The writing is just really well done. I’ve never read a more powerful male hero mchugh this book. Some of it I’ve been digging the Highlander novels lately, and I came across this old one from the 50’s.

An emphasis on the male characters and their political as well as physical battles.

The romance was wonderful, what thhe was of it. Jul 11, Jeri rated it it was amazing. He seemed really wishy-washy for most of the story, and he expected a wee bit much from his paramour. There’s an attempt to loop Elspeth into the conspiracy but it’s really boring. Every time I have to interpret what the supposedly, sexy Scott said, it pulls me right out tje the story and makes me want to toss the book against the wall.

Most of them rarely show the men in tights, and where did all these leather pants come from? I think Elspeth should have slapped him more, and I definitely think she should have used her riding crop on him.

Quotes from Bride of the MacHugh. Elsepth and Alexander are entirely likable and believable, and even though he seems bigger than life, she is assuredly his match.

But I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. There wasn’t much face to face time between these two prideful lovebirds.

Sep 06, Mary rated it liked it Recommends it for: The characters act according to their time and their own character. But along the way, she discovers she likes the Scots and the wilds of the Highlands—and she likes the MacHugh. Loved this back in the day! Before I start my review, I have to admit something.

I am, however, glad that I stuck it out. Turned out to be the wrong choice for me. But it is the proud and infamous Alex MacHugh who holds her reluctant interest. Oct 11, Faeriefolk15 rated it it was amazing. There is also a hero or two to swoon over, a spunky heroine with a mind of her own, an evil greedy villain and plenty of supporting characters. Romance and historical fiction are not usually my genres, but this one is one of my favorites. The edition I read was published inavailable used.

The love story played out against this background is one of substance and is beautifully written and in addition there are some truly lovely lyrical passages. It’s time for this book to be republished. Alexander MacHugh was head of one of Scotland’s mightiest clans when the rebellious Highlanders rallied around the MacDonald banner.

This is an oldie but a goodie.


Bride of the MacHugh — All About Romance

Like another reviewer mentioned, it’s more historical than historical romance. All the elements were certainly in place for a five star book: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. European Historical Romance Review Tags: The hero turns out to be someone else and I just did not find his playboy, everyone-loves-respects-admires-him persona as endearing as I probably should have.

But that doesn’t take away from the a She is a spectacular author.

I am going to ramble like machufh loony bin in this review. The characters are compelling, the action suspenseful and the anxiety as to whether Elspeth will end up with the MacHugh will have you turning pages late into the night.

Jul 14, Sherron rated it it was amazing Shelves: For the era that it is written, it’s one of the best I’ve read. I’m not including the picture of the Sourcebooks edition because it’s too tawdry and misleading. First, I love the way the two lovers stare at each other with such a deep, intense focus.

Her ship is blown off course, and the MacHughs arrive to escort her to her Campbell relative.

I am thrilled to have found it once again after 60 years. Mar 21, Regan Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: I actually have 2 copies!
