Publisher's Summary

Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair - for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch - until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there's "bad blood" between the couple's clans, stemming from an ancient feud that originated in Scotland and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Jordan has always led a cautious life and has used her intelligence and reason to become a successful businesswoman. So she is intrigued but skeptical of the professor's claims that the feud has been kept alive by the grave injustices the Buchanans have perpetrated over the centuries. But when Noah Clayborne, a close family friend and a man who has never let a good time or a pretty girl pass him by, accuses Jordan of being trapped in her comfort zone, she determines to prove him wrong and sets out on a spontaneous adventure to the small, dusty town of Serenity, Texas, to judge the professor's research for herself.

Maneuvering through a close-knit community in which everyone knows everyone else's business, Jordan never anticipates the danger and intrigue that lie in her path, nor the threat that will shadow her back to Boston, where even in familiar surroundings, her life is at risk.

A powerful thug who rules by fear, a man who harbors a simmering secret, and an unexpected romance that pierces all defenses - beloved author Julie Garwood weaves these dazzling elements into a brilliant novel of romantic suspense.

Love a Good Garwood Novel

I like this storyline. Garwood does not have a cookie cutter pattern. Okay, there are some items in common but the characters are different and the men are not all playboys as this one is. I like that after all these years, she is still able to shock me on who done it!

Good Story, OK narration

When I saw Joyce Bean was narrator, I thought, "OK!" Because I had enjoyed a previous book narrated by her. Imagine my surprise when I heard her interpretation of men's voices in this story - they sounded like monotone robots. I kept waiting for her to say " Meep, Meep" at the end of every sentence. While I enjoyed the story, the "men" voices started to irritate me.

Great Mystery with Love Mixed In!

From the very beginning, I could not stop listening! What a page-turner! The mystery of an ancient Scottish feud weaves through this book with excellent characterization, believable activity of a small Texas town, two murders, and the “shadow dance” of inept local law officials and the FBI. Oh! I almost forgot...! Love flares up in this highly recommended book!

Quite talkie but interesting

The story is slow, unusual but fascinating- it also has a Great Ending. The voice actress did a really nice job.

Another great in the Buchanan series.

I am truly loving this series. Jukie Garwood makes you fall in love with her characters in each book. In this book you get to know more about Jordan, the Buchanan sister you meet in the previous book. She embarks on a journey to a small town in Texas to learn more about her family history and a feud that has been happening for centuries. Is the curse real? Suddenly the quiet little town of Serenity has been turned upside down, is her being there the reason? Listen to find out
