In 1888 Edinburgh, Lady Jane Crichton is one of the first women to attend university for medicine, though they will not grant her a degree. She marries a gay man, providing him with the social cover he needs and her with the time to pursue her scientific inventions, including a time machine. The machine works, but not as anticipated, stranding Jane in the 13th-century Highlands. She’s rescued by Ainslie, the warrior woman who is next in line for chiefship of Clan Donald. Despite the challenges of winter, battle, and being far from home, Jane finds herself falling in love with the land and the rough woman before her. Ainslie is equally enraptured, but Jane is hiding a dangerous secret that could destroy their Highland romance.
