Utilizing time-travel elements, Wolff enables readers to feel as if they are a part of history as real and fictional characters move swiftly from battle to battle. She utilizes the key ingredients -- excitement, accuracy and romance -- to craft a memorable story.

Harvard weapons scholar Haley Fitzpatrick is transported through time after uncovering a mysterious weapon and an even stranger painting of herself and the infamous Highland warrior Alasdair McDonald, known as MacColla.

When he rescues his sister and finds Haley near his enemy's camp, MacColla fears she's a Campbell spy and abducts her. She's stunned to find the man depicted as bloodthirsty is a true epic hero: strong, loyal and in possession of a fine sense of humor. MacColla comes to admire Haley and soon realizes they're soul mates. But Haley knows that MacColla will die on an Irish battlefield unless she can find the means to change history.
