They say accidents happen for a reason...

When she was accidently pushed into a wormhole, Allorah ‘Al’ Maines never imagined she’d be thrown back in time, land at the feet of a gorgeous Highlander… and be taken as his prisoner.

Al is awestruck by the savage Scot who chained her up in his dungeon. But once she emerges from her cell, she finds herself even more captivated by the roguish Highlander he’s transformed into.

An undeniably enticing manifestation of all her secret fantasies. Ones she’s tempted to explore. However, regardless of what the fairytales say, Al knows passion fades and lust dies.  Keeping her heart intact and planning for a future on her own is the only way their story can end.

If all women in the twenty-first century were as stubborn as Allorah Maines, Keir MacCoinnach wept for the future of man.  Nay, he despaired for them. She’s utterly obtuse, difficult, aggravating… and quite possibly the most fascinating woman he’d ever met. Al offers him an intriguing peek into the future. Keeping her by his side is the key to the knowledge of the ages.  Keeping her in his bed and in his heart is the key to a life of love and joy.

But can Keir convince Al to share that life with him before she walks away forever? Can he prove to her the passion they discover between the sheets can surpass anything she’d ever found between the pages of her favorite novels?

She lost faith in the person she loved most


Lady Piper Brudenall hoped, prayed, and pleaded for her brother to return to London and rescue her from the marriage her mother arranged for her to a despicable nobleman. Heartbroken by her brother’s apparent abandonment but with nowhere left to turn, Piper knew she had no one left to trust. No one to count on. No choice but to save herself. Leaving behind life as she knew it, she ran away from it all. Living right under their noses. Fearing what would become of her if she were ever discovered.

 

He found love in the most unexpected place


Connor MacKintosh relishes the chance to take control of the Marquis of Aylesbury’s estate, Dinton Grange, while his sister and her new husband were on their honeymoon. Getting his hands dirty evolves into a far more fascinating undertaking when he encounters a bonny lass with a smile potent enough to leave a man weak in the knees. As taken as he is by her, Connor realizes the mysterious woman is running from something, or someone. Unfortunately, he can be of no help to her if she persists in running from him.


Wariness of strangers has kept Piper’s presence at the Grange a secret for more than two years. However, while distrust hasn’t entirely guaranteed security… it has ensured loneliness. When Connor comes along offering a friendly ear, a helping hand, and something more unexpected, she’s torn between her head and her heart. One knows she’d be a fool to put her faith in another man. The other promises that he is a man like no other.


As Piper’s past threatens to catch up with her, Connor will do anything he can to keep her safe. Whether she will trust him with her life and her heart…


That’s a question for the ages. 

The earl of Shaftesbury's countess must be refined. Cultured. Perfect. It was a lesson that proper Evelyn Ashley-Cooper had learned flawlessly over six oppressive years of marriage. Even when widowhood freed her from the prison her life had become, Eve still floundered under the veneer of perfection that her domineering husband demanded, unable to unleash the lively girl she once was from the confines of her prim exterior.

But when her long-lost first love Francis MacKintosh, earl Glenrothes reappears in her life, Eve is tempted by the desire to escape her proper façade and the longing to truly live once again. Discovering that enticement alone cannot overrule years of tyranny, Eve struggles between her old self and the new, between yearning to be with him and a determination never to put herself under the thumb of another man - even one she discovers she still loves as much as her Glenrothes.

Since meeting a vivacious, young 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 humiliating divorce that has rained scandal down upon the heads of himself and his family for years. Never had he 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 only in each other, he finds himself willing to take a chance.

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

Francis' seduction and ability to blend her proper side with the spirited Eve of years past lure 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 and Eve and Francis will have to risk their lives for a future together.

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

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?

 

From the author of My Highland Bride—hailed by Sandy Blair as “an entertaining time-travel story packed with spice, humor, fantasy, and nonstop adventure”—comes a sensual novel featuring a wolf-shifting chieftain who travels centuries to modern-day Scotland to tame his one and only.
 
Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched all he cherishes turn to dust—more than once. For hundreds of years, he’s been trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and he’s being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows he’s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
 
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded creature’s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his eyes—a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Surely, she’d gone completely mad. Claire Manning can’t imagine what she was thinking when she decided to help the escapee from her company’s lab but after seeing him caged like an animal, her humanitarian compulsion cannot be overridden – even by the arrogant, scowling eighteenth-century Highlander Hugh Urquhart turns out to be.
His entire life has been taken away from him and Claire understands the pain and torment of loss. She understands the desperation she sees in his eyes and is prepared to do whatever it takes to secure Hugh’s freedom and future. What she isn’t prepared for is the ruggedly handsome Scot she finds under the layers of grime and blood caked on him. Nor is she prepared to feel so much more than mere compassion for his suffering.
Not once in Hugh’s entire life has he been taken for a savage or been argued with and commanded about like a lackey as often as he had by his savior from imprisonment.
It was he who commanded.
He who men yielded to.
However, for this woman who had saved his life, Hugh is willing to concede that he doesn’t know everything, that he might need some small amount of help in navigating his way through the alien world he has been unwillingly dragged into. With inexplicable trust, Hugh hands over the reins of his future to Claire – or Sorcha as they would have called her in his world. A woman unlike any he has ever met. A woman of intelligence, wit, courage and startling passion buried deep beneath her bonny exterior.
On the run, Claire and Hugh hide away from the agents pursuing them but cannot hide from the undeniable desire that ensnares them and both must face their pasts, the loss and heartache that plagues them if they hope to discover that there is a true time and place for every Highland laird.
