The Wrong Bride by Gayle Callen

Monday, October 12, 2015

USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen creates an unforgettable story of mistaken identity and irresistible attraction in this first in a wonderfully engaging series set in the Scottish Highlands...

Shaken from sleep during the night and bundled off to the Highlands by a burly Scot, Riona is at first terrified, then livid. Hugh McCallum insists they were promised to each other as children to ensure peace between their clans. The stubborn laird refuses to believe he's kidnapped the wrong Catriona Duff. Instead, he embarks on a campaign of slow-burning seduction.

At first, Hugh cares only what their marriage can do for his people. Now he's starting to crave Riona for her own sake, but her true identity jeopardizes his clan's contract. And unless she chooses to risk all to be his bride, he'll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he's fought so hard to save—the passionate marriage they could have together.

Goodreads Summary

When I told my sister about this book she joked that she wouldn't tell a handsome guy who woke her up and stole her off into the night that she was the wrong girl.  Riona, however, isn't too happy about the situation.  Despite numerous attempts to correct Hugh, he insists that he has kidnapped his fiance.  In the beginning of the book, he needs her for reasons concerning his clan, but at towards the end of the book he might just love her.

I liked how the author developed their romance a little slower than you would typically see in a romance book.  Riona was fiery and fun and easy to root for.  I liked how she gave Hugh trouble at every turn.  Hugh's scenes ranged from funny to very sexy.  He is cocky, handsome, and charismatic.  The author has a way of injecting humor into a lot of the scenes and her well-written love scenes are very passionate.  Overall, this book is recommended to adult readers or fans of romance.
