    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    CAROLYN says: "MEDIEVAL HIGHLAND ROMANCE AT IT'S BEST"

    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. This is my favorite Garwood book. I was really happy to see it available in audio, but Duerden's gravelly voiced, whispery narration totally spoiled it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could write to someone in charge of selecting narrators and tell them to stop using Susan Duerden. Her narration of men's voices gets worse with each recording and really spoils a good audio book.
