About the Book:
For fans of sexy Scottish Highlanders who know how to treat a woman like a lady.
When someone changes history, affecting the future, Diana Montgomery, the most experienced agent of Time Weavers, Inc., travels back to 1306 Scotland to change it back. Her mission, to find the culprit and ensure a minor clan chief dies in battle as he originally had.
Diana is well-prepared to infiltrate the small MacPherson clan. What she’s not prepared for is Torr MacPherson, the ruggedly handsome warrior with a kind heart and a steadfast loyalty—the Laird she’s supposed to ensure dies.

Torr took her reaction in stride and began a tender assault on her neck.
She pushed against him, and he allowed her a little space.
She was grateful because despite her training,
she doubted she could do much to take down such a huge man,
especially if she didn’t want to hurt him. But he kept his arms about her waist.
“What is it, lass?”
It was everything. She wanted to cry and laugh at the
impossible situation she found herself in, even as her
body shivered with a growing need. She simply shook
her head and tried to step back, but he held her with gentle strength.
Didn’t he understand? She needed to put more space
between them, in so many ways. Her breaths came
quickly, her body flushed from the desire he’d ignited.
A desire she never remembered experiencing before.
She closed her eyes and tried to think of the rolling
mountains beyond the castle walls, but they faded
quickly and instead she envisioned Torr, cupping her breasts.
She snapped open her eyes to find him
staring at her, a crooked grin on his face.
“I want ye, Diana. Ye have a fire in ye that
calls me like the spring sun to the seedling.”
Oh, Shakespeare, now he was a poet, too? She couldn’t do this.
He was due to die… She had to find the Disruptor… She had to—
His deep voice soothed her. “I understand. Life here
at Gealach is new and strange, and I have possibly
presumed too much, too soon. “Ye miss yer clan, do ye not?”
She didn’t say anything. His kindness causing a
lump to form in her throat. His warm, big body so
close to hers with the scent of leather and the clean smell
from his bath was so primitively male,
he had her feeling safe, protected.
He pulled her body against his again. Instead of
feeling physical attraction, she wanted to simply
snuggle in. Hesitantly, she let her head fall against his shoulder.
As they stood there, his chest rising and falling in
steady rhythm beneath her cheek, memories of her
dad doing the same calmed her. When she’d done
poorly on a test, not made the volleyball team,
or when she was dumped by her first boyfriend
in ninth grade, dad had held her just like this. Torr
would make a good father…except he was destined to die.
She stiffened. Did Torr have any children after the
Disruptor saved him? He deserved children.
He reacted to her body language and stroked her back.
“I know it is hard. I too have lost many of my family.”
She pulled back to look at his face,
anxious to hear what he’d reveal.
“Unlike ye, I didn’t know my mother. She died
shortly after Kerr was born. Five sons took too much
out of her. But my brothers and my father made a family.”
She put her hand on his chest, feeling the sadness
behind his words. This man deserved comfort
more than she did. He had endured
so much, and yet still offered more to others.
He covered her hand with his and sighed.
“The war has taken all but Kerr from me. Him
and the few left in our wee clan. I’m glad ye joined us.
I hope ye will eventually feel this is yer home.”
His inner sadness called to her in a different way from
his persuasive sexual advances. In that moment, he touched her heart.
“I’m sure I will. It is the only home I have now.”
She grimaced inside at such a bald-faced lie.
