Lady Tara Davidson has always wished to marry for love and
pines for a man that truly appreciates her mind and not
just her beauty. While fate might have spared her from one
arranged marriage, it does not seem that she will be able
to avoid being trapped into marrying the Laird of the Black
Campbells. In order to keep her family from financial
ruin, she agrees to marry Breccan Campbell but makes sure
it is on her terms and has no issue with spelling them out
to him. She challenges her new husband at every
opportunity but soon realizes that there is so much more to
life and love than she originally imagined.
The pressure is on for Breccan Campbell to provide an heir
to the clan. Dubbed the "Beast of Aberfeldy," he knows
that taking the head strong beauty for his bride will
certainly improve his odds of the clan's reputation...and
maybe just change how others view him. Quite smitten with
Tara since the first time he saw her, Breccan simply cannot
pass up the tempting opportunity Tara's father's gambling
has placed at his feet. He knows that Tara is headstrong
and when he catches her trying to flee prior to the
ceremony he knows she will test his patience to the limit.
His obsession with her compels him to not call off the
wedding but Tara's actions repeatedly challenge his well
laid out plans. She stubbornly agrees to give him a few
heirs before retreating to a lifestyle she finds more
fitting to her station; leaving Breccan no choice but to
try to truly win her heart before she leaves with him with
a broken one.
THE BRIDE SAYS MAYBE will find a special place in the
hearts of many readers and I look definitely be reading the
other installments in The Brides of Wishmore Series.
installment is book two in the series, holds it's own as a
stand alone read but the story does tie in closely to the
first book, The Bride Says No. Cathy Maxwell spins a tale
of love, set beautifully in Scotland, and delivers a couple
that you can root for as they deal with their own
insecurities and opinions of those around them. The
secondary characters are a joy and infuse a lot of humorous
moments in the book. Breccan is certainly a keeper and
this story will certainly refresh your memory of what it
was like to truly fall in love.
She'd once been the toast of London, but now scandal has
brought her down. Still, pretty, petted Lady Tara Davidson
can't believe her new fate. She had wanted to marry for love
. . . but her profligate father has promised her hand to
none other than Breccan Campbell, the "Beast of Aberfeldy"
and laird of the valley's most despised clan! Well, Tara may
have to marry him, but Breccan can't make her love himâ€”can
What happens when the groom insists?
Breccan Campbell is nobody's fool. He knows that Tara is
trouble. Yet he's determined to reform the Campbell name
even if it means forging an alliance with the arrogant
beauty. There's no doubt that Tara is a challenge, and
Breccan loves nothing more. For he's vowed to thoroughly
seduce Taraâ€”and make her his in more than name alone.
