About the Author

Laurin Wittig was marked by her Scottish heritage at birth, when her parents chose her uniquely spelled name from a plethora of Scottish family monikers. At ten, she attended her first MacGregor clan gathering and her first ceilidh, where she danced with the hereditary chieftain of the clan. At eleven, she visited Scotland, and it has fueled her imagination ever since.

She studied anthropology at Brown University before launching a career in the computer industry. But as a voracious reader, it was only natural she would become a storyteller too. She penned her first book when her children were young, writing whenever they napped. Her novel The Devil of Kilmartin won the National Readers' Choice Award for short historical romance, and all of her books have appeared on the Amazon Top 100 Historical Romance and Top 100 Historical Fiction lists. Wittig lives in southeastern Virginia with her two children, her husband, and their rescue Eskie.

This is the first book i have read by Laurin Witting. I wasn't sure about buying the book because there was only one other review but I'm glad I did. She is a strong story teller. Focusing more on her characters than the background which is a nice change. It is not a racey tale but it is agreat story. I am looking forward to reading her other books. Don't miss this one!

Think I found myself a new author! Very good book. I felt really sorry for Cat. She was treated so badly her whole life and had no idea how to handle someone being kind to her. I thought her title of Shrew was very undeserved. I loved the hero Tayg. Then again is there ever such a thing as a unlikable hero?? Wonderfully sweet personality. He was so great with Cat. He did love to push her buttons though. Only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is I like a little fluff at the end of the book, especially if the story ends right when they get together. No epilogue no perfect rating!

I've already purchased Laurin's Devil and will also get her book 2 in the MacLeods series (maybe I'll have my Tayg/Cat update there??)

This is a very well rounded love story, and much more practical emotionally than most of the romances out there. The characters are developed well, and the interaction between the two main characters is great. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone. Warning: The story is addictive, I could hardly put it down until I finished it!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Only slight imperfections, a somewhat slow beginning, & emotional power that isn't quite as compelling as some others keep this book from receiving 5 stars.

Tayg is a fine hero, a charmer uncertain how to step into his deceased brother's shoes and unwilling to be forced into marriage by his parents. Cat is not quite the shrew indicated -- don't expect a remake of Shakespeare here. But she does use shrewishness as a defense against what she has come to expect of men, thanks to her brothers & father. Tayg's kindness and sincere compliments allow glimpses of the softer woman beneath the armour.

One the plot starts moving, the pace is good, keeping the reader interested in the book. The truths behind Cat's eldest brother's machinations is handly extremely well. And the ending is quite satisfying and heartwarming.

Most enjoyable, and I look forward to more from this author.

I love romance novels where you can tell that the author did their research. This book was was of those and I was impressed because I have never read any of Laurin Wittig's books. Great, quick weekend or beach read. Worth picking up if you like historical romance novels.

*Rating 4.5 Stars

Tayg Munroe of Culrain just returned home after years of fighting for the king. He returns home with a heroes welcome and many songs sung by bards of his exploits. But now that he is heir to the Chiefdom, after the death of his older brother Robbie, his mother has given him an ultimatum – choose a bride by the end of the month or she will choose one for him. His father on the other hand has given him an opportunity to search for a bride outside Culrain and help king as well. So after coming up with the idea to be a bard to remain incognito and go about his business in helping the king…
Catriona MacLeod, is known as the Shrew of Assynt, for speaking her mind, her sharp tongue and her temper. When her ill-mannered brother, Broc breaks the news that she is to wed, Duff “Dogface” MacDonnell, and tells all that she will not marry him and if they make she will kill him. After cooling off and having a conversation with her brother Ailig, she comes up with a plan to get out of this marriage… go to the king and ask him to find a husband for her. During her escape of Assynt she gets thrown off her horse and crosses path with a Bard…
When Tayg meets Catriona and discovers she is the infamous Shrew of Assynt, all he wants is to take her back home, but after discovering a plot against the king between her brother Broc, and her betrothed Dogface, he decides to take her as hostage to the king and take care of this plot forming against him. But as time goes by during their travels he begins to see that Catriona’s shrewdness is her armor against those that could hurt her. And their attraction for each other increases as each day goes by….

This was the first book I have read by Lauren Wittig and I must say that I really enjoyed it.

In recent years I've steered clear of "romance" because much of what I've sampled has been far from romantic. This book was refreshingly much better than my expectations. The story was classic, the romance tender and believable, the pacing perfect. The protagonists were well developed characters full of old-fashioned virtue (loyalty, courage, pride) which lead to the requisite misunderstandings and growth experiences. The happily ever after was sweet and satisfying.

I hadn't read a romance novel in several years, I had gotten tired of the same old story with only slightly different main characters. I'm really glad I decided to pick this one up. It quickly swept me in, and I enjoyed the twists and turns it took. Now that I've finished it and gotten a full nights sleep, I'll start the second book. I highly recommend this book.
