Romance Time Travel | Paranormal

American beauty Sunshine "Sunny" Phillips has happily put the city lights of Seattle behind her in favor of staying on at her new brother-in-law's estate in the Scottish Highlands. As the official clan healer and witch-in- residence, Sunny would like to make the Highlands her permanent home, but she needs a husband to make her dream come true. Her dreams of a whirlwind romance, true love and immigration haven't materialized yet, but Sunny lives for the day. Content in her cottage, tending her garden and visiting with her sister, Sunny has no worries...until the night she answers a knock at the door and Robert Cameron holds out his hand, pulling her into the 14th century.

Robert Francis Cameron mac Cameron has need of the MacLeod witch. His own is dead, drowned by his people in the loch some months past. Now his brother lies dying and Cameron risks life and limb to find the MacLeod hag and "persuade" her to come to his brother's aid. Although he doesn't realize it, the MacLeod estate is riddled with time "potholes" and the cottage door he knocks on opens in another century. The witch isn't the crone he was expecting, but Cam needs a healer and convinces Sunny to leave with him despite his misgivings regarding her outlandish clothing and the strange furnishings he sees inside the cottage.

Not realizing at first that she's stepped through a gate to the past, Sunny goes willingly with Cameron thinking he's her escort to the MacLeod keep where she is expected for dinner. When she realizes what has happened (time-travel is nothing new to the people living on the estate), she doesn't panic and accompanies Cameron to his hall where she does her best to help his injured brother, who dies despite her best efforts.

When the people of the keep, led by Cam's own cousin, try to drown Sunny, Cam comes to her rescue. He saves her life and keeps her close even though he knows he's obligated to marry his brother's widow. Cameron tries to return Sunny to her cottage, but the time gate refuses to open and she and Cam are forced to stay together for awhile longer. When Sunny finally returns to the present, without Cameron, she's heartbroken. Although she knows 600 years stands between them, she's grown to love the Highlander and can't imagine a life that doesn't include him.

An experienced storyteller, Lynn Kurland keeps her fans happily reading with one engaging story after another. Long-time Kurland readers will welcome a return visit with the time-traveling Highlanders and new readers won't have any trouble easing into the series. Although part of a series, WITH EVERY BREATH, like all her other Highlander books, can be read as a stand-alone novel.

SUMMARY

When medieval laird Robert Cameron pounds on Sunny Phillips's door, he isn't paying a social call. He's braved a trip onto enemy soil to fetch the MacLeod witch, a crone renowned for her healing powers. But the woman who opens her door to him is enchanting and young... and not from his century.
