It does nothing for me, what else can I say? Loved this back in the day! Elliott and Robert Frost. Jul 02, Duchess Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: The balance between the romance and the multiple skirmishes and goings on around MacHugh and Elspeth was not actually balanced at all.
But in spite of the cliche elements but then, this book was written in the mids and probably started the clichesthe novel is a good historical, fast-paced, full of action hride interesting characters.

I actually tend to like the historical novels Have read and reread this book. I have read literally thousands of books but remember very few fhe I remember this one! Her uncle, the powerful Archibald Campbell, Earl of Argyll, has plans to marry her off to a rich, titled man. There seems to be a certain stereotype with Scottish heros. I don’t regret reading this at all.
Or why he held a grudge against both Elspeth’s father and Alex, other than he resented their alliance with the MacDonald? It plodded along but in an interesting manner. My single complaint is the pacing is a tiny bit slow in spots but overall it’s a wonderful reading experience.

Bride of the MacHugh
Scotland, warrior hero, atmosphere, intrigue, what’s not to love, right? But along the way, she discovers she likes the Scots and the wilds of the Highlands—and she likes the MacHugh. I really did macjugh the history lesson even if I wasn’t as crazy about the two leads.
