A man’s life can fall apart in an instant…
Tougher than oxhide, Lachlan Wallace can take about anything except a breakup call from his wife two minutes before competing in the Karate Championship of the World. Arriving home with a loss, he agrees to watch his uncle’s cat over the holidays. Or so he thinks—until he awakes on a fourteenth-century battlefield beside a woman fighting for her life.
Never underestimate a woman’s determination…
Taken from her at the age of two, Lady Christina de Moray hasn’t seen her son in thirteen years. While traveling with Robert the Bruce’s army to exchange an English prisoner for the lad, a battle erupts. Losing the fight, Christina is rescued by a mysterious warrior while the English escape with her son yet again.
And never bet against the potency of passion…
Left with no way back to the twenty-first century, Lachlan agrees to help Christina rescue the lad from his English captors. If the heir is not returned by Christmas next, the Bruce will make his decision whom to grant the de Moray lands, including Lady Christina’s hand. Once his duty is fulfilled, Lachlan hopes to discover a way home—as long as he keeps his mind on the goal and ignores his growing love for the spirited woman who gives him her trust—and her heart.

My Review & Rating
I love stories about Scots... I just love them. I enjoyed this book, but honestly I got a bit bored with it. I think that is just me, nothing at all to do with the story. The author's writing is really good. She has really great story lines and the characters are really well done. The feelings and emotions are all there, but something about this fell short for me. I honestly think it was just me and my current state of feeling. Here's what I loved about this book - the story line is awesome. It is such a cool idea, I love that is a guy that goes back, rather than a girl this time. Loved that. I love how Lachlan is tasked with being the hero of his own story. I love watching him through this book. I liked how strong all the characters are in this book. They all stand on their own, they don't rely on everyone else to live their lives. Are they stronger together, absolutely, but aren't we all? I loved how that point is also shown int he book. You can be totally strong on your own and absolutely be a powerhouse together.
So there you have it friends. Did I love it, no not entirely, but I did enjoy it. I think some of you will really love this, so please go check it out!
