All I Want For Christmas Is...

This is a feature/meme created by Danya @  A Tapestry of Words where you choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto your wishlist – and I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! So if you want to make your own blog post about it, please link up here. :)

My pick for this week is...

"The Secret" 
by Julie Garwood
Series: Highlanders' Lairds #1
Genre: Historical Romance
Pages: 379
Author's website:
Published: June 1995 by Pocket Books

Goodreads Blurb:
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 known, 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 clash of spirited wills and customs, 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!

Why I added this one to my Christmas wishlist:
I have wanted to read this book for a long time. In January 2010 RT Book Reviews did a feature on Medieval romance books and this series was listed as #1 have to read.

@ Hott Books - Gina, Thank you soooo much that is so sweet. I just ordered it today on Paperback Swap after doing this post. What ereader are your getting? I have a Kindle but I do both ebooks and print to get a variety. I would have to recommend the Kindle of course. =) Thanks again for being so generous.
