Maddock enjoys his duty on the Isle of Eight Lairds, but dreams of more. After seeing his friend find love, he opens his heart to the belief that perhaps there is a lass out there for him, as well. When he meets Kate, the bonny sister of one of his dearest friends, he falls for her hard and fast. But she doesn't make it easy for him. Her own fears keep her distant. No matter how much he opens himself up to her, she struggles to do the same. If you enjoy time traveling romance books then you need to get this book and the others in this series, They are all very good books. The narrator does a great job with all of the different voices. I am looking forward to the next book in this great series.

But the last thing she wants is to be an obligation to him. Erica could never be a duty to Hudson, but for some reason that’s what she thinks she is.
