A warrior with a dark past. A time traveller with a burning ambition. And a love that might just endure across time. When Kara Knight is offered the chance to travel through time, it seems too good to be true. This is what she has dreamed of her entire life - and a trip to the middle ages? This research trip will be the one that makes her career. For Drest, the arrival of a group of strangers is less than welcome. His hillfort is already under threat from neighbouring tribes - why would he risk letting in people he can't trust? But something about Kara is irresistible. His heart cannot turn her away, no matter what his head says. As Kara and Drest begin to untangle a centuries-old mystery, they find themselves increasingly caught up in each other's lives. But will the truth bring them closer together or thrust them apart?
