Ailis Robertston and Bhaic MacPherson are born enemies - but due to the scheming of the Earl of Morton - regent of Scotland - they are forced to marry.
At first I found Ailis to be very immature and naïve - she agreed to the marriage, but ran back to her father's home the first chance she got. She acts more like a girl of 15 or 16 rather than a woman of 23. Bhaic lets her go and makes no attempt to bring her back. They met again about a month later at the May Day festival. Bhaic gets jealous when Ailis is dancing with a rival clans heir and when he intervenes - she again runs off. This time Bhaic follows her - and saves her from being abducted. They share a heated moment which could have led to the consummation of their marriage - but they are interrupted by Bhaic's brother Marcus. Their fathers are ready to start a war over Ailis' abrupt disappearance and they are needed to break up the fight. This is when Ailis starts to grow up and agrees to go home with Bhaic and solidify the marriage to stop the feuding.
Ailis' reception at the MacPherson hall is less than welcome and I liked that Ms. Wine didn't make it easy for Ailis to fit in - the hatred between these two clans runs deep and it would have been too unrealistic to believe that everyone would fall in love with Ailis and accept her right away. Bhaic is kind to Ailis, but he won't consummate their marriage until she comes to him. He tries to woo her and several times these two are close to getting the deed done when they are interrupted - it actually got to be quite humorous.Read more ›
Grabbing you in the beginning with a fate you can't help but have feelings towards sucks you in immediately. I read this book in two days because I absolutely couldn't put it down. I wanted to know every single thing that was going to set Ailis and Braic back each day. I wanted to to see how each of them were going to overcome years of hatred between two families, and more than anything I wanted to see them fall in love.
Wine knows how to keep her readers in suspense and on the edge of their seats. I thought I was going to scream every time I thought that it would finally be Ailis and Braic's moment when they would finally couple, only to have yet another interruptions. It drove me crazy all the prying eyes, and controlling McPherson's that interfered in their relationship. It was fun having all those emotions though. I even found myself cry for a second for Ailis and her assistant Helen because it was so hard for women back then not being heard.
On top of all the factors that were against them dealing with their feuding clans, they also had to deal with enemy clans neighboring them. Not giving anything away...read the book!! It's sooo good!There is always something around the corner guaranteed to happen when you read Wine story.
Ailis Robertson is feisty, loyal and fierce, determined to have a life that both suits the clan and perhaps brings her some personal happiness. She wants to marry and find love, but with a man, not a savage being from a clan she’s been taught to hate and fear all of her life.
Bhaic MacPherson is a feared warrior in battle, a loyal clansman and at heart, truly kind. Not loving the idea of a forced marriage, he finds Ailis admirable and courageous. He’s going to make the best of the situation to respect his clan’s decree, he just didn’t expect to fall in love with the enemy.
Mary Wine uses emotions we can all relate to: a desire for acceptance, a fear of the unknown, a determination to make the best of a situation you aren’t particularly thrilled with because the choice is untenable. Combine this with a tentative getting to know you phase that is spurred onward by an obvious physical attraction, finding these two slowly unveiling themselves and allowing their attraction to grow. Both Bhaic and Ailis are determined, honest and courageous: understanding that the future of Scotland relies on the cooperation of the clans and they are willing, eventually, to do their part.
The characters are the highlight in this story: moving us through an obviously difficult and tense situation for both of them, while displaying their own personalities as the story progresses.Read more ›
