 From USA TODAY Bestselling author Terri Brisbin. . . .

While magic still glimmered over the lands and people of Scotland and the Vikings ruled the western islands and the north, three brothers struggle against their fate to overcome a dreaded curse tied to their own Fae powers. Their hearts, souls and very lives depend on the women they betrayed.

Duncan of Skye heals with his touch and many powerful nobles vie to use it for themselves. But every use of his power brings pain and destroys his body and he knows he will not survive much longer. When a woman given to him gives him blessed relief from his suffering, he knows he must keep her as he seeks a way to end the curse.

Isabel has been forced by her stepfather to use her body for his aims. She’s learned to numb herself as she is given to many men to serve as his spy and blackmailer. But, when she is sold to the man called the Healer, she finds him to be different than any other before him.

Time is running out for Duncan and, as he draws Isabel closer and closer, they discover that they could be each other’s redemption or their destruction.  When love could break the curse can these two risk everything and claim it?

An archway in time. . .

A man in search of his future in the past. . .

A woman who holds the key. . .


 Maggie Hobbs has had enough of controlling men in her life. Breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, she heads to Scotland for her summer vacation, hoping to put it all behind her—though she never dreams how far behind her it will go! During a stop at a clan ceilidh, Maggie meets the man who should be heir to the Clan MacKendimen—one whose father turned his back on his heritage for a new life in America. And then Fate steps in to throw her back to a time when men controlled everything!


Alex MacKendimen returns to his father’s lands and discovers a life that could have been his. With the emptiness of his life staring back at him, he wished for another chance to find happiness and finds himself catapulted to the past – as he and a beautiful stranger face dangers together in medieval Scotland.


Thrown together and back to medieval Scotland by Fate, Maggie Hobbs and Alex MacKendimen must discover the reasons for their journey through time and face their greatest fears. Struggling to survive and to find a way home while falling in love, they must learn to trust each other more than they have ever trusted another. Will they make it out of the past or be forced to survive far away from everyone and all they know?
