I love books that portray strong, intelligent women and, in this one, a man who falls hard and forever. This is full of love, humor, great chemistry, courage, mystery, suspense, and loyalty. A must read and a keeper! No boredom here! Other books that snapped me to attention, see below.

I have read many books, but this book and Julie Garwood's other two books (The Secret, and Shadow Music)truly define the meaning of highland male-driven romance. I laughed, cried, and read until I finished each one. Then turn around and reread them at least three times a year. My daughters and other family members have recieved these books as a gift from me, and they frequently talk about how wonderful they are. I keep checking to see if Julie Garwood will take us back there again to see how the children of the main characters evolve.

I didn't think The Secret could have an equal, but this follow-up book is awesome! I loved how there were two stories going on at the same time. I loved how the character's interacted with each other. I would loved to see how Gillian did at her husband's home though. This book had you laughing, on the edge of your chair with so much suspense and a lot of surprises. Great read! Ljb

I laughed, I cried, I held my breath for the next happening. This is truly one of the best books I have read - and I am an avid reader. Alec was amazing, he made me laugh and he broke my heart, but he made you feel the wonder and vulnerability of a child. Gillian and Brodrick, along with Brodrick's guard were so much fun. I have read this book multiple times and definitely will again. Chivalry can be found in the strangest places. Thank you Ms. Garwood for such a wonderful surprise!

This was the second book I've read of Julie Garwood and I really like her writing style. Ransom tells a story of two sisters separated after the death of her father by someone in search of a treasure. Quite brutal in the beginning but this developes the intensity and urgency of the story. A lot of drama and in the end justice is served. A very good read.

It's hard to follow at first because of so many characters, but i fell in love with the book. It's romantic, heroic and it makes you want to experience it yourself.

Ransom truly puts the reader in the middle of things. From the moment I started the novel I felt as if I was part of all the adventure. I love how Julie Garwood shows the hatred between the English and the Scottish, but in turn defies this statement with the romantic matching of couples. This book was truly one of my favorites.

I could not put this book down. I truly enjoyed this book. I love how Gillians character is strong and how she speaks her mind even when she isn't supposed to. I'd like to have some of her qualities. Brodick's character is enjoyable too, especially his devotion, strength,and humor. I love how Julie Garwood always manages to put humor in her books too. I never quit smiling. I hope you read this book!

'Ransom' is one of the best books I have read of Julie Garwood's other than 'For the Roses'. 'Ransom' made me cry and laugh from one page to another. I loved the way that Gillian was strong and very proud of who she was, and very loyal to her family. I was also a little bit upset with the fact that her sister turned her away just like that. I could never put the book down for a second though. I read all the way through until I was done.

Julie Garwood is one of my two favourite romance authors. I always eagerly await her books and as usual I was more than pleased with her latest, Ransom. I love her novels of a rich and beautiful culture and a proud and passionate people, the Highlanders. Her characters as usual melt your hearts and make you smile. I absolutely loved the book and spent a lot of late nights devouring it. With Julie Garwood's books I find myself reading them over and over.

I have to say that RANSOM was my favorite of JULIE GARWOODS books,I love the medieval times ,she makes me wish i could go back to that time,I adore Brodick Buchanan enough to want more,I even liked him in THE SECRET.I love the plot to RANSOM.JULIE please if you can give us a sequel of how BRODRICK and GILLIN make out when they get to his home.I never get tired of reading about those two. JULIE you'er not keeping up with me,I have read all your books a dozens of times,i need more.I would also add to all your readers that if they have not read RANSOM to do so,they will love it as i do,and want more.I do not tell much about the book,because if i got started i will not be able to stop.

Bought this book years ago when it first came out and read it over and ocver again over the years and so i had to buy it on my nook reader. Ms. Garwood, i hope you will go back to writing historicals. I like very much youur contemperaries but the historicals are so sweet and funny so much more sentimental. Love those highlanders!!!!!!!

I Love, Love, Love this book! For those of you who read "The Secret" I have two words for you... Brodick and Ramsey! This book has it all... a brooding, alpha-male type highland laird and a strong, quirky, lovable, demure English lady. Together the fireworks fly, the banter is fantastic, lots of humor , smoking hot chemistry, and a love to last through all time! One of my favorites by Julie Garwood! A Must Read or in my case a read it over and over again book!

I couldn't put this book down! From page one, I felt as though I was part of the adventure with Brodick, Gillian, Ramsey & Bridget. (Brodick and his guardsmen are an absolute hoot!) I have read this book numerous times and each time I still cry and laugh out loud as well. Julie Garwood is truly a genius when developing characters and telling a story. Her sense of humor is terrific. I have read where she was discouraged from putting so much humor in her books. Boy, were they wrong!

I am the type of person who doesn't enjoy reading much, but then I saw this book in the library and I just thought that I should read it.. And this is the best book that I have ever read in my life (so far!!!! Lady Gillian is a heroine and I love the way she always portrayed herself as a lady.

I absolutely adore this book. I have read it three times, and occasionally I will pick it up and read from random pages. I would suggest reading The Secret prior to Ransom, but reading them backwards (as I did) is far from harmful! I have thoroughly enjoyed every book of Garwood's, though Ransom is my definite favorite. I highly recommend this enchanting tale!

Julie Garwood shines in this novel. It really shows off her wonderful talent. The book is so well written it simply captures you. You can almost see the scenes take place in your mind as you read. The people have such strong characters whether hero or vilian. The mystery twisting throughout grabs you and you do not realize who is the traitor until the end just as the players figure it out. Even King John seemed very real.

I really enjoyed this story. I thought at first that it would be something that would be too much like a romance novel where the woman was helpless and the man was the strong, brave one... boy was I wrong. The way the characters were portrayed was phonominal(sp?) I think that this is a must read. If anyone has comments on this story, e-mail it to me please. ^_^

this was a wonderful book, Ms. Garwood develops her characters very well. As a young reader, I thought it had a little bit of everything, a little adventure, a little romance, a little bit about family relationships. I thought it was very exciting and kept my attention until the end.
Guest More than 1 year ago
This is a great book. I read it in ONE night. I honestly could not put it down. I couldn't wait to turn to the page. I have read all of Garwood's romance novels, and I believe this is one of her best. I look forward to reading her next book.
