New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood captures the Highland splendor of medieval Scotland in this breathtaking love story. The inspiration for her acclaimed bestseller Ransom, this classic tale is a passionate masterpiece from one of the best-loved storytellers of all time.
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.
In a spirited clash of wills and customs, Judith reveled in the melting bliss of Iain's searching kisses, his passionate caresses. Perplexed by her sprightly defiance, bemused by her tender nature, Iain felt his soul growing into the light and warmth of her love. Surely nothing would wrench her from the affection and trust of Iain and his clan...not even the truth about her father, a devastating secret that could shatter the boldest alliance, and the most glorious of loves!

I couldn't get past the narrator to finish listening. The Scottish accents were horrible! The men sounded like Scottish pirates!
This book is in my "hands off" pile . I've read and reread this book. Julie Garwood is a wonderful author . She has made me laugh out loud. And I've also have shed some tears. I've always wanted to know how someone would narrate with the Scottish brogue. Ms Duerden has the brogue down . It's the way she portrays the women and the rest of the book. I didn't care for the narrator.
Loved the story but felt the narrator was not able to portray the depth and strenght of Judith's character. The voice of Ian was portrayed as a whisper and lacked the strenght of being a Scottish Laird. But the story was beautifully written with strong characters.
At home mother of three girls. I love reading and romance is my favorite category. A little paranormal also thrown in is nice ok too.
This one of my favorite books of Julie Garwood's. When I need cheering up this is the story I go to. I just love it and the narration is great. I have listened to this many times and always makes me feel happy.
The scene where Judith meets Frances-Katherine. The story captures your heart and makes you want to listen.
She is always at the top of her game.
When Ian and Judith first kiss. Their attraction for each other is sizzling and it comes through loud and clear..
This is such a good book. The chemistry between Judith and Ian, the long time friendship between Judith and Frances-Katherine keeps you glued to the book to it's finish. Then after you're done, you want more. This book will not disappoint and can't wait to start the next installment.
love ms Garwood stories. the narrator was difficult to listen too. she tried to do male voices but it wasn't working for me
I am currently on my second listen in a row to this book, because it was actually that good!!! Not only is the narrator amazing but Julie Garwood is a good writer, she is witty, inserts humor and action in just the right places and always shows at least one great bond in her books. My only -1 would be that the love scenes happen near the 3/4 mark of the book but I can't complain too much.
Susan Duerden is a great narrator, she has actually spoiled me to the other Julie Garwood books that she doesn't narrate. I have to take a break and maybe wean myself off of her first before I get to the other Garwood books that look interesting.
