I love this book! I re-read it often. The characters were fully realized, three-dimensional people with understandable strengths and weaknesses. The mystery of the story is interesting, and keeps you guessing. All in all, I think this book is one of the finest examples of the medieval romance genre.

This is my favorite book by this author. It's a great story and I loved every word. kept me on the edge of my seat. The wedding was the best part.

I really enjoyed this book because it's set in a different time and it pulled me in from the beginning. It also has a little mystery and some romance.

Ransom is my favorite Julie Garwood book. I love her books about the Scottish Highlands. I recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance. I would read The Secret first.

In the dark days after the death of Richard the Lionhearted, lives and lands would fall into upheaval at the hands of a power-hungry British ruler and his violent minions. One victim of the scourge is innocent Gillian, who is a mere child when the cruel and ambitious Baron Alford slaughters her father and tears her family apart. Alford, determined to recover a jeweled box for the despotic King John, is furious when the precious treasure slips through his fingers -- only to be lost for more than a decade.

Now a beautiful young woman, Gilllian finds the key to resolving her past in handsome Scottish chieftains Ramsey Sinclair and Brodick Buchanan. With the cunning and courage of the daring Scotsmen, and with the friendship of a new ally, Bridgid KirkConnell, Gillian at last fights the unscrupulous Baron Alford, laying claim to her home, her family, and her father's reputation. But in the presence of the mighty warriors, Gillian and Bridgid discover that desire can be a weapon of conquest ... betrayal can slay trust in a heartbeat ... and the greatest risk of all is surrender -- to the deep emotions of unexpected love.
