Publisher's Summary

Taylor Kincaid is the host of a popular television series that debunks myths and legends. So when she travels to Scotland after receiving notice of an inheritance, she hopes to unravel the mystery behind a local legend surrounding the disappearance of locals through the "Ladysgate", an archway of stones just off the Scottish coast. Despite the warnings of rugged sea captain Duncan Fraser, Taylor sails toward the arch. But when a vicious storm strikes, she is thrown overboard and through the portal, with Captain Fraser close behind her. Together, they come to grips with the inconceivable - they have somehow ended up in 1651. Taylor and Duncan soon find themselves thrust into a desperate plot to save the Scottish crown, sword, and scepter amid imminent peril. As they attempt to re-cross the centuries, they risk losing the love they've found in a time long past.

History with entertainment

I enjoyed this very much, as well as the narrative. I love history & it makes me happy when it's brought forward instead of forgotten!

Beginning seems to drag.

I think this audio book would have been much better with a narrator that put a little character in her work. It sounded like a monotone reading. I is taxing to listen to the first 5 or so chapters with all the storyline set up in a monotone narration. Her voice is pleasant but drums on and on. I've listen to at least 300 books and some are just poorly narrated.

Jumpy neurotic heroine with unbelievable hero

Written seven years after Gabaldon’s clever Outlander, this time traveller romance wizzes through one rollicking scene to the next. Mary QueenofScots’ diary is intertwined well. A bit too much Telling and not enough suggestive Showing but enjoyable enough.
