The Return of Black Douglas by Elaine Coffman
Scottish dialogue, men in kilts -- need I say more? Coffman does a remarkable job of painting the background of the Scottish Highlands. The dialogue is superb and the passionate scenes not overdone, which seems to be the norm lately. This is the story of Isobella and Alysandir. Elisabeth's story will hopefully be in the next book. Timetravel has to be written well, or it ruins the whole feel of the book. Coffman succeeds admirably, and although I really didn't love the character of Alysandir, in time I liked him. If you're looking for a sweet romance set in a different time, pick up The Return of Black Douglas!
