Museum director Tasha Banner needs a miracle. Without a great deal of luck and even more money, the pioneer museum will close. But when they demonstrate a Scottish New Year’s tradition, a tall, dark, and yummy stranger walks through the door. Have the faeries sent her a miracle wrapped around the man of her dreams or will altering time bring disaster to them all?

Blacksmith Dougal MacBride walks into his home after a long day and finds strangers celebrating Hogmanay when it’s just days before Christmas. Confused beyond belief and incredibly aroused by the curvaceous bundle in front of his hearth, he is torn between the need to return to his time or remain in the present with the woman who may be his soul mate.
~My Thoughts~
This is a romance novel mixed very loosely with a time travel concept. The time travel is there and adds a bit of spice to your typical bodice-ripper, but was not particularly that relevant to the story. The time travel did make things interesting when Dougal had to deal with the future. Reminded me a bit of Kate & Leopold...mmmm...Hugh Jackman...

Primarily though, Timeless Passion is about the loving ;)

The story was written with a great sort of description in the narrative that really let you feel and see the scenes around you. This led to a beautiful picture as well as great storytelling.

I liked getting to see the two different perspectives of both lead characters and understanding how their feelings organically grow for one another. Dougal is great. He's the typical alpha male Scotsman. Full of fire and lust and super sexyness. Tasha took me a while to warm to, but I think that's because our personalities are a bit different and she seems a bit wimpy to me. 

This was a very quick read. More of a novella really. Shouldn't take you more than an hour or two to wet your whistle and get your heart a thumping!

Dougal MacBride froze in his tracks in the doorway of his home.

“Happy New Year,” shouted a group of people he didn’t recognize. They stood in a small group gathered around his kitchen table.

They were dressed in strange clothing— brightly-colored coats on the men, women, and children alike. The women wore scandalous dungarees and their heads weren’t covered.

Fear gripped his throat and pounded at his temples. Who were these strangers and what were they doing in his home? They didn’t seem threatening, but Dougal looked around for a weapon and spotted the fire poker. “What are ye doing here?”

The strangers stared at him with eager anticipation, but for what he didn’t know. “Tell me, what are ye doing here?”

The only decently dressed woman stepped forward. Her floor-length dress was cinched tightly at the waist, accenting her full hips and ample bosom. Her blue eyes twinkled like the clear winter’s sky and her auburn curls, peeking out from under her white bonnet, framed a pretty face.

“Welcome to my home.”

 “Yer home?”

The room felt warm to his cheeks, so he knew the fire had been blazing for a few hours. Whatever their reason for being here, he wouldn’t allow them to stake a claim to his home. He waved his hand at them, like swatting at bothersome flies. “Be gone with ye.”

The woman’s blue eyes clouded to a cool gray. “I’m Mrs. MacBride, the Scottish woman in the village and…”

“Yer not.”
