Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Horrid narration"

    The absolute worst narration I've ever tried to listen to. Read in breathy, overly dramatic, hammy monotone. What a terrible disservice to Garwood fans.

    Story
    "Screeching male voices - ugh"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have two major issues with Susan Duerden's reading style: <br/>1. Uptalking. Endless uptalking. It's a habit that makes much of her narration sound like she's asking questions, when she isn't. In the longer descriptive sections, it's especially hard to handle. <br/><br/>2. Whispering to screeching men. Any loud male voice turns into a raspy, irate harpy. The rest of the time? They're speaking in breathy whispers. It's off-putting. <br/><br/>I'll stick with Rosalyn Landor and Anne Flosnik whenever possible. Sadly, my favorite Garwood books are narrated by Susan Duerden and Heather Wilds--who is even worse.

    "Who knew?"

    Do you think that it is impossible to tell a romance story with a humorous,,historically accurate, original, action adventur plot? I did,yet Julie Garwood did! This book is fun ,the characters are believable and the story is full of people we all wish we had for friends ! An outstanding story told by a refreshing and talented Master ToastMaster.

    "Love these books"

    Not in love with the narrator when she did the male voices. She sounded like they were in the mafia. The female characters were fine...

    Story
    "Horrible narration"

    The narrator sounds like Count Dracula when she's doing a male Scottish accent. In addition, she enunciates the end of every single sentence the exact same way. Every. Single. Sentence. The story is just your run of the mill, shallow and unrealistic romance, which is perfectly fine because that's what I was in the mood for when when I purchased it. :)
