Image of Lord of the Black Isle (Mackinnon-Douglas)

Here at last is the eagerly awaited sequel to The Return of the Black Douglas. Elisabeth’s story is full of passion and betrayal. Unfortunately, Coffman is too heavy with the history lessons and the quotations; they drag down the novel and the reader.

Twin sisters are thrust back in time to 16th-century Scotland. Dr. Elisabeth Douglas is kidnapped, rescued and then left at the altar by royal decree. With a little help from a family ghost, she decides to devote herself to healing and retires to a nunnery to learn “ancient” remedies. She guards herself well, especially from Devan Murray, the Earl of Kinloss, who is too curious about her and determined to learn all her secrets. Can they guard themselves from falling in love?
