“Action, drama, desire, revenge: Shadow Music includes all the necessary ingredients for romantics to plunge into the moors, mountains and magical myth of medieval Scotland.”—The Roanoke Times

Prized for her exquisite beauty, Princess Gabrielle of St. Biel, the daughter of one of England’s most influential barons, is 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. 

Upon her arrival in Scotland, Gabrielle is immediately entangled in Highland intrigue, as a battle royal flares between enemies old and new. For two sadistic noblemen, underestimating Gabrielle’s bravery and prowess may prove fatal. Colm MacHugh, the most feared man in Scotland, makes no such mistakes about the captivating princess. Under his penetrating gaze, neither Gabrielle’s body nor her heart is safe.

“No one does historical romance better than Garwood. . . . Gabrielle is an enchanting heroine.”—The State (Columbia, S.C.)

“A compelling historical romance.”—Publishers Weekly

Video Review Shadow Music - Julie Garwood


  • Disappointing

    By meereh!
    No characterization, same plot as one of her other books (Castles). I absolutely adore the bride, the wedding, and the secret, and this was just terrible in comparison.
  • Great

    I got over romance novels years ago, and only accidentally downloaded this one while browsing one night. I was literally falling asleep and pressed the touch screen before I could stop it. I finally got around to reading it and was captured. I wanted more. I loved Shadow Music. The story, the characters...LOVED it! Read The Secret and Ransom first, in that order.
