Caught between a job offer she should take and a marriage proposal she doesn't want, Dani Amico is dying for some adventure. So she takes off to visit some of the places on her bucket list. The first - an abandoned island she read about while researching her American History thesis. While there, she tumbles into an abandoned cellar hole . . . and wakes up more than two centuries in the past.
It's 1775 and Iain MacKail's ship is loaded with contraband he is smuggling into Boston. This unknown Dani, the "boy" he found in his cellar, could be a spy for the British customs agents, so Iain is forced to take the boy with him to insure that he and his mission are not compromised. Only he soon finds out that this "boy" is so much more.
As they travel through pre-revolutionary New England, Dani realizes she's falling for the rugged Scotsman. But she can't forget something she came across in her studies--the fate of Iain MacKail. He would be betrayed by someone close to him and suddenly disappear from history. Could this be the reason Dani fell through time--to save Iain? Could they live and love together in this war-torn time?
Then again, if she tries--and fails--to change his fate . . . will she end up sharing it?
Skye Taylor lives in Florida where she divides her time between writing novels, walking the beach with her dog, MacDuff, volunteering at the JAX USO, and trying to keep her to-be-read pile from taking over the house. She considers life an adventure and in a world of people who ask "why," she has decided to ask, "why not?" She spent two years in the South Pacific with the Peace Corps (2002-2004).

She loves to travel and has visited twenty-seven states, fourteen countries on four continents, and the South Pacific. Her bucket list includes at least that many more places to see. Having been born and lived most of her life in New England where her children grew up, she is now a transplanted Yankee soaking up the sun, warmth, and history of St. Augustine, Florida.
