Rheade Robertson is duty bound to aid his older brother, the clan chieftain, in his sworn quest to capture the assassins of King James Stewart.

Charlotte Tremayne is an independent eighteenth century woman, a clandestine novelist, creator of a famous adventure hero. She has little sympathy for the defeated Jacobites who languish in her uncle’s cells after Culloden, but her interest is piqued by tales of a prisoner who claims to be from the fifteenth century. His far-fetched story might provide material for her next novel.
Braden Ogilvie drowns in 1436 and wakes up in a jail cell accused of Jacobite sympathies. He comes to realize he has been transported more than three hundred years into the future. Drawn to the woman who eventually believes his story, he must nevertheless return to his own time to establish the innocence of his sister accused of a crime she didn’t commit. If he leaves, will he ever find his way back to Charlotte?
HIGHLAND DAWN…inspired by Kathryn Le Veque’s The Lion of the North.
Loyalty, honor, and obligation dictate Keith Starkey’s return to his Highland wife and their loveless marriage. He must leave behind a shy English lass who nursed him back to health after he was gravely wounded and left for dead at the battle of Towton.
Daughter of a murderous traitor, Aurora de la Londe is abandoned by her domineering father when he switches his allegiance to the Yorkists.
She needs a champion, but Keith cannot be that man, despite his attraction to her.
The convent offers Aurora’s only escape from the desolation of a broken heart and the threat of vengeance from the Lancastrians for her father’s treachery.
It seems unlikely these two mismatched souls will find the path to happiness—unless fate intervenes.
Blair didn’t believe in love at first sight, until he met Susanna. But fate had destined her for his twin. He didn’t believe in time travel either, until he came face to face with an uncle who’d drowned thirty years before.
