definitely romantic - well to me at least. Sheena is everything I wish for in a heroine. She holds her virtue until marriage and is also very headstrong. Jamie (the hero) is very sweet in his own way. He chose to court Sheena instead of just "take" her like other books, there is very little mushy scenes involved...but the overall book is a good and fast 3 hour read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Reading Experience May 31, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Even through I don't normally read romance novels or a book more than once ---- I love this book and Jamie is truly my ideal of a gentleman. I picked up this book a couple of weeks ago and have already read it twice and I plan on reading it again and again. I only wish I could've lived in that time frame and found someone as handsome inside and out as the hero -- Jamie.

4.0 out of 5 stars a simple, but sweet love story August 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This novel has the most beautiful heroine and she makes the story shine! Another thing I like about this novel is that Jamie and Sheena are in the same age group. I only wish the book was longer. It would be interesting to see what these two characters are like in ten year's time. They both have such fiery tempers! I wish there were more fighting scenes because those are almost always the most fun.

Great points of the story:

A hero that is strong and powerful, but still vulnerable to being captured and to falling in love.

We often read about the invincible hero character who can never be bested. In "A Gentle Feuding," Jamie MacKinnion is the powerful laird of his clan. He is feared by many. Yet, when he sees a beautiful woman bathing in a stream, he is mesmerized. He manages to pull himself away, because he is in enemy territory. Yet, he can't stop himself from returning to the spot several times over the following weeks. He is hoping to catch one more glimpse of her. The last time he goes, he sees her. He is so captured by her beauty, he doesn't realize that his enemy is approaching. He is seized and taken to his enemy's castle, where he is thrown in the dungeon. He doesn't know that the beauty from the stream is the daughter of his enemy, The Laird Fergusson. Nor does Fergusson realize that he has captured "The MacKinnion," a man who could easily have the Fergusson clan demolished. When Fergusson realizes who is in his dungeon, he plans to force MacKinnion to marry one of his three daughters to insure a treaty, before he will set MacKinnion free.

A heroin who is strong willed, without being a total witch.

We also often read about heroines who are so "stubborn" that they become unbearable. Sheena Fergusson likes her freedom, but she does not make it a point to destroy the people around her. She is the oldest and favorite daughter of The Laird Fergusson. She has two younger sisters who resent her, because they cannot marry until after she has. Her father will not force her, so she takes her time. She is waiting to find love. The one sibling that she shares great loyalty with is her little brother, Niall.
