Jordan Buchanan is thrilled that her brother and best friend are tying the knot. The wedding is a lavish affair—for the marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch—until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there’s “bad blood” between the couple’s clans, stemming from an ancient feud that originated in Scotland and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Jordan has always led a cautious life and has used her intelligence and reason to become a successful businesswoman. So she is intrigued but skeptical of the professor’s claims that the feud has been kept alive by the grave injustices the Buchanans have perpetrated over the centuries. But when Noah Clayborne, a close family friend and a man who has never let a good time or a pretty girl pass him by, accuses Jordan of being trapped in her comfort zone, she determines to prove him wrong and sets out on a spontaneous adventure to the small, dusty town of Serenity, Texas, to judge the professor’s research for herself.

Maneuvering through a close-knit community in which everyone knows everyone else’s business, Jordan never anticipates the danger and intrigue that lie in her path, nor the threat that will shadow her back to Boston, where even in familiar surroundings, her life is at risk.

A powerful thug who rules by fear, a man who harbors a simmering secret, and an unexpected romance that pierces all defenses—beloved author Julie Garwood weaves these dazzling elements into a brilliant novel of romantic suspense.

    " i love noah claybourne awesome man smooth, with a character, body and mind to compete for and a mind freak lady jordan with an awesome career. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhianne | 1/29/2014

    " I love Judy Garwood and recently picked this book up shortly after it went to paperback. I would say it was not her best novel but it still kept me very entertained and was a very easy quick read. I would recommend if you like romance novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacie | 1/24/2014

    " I liked this book. Well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 1/23/2014

    " I liked the story line, but I wish there was more banter between Jordan and Noah. This book also needed an epilogue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lucy | 1/18/2014

    " I am still terribly disappointed that Ms. Garwood crossed over to the dark side of contemporary romance. Her style does NOT lend itself well to contemporary settings--her heroines are dopes (and carbon copies of each other) and her heroes are medieval lairds stuck in politically correct sensibilities. The fact that Noah Clayborne is a descendant of THE Claybornes did not save him. The whole thing was vanilla. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/16/2014

    " I can't decide if I like Noah Clayborne or John Paul Renard better...both make their books fun to read. I've noticed a predictable pattern in Julie Garwood's heroes and heroines but Shadow Dance is a book I could read again and again and not get old. Jordan and Noah make me smile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wminbc | 1/16/2014

    " This is only one in the series that I read, but I loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/17/2013

    " It was okay for a simple book. Just seemed like the ending was wrapped up too fast. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dena | 12/1/2013

    " I just could never get into this book. I loved Noah's character in all the previous books and was happy to read one devoted to him. However, I just never felt the connection between him and Jordan. My least favorite of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MG2112 | 10/31/2013

    " Now to find out the mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 10/10/2013

    " I liked this book a lot! Just when you thought you had it figured out, nope you didn't! Great read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 9/2/2013

    " Another great romantic mystery, not trashy, well written, an easy read but with some depth too, I enjoyed it, perfect for this time in my life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 7/30/2013

    " The usual Garwood romance, but not quite as good. Maybe I'm getting too old. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shyloh | 5/2/2013

    " It was a good book and I enjoyed the interaction between the H/H, however I felt something about the mystery aspect was lacking. Without giving anything away I just didn't feel that everything added up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 2/18/2013

    " This is the first contemporary one of Julie Garwood's that I've read. I had no idea where the story was going and the things that happened to Jordan made me laugh. It was a fun light read with a few twists I wasn't expecting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 6/21/2012

    " One of Garwood's Buchannan novels, this one centers around Jordan one of the two girls in the family. It is a quick read and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Novia Raihanah | 6/9/2012

    " Bloody hell. Seeing the links definitely makes it better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mondae Roberson | 3/28/2012

    " This book was a fun, murder mystery, romance. Nothing heavy, just entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marisa Mccarthy | 11/24/2011

    " The book was ok. I had a hard time getting into it. Its not a book that kept me wanting to know more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 10/18/2011

    " This book was ok. Nothing too special, but easy to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 7/23/2011

    " Enjoyable enough. The "ancient family feud" plot is largely unnecessary and is largely ignored throughout the book. I liked how nicely the main character took to small-town life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 7/4/2011

    " I couldn't put this book down once I got into it. At about 50 pages into the book it gets very crazy with murder and mayhem. I would definitely recommend this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cactuskid2 | 4/9/2011

    " Select Editions Vol. 5, 2007 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/9/2011

    " 3.5 stars- I liked the characters and the mystery element kept me guessing to the end but the damsel in distress meets charming FBI agent/police detective etc. is getting kind of old.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/31/2011

    " Nice easy read. I liked it well enough to try the whole series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 3/1/2011

    " Just picked this book off the library shelves as this author was this month's Romance Reader's monthly author challange. Liked the storyline and now realizing there's books that come before I'm most likely to go back and read them in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/27/2011

    " Listening to this book as a book on CD as I drive to and from school! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Freya | 1/30/2011

    " Not as good as 'The Bride' but I love the Scottishness in Garwood's books... I'm going to be reading a lot more... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wminbc | 1/10/2011

    " A good mystery and of course just the right amount of romance! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 12/5/2010

    " Eh, all the reviews I read thought they were left hanging at the end. I enjoyed the book, but didn't feel the need to read the next in the series. I wanted something light to read during the holidays, and this was perfect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maldivianbookreviewer | 12/4/2010

    " The most disappointing book for me in the Buchanan series. I was in so much anticipation for Noah's story that it just fell flat with me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 11/18/2010

    " Current day murder mystery with nice romance between an FBI agent and computer wiz young woman. Fairly entertaining. "
