Description per Shelfari and Goodreads
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 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!
This was my first venture with checking out books from my local library via my kindle. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I have known about this method for quite some time, but have been diligent in getting linked..... I absolutely wish that I had done it sooner.. The last three series I have read are available in my e-library.
Anyone that knows me and my romantic OBSESSION with all that is the Scottish Highlands, will know this is right up my alley. I am always up for a tale of the Scottish Highlanders, Lairds, a fair maiden with a dash of honor and passion.
I really liked this book, found it to be an easy read and will definitely look into others written by this author.
T'was tale of friendship, honor and ties that bind.
