"A past worth giving up the future for"
It is 1052 A.D. and Euan Donald, Lord of the Isles, has
lost his betrothed. Not through death, as he lost his first
three wives, but because she ran off and married another.
Though Euan doesn't consider this a great loss, it leaves
him in need of a wife. His former alliances has left him
with only a daughter and he still needs an heir. So, he
heads for the mainland to see about stealing one from the
clan his ex-betrothed belonged to.
Janet Duval is in Nairn, Scotland, to purchase Scottish
whiskey for her American-based firm. While walking back to
the inn with her friend Morag one night, the fog closes in
around them. When the fog clears, it's not the Scotland of
2001 that meets Janet and Moreg's gaze, nor are the
Highlanders who literally sweep them away any they are
Euan is drawn to Janet at first sight and even after he
discovers that Janet isn't one of the Hay clan, he still
finds himself wanting to keep her. But will he be able to?
For even though Janet finds herself more and more enamored
of this warrior and his time, she's still not sure she
won't return to the future if given the opportunity.
WARLORD is a choice time-travel romance that does well in a
short format. Janet fairly quickly out-grows her
inferiority complex with the help of the honest admiration
of Euan. Euan is a fine hero and this is really quite an
engaging love story. I liked the way the misunderstanding
Sensuality--NC17. Plenty of descriptive sex; crude
language; oral sex.
