Currently Reading - Temptation of the Warrior by Margo Maguire
A new land, a new time . . .
To protect his people from a great evil, Merrick Mac Lochlainn, newly crowned high chieftain of his clan, must travel forward in time nearly 1,000 years. But when he awakens in nineteenth-century England, he has no memory of his mission to save his race, nor can he recognize Jenny Keating, the spirited young beauty who calls herself his wife.
A new love . . .
Orphaned and on the run from a cruel headmaster, vulnerable and alone, Jenny never dreamed of being rescued by any man, much less a chivalrous and handsome warrior like Merrick. Drawn to his powerful physique and mysterious ways, she begins a dangerous deception and poses as his beloved. But her feelings of desire are all too real. Together they will battle a dark threat that jeopardizes their very lives, all the while tempting each other with a passion too powerful to resist.

Ms. Maguire has quickly become one of my favorite historical romance writers. I get so engrossed in her stories that I have trouble putting them down. This one is a little diffferent than the others I've read by her; there was some time travel and magic thrown in. I just loved the relationship between Merrick and Jenny. Merrick has no memory and believes that Jenny is his wife. Even though she has seen much trouble in her life, Jenny turned out to be very strong. And the relationship between the two of them was HOT. Very much so. Loved their voyage with gypsies. I think the ending was a bit too hokey, but still well worth the time.
