Somewhere in the far and distant future ....
Get ready for one wild ride! The year is 3698 and an unknown instigator has the
threat of civil war not only brewing, but near boiling! Dallan MacDonald, Time Master Kwaku Awahnee's pre-chosen successor, must now take up the office of Time Master to stop the culprit before war erupts and destroys the race of Men. Undaunted, Kwaku enlists the help of councilor John Eaton to tell the Seventeenth Century Scot of his new office and all that it entails. There are, however, a few slight problems. To become a Time Master, the unsuspecting Highlander has to willingly join with a Muiraran Maiden, a creature of incredible power who, stolen as an infant, hidden in another time, and now grown, must mate or die. To save her, Dallan must convince the Maiden of her true origins, then get her to fall in love with him. A small task compared to their impossible race against time! John's job is to make sure the clueless Scot is ready to listen to what is expected of him. And then, of course, talk him into it.

And she was well tutored as to what was acceptable for a young lady to do or say in not only the twentieth century, but the fifteenth through nineteenth centuries as well. Other girls dated. Shona, not allowed to date, was jealous of the freedom of choice normal girls had.
Shona was just going to have to face facts. It was, after all, the logical thing to do. She wasn't some astounding musical sensation to be envied. She was a freak. Little did she know she was so much more.
And little did any of them know of the evil that wanted to claim the Maiden for its own ...
