Two of Scottish romance’s most loved authors have joined pens to write a thrilling new time travel series filled with passion, danger, and intrigue. These never-before-published novels will sweep you to Scotland’s Highland Heatheredge, where magic is real, time is relevant, and there is no escape from desire…
Men are disappearing in the Highland crofting village of Heatheredge. The authorities suspect foul play, but without signs of violence—or bodies—they can’t prove a thing.
World champion swordsman Cailean Ross is living the fantasy of a lifetime as the victor of Heatheredge’s medieval reenactment Gathering. But when the fantasy turns into reality, swordplay becomes a fight to the death and he finds himself among the ‘missing’ statistics.
Julianna Mackay flees a man she fears is an evil wizard and literally runs into handsome Cailean Ross. Cailean defends Lady Julianna from her attackers. Together, they set out in search of the key to a six-hundred-year-old curse that can only be broken in medieval Scotland.
When the veil of time is lifted, Cailean and Julianna find that love may not be enough to save them or those they hold dear.

Excerpt
They reached the building which housed Julianna’s room and he pulled open the door. She entered and he followed, closing the door with some force when the wind gusted into the arched entry. Julianna hurried forward and Cailean followed. They passed nine doors before she stopped and entered her assigned quarters. Cailean stopped in the doorway. One large round candle cast a dim light in the small room, aptly named a cell. A low bed with a thin mattress sat against the wall and a table where the candle burned stood against the wall directly ahead.
She glanced over her shoulder at him. “Ye may enter, Cailean.”
He shook his head. “I’d better not.”
She lifted a brow. “Surely, ye are not afraid of a woman?”
“If I wasn’t, I would be a fool.”
Mischief lit her eyes. “Ye need not worry. I dinnae have a knife.”
“I don’t believe you, my lady.”
She lifted her chin. “It isnae polite to call a lady a liar.”
“Forgive me.” He started to turn, then stilled at the echo of approaching footsteps. “Bloody hell,” he muttered. Who was coming by at this time of night? Was it Rathais, here to finish what Hugh Murray had started?
“Quick.” Julianna grasped his arm and pulled him into the room.
“Julianna—”
She closed the door, then hissed, “Shhh.”
The footsteps drew closer then passed. Julianna took off her cloak and tossed it onto the small table.
Cailean knew he should go, but how could he possibly leave her alone and defenseless? He would sleep outside her door.
“I should go.”
She shook her head. “You must wait a few minutes to be sure no one sees you.”
Cailean leaned a shoulder against the wall and crossed his arms over his chest. “If I didn’t know better, I would say ye are trying to keep me here.”
“Why would I do that?”
He smiled. “You tell me.”
“Is my company so abhorrent that you must flee?” she asked.
“On the contrary, your company is too pleasing.”
She dropped her gaze in a clear attempt to hide her expression, but Cailean could see she was pleased.
“Then stay,” she said.
“If your brother catches me here, he will kill me.”
She snorted. “Lennox knows I am a woman grown, and I am no maiden. I can do as I please.”
“That doesnae mean he would want me dallying with you.”
“Dallying?” She lifted her brows. “Ye think well of yourself, sir.”
“Dallying isn’t what ye had in mind?”
Her eyes darkened. Yes, this woman was trouble. She started toward him. He straightened from the wall and remained perfectly still until she stopped in front of him.
“I am no idiot,” she said. “I have seen the way you look at me.”
Trouble, trouble, trouble.
He wasn’t going to take the bait. He stared but said nothing.
“Ye find me pleasing.” She set her hands on her hips.
“I have eyes,” he said, then cursed his tongue. Give the woman an inch and she would take a mile.
She stepped closer and before he could move, she placed her hands on his chest. “You want to know what it is like to kiss me.”
It wasn’t a question.

What’s the difference between the Highlands and the Lowlands?

Great question. Geographically speaking, Highland Scotland is everything (incl. islands) north of the Highland Boundary fault that stretches from Helensburgh near Glasgow in Scotland’s southwest to Stonehaven (south of Aberdeen) in the northeast. Lowland Scotland is everything below.  But what truly divides the regions is so much more than a geographical line…
Culture, history, and character really define the differences. Scotland’s lower half is more heavily populated and much more industrialized, while the Highland region is a place where even today, most people live in small villages. And rather than ‘city jobs’ and industry, crofting and agriculture, tourism, and fishing provide many Highlanders with livelihoods. The Lowlands can, in part, seem crowded (well, for Scotland). By turn, the Highlands can be vast and empty. In some areas you can walk or drive for hours and only see a handful of people.
The Lowlands are deeply entrenched in Scotland’s ancient past and the main seats of power were centered there. Edinburgh, for instance. There are also many abbeys (or ruins thereof), and amazing Iron Age monuments and hillforts. The proximity to England caused centuries of battles and wars as everyone knows. That same nearness also meant that English mores and culture came to be prevalent there, influencing nearly every aspect of life, especially in Edinburgh.
In the Highlands, with the rugged landscape and rougher climate, life was much more harsh, and hard. And so were Highlanders. Fearless and proud, they had their clan system (which worked well until Culloden and the Clearances), and their own colorful style of dress. The Highland region is beautiful and also filled with archeological sites ranging from prehistoric brochs, cairns, standing stones and circles, and so much more. Dialects also divide Scotland – as elsewhere in the world. Highlanders speak with a soft, musical voice loved by many.
Even though there is a definite boundary fault, all of Scotland is amazing. Every inch of ground, each stone, or clump of heather is steeped in history. Legend and lore, ancient customs and magic also abounds, appreciated by all and inspiring many writers and artists. No matter where you go there, Highlands or Lowlands, you will fall under Scotland’s spell.
