Julie Garwood's bestselling novels of the beloved Clayborne family began with this critically acclaimed masterpiece... 

The Clayborne brothers were a rough gang of street urchins -- until they found an abandoned baby girl in a New York City alley, named her Mary Rose, and headed to Blue Belle, Montana, to raise her to be a lady. They became a family -- held together by loyalty and love if not blood -- when suddenly a stranger threatened to tear them apart...Lord Harrison Stanford MacDonald brandished a six-shooter and a swagger, but he soon proved to be a gentleman to the core. The brothers taught him frontier survival, while Mary Rose touched his heart with a deep and desperate passion. But soon, a shattering secret would challenge everything Mary Rose believed about herself, her life, and her newfound love.

About the Narrator

Megan Gallagher wanted to act from the time she was five years old. She later took drama lessons when she was in high school. She moved to New York to attend Juilliard and appeared in the Broadway cast of A Few Good Men where she won two theater awards (Theatre World and Outer Critics Circle Award for outstanding debut) for her Broadway performance in A Few Good Men. After graduating from Juilliard with a bachelor’s degree, she began to work with John Houseman’s Acting Company and soon had screen roles in TV movies and miniseries, but was so discouraged trying to make it in LA that she nearly gave up to go to law school. Then she won the Hill Street Blues role, which developed from a guest star to a regular role.
