In an attempt to ease feuding between
clans and keep the Highlanders on his side, King John has
arranged for Princess Gabrielle of St. Biel to marry Laird
Monroe. Baron Coswald and Baron Percy will be furious. They
have coveted Gabrielle and believed John’s lies as he played
them against each other, convincing them they each had a
chance to claim her for themselves.
Laird Owen MacKenna envies and hates
Laird Colm MacHugh so he devises a plan to kill Colm’s brother
Liam. Gabrielle and her guards stumble upon the group of men
MacKenna hired to kill Liam. Gabrielle saves him then brings
him to safety. After Laird Monroe is mysteriously murdered,
Gabrielle’s fate hangs in the balance and Colm is forced to
come to her defense.
A treasure is believed to be hidden in
St. Biel and all those who have heard of it are consumed with
finding it. Coswald and MacKenna are no different. Colm soon
discovers a treasure as well, one much more valuable than
Strong characters combined with a vivid
and interesting storyline create a historical novel rich in
romance and sensuality in Shadow Music. Colm’s
intensity and arrogance are irresistible. Gabrielle is
beautiful, sweet and adventurous; they are perfect for each
other. I love that some of my favorite characters from Ms.
Garwood’s previous novels either make an appearance or are
mentioned in the story as well. Shadow Music is
awonderful historical romance and no one writes them better
than Julie Garwood!
