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 than a decadeNow a beautiful young woman Gillian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Another book I thought I had read Boy was I glad that I didn t Read this for the Julie Garwood group read and it was delightful Julie Garwood books are definitely comfort reads She understands why we read romance and one of the reasons is we want heroines who we can root for that we fall in love with just as much as the heroes Her heroines have this tangible sweetness that makes me want to hug them root for them and to fight with and for them Gillian is no different My heart hurt for her losses and I cheered her for her indefatigable will To be honest I did think she was a slightly too good for Brodick although I did like him Maybe that s a good thing because the common dilemma for a romance fan is to like the hero I have read the other two Highland Laird books and loved them I don t know how this fell through the cracks But it was perfect timing because you need a pick me up sometimes when you ve been reading for so long and some of it s assigned reading I am a die hard romance lover and while I enjoy other genres I always come back to romance because it has the tried and true things that satisfy me as a reader In this case it s the great heroine and the story that completely immerses me and takes me away from my world back to medieval Scotland The romance is great but there s so much in addition to offer in this bookOne of the things that spoke to me strongly was the theme of family and loyalty Gillian has lost of her family but she cleaves to that which is left She lived with the hope of being reunited with her sister Her uncle who raised her after the betrayal and death of her father has her unswerving loyalty She faces great danger to keep him safe from her so called guardian Baron Alford who is essentially the Son of Satan That doesn t mean she won t spare the time to protect a young Scottish boy who was kidnapped by Baron Alford s forces even at the risk of her own life She does it for because it s right even if it s a great cost to her Fortunately her good deed leads her right where she needs to be and into the sights and arms of Brodick Laird of the BuchanansBrodick doesn t know what hits him not unusual for a Garwood heroine Before he knows it he can t live without Gillian even though he knows from the beginning that she s bound to return to England He fights his love for her because he believes love makes him weak Although he hypocritically demands Gillian s love as his due Brodick takes her into his clan literally and gives Gillian the family she s missingBrodick was a pretty good hero Not good enough for Gillian but I liked him I didn t like that he tended to usurp Gillian s self will both because he believes he knows better and also for her protection He knew that she needed a protector but the lie he told was a costly one nearly losing the love of his life in the process This book has almost two romances for the price of one The second romance between Ramsey and Brigid was fun and it develops slowly than the one between Gillian and Brodick Most of the characteristic humor is evident in their interactions since Gillian s situation is so serious it doesn t leave as much time for humorNot only was the romance good but it had genuine suspense Gillian is in some very dangerous situations and she makes it through between a combination of divine providence will power and intelligence She hasn t had an easy life but it s made her into the wonderful heroine she is One who can t help but acuire the loyalty of those around herI was than satisfied with this book It took me a while to read but that s sort of my life now But every time I picked it up I was deeply involved and enthralled This was a long book but when it ended I wished for I did feel disappointment with the resolution of Gillian s search for her sister but that s real life And at least she found a new sister in Brigid I can t help but give it five
