♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This is a favourite story of mine. It was my very first Garwood way back when and I have probably reread it a more than a handful times over the years. This was the first time I have listened to the audio version however and I was not disappointed. The reader had a wonderful variety of voices for the characters. So much so, that I could tell who was who, which really enhanced the story for me.
Iain Maitland is one of my favourite Hero’s He's a strong yet quiet spoken man who takes what he wants but will listen to reason as well. Judith was a good pairing for him. She was honest and straightforward, and just stubborn enough to put her foot down when needed. There are a few good laughs, some great feel good parts.
If you have never read this book. I highly suggest it.
Here's the blurb:
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.
