With Every Breath has modern Sunshine Phillips living in an ancient Scottish cottage on her brother-in-law's land. Her intention was to come for a short visit, to stay while her sister had a baby. Now, a year later, Sunshine finds her trying to justify staying in a country she feels more at home in than her native U.S. Suddenly one night, a strange visitor appears, she steps outside her door and is suddenly living in the feudal times of Scotland during 1375. During this stay, she realizes that her brother-in-law's land must house touchstones or port keys to the past. Trying desperately to get back to her correct year, she ends up falling in love and returning to her present.
Phillips writes a great tale, full of Scottish lore, complex characters, and convoluted turns, not to mention some very steamy love scenes. This book is a must-read, must-buy and a definite keeper for any serious historical fiction/ Scottish Lore aficionado.
Sunshine Phillips' heart lies in Scotland, a land of rain, legend, and dangerously handsome Highland lords. She longs to call the magical place home, but after a day which includes such delights as blackening the eye of her lecherous boss and changing a flat tire in a chilly spring deluge, she'll settle for an evening spent curled up in front of a fire with a cup of tea. But what Sunny wants is not what Sunny gets...
When Robert Cameron pounds on Sunny's door, he isn't paying a social call. With one brother killed in battle and another fighting for his life, the medieval laird has braved a trip onto enemy soil to fetch the MacLeod witch, a crone rumored to have healing powers. But the woman who opens her door to him is enchanting and young-and not from his century.
Now, it seems that they've both found just what they need-if only time will let them keep it.
