Tougher than ox hide, Lachlan Wallace can take about anything except a breakup call from his wife two minutes before competing in the karate championship. 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 14th century battlefield beside a woman fighting for her life.
Taken from her at the age of two, Lady Christina de Moray hasn't seen her son in 13 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.
Left with no way back to the 21st 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.

He doesn't know where he is or how he come to be there, he only knows he cannot abide a woman being abused and his principles dictated that he help her.
It's a unique time travel story unlike any I have heard before.
Although there are many, one scene I liked was when Lachlan rescued Lady Christina's son who had been kidnapped by an evil English Earl 13 years ago. Lachlan could not imagine the boy would resist being rescued and was taken by surprise when the boy pulled a knife slashing him across the chest.
Yes, and I did.
When the story first began I did not think I would like it, but soon I became completely engrossed and could not stop listening to it. It's a fast paced story and the 9+ hours sped by so quickly I was surprised when it ended. It had a good ending.
The narrator gave a great performance.
