By edict of the king, the mighty Scottish laird Alec Kincaid must take an English bride. His choice was Jamie, youngest daughter of Baron Jamison...a feisty, violet-eyed beauty. Alec ached to touch her, to tame her, to possess her...forever. But Jamie vowed never to surrender to this highland barbarian.
He was everything her heart warned against--an arrogant scoundrel whose rough good looks spoke of savage pleasures. And thought Kincaid's scorching kisses fired her blood, she brazenly resisted him...until one rapturous moment quelled their clash of wills, and something far more dangerous than desire threatened to conquer her senses...

Posted January 03, 2012 by Sue , MiddleboroThis was my first Julie Garwood novel and I couldn't have picked better. Every note was true, every word selected was powerful. A good balance of descriptive and narrative text, usually I find this as a standard flaw but found this author balanced the technique well.
Now the plot was excellent. But you do have to accept this was written "900+" years in the past so today's sensibilities won't work. But once you move beyond that, it captures the imagination. It has a excellent undercurrent of mystery as well, very subtle and well handled. Often the "plot" is given away as though the reader needs to be lead to the goal before it dawns on the character. I find this treatment extremely annoying and found none of that present here. I couldn't "guess" until well into the book, no premature reveal to spoil my fun.
WELL recommended! Take the time and enjoy this gem.
