When Emma Collins, living an idyllic life exploring the islands of the Atlantic Ocean in the twenty-first century, is thrust unceremoniously into the past and meets the tall, autocratic Robert Leyton, her life as she knows it, changes drastically.
Aroused by his touch, can she withstand the passion and blatant sexuality that sparks between them at every contact or will the temptation to give in, become his mistress as he desires, prove too much?
Robert Leyton, fifth Earl of Drumayne, is aroused by the sight of the unknown, near naked woman, found in his forest in the year eighteen sixteen. Does he believe her story of being displaced in time or is she just a clever poacher? Knowing only that he wants her with an unbridled passion, he is determined to seduce her and make her his willing mistress. The sexual tension builds between them, leading him to believe that Emma will soon surrender but, while she responds ardently to his caresses, she is unwavering in her resolve.
Reluctant to live a life frowned upon by society, Emma must determine whether to conform or rebel; a happy but loveless marriage to a dear friend; a scandalous affair with the man she loves, or, is there another option?
