Description

For fans of Scottish medieval romances comes this beloved and classic page-turner from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

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

Now a beautiful young woman, Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair 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 father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warrors, 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 to surrender to unexpected love.

  • A perfect story-Ransom

    I have read this book several times over the years, it remains one of my favorites. The story has everything. A woman with spirit & strong beliefs of her abilities. A strong & noble man who is also strong & obstinate. A great pair? But above everything is the humor? It comes through out the story. The book is a tale of honor & protecting others from harm. It is not a comedy, just the fact that she is quite naive & innocent. Fabulous story. I will surely read it again.
  • Wish there was a sequel!

    One of my top go to historical romance novels. However I wish Ramsey and Brigid had their own book. This book was actually the second in the series. Must read for all romance book lovers.

    This book was great. I disagree that beauty is all a woman needs review The heroine has many great qualities. She does even consider herself beautiful people tell her. You immediately connect with her! A must read!
  • Greatest book ever!!!
