When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again.

Publisher's Summary

In this splendid New York Times best-seller, Julie Garwood brilliantly crafts the majestic story of a young Englishwoman determined to fight for her freedom...a woman whose life would be transformed by the rare, unexpected gift of love.

When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

At first Johanna was shy, but as Gabriel tenderly revealed the splendid pleasures they would share, she came to suspect that she was falling in love with her gruff new husband. And it was soon apparent to the entire Highlands clan that their brusque, gallant laird had surrendered his heart completely. But now a desperate royal intrigue threatened to tear her from his side - and to destroy the man whose love meant more to her than she had ever dreamed!

    Story
    "Beautifully Written Highland Tale"

    This story is beautifully written and the characters are so real to life. This is a highland story that has a backdrop of domestic violence. It may not seem unusual to read of domestic violence in highland historical romances but most stories just show it as common place. This book shows how Johanna deals with the abuse and handles it. Of course there is more to the story as it wouldn't be a highland story without the romance. There are many poignant moments that had me upset or mad but there were just as many times I smiled. It is more of a sweet tender highland story rather than a highland battle adventure. Its worth listening to.

    Also, Rosalyn Landor was excellent as usual!!

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Inspired a wide variety of emotions....ENJOYABLE!"

    This book inspired a wide range of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I was angry, and I felt sympathy. It was a good listen. Great narration.

    Story
    "WOW... WHAT A JOURNEY, A PERFECT HIGHLAND ROMANCE"

    Now hold on and bare with me 'cause I'm about to gush here and probably say love and loved quite a few times - so apologies in advance.

    I just love Julie Garwood's books, and this one especially as it's filled with such a rich array of strong, loveable, quirky and funny characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Then I love the way Johanna & Gabriel's (I definitely loved him) characters evolved as they grew closer together and they learn from and with each other as their love story unfolds. I also love the way JG writes - painting each scene for us to soak up and mentally visualise the clothes, the culture, the Castle, the Warriors, the fighting, the love scenes and all the other touching, tender, violent, funny and sad events contained within these precious hours of listening. I love her story which blends heartache, violence, lust, love, betrayal and a host of other emotions making it a (Highland) Historical romance lovers perfect listen.

    Finally, I love Rosalyn Landor's narration as she not only breathes life into every character, successfully tackles the difficult task of dialects but she also puts just the right feelings that's needed whether it be anger, sorrow, pain, lust, happiness or love and so, as each chapter is revealed, it captures the great synergy between author and narrator that I wish all books would have.

    Worth a credit? I think you may have got the impression that I loved it - so that my friends is a OH AYE twas a bonny wee book and an offa gid listen.

    Julie Garwood can have you laughing,crying or both. The bowl throwing in this one was a real hoot. The author has a wonderful sense of humor. I didn't want this one to end.

    The Secret and The Bride are both wonderful Highland romances as well.

    "Story of survival love and tenacity"

    I own every written word of Julie Garwood and for her historical romance this is the fist one I ever read actually this was her first novel I read and she had me hooked on the prologue when she said that basically this was a story about a woman who did not believe she was inferior.
