He came to her out of the swirling mist on the cliff’s edge, a ghostly figure who seemed larger than life. Dark, handsome, blatantly male, Gavin MacKinnon radiated the kind of confidence that led men into battle and women into reckless choices. A quiet English professor with the responsibility of her young niece, Julia resisted his every attempt to persuade her into the most reckless adventure of all, until she realized no one should deny the chance for a miracle.
Swept back to 1816 Scotland, Julia tumbles straight into the arms of the flesh and blood incarnation of Gavin MacKinnon, Earl of Dunmore. Her memory scrambled, her identity in question, she feels as though she is wandering through the pages of an Austen novel, complete with a Scottish version of her favorite literary hero, a man she cannot resist. Together they must fit together the pieces of a puzzle that originally led to murder if they have a chance to change fate. Drawn to each other, they discover their destinies are intertwined in ways they had never imagined.
