A Reader's Opinion: THE SECRET by Julie Garwood


THE BOOK

Highlands' Lairds, Book One

A READER'S OPINION

Call me a sucker for a Highland romance because I love Julie Garwood's, The Secret. Iain and Judith are a wonderful pair. Two strong individuals with their own worries, ideas, and passions come together with great dialogue and sigh-worthy passion. Garwood breaks some so-called writing rules in a few of her earlier books, but I don't pay attention to them because I love the book. It's a feel-good story with a well-worn spine because it's been read numerous times. This is a highly recommended book for anyone who loves historical Highland romance.

BOOK SYNOPSIS

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!
