The halls of Glen Cairn Manor churned with so much love and wedded bliss of late the sight had become downright sickening. James MacKintosh couldn’t understand how his brothers had managed to fall love-struck one after another. Not when they all knew as well as he how such an emotion could send a man from heaven straight to the bowels of hell. 

But, damned if they didn’t somehow make it all look so bloody appealing. 

New York suffragette Primrose Eames had more than enough men trying to control her already. There was no chance she’d relent and marry again, despite her brothers’ dogged “encouragement” on the matter. More than anything, she wanted independence and the freedom to live life on her own terms. A husband would only serve to snatch that dream away from her forever. 

What Prim needed was a decoy and James MacKintosh was just the man for the job.

Having failed in his search for the perfect woman to wed, James was happy to help Prim with a false courtship, but only because it served his purposes to avoid the matchmakers as well. However, James soon discovers that even a fictitious courtship with a woman set on never remarrying has its own challenges. 

For Prim, the courtship begins to feel all too real. James is too charming, too engaging and so supportive of her cause. It doesn’t take long before she realizes there is a certain freedom to be found in marriage the right sort of man. If the right sort of man were interested in marriage, that is.

It’s only when betrayal and despair leave them both longing for more in their lives that they realize the importance of a love worth having, and a question worth asking.

She lost her first chance at love…


After spending six years to an oppressive husband, Evelyn Ashley-Cooper is free to be herself again, to live again… and to love again. If only she remembered how! Eve finds herself floundering under the veneer of perfection her domineering husband demanded, unable to unleash the vivacious girl she was once was from the confines of her prim exterior.


Since meeting Eve many years before, Francis MacKintosh has become a man embittered by life, by a wife who has made him a cuckold to the whole of Scotland, and by a scandalous divorce. He never thought that he would find Eve, his Eden, once again or that he would dare push aside his disdain of the fairer sex, to trust, and love once more. But for Eve, for the love and happiness he is suddenly certain they can find in each other, he finds himself willing to take a chance.

If only he might convince his true love to do the same!

They found a second chance together…


Love and desire tempt Eve to shed her old self and begin anew, but she’s torn between the yearning to be with Francis and a determination never to put herself under the thumb of another man. Francis' seduction and ability to blend her proper side with the spirited Eve of years past lures the countess back to him, but just when happiness seems but a step away, their mutual pasts will come crashing down around them attempting to tear them apart.


Eve and Francis will have to risk their lives for a second chance and a future together.

The question remains, will their rediscovered love be enough to conquer all?

Second chances are only helpful if you recognize them for what they are.

Celebrated actress Scarlett Thomas never wanted fame -- that was her parent’s dream.  Now she’s ready to make big changes, but she could never have imagined how big those changes might turn out to be.  Returning to the medieval Dunskirk Castle, where she filmed The Puppet War trilogy, she encounters an old Scotsman named Donell who directs her to an ancient claymore that sends Scarlett slipping back 500 years to a time when her modern struggles are dwarfed by a far more dangerous conflict brewing between Scotland and England.

Scottish Border lord, James Hepburn, Laird of Achenmeade, is a man at loose ends.  The illegitimate son of the auld King's illegitimate daughter, he has no place in his father’s home and no freedom to forge a future of his own.  When war with England is again looming on Scotland’s horizon, James must not only fight for his country but do so while trying to battle his growing attraction for a slender, sassy lass who tempts him to defy his sire and his King.  

As the days pass, bringing them closer to war and to each other, Scarlett and James discover that their differences are not so profound as their similarities and that the 16th century and the 21st century do not diverge so much in what truly matters most.  They try to fight against their growing attraction, but when they are confronted with the opportunity to live their lives freely, as they choose, will they seize their second chance before the Battle of Flodden separates them forever?

Before it’s too late, will Scarlett realize how lucky she was to be taken by a Laird?
