Eternal Passions
by Brandy Lee

When Susan Keith meets soap star Ryan Douglas in Greensboro, North Carolina, she knows he's the kind of man she'll never forget. Both are cast in a charity play set in fourteenth century Scotland, and something electric hums between them each time their eyes meet. Fate often plays strange tricks, but this time it brings them back together— after seven centuries apart. Scotland during the struggle between Robert the Bruce and King Edward is often violent, but love and passion finds a way to bloom when Highland laird Sir Alex Campbell first meets Lady Gillian, daughter of an earl, widow of Lord Montgomery. Sparks ignite, passion flames, higher and hotter than any blaze searing Scotland. Gillian first defies Alex, then finds herself helpless to deny the bold, handsome warrior, but their eternal love will have to be fulfilled at a future time…
