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
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?

Seeing everything he desires falling into place, Jack agrees to a bargain that is to him a complete win/win scenario that leaves him free of dreaded matrimony.

When she agreed to go on a date with quantum physicist, Dr. David Fergusson, Kate Kallastad never expected that he would insist on demonstrating his breakthrough in his RAL funded research into the creation of a trans-space teleportation device. Nor did she expect to get caught up in a science experiment that would send both Kate and her date hurling through space-time.
Stranded in the past with only a diminishing hope that David will be able to send them home and nothing but time on her hands, Kate takes a step down from biochemist to take a job as a maid in the household of the new Earl of Harrowby. However, this Earl if no stuffy carbon copy of Walt Whitman but rather a stunning embodiment of masculine appeal who sends her senses reeling.
To Kate, Brandon Ryder, the Earl of Harrowby, is not like any man the 21st century had ever produced. Beyond gorgeous, he is commanding, austere, aristocratic… magnificent. His appeal to a woman who had never known all those qualities in a single man was undeniable. They just didn’t build them like that anymore. He is reserved where she is merry, grounded where she is capricious. However, when Brand sets his urbane exterior aside and the passionate man within emerges, it is enough to set Kate’s heart soaring.
Brandon Ryder has spent a lifetime bound by the rules of Society and one of those rules is that a gentleman doesn’t trifle with the help. However, Kate Kallastad is no ordinary employee. His lovely new maid challenges him at every turn, astounding him with her forthright manner, by her audacity to treat him not as an Earl but as a mere mortal man. After years amid the prevarication of Society and a family that was distant at best, Brand finds Kate’s honesty and comfortable familiarity tempting, daring him to break free of boundaries that have long ruled him, enticing him to indulge in the truest passion of his life… and his growing passion for her.
Eager to indulge in an unexpected love affair with Brand, Kate embraces a life in the past only to be confronted with a choice. Life in a time that has little to offer a 21st century girl besides a chance at love or a return to her home where she has family and a job she is passionate about? Once her decision is made, will Kate regret her choice or will circumstances beyond her control change her mind for her when it is a matter of life or death?
Love takes a journey across time only to be challenged by risks, regrets and denial. When they are finally able to set all those things aside, will Brand and Kate find the right time for happiness and a life together?
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?
