Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud, as purposeful as she was loyal. The dear Scottish friend of her childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another, private 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 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 revelled 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.

I enjoyed this book A LOT! This is not a big surprise because everything Julie Garwood writes is amazing.I'm giving this "only" four stars because of the romance. I couldn't really feel the chemistry between Judith and Iain. I can't really put my finger on it, but something was missing.Other that th...

5.0 Review: The Secret (Highlands' Lairds #1) by Julie Garwood
We live in such a modern world with e-readers and self-publishing almost being the norm. I’ve been reading for so long, over 45 years. Yep, I’m ancient. When I began reading, some of the books being published would be very politically incorrect by today’s standards. Those early writers paved the...
