Having heard such high praise about this book, I had sky-high expectations and expected to be blown away by it. Unfortunately, that didn't happen - not in the firsst half of the story, anyway. It took me a long time to like Gabriel - too arrogant and distant - and Johanna - too ditzy and scared. At one point, I was ready to scream if he told her to rest one more time! That was funny at first, like a recurring joke, but it got old pretty fast - probably because she didn't put a stop to it soon en [...]
From the blurb, you might get the mistaken impression that the heroine is strong and smart. She's not. She's TSTL!Yeah, it's contagious.She never understands anything and is constantly asking for explanations from everyone. Strangely, this stupidity is mistaken often for cunning thinking. The men in her life are often thinking that she is purposely acting dumb in order to achieve her purpose. But, she's not. She's just dumb. That annoyed the crap out of me.The dog in the book was smarter than he [...]
I've read one other book by Julie Garwood. I wasn't that impressed with it, and after this one, I don't think I'll give her any more chances to wow me. There's a pervading sense of insult throughout this entire story. I feel like it's insulting to abused woman, insulting to alpha males, and insulting to highland Scots. Every single character is a caricature, and the humor relies entirely on the farcical, which gets damned annoying. It's also too long. Garwoood took the thinnest concept for a plo [...]
I read this for Romance Book Bingo 2017: Man in a Kilt square.I have to have some happy right now and this book is it. I have been reading this since I was 12 or 13 and still have a copy of it on my shelves. The heroine (Johanna) kicks butt. The hero (Gabriel) kicks butt. We actually have a hero/heroine who thank God do not have any rape scenes between them. They reluctantly fall in love with each other which I thought was hilarious. The little family between Johanna, Gabriel, and Gabriel's son [...]
Where to begin?In fear of sounding pathetic, I'd have to say that Julie's Saving Grace found me.My aunt works in a hotel, and they always find books left behind (I know, blasphemers!). They store them neatly in shelves and, my guess is, wait for someone to take them home.I was 9 or 10 at the time, when she brought me in to pick something out for myself.English being a foreign language and all, I really didn't know which one to pick, so I reached my hand into the back of the shelf and fished out [...]
Listened to the Audio 2/26/18: I enjoyed the narrator, though I wish she'd done a different voice for Gabriel. The story is just as stellar as ever. Re-read 02/08/13 - LOVE!How many times do you suppose I can re-read this and review it by saying LOVE!? Because I feel like this could go on forever. Re-read 11/14/11 - LOVE! This is one of my top 5 favorite Julie Garwood books. I absolutely adore everything about it from the setting to the characters.The overall message - that women are just as imp [...]
4 StarsGreat story BUT (view spoiler)[I wished the evil bishop had suffered a bit more in the end.He deserved a sorry death for his ideas on woman and their penance.And for some reason it angered me to here his thoughts and ideas were accepted and passed down to the next generation.A broken egg=A broken leg according to him.Disgusting. (hide spoiler)]Other than that I found the female lead to be slightly annoying with her arsenal of white lies,but she kind of made up for it by the end.Great but [...]
Definitely not one of my favorite Julie Garwood books. The beginning was depressing and I just didn't liking the heroine. I'm eating my words when I said, in my Ransom review, there wasn't a Julie Garwood heroine I didn't love. The ending, however, saved the book for me. In fact, it's my favorite ending of all the Julie Garwood books I've read. It was beautiful, poignant, and the symbolism of Gabriel placing his hands on Johanna's hands, helping her break the punishment rod, brought tears to my [...]
5 Wonderful Stars!
4,5 stars Buddy Read with Iliada and Riddhi <3Just some products of brainstorming:Great, great, great characters! Just what I expect from a Julie Garwood novel; a heroine which learns to show her true, genuine character (which is spirited, clever and sassy). An Alpha-hero of the first class, including a tender heart hidden somewhere behind the higland-warrior-facade. Realistic secondary characters, entertaining and sweet side-stories and subplots.Heartmelting intimacy between the main charact [...]

Lady Johanna is a widow and King John has decided she must marry again. Her foster brother, Nicholas, knows just the person for her to marry. Scottish Highlander Gabriel McBain. But Lady Johanna is more than just a pretty face and would gladly prove it but her new husband thinks her good for one thing only. Lots of great characters that make this a fun and delightful read. One of several books by Julie Garwood that I never get tired of rereading.
Review courtesy of: escapebetweenthepagesHave you ever found yourself reading a certain book over and over again. Not because you didn't understand it, but because it was just that good? That is how I feel about Saving Graceby Julie Garwood. This book has it all. When I first bought it, I read it straight through, never putting it down, except for the occasional potty break. After looking over the elegant cover, with its simplistic style and inviting colors, I opened the book and traveled back t [...]

Another great story by my favorite historical writer. There is such power in feelings. One simple act of acceptance can change someone's world. Johanna did not have an easy time of it during her first marriage. She didn't think her 2nd one would be easy either, and boy was she right! But for all the wrong reasons. 2 clans supposedly united under one Laird, with poor Johanna stuck in the middle. I got a giggle out of watching Calum and Keith try to outdo each other. Johanna sings the praises of G [...]
This is one of my first favorite romance novels. I reread it countless times. The story of Johanna and Gabe is a comfort read. Gabe is one of my favorite heroes. And Johanna's bravery is amazing every time.This book is at once tender, funny, emotional, and fantasy. If you love Scots, you'll love this. If you like romance sweet and sexy, this is your book.We have intrigue, growing to a trust and the amazing background of the Highlands written by one of the best historical romance writers ever to [...]
4 StarsI have been craving a medieval-set romance for awhile and was happy to find this book in a used bookstore especially since I know how much Quinn loves it. For me, Johanna is the star and the main reason why I could see myself re-reading it. I just loved seeing her develop into a confident young woman who ultimately ends up saving the day herself. Gabriel was appropriately alpha for the setting, but I liked the fact that he wasn't a jerk. His devotion to his clan and Johanna was nice to re [...]
Yes. I read another Kilt Romance. Yes. I gave it five stars. Quit looking at me like that. I'll explain later. Yes. My family is probably planning an intervention as we speak. No. I'm not quite ready to stop yet. I *can* stop any time I want to. I just don't want to, ok? [Picks up Ransom by Julie Garwood.gles under covers]
Extremely disliked the heroine because she was made like she was the most perfect woman on the face of the earth and whatever she touched was blessed with perfection!Very, very annoying.
3,5 - E' un classico, è la Garwood, quindi non posso dire che sia un brutto libro.Anzi, certi punti mi sono piaciuti molto, mi è piaciuta l'idea del clan-sharing (la soluzione di accorpare due clan per suddividere oneri, vitto, alloggio e capo di carisma), mi è piaciuto il suddetto capo di carisma (Gabriel), e poi ho amato Nicholas, Alex, il cagnone, Auggie il matto, le donne del clan, Clare, i poveri guerrieri ruttoni che devono imparare le buone maniereTutti, proprio tutti tranne LEI.Un per [...]
Summary Lady Johanna has recently become a widow, and against her wishes King John has commanded that she marry a Scottish Laird Gabriel MacBain. A warrior and leader, a man who has combined the strength of two clans, separate but together in harmony. Johanna knows that she has little choice, but she refuses to be treated the way her previous husband treated her. So in the moment where she meets her future husband, she feels fear, but she also feels an attraction she can’t explain. She senses [...]
After a re-read of this recently, I'm bumping my rating to five stars. A really good read! I didn't love it as mch the first time I read jt for some reason. The story took a bit of time to unravel, and at first it was moving too slowly for me in my first read through, but I really warmed up to it. Johanna is a strong character, but she's very young when she's first married and violently abused by her husband. So it takes her time to come out of her shell and start asserting herself. But from the [...]
I thought Saving Grace was a truly delightful story and a thoroughly engaging character-driven romance. I admit that, yes, it did have rather an anachronistic feel to it and that both Lady Johanna and her Laird were a little too modern in their sensibilities, but I was so drawn into the story that it really didn’t bother me.Lady Johanna is a young English noblewoman who, at the beginning of the story, is only too relieved to discover that her older, abusive husband is dead. An heiress who live [...]
Old bookie friend reminded me I never reviewed this one even though I've re-read it often so here goes after a recent re-readOne of the best of Garwood’s old historicals- it features a heroine who bravely finds a way out of an abusive situation- and, fortunately, into a lovematch. A hero who is gruff, but noble. And an intrigue plot featuring kings and conspiracies.Okay, okay, it’s a romance novel plot, solved with a perfect Happily Ever After ending, accompanied by men too amazing to be bel [...]
Julie Garwood's style of writing humorous yet emotionally deep romances puts her in an elite group of writers that I would say are "sure things". Saving Grace is in the same league as all her stories are and I recommend it highly. Johanna is unlike many of Garwood's heroines in that she was married before and was abused by her husband and also by her priest. She is afraid, of nearly everything, which is unlike Garwood's normally self sufficient strong women. You can tolerate this, as the treatme [...]
What is it about Julie Garwood's historicals that makes them so great? There is something so pure and lovely about her heroines that draws me in. They behave with very little subterfuge. They are smart, sassy, and when they suggest something, you just want to say, "but, of course!" Another winning book by this author. I wish I loved her contemporary romances as much.
LO AME!!! Sin duda uno de los mejores libros que he leido este 2014. Mi hermana y yo nos peleabamos porque se antojo de leer un poco y quedo enganchadisima, asi que se imaginan las peleas. Ambas lo AMAMOS Y REC0MENDAMOS.
4.5 stars. Great, beautiful, refreshing read. I don't usually get into historical romance but I'm happy l read this book. The characters were great, both lead and secondary and I just couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed this book. The banter between the Johanna and Gabriel is fun but also their connection is also pretty hot.
