When a spirited Scottish lass crosses paths with a charismatic Outlander, sparks fly that threaten to set fire to their separate worlds…
Vibrant Fiona MacLeod has never left the Isle of Skye, except in the pages of cherished books. However, everything changes when her mother makes a deathbed request that Fi travel to Falkland Palace and experience the royal court. It may be her last chance to see the world before she is married off to an overbearing Highland warrior.
Across the ocean in Europe, architect Christophe de St. Briac enjoys a perfectly-ordered life. He’s a rising star among the artistic builders of the Renaissance and has his pick of women to warm his bed - until King François I pressures him to accept a project at Scotland’s Falkland Palace.
Although Fiona and Christophe are from different worlds, they soon find their passionate souls have everything in common. But while they seem to be on a collision course with destiny, dark forces are conspiring to keep them apart…

Impetuous, courageous Shelby Matthews moves from Deadwood to Cody, Wyoming to manage her father's new ranch. She plots an outrageous scheme to raise funds for improvements by playing poker.
Cynical Geoffrey Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, arrives in Wyoming for one last adventure before he submits to an arranged marriage to save the family estates.
When Geoff steps off the train in Cody, Shelby thinks he'll be an easy mark in her poker game. However, he quickly wins half her ranch and has no intention of letting her out of the bet. It's the beginning of a magical, impossible romance that takes the couple across the sea to England, where Shelby performs with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show and Geoff, now a Duke, wrestles with conflicts between duty and the painful longings of his heart.
Author's note: Geoff is the descendant of Andrew Weston, Marquess of Sandhurst, in OF ONE HEART.
