Overview

The Bowie Bride by Suzan Tisdale

Alec Bowie never wanted a wife. He never wanted a hearth and home. And he most assuredly never wanted to be chief of his clan. But much to his vexation, he finds himself in possession of all three.
His desire for peace and to protect his clan are stronger than his desire to remain free and untethered. He agrees to the marriage in the hopes his wife will bed him only long enough get with child then leave him the bloody hell alone.

Leona MacDowall -- or Leona 'Odd Eyes', Leona the Witch, or Leona 'The Devil's Spawn' depending on to whom you speak -- is all too happy to volunteer to marry the Bowie Chief. Though the clan Bowie's reputation as murderers and thieves precedes them, she believes life with Alec more palatable than living the rest of her life untouched, unmarried, and under the hateful rule of her spiteful father.

But nothing turns out the way they expect. Alec doesn't know if he can keep to his original plan of leaving his wife alone after he gets her with child. Leona is beginning to suspect she might not get the happy home she's always wanted. And worst of all, someone's set on murdering Leona -- and might just succeed before anyone's dreams can come true.

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author, storyteller and cheeky wench, SUZAN TISDALE lives in the Midwest with her verra handsome carpenter husband. All but one of her children have left the nest. Her pets consist of dust bunnies and a dozen poodle-sized, backyard-dwelling groundhogs – all of which run as free and unrestrained as the voices in her head. And she doesn’t own a single pair of yoga pants, much to the shock and horror of her fellow authors. She prefers to write in her pajamas.

Suzan writes Scottish historical romance/fiction, with honorable and perfectly imperfect heroes and strong, feisty heroines. And bad guys she kills off in delightfully wicked ways.

She published her first novel, Laiden’s Daughter, in December, 2011, as a gift for her mother. That one book started a journey which has led to fifteen published titles, with two more being released in the spring of 2017. To date, she has sold more than 350,000 copies of her books around the world. They have been translated into four foreign languages (Italian, French, German, and Spanish.)

You will find her books in digital, paperback, and audiobook formats.

I love suzan Tisdale's books. She knows just how to draw you into a bad ok and keep you turning the pages to see where the story goes. She writes great complex characters and very witty dialogue. The secondary characters are loveable as the main characters. Alec Bowie wants nothing but peace for his clan and he's convinced that he needs to marry to form an alliance with the Mackintoshesmand McLarens. Leona Macdowall thought to be a witch with strange eyes volunteers to wed the Bowie. Never thinking it happen but always dreamed of marriage and children of her own sees this as her only hope. They strike up a bargain of trust and mutual respect but never a love match. They begin their life together but bargains are hard to stand behind when you start to have feelings for each other. There are twists and turns that I did not see happening. You will laugh and cry and at times want to smack Alec Bowie for being so bullheaded. The only thing that I found fault with the book was it was a bit slow in the middle but once passed that I could not put it down. I can't wait to read the next book.

Suzan Tisdale doesn’t disappoint! The author has the unique ability to transport you to Scotland’s wild Highlands and make you never want to leave. Alec, Leona, and all the support characters weave their way into your heart and refuse to let go. From the moment the story begins until the very end, you are swept away. The villainous element to this story is extremely well done and will have you turning pages to find out who has it in for the lovely Leona. I would definitely recommend this book!
