Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or as colorfully as Hannah Howell, and she demonstrates her considerable skill at setting scenes and crafting clever characters in Highland Bride, the final installment in her 15th century Murray daughters trilogy (Highland Knight, etc.). Petite, tenacious Gillyanne Murray has never had men fawn over her, so she is alternately stunned, annoyed and amused when she suddenly receives three marriage proposals from lairds who covet her dower lands. After ably repelling her suitors for three days, Gilly chooses the cold but gentle Connor MacEnroy, who may be too closed off to give her the one thing she needs his affection. To the reader's delight, the large and loving Murray clan eventually join the mix, but it is Gilly and Connor's vibrant personalities and teasing banter that make the story glow.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this novel, the third and final installment in Hannah Howell's second Highland Series featuring those feisty Murray daughters, get to meet the daughter of Eric and Bethia Murray from HIGHLAND PROMISE.

At nearly twenty-one, Gillyanne Murray is considered past the marrying age. Despite travelling to the king's court a few times, she is yet to attract the eye of any man. And as much as she longs to feel the happiness and excitement that she sees in her married female cousins, she has resigned herself to the fact that men just simply find her unattractive, with her faintly mismatched eyes, short stature and lack of curves.

From the age of fifteen, Connor MacEnroy has been the laird of Deilcladach after the deaths of his parents caused by a longstanding feud with other clans. Having lost everything after that tragedy twelve years before, he has rebuilt Deilcladach, raised his siblings and managed the survival of his people. When he, and the two other neighboring lairds hear that an unmarried woman now owns Ald-dabhach, they seek the king's permission to fight for control over the keep.

And so when Gillyanne decides to visit Ald-dabhach, the small keep that a doting uncle has gifted her, little does she know that she would be fighting off three neighboring lairds who have gained the king's permission to marry her and control her keep. When she refuses their proposal, they then took turns attacking her keep, but although she manages to repel their individual attacks, Gilly knows that a combined one could result to bloodshed, therefore she has no other choice but to pick one from them. And based on her initial attraction to him, she chooses Connor.

And so the fun begins.

This was the first of Hannah Howell's books that I have read and it hooked me from the start. It is not the typical 'cookie-cutter' historical romance that so many others tend to be. The characters in this one came alive and were so much more realistic while still fulfilling the need for romance and sizzle. After reading Highland Bride, I sought out Ms. Howell's other Highland novels and have not been disappointed yet. I can't wait for her next one to be published. Do not miss any of her Highland trilogies. I re-read Bride after finishing the first trilogy and it was even better. They are all amazing and since I am personally married to a real Scot, I am picky when it comes to my Scottish romances. Don't miss this Highland Bride or any of her others. Well worth your time.

I really enjoyed this fast paced highland romance. This is the story of a "plain" lady who is determined to not only keep her dower lands in tact without anyone being hurt but she is also determined to only marry for love.
Gilly is able to defeat the 3 knights who are on her doorstep to try and take her hostage to marry her, to get her lands as they boarder their own. It is a riot how she is able to repel all 3 of the armies.
I enjoyed the writers style of writing as well as the strong woman character who is going to make her marriage work in spite of everything that is happening.

This book was abslutely wonderful. The chemistry between Gilly and Connor was sizzling. Hannah Howell had me laughing and crying and cheering from the beginning. This book was hard to put down. I loved it. My first book from Howell, but, definitely not my last.

I know I'm in the minority here, but I wasn't all that wild about this book. I thought it had potential, but just never came together for me. I liked Connor and thought Howell did a good job with him. Maybe what I really don't like is that Gillyanne (and all Howell's heroines) was so tiny. That was stressed over and over--how tiny she was, almost childlike. I think that sort of subconsciously icked me out. Now, romance novel heroines don't have to be Amazons, but I don't like getting a mental picture of a 12 year old. I think that is what kept happening and prevented me from liking this book very much. Come on, next time, have your heroine be at least as big as a 15 year old!!
