What would you risk to find love?
Mackenzie Cooper has had it with romance. On her way home from another blind date arranged by her well-meaning sister, she is caught in a snowstorm. While maneuvering the twists and turns of the icy road, Mackenzie loses control of her car and crashes into the rocky hillside. When a rugged Scotsman pulls her to safety, Mackenzie is sure she must be hallucinating. Through the storm's fury, he takes her to shelter in one of the mysterious stone chambers scattered throughout Putnam County, New York. Snowbound, Mackenzie must wait out the storm with this strange, kilted man who claims to be a Highlander from eighteenth-century Scotland. By morning, she not only believes Ciarán MacRae's story but has also lost her heart just in time for him to kiss her, promise his love--and then vanish.
Their greatest battle of all will be against their own hearts.
Lightning strikes an ancient stone chamber, thrusting Violet Quinn back in time to sixteenth century Scotland. Emerging amid the frenzy of the Scottish Reformation, her life is at risk as she searches for a way home. Scottish knight Robert de Mallay is on the most important mission of his life: protecting an ancient secret. He detours to rescue a beguiling young woman in peril. Now both are in danger as they fight off pursuers, all the while knowing that completing the mission will part them forever.
His future is her past, and their love is lost somewhere in between.
Lucy Buchanan has been jilted. When her groom arrives at the altar and announces the wedding is canceled, she flees into the woods. (It was either that or the Hudson River.) Hearing well-meaning but unhelpful bridesmaids approaching, she ducks into a stone chamber and emerges on the other side, where she's about to be trampled by a horse. She's rescued from danger by Rory Munro, the valiant but troubled son of a wealthy Highland laird. At first convinced that she's dreaming, Lucy begins to realize that she's stumbled into 1746 Scotland and must find her way back through what Rory calls the "fairy cairn." In the meanwhile, she might just be falling in love. Betrayed years ago, Rory is certain he'll never love again. Then a lost bride awakens the trust in his heart that was broken. If Lucy leaves, she'll return to a time when his future is her past and their love is lost somewhere between.
