Review for Highland Velvet
Author: Jude Deveraux

Reviewer Comments:

Here is the story of the second brother of the Montgomery. From the earlier book, 'The Velvet Promise', we know that Stephen has been delayed in his wedding and in 'Highland Velvet', we see Stephen heading to Scotland to wed the woman his king has arranged.

Like his elder brother, Stephen has not entered into marriage willingly. He has never met Bronwyn, a woman he believes to be extremely ugly. Worse, Bronwyn hates the English, her father and men have been killed by the English and she is the laird of her people. It turns that his new wife is a very beautiful woman and Stephen falls for his bride despite her hatred.

Stephen learns about the Scots' way of living during his stay there. He tries to adapt and later begins to appreciate their ways and even sees himself as one of them. Bronwyn on the other hand denies giving her heart to the man she cannot resist. The heavy responsibility on her role as the laird, the fact of her father's and men's death has made her cautious and her pride has stood in the way to admit the growing importance of Stephen in both her heart and life.

Unlike the earlier book, 'Highland Velvet' has less deaths, hence less depressing but Gavin and Judith (the hero and heroine in 'The Velvet Promise') have been through more before they finally admit and accept their feelings and the love from the other. For this reason alone, I prefer the preceeding story but do not let this stop you from getting this book. I'm glad to have discovered the Velvet series.

Reviewer Comments:

I give it a low sensuality rating only because she had this whole thing with the woman's knees that annoyed me, and it might have been more of a joke, but it wasn't played very well as a joke if that's what it was supposed to be. Minor point, but I bothered me. Also, though I think the characters had good chemistry, I didn't feel like they were very sensual as a whole. Otherwise, I liked the female character. Very strong, which is an absolute must for me. The male character is a little harder to get into, though. Overall, the book was very good, but I wish she had made it longer and filled out some of the other characters and stories. There was a sideline romance that either needed to be dropped or expanded, I thought. The conflict between the two clans was too easily resolved though, considering that there was bloodshed between them. Overall, the book was an interesting read and had few slow points.
