Skye Ransom’s peaceful college life is altered when her parents are both killed on the same day within hours of each other. But when she receives a strange package in the mail after her father’s death, it contains a small device with no explanation. Desperate to find out what it is, she goes to her father’s lab to get answers—and is nearly killed by a hit man. The mysterious Dane Fortune offers her protection, leaving her no choice but to accept.
Ex-military man Dane Fortune is hired by a brilliant inventor to protect his life and the lives of his family. But when the inventor and his wife are taken out by a hit man before the job even gets started, Dane knows he has to get to their daughter before something happens to her. Keeping her safe becomes more difficult than he anticipates since more than one foe is after her and a device she doesn’t even know she possesses—a small-scale time machine.
With the hit man and the NSA hot on their trail, Skye inadvertently transports them back in time to the thirteenth century where they find themselves in the middle of Scotland’s battle for independence from England. At the mercy of the time machine—and learning to trust each other—they have to find a way back home before they’re trapped in the past forever.
