With her remarkable flair for storytelling, Leslie LaFoy is back with another irresistible romance, as a spirited cowgirl with a sure aim is hurtled back through time into passion and peril.... Riding hard against a Kansas prairie storm, rancher Glynis Muldoon makes a sudden leap--and lands in the year 1832 in the forest hideaway of a rogue Irishman with a bounty on his head. Stranded in time, Glynis wages her own battle against a hunger she cannot deny for a man she cannot afford to love, a man whose destiny was decided long before. Carrick des Marceaux, "the Dragon," is an outlaw indifferent to death--for, in the ruby of the Dragon's Heart, he has foreseen his own. Now, in the shadow of the hangman's noose, Carrick lives only for his cause. And Glynis must gamble with fate and death itself--to win a once-in-a-lifetime love.… (more)

Strong, independent and capable, the heroine finds herself thrust back in time from present Texas to historical Ireland one night during a freak storm. Actually, she's been brought back by a less than competent witch who has no idea how to send her back. There she is immediately shot but British soldiers and left to die in the woods. The hero, a wanted outlaw, finds the heroine in his secret camp and instantly knows she's trouble. His band of soldiers are discovered by the enemy and they are forced to flee. The hero is very much standoffish towards the female at first and it takes some time for him to trust her. But soon he realizes just how strong she is and their banter becomes light and teasing as they gain a mutual respect for one another. Both tend to grate on the others nerves but they are stuck together until she reach the safety of his sisters castle. The hero has known all his life that he will die by hanging on the year of 26 birthday. His visions are never wrong and as a result everyone around him treats him with kid gloves. His parents have raised him to die, sad as it is. He was always forgiven for anything he did or said as a child and was given a lot of freedom. He wants no lasting relationships and has no interest in anything besides his mission against the British. He admits that his rebellion is purely selfish because he wants people to remember him. He also says that he would just prefer to disappear, not have anyone mourn or celebrate his death. He really was very much a martyr. He absolutely refuses to believe that he's able to change his fate despite the heroines offer to take him back with her to her time and it's only when he sees a vision of his son that he even attempts to try to make anything different. It grew a little frustrating at times because he was so stubborn and blind but I loved the heroine and her steadfast refusal to give up on him. She was by far the highlight of this book. She was like zina warrior princess. She was feminine yet she could ride her horse, shoot a gun and out wit most other men. She did it with a quiet grace and confidence that I had to admire. She only cries when she's alone and when everything has finally built up to the point where she can't fight it any longer. This is also a continuation from the previous Leslie Lafoy book featuring that couples son as the lead hero. ( )
