She’s promptly kidnapped by the MacHugh clan and delivered to her father. Trivia About Bride of the MacHugh.

Bride of the MacHugh « Jan Cox Speas

I loved the jingling bracelets. The H was on the beta side of life but still had enough alpha to be considered studly IMO. Finally found a copy and reread this book. I’m really torn on this one, as I usually love historicals with more history and less romance, but for some reason this book didn’t fully deliver for me.

When her mother extracts a promise while on her deathbed that Elspeth will go to Scotland to put herself under the protection of her Campbell family, she feels honor bound to hold up that vow.

There is much swashbuckling, adventures, battles, more kidnappings, and villainous brise including a witchy OW who stabs them both in the back. 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 machugn have. oof

It adds realism to the book and a gravity to the characters actions. That would have really been fun! I read this book when I was in high school in the 70’sand re-read it at least a dozen times!!!

All of this rich Scottish history is brought into the story in a very natural way. Jan 16, Adrianna rated it liked it. I really did enjoy the history lesson even if I wasn’t as crazy about the two leads.

But he still has those pesky, rebellious highlanders to contend with. They didn’t have it at the library, and the reviews were good, so I took a chance on a used copy from Amazon.

Bride of the MacHugh — All About Romance

I almost DNF this book with only a hundred pages left to its conclusion. There, she is kidnapped by one of those rebellious factions, the MacHugh clan, as they suspect her of being a spy for her kinsman, the reviled Earl of Argyll, who is bent on machjgh the rebellious Highland clans for his King. The first twenty pages in as the heroine is being kidnapped by who Machufh thought was the hero I was so excited! I’ve been digging the Highlander novels lately, and I came across this old one from the 50’s.

It does nothing for me, what else can I say?

It seemed about years off. I think also that I just finished up a book that harped on feminism and was really in a GIRL POWER mood and a bodice ripper is really not something to pick up when you’re in that frame of mind.

And here’s something that really puzzled me: Books are better when you don’t hate the protagonists. The maachugh is just really well done.


But Jan is such a great writer no matter and the story itself is machugg, although there was a lot of Highlandish politics in there that sometimes got me confused, it was a magnificent book overall. I wanted to smack their silly grins off their faces nearly every other page, it was so annoying.

Nov 11, Naksed rated it liked it Shelves: There really was too much history and politics for my taste, but I also believe that what is written in the pages of this book was meant to be just this way. This is a couple that not only lusts and loves but they understand each other with a look, they touch each other without physical contact.

Jun 08, Dorcas marked it as did-not-finish Shelves: Sparks fly between these two, but their disagreements never disintegrate into the kind of petty meanness that wounds. Yes, there are some twists and turns along the way. If you want a book about the ultimate alpha hero, this is the book for you.

I wanted bad things to happen to the h and H; arrogant, sanctimonious twits!
