Image of Sword of the Highlands (Berkley Sensation)

Wolff's second novel sweeps readers into a time of strife and passion as legend meets fact in an exciting tale. The element of time travel adds depth to this fascinating, carefully researched story, filled with intriguing facts, three-dimensional characters and enough
history to satisfy.

For reasons she cannot understand, New York heiress and art curator Magda Deacon is drawn to the portrait of James Graham, the first Marquis of Montrose. As she touches his face she's swept through time and flung into his bed. Rakish James is thrilled to have a beauty like no other appear between his sheets. She plays golf, rides and understands politics better than most men, but she's all soft woman in his arms.

Magda arrives as Scotland is preparing for war, and James is caught between the king's demands and a desire for independence. James' enemy, the Campbell, takes her captive and only James, the legendary sword of the Highlands, can come to her rescue. Even then time may not be on their side.
