Discussion Guide


By M MacKinnon

Fiona stood, frozen in shock. The man she had been embracing with everything in her soul wasn’t her boyfriend Greg…she knew him. She had seen him just last night, in her dream. He was the man she had loved for three hundred years.


Fiona MacLean has left everything—and everyone—behind to visit Scotland in search of her roots. What she finds there is a mystery reaching back nearly three hundred years, a love that transcends time, and an evil that refuses to die. How can she keep history from repeating itself and save the man she has loved for centuries?
