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.

I came upon this series in reverse, having read the 3rd book first and the first book 2nd...but as confusing as that description is, I enjoyed this book the most.
Narrators voice has a breath a quality that great on your nerves, especially for some characters.
Story had endearing qualities but a little long-winded at times.
loved it. would recommend it to anyone who loves Highland love stories. Great great book.
I love this book have read it too many times to count and now have listened to if not the same amount pretty darn close I love everything about it and I love Julie Garwood she is a wonderful writer. The narrator is amazing she really brings the story alive.
Say something about yourself!
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.
Love the book, I love all of Julie Garwood books, I would love for her to write a story about Ramsey and his life. I have read this book about 10 times and listen to it about 6 times. I never get tired of this story. Anyone who live romance book this is a must listen to story.
