Publisher's Summary

Rescuing the man tied to a tree seemed like a rational decision. Claire is a smart, capable bookkeeper who happens to work at a martial arts academy. She has no idea the door she walked through to save the bound man would leave her trapped in 13th-century Scotland. She is unable to regret the night of passion shared with Ian, even though it happened with the threat of death just outside the door. She pretends to be content with Ian's friendship, knowing his people must come first. Compelled by honor and tormented by desire, is being his woman, while he marries another, enough? Ian, Laird of the Draig Clan, is a man trapped by fate. Forced by necessity to marry a woman he has never met, her dowry is essential to save his clan. However, he is in love with the woman who saved his life and then spent one night in his arms. Duty prevents Ian from being able to marry Claire as custom, honor, and his heart demand. Drawn to her, believing they share the same desires and dreams in life, he finally offers her the only option available, a place by his side and in his bed.

Claire and Ian are bound together in love and then ripped apart by deception and a plot to destroy the Draig clan. Facing the final battle alone and unarmed, Claire saves them all. The ultimate challenge is forgiving Ian for sending her away.

Great story with characters you will love.

So wonderful to find a book with an interesting storyline, likable characters, a sense of humor, that takes off from the very beginning. And the love story – yes, you will get your fill of a beautiful love story.
I read this book when it originally came out. Having it on audible added another dimension. Listening to it was a great way and a great excuse to enjoy it a second time.

Unexpected delight!

What a surprise it was to find this gem hidden away in the sci-fi books. It belongs in historical romance!!! The brief origins for the time travel premise is well thought out and written. The fact that this 13th century romance almost eluded me is a tad disturbing. I enjoyed every moment. The writing is good the narration good, it's all VERY good!
