The Secret – Julie Garwood

Julie Garwood. The Secret(New York: Simon & Schuster, 1992). 0671744216.

Main Characters: Judith Hampton and Laird Iain Maitland.

Related Works:Both Judith and Iain figure prominently in Ransom. Brodick Buchanan and Ramsey Sinclair both trained with Iain in The Secret and find their true loves in Ransom.

Description of the book:

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 know, 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 custome, 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!
