Sunshine Phillips loves Scotland. What
she doesn’t love is her nasty boss or the flat tire she had
on the way home after being fired for punching him. She’s
curled up on her couch, waiting for her brother-in-law to
come and get her for the “witch’s” dinner, when there is a
knock at the door. She opens it to find a man standing
there, and he’s not an escort to the main house.
Robert Cameron is Laird of the Cameron
clan in 1375. When one of his brothers dies in battle, and
the other is mortally wounded, he rides to the neighboring
clan to fetch the “MacLeod witch,” hoping she can save his
brother’s life. What Cameron finds is a beautiful woman
named Sunshine, who takes his breath away. Their love grows
strongly and quickly, but danger is all around them.
Cameron is bound by duty to marry his
brother’s widow. What’s left of his clan, though, can’t
stand having him in charge, and when he finds out Sunshine
is from the future, he tries to return her through the time

Sunshine ends up back in her own time,
and is devastated to find out Cameron is not with her. When
she sees him next, things have definitely changed for both
of them. Can they recover their love, and face danger
I love Lynn Kurland’s time travel
novels. They are full of history, adventure and love that
tugs at the heartstrings. Having said that, however, I had
some trouble reading With Every Breath. There
seems to be an inordinate amount of fainting and other
physical ailments in this book, both for the hero and

or rereading my favorites of hers, which still reside in my
