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 have tried ...
3.5 helms Please follow me on my blog :) Review originally posted on Vellum Voyages I haven't read a historical by Garwood in ages & I was really surprised by "The Secret"! It made me realize just how far the historical romance genre has come in the last twenty-four years. We are spoilt for cho...
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...
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...
This book is one of my favorite Garwood titles to read so I was excited to see how it would translate with Rosalyn Landor narrating. For the most part, it wasn't bad. None of the characters sounded that far from what I had imagined. With two exceptions. Frances Catherine sounded a little young...
