And when he tricked her into marrying him, I laughed like a lunatic. That was one short-lived Big Misunderstanding I had no problem with. I was married on a horse? I doubt Brodick would get away with his antics in real life but he just turned out to be one of my favorite heroes in Romancelandia.
Gillian was perfect match for Brodick.
She didn't need to be coddled, which was refreshing when it comes to heroines in Romancelandia. Not that she was harsh or anything like that, she was just strong and independent.
And yet, once she fell in love with Brodick, she wasn't afraid to admit she needed him to make her happier and she enjoyed talking and sharing her feelings with him. If I have a minor quibble about her, it's her behavior near the end of the story, when she almost drove her uncle crazy with her crying over Brodick: it was a bit out of character but, all things considered, it didn't bother me much.
It did make me smile imagining her uncle's "suffering". Why hadn't Gillian been killed by the villainous Baron Alford?
Was Gillian's sister truly alive? How did Gillian and Alec meet considering how prisoners are supposed to be kept isolated? So many questions Thankfully, everything started making sense soon enough and there was no stopping after that.
Julie Garwood. Shadow Music: Editorial Reviews site. Brodick finds himself playing protector to Gillian, an exquisite English beauty, who is desperate to find her long-lost sister and a treasure of incalculable worth--one for which many already have died, including Gillian's own father. Coerced by the fiendish Baron Alford, who murdered her father before her eyes and usurped her birthright 14 years earlier, Gillian must return to England with Arianna's Box, a bejeweled golden box commissioned by King John, or her beloved Uncle Morgan will be tortured to death.
In spite of Gillian's fragile looks and her loathsome English bloodlines, Brodick encounters a woman of immeasurable courage and determination, one not at all intimidated by his legendary temper or imposing size. And as he realizes that he has met his match in Gillian--whose sense of honor and duty equals his own--their passion for each other grows ever stronger in this thrilling historical.
Well, they don't seem to have remembered the purpose of their quest, possibly because each is too busy being laird of his own clan.
When Lady Gillian arrives in Scotland to search for her long-lost sister and to return a kidnapped boy to the Maitlands, she pulls Brodick away from his duties by claiming to be his bride. Her guardian, Baron Alford, believes her sister holds the key to a treasure King John is desperate to find. Alford, the man responsible for killing Gillian's father, uses her uncle as a ransom against her return. Gillian needs Brodick's help to locate her sister, who is believed to be hiding within Ramsey's clan.
When the two strong-willed people meet, tempers flare and sparks fly. Jan Maxwell provides an excellent interpretation of the nuances of Garwood's writing, but the abridgment itself leaps too quickly across important plot points and lingers on background material, leaving listeners to wonder "What happened?

I love this book. I have read it countless times. There are essentially two love stories in this book, and my one complaint would be that Ramsey's love story took too much of a back seat. I would have liked to see more of his love story, I think there was a great possibility for another whole story that we missed out on.
But unless someone can convince the author to do a rewrite or add on for this book we are stuck. I loved the h in this book, she was not rude or naggy in order to appear strong. She was brave and her acts defined that and she didn't think she was strong while very obviously being strong. She didn't feel the need to prove herself she just was what she was.
There are no great misunderstandings in this book that create drama for the sake of drama to try and build up to the climax. The h and H communicated well and thought the H was stubborn she didn't just let him have his way.
She did what she knew needed to be done despite what he thought. I will say that I thought she fell in love with him a little fast and I didn't like that she asked him to join her to Ramsey's I feel like it was a little conflicting with how her character was written and could have been done a little better, but it didn't really deter from the story and she certainly made up for it. This book is worth the read it is not focused on sex and blah blah though is does have a couple love scenes that aren't too graffic.
This book truly focuses on a story. Not just two people lusting for each other but rather it hostess and entire cast of well written characters and a sound plot that are the foundation of a good wholesome story. I reread this book often, my favorite part is where she is getting her wounds tended at the beginning of the book. I love her bravery and selflessness and her determination to control the situation when everyone around her is trying to take her control away.
The story is humorous and still romantic without the over lavishing on the character's feelings and emotions. You know what I'm talking about. Like those books where the author spends pages describing ones heart palpitations at the sight of the other.
This book offers just enough details on their feeling to be appreciative and understanding to their feeling without the urge to skip over paragraph after paragraph to get to the action. I love Julie Garwood she is a talented author and I hope she starts writing more historical fiction soon.
I always enjoy Julie Garwood's characters' sense of humor, and the dialogues in her books so often tickle my funny bone that I'll laugh out loud, but I must say Ransom tops my list of favorites. This time, after downloading Ransom, I saw that The Secret and Shadow Music were also available books 1 and 3 , so I bought them and forced myself to not reread Ransom first. Reading The Secret first was not a hardship: Now on to Shadow Music - which I have not read before! Can't wait!
Housework can, though, and maybe the laundry! Thanks, Julie Garwood. Romantic and funny, typical of Garwood's work. However, Ramsey and Brigid' story was not developed at all. Since the first book in the series, I've wanted to read Ramsey's story and that's why this was such a disappointing book for me. There wasn't much about them at all. They were like Sidekicks, and that was a great disservice to them.
The 3 stars is for Brodick's story. I couldn't give it higher because the climactic event at the end was stupid and there times that it dragged and I was skipping pages as nothing was going on and they keep harping on the same subjects. Warning, spoilers ahead. So, Gillian wanted to go back and save her uncle. Brodick, of course, instead of telling Gillian his plan, broke his word and did his thing.
Predictably, and stupidly, Gillian got herself caught with her trusty sidekick, Brigid, in tow. I understand plot twists are there to serve the romance But can't they at least make sense?
