about

A beautiful English lady falls for a Scottish highlander in this delightful historical romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from 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, however, 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 reveled 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've got a thing for scottish lairds and this guy is one of the tops what other romance authors try and fail to do Garwood does so so well! The humour is spot on, the main characters are both strong, vulnerable, and real. The secondary characters provide depth and humour. I never wanted the book to end!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful story I love this book. Judith is hilariously innocent and enthralled of Iain. Iain is over protective, quiet, but as enthralled with Judith as she is him. This book is filled with comedic moments, intrigue, and romance. Had me laughing so many times....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Story Loved this book. I actually read Ransom first so this was like a back story to it. It's witty, romantic and a true page turner. If you love romance, you would not be disappointed if you decide to read this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret I wasn't expecting much from this book but I was pleasantly surprised! The story line & the heroine were strong and the alpha male didn't turn into a blubbering romantic mess once they got together. The fact that there was a storyline beyond just the relationship between the two of them was refreshing. Girl power & womens rights were in the air towards the end but not in an annoying overpowering way. A great read easy to get lost in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "the Best" I'm with you I have also read all of Ms. Garwood's books and mabey because The Secret was the first one I read it will always be my favorite. I have lots of novels by all different authors, but Julie's books I can pick up again and again and read from cover to cover. Julie Garwood is truly a gifted writer. Thank you for giving me hours of enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garwood's #1 in my book! I've read every romance novel Julie Garwood has written up to this date and I have to say that "The Secret" is my favorite of the bunch. I'm sure I'll have trouble expressing myself here, but I've read this book over 20 times and I still read every word from cover to cover. I love how she makes her FERMALE characters the heros and has them rescue the "big strong MAN" once in a while. Her historicals are by far the ones I enjoy the most, but her tale of friendship, companionship and loyality from this novel will get you every time.
