Aila Marshall wants nothing to do with Auld Donell and his endless schemes, but even she cannot deny the lure of a mystery three hundred years in the making and a hunt for a lost treasure. When she’s sent to the wrong time entirely, Aila knows she’s been played. She knows she should return to her own time and give Donell a piece of her mind… One the other hand, what’s the rush when an undeniably handsome Scot crosses her path?
Finn Keeley, Lord Rossmore, has no time for a new assistant. Especially one as sassy and bonny as the fiery redhead who’d come to fill the role. He’s spent years waiting for the opportunity to avenge the death of his wife and not once has his determination wavered. He cannot let Aila divert him from his purpose now…even though she’d the most passionate distraction he’s ever known.
As far as Aila Marshall was concerned, a good man was hard to find and love even harder. Fairy tales and white knights were nothing more than a myth. Despite her best friend finding a man in the past to steal her heart, Aila has no intention of following in Brontë’s footsteps. She’s content to indulge in the smoldering desire she shares with Finn while she solves her mystery. Nothing more. Until more is all Aila desires.

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 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.

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?
