This is RITA winner-bestselling author-Gwyn Cready’s third book, in her ongoing phenomenal (“Sirens of the Scottish Borderland Series”). Another time-travel story that is absolutely spellbounding!

Bridgewater is one of the the most feared men on both sides of the border, known for his brutal tactics and skills politically and on the battlefield. Exactlywhat Undine doesn't expect or want is herself to be the object of Bridgewater’s desire and affection. Though she plans to take full advantage of the situation brought to her feet! It just might be the opportunity her spying heart has been waiting for!

Putting herself in a dangerous situation from a man who previously had beaten her! Henearly raped one of her close friends and has a long list of heinous crime and deeds he has done!
If Bridgewater ever figures out what had happened and why, he will hunt Undine and her life would be at great risk! Her friends think she is out of her mind to even put herself in this situation to begin with! Although they know she is only trying to bring peace and do it for the greater good.

The beautiful setting , exceptional dialogue and exquisite plotting was beyond brilliant! Including realistic characters that glide off the pages and straight into the reader's heart!
