One of the most popular novelists of our time proudly returns to her beloved historical romance roots -- in a thrilling tale of love, murder, adventure, and mystery set against the haunting landscape of medieval Scotland.

For Princess Gabrielle of St. Biel, Scotland is a land of stunning vistas, wild chieftains, treacherous glens, and steep shadows -- skullduggery, betrayal, and now murder. Prized for her exquisite beauty, the daughter of one of England’s most influential barons, Gabrielle is also a perfect bargaining chip for a king who needs peace in the Highlands: King John has arranged Gabrielle’s marriage to a good and gentle laird. But this marriage will never take place.

    " We're back in the give and take of English/Scottish relations in the time of King John (mostly taking on his part) and we have another strong and silent Scottish laird, McHugh, coming unglued for the love of a slightly dippy English heiress. Men in kilts. Hey, it works for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Madonna | 1/22/2014

    " Maybe because this one is #3 in a series and I didn't start at the beginning, but I didn't like this one as well as the other 2 Garwood books I read. It was o.k., but I couldn't really buy the Princess character. I don't know if I needed to start at the beginning of the series to have a different response. As of now, I'll probably not go back to the beginning to "catch up" on this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 1/21/2014

    " Wanted to love it but was so bored in the first quarter of the book that I almost DNF'd. Things got "better" but still lacked so much of what I love about Garwood's historicals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 1/15/2014

    " I give this book 3.5 stars. It wasn't up to par with Garwood's other works, but it was pretty good. Reading Ransom before Shadow Music will really help to keep the characters straight because there are a lot. I liked Colm and Gabrielle and I really liked how they didn't fight fate in regard to their marriage/love. There wasn't too much male/female misunderstanding in Shadow Music to create conflict, the conflict came from outside sources (ie other men vying for Gabrielle). However, the two main characters were a flatter then usual for Garwood probably owing to the book's short length and long set-up. Oh, and there wasn't very much "hanky panky". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen A | 12/27/2013

    " Really enjoyed this book and all the characters. Good ending, good characters, well-written, fast-paced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/21/2013

    " This was just as good the second time around. I thought I had already read it but got it again anyway. I love this story and the beautiful princess who has a huge heart for people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 12/12/2013

    " 5 stars - I just love her scottish historical stuff "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zo'e | 12/10/2013

    " I had a little trouble getting into it but once I did it was worth it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 11/9/2013

    " Another book on CD for long car drive. Kept me awake and I enjoyed it, though I don't hink it changed my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trewen | 9/11/2013

    " A smidge under 4 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane Hachigian | 3/1/2013

    " The book was decent. The intrigue and insight into Scotland were the most enjoyable parts of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 StrangeBedfellows | 1/1/2013

    " I enjoy Garwood's many books, but this one was a weak effort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wieta | 12/12/2012

    " After some serial of historical romance genre setting in London, reading this book was a refreshing thought. Setting in Highland of Scotland, nice yet tough heroine. Could not put this book till the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 11/30/2012

    " 2.5 stars. Shadow Music is a silly little book. I think audiobooks can really bring out the triteness of a story. But, since trite and silly are not always anathema to me I give it 2.5 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Evelyn | 10/25/2012

    " Gotta love a book with a strong willed heroine that falls in love with kick ass warrior. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika Gwin | 10/16/2012

    " good but not nearly as wonderful as the previous two books in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannan Henry | 2/28/2012

    " i really like this author, and this book was good, but in my opinion the climactic scene was too close to the ending of the story. still-i liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 10/3/2011

    " One of my favorites from Julie Garwood. 5 stars. I really enjoyed this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trina Nache Baxter | 8/8/2011

    " This is the story of the legend in Shadow Dance. I just don't enjoy her historical stories like I used to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 5/6/2011

    " As always with Julie Garwood I enjoyed this book "

    " I loved the story. Good Strong MEN. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 4/8/2011

    " Julie Garwood is the reason I stated reading historical books in the first place. Many years ago. I have read evey book that she has written. It was fun to read another of her historicals for a change. I love how put humor into her stores and keeps me coming back for more.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 3/26/2011

    " Last of the Highland Lairds series. I liked this series. I liked the culture story of the Scottish clan tribes. Loved the romance and action in this book (not that kind of action...) and it was definitely less "salacious" than the first two. I'm sad this series is over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 3/10/2011

    " I like Julie Garwood. I like her historicals. This was not one of her better historicals. I would recommend starting with another first. It lacked the humor of 'The Bride' or the passion of 'Ransom'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 3/3/2011

    " Got this as an audio book from LL and it made the drive to/from work more enjoyable. It was exactly what one would expect from the genre, but that is fine. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Valerie | 1/29/2011

    " I didn't finish this one. I'm a third of the way through the book and the romantic leads haven't even met each other yet. The style of writing is very hard to get through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 --- 365andMe | 12/24/2010

    " This is book three of the Highland Lairds series. I haven't read the other two, but would like to. "
