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!

This was the first book that I have read by Julie. It was so good I could not put it down. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great romance novel.
Susan was a great narrator. I could tell the difference of the characters just by the voice.
This is perhaps one of my most favorite books. The story was captivating and the narrator did an excellent job bringing the characters to life.
Julia is the main character and I loved her spunk and ability to hold her own against the Highland warriors.
The characters of the Elder Counsel were brillantly portrayed by Susan. I often laughed outloud during many of their conversations.
Third most favorite
Ian, he's clever and honorable.
I adored her proformance, I find it difficult to choose.
Yes their wedding sceen and also when she meets her father.
I had never listened or read anything from Julie before, but I am so happy I did! The narration is absolutely priceless. You can't believe how Susan can fluctuate from man to woman, from English to Scott - she is a master.
The story line kept me on the edge of every word, and the characters are wonderfully defined. This was a true pleasure to listen to and I think I am now hooked on Julie!
I could not stop listening to this book. The story was amazing! I laughed out loud so many times. Sexy and Funny!
Lost in a good book
Romantic, Sassy, Engaging.
I love a spirited woman and Judith was beautifully developed with a nice blend of compassion, spirit, and humility. I also enjoyed the humor in the story - many times I laughed out loud! I really loved all the charaters - Ian was strong but tender and so respectful.
I haven't listened to her before but I totally enjoyed listening to her and definately look forward to listening to her again.
Definately made me laugh and when I had to put the book on pause, I couldn't wait until the time I could begin to listen again.
I really enjoyed this story - my first Julie Garwood book but won't be my last. She writes a great book. I loved the charaters, the romance was very sweet and perfectly (and respectfully) graphic. The narrator only added to the story making it very enjoyable - I didn't want it to end. I wish the next book was avaliable "Ransom" and read by the same narrator!
The story was excellent. The narrator was terrific! I listened to another Julie Garwood book with a different narrator, and she did a terrible job on the men's voices. They sounded like croaking frogs not the sexy FBI men they were supposed to be. This narrator was wonderful. The men sounded like men. The accent was also good. I will make sure the narrator is a good one before I buy another book.
The plot was excellent. The characters were loveable and the story very funny.
She did an excellent job. The accent was good and the men sounded like men.
Laugh, laugh, and more laughter!
Please give us good narrators. It makes all the difference when it is an audible book.
This is book is one of my favorites. I am excited to be able to listen to it now!! I don't think I have listened to anything Susan Duerden has narrated and not enjoyed completely.
This story was excellent AND the narrator was also wonderful! (I am so glad I didn't let the poor reviews of this narrator dissuade me!!)
An absorbing historical romance with charming characters -- I loved this book and did not want it to end!! So sad to see that Audible doesn't have Ransom - the next in the series (hint, hint!)
The narrator does whisper and like another reviewer said the dialogue between Judith and Ian is outstanding -- pillow talk really and so seductive..... The whispers of the elders only added to the charm of these Scottish Warrior leaders.
Not only would I recommend this book, I have to anyone who will listen. I love Iain and Judith. The story was touching with the strong warrior that has a gentle side for his lady
I liked everything about this book. I can't choose just one instance
Iain and Judith
When Iain found Judith after she had been hurt
