Still licking her wounds from a failed relationship, medical research scientist Elle Grant really doesn’t feel like joining her best friend on a trip home to Scotland. Her vacation gets off to a bad start when a sudden storm causes her to careen off a highland roundabout and total her rental car. Things get worse when she realizes that “Captain Control”–the arrogant highland police officer who rescues her– is her best friend’s big brother.
Officer Conall Cameron prides himself on being no-nonsense and professional, but all that goes out the window the moment he meets the stubborn American beauty. She might get away with sassing police officers in the States, but not with him. Though she insists she can wait for the tow truck alone, it’s his sworn duty to keep her safe. Whether she likes it or not, Dr. Elleanor Grant won’t be going anywhere without him.
When Elle and Conall stumble through a hiccup in time, fate forces them to replay a heart-wrenching family history that occurred over two hundred years ago. Will they find common ground and recognize love for what it truly is?
