Overview

More cherished than gold are the Jewels of Kinfairlie, and only the worthiest may fight for their love...The Laird of Kinfairlie has unmarried sisters, each a gem in her own right. And he has no choice but to see them all wed in haste.

Like a heroine in an ancient tale, Vivienne waited in the highest chamber of Kinfairlie’s tower for her fated lover. In the darkness he came for her, cloaked and hooded so that she would not see his face. He loved her sweetly, thoroughly...and Vivienne knew she had met her destiny.

But in the morning light, her dream is shattered. Erik Sinclair of Blackleith is no romantic hero but a disinherited warrior who arranged her abduction to regain his own legacy. Outraged by Erik’s insistence that he needs her solely to beget a son, yet ensnared by the passion he awakens, Vivienne realizes that there is more merit in her taciturn spouse than he would admit. Erik is skeptical of her growing faith in his honor and her desire to recapture his stolen birthright...

Little does he suspect that his rare gem of a bride intends to capture his barricaded heart as well.

This edition includes excerpts from THE SNOW WHITE BRIDE and THE LAST HIGHLANDER.

    Started off well...

    But about a quarter of the way thru it got kind of stupid. It felt like the author went off on tangents about Darg, Tyan's relationship with Rosamunde and the dude who met up with the couple and helped then reach Eriks home. Speaking of Erik he was so indecisive, one minute he wanted her and the next he was abandoning her. Erik i found as a strange leading man, not sure what attracted him to our leading lady...certainly wasnt his stunning personality or his good looks. Compared to the first book i found this one lacking. I hope the next one is a little better! Would i recommend this book to a friend: NO but once i started it i felt obligated to finish it since it wasnt free. Hope this review has helped someone make up their mind about purchasung it, if you feel the need go borrow it from the library!

    Unputdownable

    In 1421 Scotland, Alexander, Laird of Kinfairlie, feels euphoric about his marriage auction that worked so well in spite of the objection of the bride, Madeline the oldest of his sisters. Alexander blithely ignores all that went wrong as he keeps thinking all¿s well that ends well as Madeline, who previously refused to marry, is happily wedded to Rhys Fitzhenry................... The successful brotherly matchmaker turns to Vivienne though Alexander plans to improve the process since the Madeline caper (see THE BEAUTY BRIDE). He thinks he found the solution when Nicholas Sinclair, the man who broke Vivienne¿s heart years ago, arrives to court his beloved as he can offer a home since his older brother Erik has been disowned. Nicholas insists he bed her in her tower where she awaits his return so that she has no choice but to marry as he needs a bride and heir rather quickly to deflect any estate challenges. Rationalizing he needs the coins for the other sisters, Alexander agrees. Vivienne and her beau enjoy the night together until morning light reveals cynical Erik as her mate and he insists she will begat him a legitimate heir................. Though similar in design to the first Kinfairlie medieval romance, THE ROSE RED BRIDE has a flavor of its own because Vivienne and Madeline have different personalities. The story line is fun due to Erik¿s denials that he loves her while vivacious Vivienne believes they were destined together, but rejects his cold insistence that she is an heir breeder. Fans will enjoy Alexander¿s latest matrimonial fiasco and look forward to the next jewel Snow White in the fall...................... Harriet Klausner

    Great book 2

    I enjoyed Erik and Vivienne's story. Even though it was quite sad at times, Vivienne's promise to help Erik, whether he believed the truth behind her actions or not, was very sweet. Both could feel a passion between them even though it may have taken time to admit it.

    Wondeful!

    This is a great story of heros and heroines! I loved it. I like how her books dont prance around and make the characters seem stupid about love and how to show it. They just commit to it and get on with the story.
