In the days following the downfall of the Templar Knights, Niall of Scotland is appointed Guardian of the sect's holy treasure, and given an awesome power that is only to be used for the sake of God.
Grace St. John loves her job transcribing ancient texts for the Amaranthine Potere Foundation. She is especially intrigued by a recently uncovered set of documents.
After visiting her computer genius neighbor for help fixing her laptop, Grace walks home only to witness her boss, Parrish Sawyer, question her family regarding the documents she has been researching. Following Sawyer's departure, her brother and husband are murdered by assassins who make it look as if Grace is the killer.
Now fleeing for her life, Grace must learn quickly how to survive on the streets. Translating the documents, Grace uncovers an almost unbelievable claim -- the Guardian knows the secret to time traveling and will use it to protect the holy relics. Soon Grace finds herself dreaming most realistically of Niall of Scotland. For his part, Niall is haunted by erotic visions of a beautiful and mysterious woman.
When Grace learns her ex-employer's true aim, she attempts time-travel herself. Only with the Guardian's power can she hope to defeat the evil forces.
