He needs a wife to secure his lands. She has no intention of being that wife.
A call for help transports Emma from her lonely world to medieval Scotland. Accepting her fate and opening her heart, she finds the love of a father, a trusted friend, and a child who captures her heart, but the arrogant laird offends her at every turn.
Declan, Laird of the Draig, carries the heavy burden of protecting and providing for those of the clan. Faced with the possibility of losing his land, his title, and his daughter, he accepts his own fate—he must marry and his dreams must die. A marriage of convenience is his only option.
Intrigued by Emma's courage and strength, Declan uses every trick in the book to have her by his side and in his bed. Will the laird's responsibilities destroy them both?

What's a 15th century Draig to do when he's forced to find a wife before his twenty-eighth year or risk losing his land, title and his daughter? But he needs more than a "woman to warm his bed…. He needed a mother for his daughter, a woman wise enough to manage his household, and one who could stand against the constant stream of veiled attacks…. He was also…a simple man who craved what other men did: their other half."
Wow. Tall order; especially for 1420.
Now, I know what you're thinking. He needs a modern wife. One with the strength of character and firm resolve to succeed.
Cues time travel music and Emma.
This was a fabulous story! Now, I've read a fair number of time travel stories and so many left something to be desired. They were good but this one pushed all my buttons in just the right way. The story building was just grand. The way Cortland took Emma under his wing and how easily she shifted into her new role. I loved, loved, loved that she has a martial arts background and could hold her own with sword wielding raiders while protecting those she loves.
The gradual unfolding of the relationship between Declan and Emma was lovely and fiery and everything in between.
If you love historical romances with a time travel twist, or if you simply love a well-told story, THE DRAIG'S WIFE is a good fit. So, pour yourself a glass of wine, cup of tea, or dig into your chocolate stash, sit back and enjoy.
