|| Tess Alexander has it all: family within reach, work she loves and the chance to live in a perfectly restored medieval castle. But then a trip to the village brings her face-to-face with the owner of the local garage, who looks a great deal like the man who married her sister...800 years in the past. She's determined to remain objective about magic and destiny, but she can't help wondering about that mysterious, sword-wielding mechanic. As far as John de Piaget is concerned, he has no past; it's safer that way. The last thing he needs is the nosy medieval studies scholar from the nearby castle dredging up ancient history, his ancient history.
