5.0 out of 5 stars No, its not the same as Garwood's "The Wedding"- its better, 3 May 2008

This review is from: Sweet Revenge (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a big fan of Julie Garwood books and at first Sweet Revenge got me thinking of Garwood's The Wedding *deja vu*, but Sands book is much better and that says alot. Most of Garwoods historicals are 10 stars books IMHO, but The Wedding isn't. The hero and heroine are not as likeable as they are here in Sand's Sweet Revenge. So, don't let it put you off that if you've read a *similar* story. This one is definitely worth a read.

In a nutshell, the basic plot revolves around revenge. Laird Galen MacDonald ambushes and abuducts his enemies bride-to-be. Its revenge for the killing of his own bride and their unborn babe. He weds the unsuspecting english woman while she's unable to refuse (have to read it to find out that one out :)) The rest of the book explores their growning attraction, her acceptance into the clan and of course, the enemies counter revenge.

So what makes this better than The Wedding? Simple, its the humor. Sands has a gift when it comes to making a historical funny. I laughed many times reading this one. The characters are excellent. Galen is perfect (who knew I could love a red-haired hero!!). He's kind and loving and very patient with Kyla. He understands that he forced her into this marriage and plans to make it up to her. The love scenes are *REALLY* steamy and hot, as in ala Kleypas/Jefferies books for camparison.

Get this book. Great characters, very good plot, just enough drama and plenty of good lovin'.

If you liked this genre, I would also recommend:
For Humor....
Sands- The Key, Bliss & What She Wants (can't recommend The Deed - I don't like dumb heroines)

More Dramatic...
Garwood- The Bride & its sequel The Wedding, The Secret and its sequel Ransom
Paula Quinn- The Lord of Temptation and The Lord of Seduction

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this madness or love?, 6 Feb. 2002

Well, Lynsay is back with another delightful tell. After her brother's nearly fatal wounding, she flees the hills of her Highlands and finds herself captured by a well-muscled Scotsmen.
Little did she know the Scotsman was bent on revenge. Laird Galen MacDonald's wife was murdered nine months beforet by his enemy, Laird MacGregor. When Galen learns that the MacGregor plans to take an English woman as a bride, he decides to get his revenge by stealing her and marrying her himself.
Lynsay's character is no weak-willed miss, and while thrilled she is saved from having to marry the MacGregor, she plans a little revenge of her!
Lynsay proves once again she is a writer that delivers!

I genuinely loved this story, the characters are likeable and relatable, even if the rate that they fall in love is very quick! The story was funny, at a good pace and kept me guessing! Loved it!

Well written and humerous with a heroine who's not just going to sit down and be saved despite the time period. :-)
