And still she would deny him.
I juve why the terms nice guy and beta male get conflated so often. Velvet Song Unabridged Jude Deveraux. Miles, however, redeems himself wonderfully in Velvet Angeland his romance with Elizabeth Chatworth is fabulous. Miles was my least favorite Montgomery brother in the earlier books because of his penchant to, uh, sleep around.
After reading book 1, my opinion of Stephen is somewhat like Gavin since he is a warrior. My velvett have changed deverauc much through the years–who knows what I’d think if I read this series now. This heroine was unusually given the title of Laird, her father choosing her to be head of their clan rather than her brother, which made said brother feel salty towards her. This was a very fun read.
It’s about Scots against Englishmen, and Bronwyn’s hatred for them all. He worked his butt off to get the approval of the men in Bronwyn’s clan and had to fight that creepy Roger Chatworth for her hand in marriage, even though they were already betrothed. She must marry her enemy, so it’s no surprise she’s hardly jumping for jkde at meeting her husband to be Aug 07, Yen-Tzu rated it did not like it Shelves: Once Stephen and Brownyn were separated highlahd her clan, the love story began and they really got to know each other, then Brownyn became a likable character.
Heck, he even changed his last name so that her MacArran family name wouldn’t die out. She, being practically a nun, and internalizing all the shame as was appropriate to the time threw herself out of a window to her death.
Overall, I liked this one better than the first book: Feb 26, Petra rated it liked it Shelves: Stephen is four deverahx late for his wedding and he never sent a word, all the while Roger Chatworth is snaking his way into the MacArran lands.

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. She became his reason to live, his reason to love. It would have made Bronwyn’s impulsiveness and know-all attitude more palatable. May 04, Pton rated it really liked it. Her action is understandable when it is seen the Scots way but bu not understandable in a husband’s way especially since Stephen cares about her a lot.
Unfortunately, her scenes are limited. Regardless of being boss, homegirl still was at the mercy of the English, so she had highlanx resign herself to an arranged marriage.
I expect him to be an insensitive jerk and all but it turns out that he is not, which is great. Thanks Camaro for re-reading with me!!
He really made an effort for Bronwyn to respect him by being a Scot — wearing their clothes, training like them, talking like them, and even thinking like them. Then what was the point you were trying to drive home for the entire first half of the n I usually love her books but I found myself devraux with the characters in this novel.
Also, the same as book one, the ending is rushed The narrator does a fantastic job and it was very easy to listen to. 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 highlxnd hearts and minds of her clansmen — and to prevent them from stabbing him in sullen resentment of his uppity English ways.
But while clan fought clan, while brother took up sword against brother and the highlands ran with blood – their destiny was made Unhappy with his bride’s “coy” behaviour, he realises she needs to be chastised — Shades-of-Grey lite style. Ms Deveraux isn’t really one of my fave authors, but I just read this in response to a reading challenge.
Highland Velvet (Unabridged)
He hauls her over his lap and spanks her because only naughty girls say no. It was refreshing to see a H take on a new way of life for once. Quartet comprised of in order: As he falls hopelessly in love with this fiery Scot he tries with every fiber of his being to win her respect, and highlqnd love. While many of Deveraux’s heroes in the Velvet Series had their bad moments, ujde Gavin, and to a lesser extent Miles and Raine, in “Highland Velvet” Stephen Montgomery was the stuff girlish dreams are made of.
