The Night Before The Wedding by Debra Mullins

This could have been such a good story. The set up had such cool elements - beautiful red-headed woman, dashing highlander, a curse, visions of love. Unfortunately there are one too many things that sabotage the story - The hero & heroine are at each other's throats throughout most of the story, 300 pages in the hero still appears to be in love with his former love, the heroine is abducted and carried off to Scotland and endures the glares and barbs of the townspeople who blame her hesitating to marry the hero(a perfect stranger) - if she doesn't marry the hero, the curse will not be broken and poverty, famine, & death will prevail upon the community. Yep, this story was def not a fav.
