When Delphine fishes a man out of the North Sea, the last thing she expects to find is love. Not a big fan of Scots in general, she is pleasantly surprised at her instant attraction to Larkin. The circumstances of their meeting are less than ideal. Delphine is only supposed to be in Edinburgh for a day, and then there’s the small problem that someone is trying to kill Larkin.

Delphine is so distracted by her new romance, she doesn’t see that the trip to Scotland is a trap until it’s too late. An old foe is hatching a plan to kidnap Delphine and steal the most important part of her life: her ship. While her encounter with Larkin feels ill-fated, if they are able to escape, it might turn out to be what saves them both.

Not just because a ruggedly sexy, sword-toting Scotsman mistakes her for the king’s mistress and kidnaps her, but also because her walls she’s erected around her heart don’t seem to function properly in a time so different from her own.
