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 by 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 to this land...Iain Maitland, Laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than she had ever encountered. In a spirited clash of wills and customs, Judith reveled in the melting bliss of Iain's searching kisses. Perplexed by her defiance, bemused by her tender nature, Iain felt his soul growing into the warmth of her love. Surely nothing could wrench her from the affection 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 loved this book as well as it's sequel, Ransom.
Julie Garwood writes about Scottish history with some romance thrown in. It's a great book and I recommend the series to anyone who likes Historical Romance.

The cover is new and so is the cover story. If not for Ian Maitland and Judith Hampton, I would have thought this was a book I've never read.

I remember the story as follows: Judith Hampton and Mary Catherine became friends before they realized that they were suppose to be enemies. Judith, an English lady promised her lowland Scottish friend Mary Catherine that she would assist with her pregnancy. The Maitlands didn't encourage visitors to the Highlands, so Mary Catherine had to go before the council to get permission.

It was a funny, and entertaining read. Enjoy!

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 clash of spirited 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!
