Publisher's Summary

Overflowing with all of the majesty and intrigue of medieval glory days, this magnificent New York Times best seller is a captivating story of passion and loyalty, justice and honor. Beloved storyteller Julie Garwood steps back to the silver-shrouded Highlands of her classic tale The Secret - and hails the return of two unforgettable warriors: Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan.

In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionhearted, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. One victim of the scourge is innocent Gillian, who is a mere child when the cruel and ambitious Baron Alford slaughters her father and tears her family apart. Alford, determined to recover a jeweled box for the despotic King John, is furious when the precious treasure slips through his fingers - only to be lost for more than a decade.

Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan. With the cunning and courage of the daring Scotsmen, and with the friendship of a new ally, Bridgid KirkConnell, Gillian at last fights the unscrupulous Baron Alford, laying claim to her home, her family, and her father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warriors, Gillian and Bridgid discover that desire can be a weapon of conquest...betrayal can slay trust in a heartbeat...and the greatest risk of all is surrender - to the deep emotions of unexpected love.

    "Good series"

    I did like this book and the main couple. There was lots of laugh out loud moments and it was never boring. Spoiler One con: I didn't like Ramsey inviting someone to his room. That ruined his love story for me.

    "Mediocre story not saved by narration"

    It's hard to say whether the story or narration is what turned me off this book. I did manage to finish the entire story, but only after putting it down multiple times. I found the main female character foolish and obsessed with whispering. I found the narrator's choice of scratchy voices for most of the highlanders off putting. The addition of laughter was also more annoying than endearing. It just didn't come together for me at all.

    "More Than A 5 Star Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ransom to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version and I am so glad I didn't. The audio version is so outstanding.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

    Her voice for the children. In this book it was exceptional.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must listen/read. Ms. Garwood's first installment, "The Secret" was great but this story is even better. The action from the beginning grabs you and makes you want to continue to listen. I wanted to listen to the end without sleep. Gillian was great.

    "Great Writer"

    Ms Garwood, is a wonderful story teller. Her attention to detail brings her stories to life. The thing I treasure most about her stories is that she finishes what she starts and leaves no story line unfinished. Great listen!!!

    Story
    "A little bit of a let down..."
    What disappointed you about Ransom?

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series and this book started out well enough, but honestly, by the end I was just getting impatient for it to be done. I can't exactly put my finger on what I didn't like other than how repetitive some things were. I got tired of all the whispers, especially the narrators actual whispers, I found them really irritating. Aside from that, I've enjoyed Julie Garwood's novels in the past, but I feel like they're just basically the same story retold with slightly different twists at this point. I love highlander stories and enjoy these alpha makes having some woman they considered weak stand up to them, but in this, she only sort of stands up to him and pushovers are annoying to me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julie Garwood again?

    Yes. I've enjoyed her books in the past and this wasn't a bad book, it just wasn't as good as I'd hoped for. I'll take a break and then probably give a different one a try.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Duerden?

    I'm not sure. I don't think so. All of the English male voices she did sounded really stupid/annoying to me, as well as some of the highlanders. The whispers and fake laughs were another source of annoyance for me too, so I'll probably avoid her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ransom?

    As I've already said, the whispers! I mean, I don't know anyone who whispers that much and it would get real old real fast if I did. I know that's not a scene, but I'd cut down on them. I never knew that was a pet peeve of mine until this book.

    "good read"

    I loved this story. just when you think one portion is going to be the end another portion starts up and it adds new life in the story. I wasn't sure how the ending would possibly turn out but it ended very well.

    Story
    "Wow & wow. "

    This is probably my 2nd favorite book. My 1st is another Julie Garwood book. You can't go wrong with her stories when you want a little romance and a list mystery. She will make you laugh, cry, and ponder. Her characters are great wether good or had. She leaves you satisfied with the endings of her book . and if your like me, you will want to read them over & over again.
