Alastair MacKay, a battled-scarred Dragon Knight, flees to the sea to separate himself from his fae-given power connecting him to the land. But it is on land that he rescues a woman from a slave trader in Ireland. It is through Fiona that he steps back inadvertently into a world filled with magic - taking on the role of protector and at the same time leading him on a journey to confront his greatest regret and fears.
Research assistant Fiona O'Quinlan loves translating ancient artifacts at Trinity College. When she falls asleep on an archeological dig, she awakens in another time.

Determined to return the artifact to the Great Glen, Fiona is unprepared for the danger ahead - losing her heart and soul to Alastair "Beast" MacKay.
