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!

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
charming. love the time period. Sweet and funny without being sappy. I wish there were more books out there like this one.
loved all the characters. I really hope the author decides to expand on this story line and develop all of these characters to their full potential.
Great choice of narrator
Charming. Some truly memorable lines. Great dialogue. Can't wait for the next one.
Disappointment. This is my favorite Garwood book. I was really happy to see it available in audio, but Duerden's gravelly voiced, whispery narration totally spoiled it.
I wish I could write to someone in charge of selecting narrators and tell them to stop using Susan Duerden. Her narration of men's voices gets worse with each recording and really spoils a good audio book.
never, the scottish accent by susan duerdan is just horrendous. the women are ok, but the men...i swear they have to wipe down the microphone after a recording because she sounds like a spitting gollum!
terrible, terrible accent. i couldn't stop thinking about how bad it was for the whole second half. the story was absolutely fine!
Everything. This was the best book I've ever read or should I say listened to. It made me laugh out loud , cry, and just felt pure happiness and didn't want it to stop.
How pure and innocent and finding true love with no boundaries.
It was a little off and took a little time but she made all her characters come to life.
I couldn't stop. I can't rave enough about it.
I recommend this over all the others. Best sellers fifty shades and bared to you were good. But this book was great. Read it. You will love it.
I've listened to so many audiobooks and this is the first time I've written a review! I really loved everything about this story! The characters were well defined and the love story was enchanting, funny and spicy! I know there have been a few reviews regarding Susan Duerden's narration, but I loved her voices, male and female! At times, I was laughing out loud at many of the voices of the clan elders! Soooooo funny! I hated getting out of my car! Love love love!!! Thank you Julie for creating a sexy, funny and sweet story for me to get lost in, in horrible traffic!!
A different narrator.
Love the book and was looking forward to the audio but the narration was so horrible.
She does horrible men's voices. She makes the main character sound like a child. She whispers too much as well.
Love all of the characters!
Please tell me that the rest of the books in this series will have a different narrator!!!!!
It really makes me mad when they ruin a good book with such an annoying narrator I wish there was some one we can write and ask to never again let this narrator narrate. The story was sweet and funny totally ruined by the narrator.
