Highland Weddings #1
Gayle Callen
Releasing Oct 27th, 2015
Avon Romance
The first in a wonderfully engaging series set in the Scottish Highlands, USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen creates an unforgettable story of mistaken identity and irresistible attraction.
Shaken from sleep during the night, bundled off to the Highlands by a burly Scot, Riona is at first terrified, then livid. Hugh McCallum insists they were promised to each other as children to ensure peace between their clans. The stubborn laird refuses to believe he’s kidnapped the wrong Catriona Duff. Instead, he embarks on a campaign of slow-burning seduction…
At first, Hugh cares only what their marriage can do for his people. Now he’s starting to crave Riona for her own sake. But her true identity jeopardizes his clan’s contract. And unless she
chooses to risk all to be his bride, he’ll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he’s fought so hard to save-the passionate marriage they could have together.

 Review of The Wrong Bride
Review (3.75 Stars): The Wrong Bride was a great historical romance that showed that even the biggest mistake can lead to a wonderful happy ending.  Riona finds herself kidnapped out of her bed in the middle of the night by Hugh, who believes that she is his bride to be, and soon discovers that he has taken the wrong woman.  Hugh is determined to save his clan and this arranged marriage was supposed to bring two great families together but he never expected to fall in love with this beautiful young woman. Now he must find a way to save his clan and keep Riona by his side.


Riona was such a spitfire of a character and I liked her from the very beginning.  I can’t imagine how frightened she was when Hugh grabbed her from her bed in the middle of the night.  I know Hugh was just trying to save his clan and fulfill the promise that was made to his family when he was a young child and I’m glad that Riona forgave him for this. He redeemed himself over the course of the book and I’m glad that a single mistake became the best thing that ever happened to them.


This is the first book in the Highland Wedding series and I think that this series is off to a great start.  Looking forward to seeing what is next for this talented author.
