In this splendid New York Times bestseller, Julie Garwood brilliantly crafts the majestic story of a young Englishwoman determined to fight for her freedom...a woman whose life would be transformed by the rare, unexpected gift of love.
When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry -- and selected a bridegroom for her -- it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.
At first Johanna was shy, but as Gabriel tenderly revealed the splendid pleasures they would share, she came to suspect that she was falling in love with her gruff new husband. And it was soon apparent to the entire Highlands clan that their brusque, gallant laird had surrendered his heart completely. But now a desperate royal intrigue threatened to tear her from his side -- and to destroy the man whose love meant more to her than she had ever dreamed!

I love how all of Julie Garwood's books are all lovey dovey and happy and then they have just a little problem in them. They give the reader a respite from the busyness of everyday life and give them the chance to take part in another life! Thanks for all of the wonderful stories! Every single one of her books is amazing!
This is definitely one of Garwood's signature works. Although I think Ransom, The Wedding, and The Secret are better novels compared to this one. All are about English heroines involved with highland lairds. The Prize and Honor's Splendor are my favorites among all her works.
