This was my first Julie Garwood and OH MY GOD!!!! I loved this book. While I was reading it, I was working full time and planning my wedding. I finished it in three late nights. I was up until two in the morning which for me is incredible. (What can I say, I like my sleep!) I loved Brodick and Gillian. I cried at the end. It was one of my favorite romances and I will always keep a copy of it on my bookshelf!

First I have read of this author. If you like stories based with the England/Scotland feud theme then this is the book for you. Suspense, romance, humor - this book has it all. Great read (but does have sex scenes so if not comfortable with them then do not get this book or skip them as I do. :))

I L-O-V-E this book!!!! I finished it and missed the characters so much that I went back a few days later and READ IT AGAIN!!! ALL the characters are well developed and make you care for them...I laughed out loud and even shed a few tears over them.
LOTS of fun twists and lots of highlander manliness :)

***MAKE SURE YOU READ THE FIRST BOOK in the connected series THE SECRET first!!! ****

The next book in the series SHADOW MUSIC is another favorite of mine.

I was a bit skeptical, but I thought I would try it.

I ended up enjoying the book and have decided that it's a keeper. And as a result, I want to read "The Secret", the prequel of sorts.

if you're a historical romance lover, this one is for you.

I am new to Julie Garwood books. Lion's Lady got me started and now I'm a junkie! Ransom kept me up all night. I love the dialogue among the characters. Garwood has a wicked sense of humor and I found myself laughing out loud several times.
GREAT escape reading!

In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionheart, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. Once 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 then a decade.

Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclaire 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 fathers 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.

slighly worn around the edges. Good condition.
