I really didn't like the heroine at the beginning of the book, she was filled with too much animosity towards Stephen- almost too strong and noble. Once Stephen and Brownyn were separated from her clan, the love story began and they really got to know each other, then Brownyn became a likable character.
Very similar in style to the previous books in the series. Not quite as good as the first 2, but still very good. I probably will take a break and then go back to Velvet Song and Velvet Angel to hopefully make it fresh again. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

Preview — Highland Velvet by Jude Deveraux. Bronwyn MacArran was a proud Scot. Stephen Montgomery was one of the hated English. He came to Scotland as a conqueror, saw her beauty and was vanquished. But still she would abhor him. She owned a temper hot enough to forge the armors of battle or inflame a valiant soldier's passion.
Yet still she would resist him. She became his reason to live, his reason to love. And still she would deny him. But while clan fought clan, while brother took up sword against brother, and the highlands ran with blood -- their destiny was made Get A Copy.

The heroine is the laird of her Scottish clan. In a brilliant bid to improve cross-border relations, King Henry of England has kidnapped the heroine and is forcing her to marry one of his subjects. We might debate the effectiveness of sanctions, but there's no doubt that the art of diplomacy has definitely improved over the years. So our heroine who's the Medieval version of Princess Di I've read a quarter of this book and I shall go no further.
So our heroine who's the Medieval version of Princess Di -- only with a Scottish accent tries to hold a discussion with her future husband on how he should behave, when he moves in with her, in order to win the hearts and minds of her clansmen -- and to prevent them from stabbing him in sullen resentment of his uppity English ways.
Only he's too distracted by her breasts peeking out from the top of her low-cut dress to pay any attention to her inane chatter. Why can't the woman just shut up so he can eye fuck her breasts in blessed silence? When she reveals that he should take her clan name once they're married because this demonstrates the necessary respect for her people and is good diplomacy, he refuses unequivocally.
Because taking her name and employing common sense will emasculate him. He's a man -- hear him ROAR. On their wedding night, our heroine quite understandably does not want to sex it up with our intrepid hero. He insists. Romance books like to call this reluctance, whereas courts of law prefer the term rape. In self defence, our heroine orders her dog to defend her self. Not content with sexually assaulting our heroine, our hero physically assaults her dog.
He punches it in the face. But our hero feels no remorse for animal abuse because once again he's transfixed by the magnificence of our heroine's stupendous breasts. Those are some powerful boobs. Unhappy with his bride's "coy" behaviour, he realises she needs to be chastised -- Shades-of-Grey lite style.
He hauls her over his lap and spanks her because only naughty girls say no. And I'm done. Because if I carry on reading I'll be tempted to burn my bras in protest and good underwear is really expensive nowadays. View all 21 comments.

I enjoyed book 2 in the Velvet saga a lot more than the first one — likable English alpha male hero, feisty yet vulnerable Scottish heroine, and an engaging, attention-grabbing story set in the beautiful Highlands. They literally come to bl 4 stars!!
They literally come to blows when they first meet and begrudgingly marry, neither giving in an inch. In historical times, men were always considered superior to women so it really humbled me to see Stephen making efforts to understand and know Bronwyn and her Scottish ways. Thanks Camaro for re-reading with me!! View all 30 comments. She's a cranky little thing I really enjoyed this audio and the step back in time it gave me. I remember Stephen Montgomery as my first love.
Every man I met was compared to him. Sure, I didn't meet a lot of English men who became Scottish and wore a kilt, but I wanted a man to love me fiercely. Stephen loved Bronwyn Bronwyn is fierce and determined. It's hard to be a woman and Laird of your clan.
The bloody English have caused pain and heartache for her people She's a cranky little thing The bloody English have caused pain and heartache for her people. Bronwyn is sickened to learn that the English king wants an English man of his choosing by her side as a husband. She must marry her enemy, so it's no surprise she's hardly jumping for joy at meeting her husband to be Historical romances have changed a lot over the years.
We expect it to be true to the time My acceptance of accuracy over romantic fairytales has changed my expectations. I think this was definitely closer to historically accurate than fairytales. The narrator does a fantastic job and it was very easy to listen to. View all 4 comments. Forced into marriage to the English nobleman Stephen Montgomery, Scotswoman Brenna MacArran, the leader of her clan, vows to make his life miserable.
While many of Deveraux's heroes in the Velvet Series had their bad moments, particularly Gavin, and to a lesser extent Miles and Raine, in "Highland Velvet" Stephen Montgomery was the stuff girlish dreams are made of. Stephen was kind and loving to his sister-in-law, Judith, always taking her side whenever Gavin preferred his evil mistress.

Cancel anytime. With her father murdered and her home burned, lovely Alyx Blackelt fled to the woods - and sanctuary in the camp of Raine Montgomery, a nobleman outlawed by the king's edict. There she hid her beauty in the guise of a boy and her sorrow in her work as Montgomery's squire. But how long could such loveliness as hers be hidden? How long could such a gallant man's desires be blind?
