2nd Edition A conqueror’s decree can’t separate Aillil Callaghan from his Scottish heritage. He wears his clan’s forbidden plaid with pride, awaiting the day he becomes Laird, restores his family’s name, and fights to free Scotland from English tyranny. An Englishman in his home? Abomination! Yet the tutor his father engaged for Aillil’s younger brothers may have something to teach the Callaghan heir as well. Violinist and scholar Malcolm Byerly fled Kent in fear, seeking nothing more than a quiet post, eager minds to teach, and for no one to learn his secrets. He didn’t count on his charges’ English-hating barbarian of an older brother, or on red-and-green tartan concealing a kindred soul. A shared love of music breaks down the barriers between two worlds. Aillil’s father threatens their love, but a far more dangerous enemy tears them apart. They vanish into legend. Two centuries later, concert violinist Billy Byerly arrives at Castle Callaghan—and feels strangely at home. Legends speak of a Lost Laird who haunts the fortress in wait of his lover’s return. Billy doesn’t believe in legends, ghosts, or love that outlasts life. But the Lost Laird knows his own. First edition published by Torquere Press (2010).

The first half of the book is very good, easily a five star read. The problem lies with the second half of the book where a lot of the relationship building gets glossed over, and there is very little exploration of the modern world by Allili. Most of the second part of the story occurs from the poi...
4.5 StarsLet me begin with the fact that I’m not really a big fan of historicals, but have enjoyed other works by Eden Winters, so with trepidation, decided to give Duet a try. I figured I’d know within a few chapters if it would be a hit or miss. Then again, Eden Winters is an excellent writer.Here...
An amazing tale of two lovers, taken from each other before their time and reunited 200 years later thanks to Druid magic
