From the bestselling author of Breath of Magic and Shadows and Lace comes a beguiling new time-travel love story in the hilarious, magical voice that has made Teresa Medeiros one of the nation's most beloved romance writers.
Heiress Tabitha Lennox considered her paranormal talents more a curse than a gift. So she dedicated her life to the cold, rational world of science. Until the day she examined the mysterious amulet her mother had left her and found herself catapulted seven centuries into the past—directly into the path of a rearing black charger ridden by a chain-mailed warrior.
Sir Colin of Ravenshaw had returned from the Crusades to find his castle in ruins, his enemy poised to overrun the land where generations of Ravenshaws had ruled. The last thing he expected was to half trample a damsel with odd garb and even odder manners. But it is her strange talent that will create trouble beyond Colin's wildest imaginings. For everyone knows that a witch must be burned...but it is Colin's heart that is aflame, over an enchanting woman he must not love, yet cannot live without.
Sir Colin of Ravenshaw, the seventh laird of Castle Raven, sees Tabitha Lennox in the middle of a Scottish meadow in 1254. As he gallops forth on his big, black stallion, he doesn't know that Tabitha, curiously dressed in L.L. Bean flannel pajamas and chipmunk slippers, has been displaced from 21st-century Manhattan as the result of a computer glitch. In Medeiros's time-travel sequel to Breath of Magic, Arian's and Tristan's daughter, Tabby, hates being "special"; she hates magic; she hates that her mother baked cookies that danced around. She doesn't want fairy tales; instead, she wants computers. Tabitha entered M.I.T. at age 15 and has become the head of her billionaire-father's Virtual Reality lab. Medeiros has created a fine and funny combination of Jude Devereux and Erma Bombeck (the villain smells like Lemon Pledge). (June)
