Book Description

In this irresistible follow-up to her captivating debut, In Bed With a Stranger, Mary Wine revisits the McJames clan--their loves, their battles, their conquests. . .

Cullen McJames will not have his honor sullied, certainly not by his clan's nemesis Laird Erik McQuade. So when McQuade tells the Court of Scotland that Cullen has stolen his daughter's virtue, Cullen steals the daughter instead.

Since his brother wed a fetching lass, Cullen's been thinking he too needs a wife. A marriage could end the constant war between the clans. And looking on Bronwyn McQuade but once has put her in his dreams for a week. . .

But Bronwyn won't go quietly. She won't be punished for what she did not do. Nor is she eager to live among the resentful veterans of McQuade wars. And however brave and beautiful a man Cullen may be, he has much to learn about a woman's fighting spirit. But as Bronwyn will discover, he has much to teach her as well. . .

"My kind of historical!... Sweeps you into the time period without taking a thing away from delightful characters and a charming romance. . .definitely a must-read." --Heather Graham on In Bed With a Stranger

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great romance February 1, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not put this book down. Great romance, sexy characters, and the beautiful scenery of Scotland. What more could a reader ask for? It was near perfect for me. The only downside was that it had to end. After I read this book I bought and read the first book in this series In Bed With a Stranger. Loved it! You don't have to read it before reading this one, but I highly recommend that you do. Mary Wine is now on my list of "auto buy" authors like Kleypas, Quinn, and Kinsale.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little depth to the romance... February 28, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I always enjoy finding new authors that are writing in a favorite setting. However, every so often I find a dud and this is it. It was like the author wasn't sure whether she wanted to write a medieval or a reformation period book. The use of historical references seemed to distract rather than enhance the story (we didn't need to know every time they sat in "x" chair)

As to the depth of the actual story, at most times it was a lot of long drawn out sex scenes (not all that interesting) with a bit of story to break them up. The conflict was superficial most of the time and the story would have been better if the conflict had more sexual tension, not just sex. The conflict seemed way too one-sided making it only an average romance.

Also confusing to this reader was all the secondary characters, they seemed to have little purpose taking away from the spaced needed to tell the heroine/hero's story. Clearly this is a second book in a series and there appears to be some foreshadowing for future stories but this foreshadowing shouldn't take over the story at hand. I was waiting for more story to send the reader on to the next book in the series and yet nothing.

If I didn't know better I would have thought this a first book, and though I know the author has nothing to do with the cover I have to wonder if the publisher even read the description of the heroine. Find it used, if you must read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent medieval Scottish romance February 5, 2010
In 1063 Scotland, Laird Erik McQuade is an angry mean-spirited person. He refuses to provide a dowry for his only daughter Bronwyn McQuade and treats everyone even her with disdain and scorn. He especially loathes the McJames clan.

When Bronwyn and Cullen McJames meet while both are riding, she is unaware he is her father's enemy. She thinks nothing of it except that he is attractive and seems nice especially compared with her family. However her odious troublemaking brothers run off to dad to tell him about the encounter that the male McQuade brood turns into a tryst. Erik demands retribution going to the Court of Scotland in ire with a claim that Cullen took his daughter. Angry but not wanting an incident and besides he likes Bronwyn, Cullen does the last thing Erik expects from his feuding foe; he abducts the man's daughter. Hoping to find the happiness his brother found (see In Bed With A Stranger) and end the feuding, he plans to marry her. When Erik dies, her brothers decide to proceed with the clan vengeance of their late dad; not out of loyalty or honor but with a desire to kill the heir, Bronwyn.

The second McJames medieval Scottish romance is a terrific tale due to the strong heroine who makes a strange bedfellow alliance with a caring peace-seeking laird. The story line is fast-paced throughout while the support cast especially the siblings of the lead couple is fully developed. Fans will want a taste of this delightful wine as the palette will cherish this enjoyable historical.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty quick read August 2, 2010
By Kris C.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book by Mary Wine that I've read. From the beginning I realized that In The Warrior's Bed was part of a series, but I don't think I'll be going back to read the first one. I liked both the hero and the heroine in the story because of their strong personalities. They have strong chemistry from their first meeting, so their ending up together wasn't unrealistic. I did have to remind myself a couple of times that this is a historical romance, and the rules of the society are a lot different from what we have now--disbelief suspended at various points. I am a sucker for a good Scottish romance, but Wine totally botches the dialogue here. Her attempt at authenticity with the accent left much to be desired. "Dinnae" and "ye" thrown throughout, "not" becoming "no" in one part of the sentence and then written as "not" in the same sentence a bit later was very jarring. In addition to the dialogue issues, the narrative of the story also vacillated between accented and unaccented. That doesn't even take into account various spelling issues ("shinny" instead of "shiny"). Overall, I don't feel like I've wasted a couple of hours by reading this book; however, I don't think it was good enough for me to get the next one in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall Rating: 4.25 April 14, 2011
Overall Rating: 4.25 // Action: 3 / Emotion: 3.75 / Romance: 3.75 / Sensuous: 4 / Intrigue: 2 / Historical Flavor: 3 // Humor: 0 / Tears: 0

Inserting this disclaimer after reading other reviews here on Amazon! This rating has taken into consideration the "genre-factor" of the book. Must assume that any book published under the "Brava Books" trademark is (generally) going to be lacking in depth of plot and character so it can strongly focus on the sexuality between the protagonists.
- - - - - - - - - - -
In an effort to keep his daughter off the marriage market (and to devalue the name of his hated enemies) Laird Erik McQuade tells the king and his courtiers that Cullen McJames has dishonored his daughter. Boldly, Cullen determines to kidnap Bronwyn McQuade to kill two birds with one stone. Their marriage would clear his name and the family ties would end the thirty-five-year-old long feud between the clans.

"In The Warrior's Bed" is an enjoyable read about a charming, hunky Scottish rogue who tries to win the heart of a strong-willed, determined Scottish lass who doesn't share his point of view. Although Cullen and Bronwyn share a connection and fight their way towards falling in love, the book features more sexual tension and graphic love making than emotional angst.
