Her destiny lies in the past. So does her heart.
After surviving a fire that almost killed her, Kate worked hard to rebuild her life post-amputation. She knows her own strength. In life and in work, she never backs down from a challenge. But when she travels into the past to be with her sister, she meets a man who forces her to face truths about herself she'd rather avoid - that when it comes to love, nothing terrifies her more.
Maddock enjoys his duty on the Isle of Eight Lairds, but dreams of more. After seeing his friend find love, he opens his heart to the belief that perhaps there is a lass out there for him, as well. When he meets Kate, the bonny sister of one of his dearest friends, he falls for her hard and fast.
But she doesn't make it easy for him. Her own fears keep her distant. No matter how much he opens himself up to her, she struggles to do the same.
Can they find a way to overcome the fears holding them back? If they do, can they work together to keep the evil that rules over the Isle at bay?
