Summary of the Book:

A love forged in fire lives on through the ages . . .

Skye Logan has been struggling to run her remote farm on Scotland’s west coast alone ever since her marriage fell apart. When a handsome stranger turns up looking for work, it seems that her wish for help has been granted.

Rafe Carlisle is searching for peace and somewhere he can forget about the last few years. But echoes of the distant past won’t leave Skye and Rafe alone, and they begin to experience vivid dreams which appear to be linked to the Viking jewellery they each wear.

It seems that the ghosts of the past have secrets . . . and they have something that they want Skye and Rafe to know.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. It has been a while since I read a book that moved back and forth between two time periods, but it was done very well. I have a love for Scotland and Vikings making this book ideal for me. I was a little worried that the switching back and forth would be weird or awkward, but it was not at all. The stories of both pairs were done so well. I was a little taken back that it took a bit longer than I thought for Rafe and Skye to really connect and trust each other, but that was okay. It was an amazing book. I want to read more by this author. I might have to re-read this book again. Just to take a trip back to the setting.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
