A heart to heal…
Duncan MacCowan once trusted his heart to the wrong woman, but when a strange lass drops into his life and pries opens his heart again, he impulsively handfasts her.

A family legend that will tear them apart
Fiona wants to shake her fist at Fate--she finally meets the man of her dreams but can’t have him because of the family legend? Not cool, Fate, not cool. Duncan believes he’s just terrible at picking women and destined to be alone. But as the heat of their attraction flares, how far can they tempt Fate for love?
Quarles returns to late-17th-century Scotland in the hot and sexy fourth Must Love time travel romance (after Must Love Kilts). Fiona Campbell, a determined and forthright woman, has travelled back in time to the late 1600s, and thinks that she is destined to fulfill the family legend about a woman named Fiona who saved her ancestor, William Campbell, from a MacCowan warrior bearing a crescent-shaped scar above a Celtic knot on his chest. But Duncan MacCowan, the man she must protect William from, is also her newly handfasted partner. As Fiona and Duncan travel with MacLeod warriors to Dunvegan Castle, the sizzling attraction between them becomes impossible to ignore, and they explore the possibility of making their handfasting into a true marriage. Fiona tries to reconcile her desire to be with Duncan with her duty to her family legend, and Duncan begins to open his heart to the possibility of love. With just the right amount of period detail, scorching sensuality, and a strong, independent heroine, Quarles's latest brings historical Scotland to life. (BookLife)
Great time travel romance
I enjoyed this because I love time travel romance. I like Duncan because he tries so hard to put his foot down when dealing with Fiona, but he's not mean or hateful just a little bullheaded at times. I like Fiona because she is independent, determined and she has just enough history knowledge to be a little dangerous. Duncan is really a gentle bear of a man and tries to fight the feeling he has for her. The have 300 years of knowledge, normalcy to tackle and it was interesting how they bridge that gap as the build a new love. Great historical romance with a mystery twist, secrets and sexiness!
