When Nick Mackinnon rides into the sleepy harbor town of Indianola, Texas, in 1849, he has every intention of building a ship - and no intention of marrying. It's not that the ruggedly handsome bachelor with 'the devil's own blue eyes' doesn't like women. It's just that he likes his freedom better. Then NIck's ill-tempered horse nearly tramples golden-haired Tibbie Buchanan - the most stubborn, exasperating, beautiful woman he has ever seen - and Nick is hopelessly in love. Convinced he can overcome Tibnbie's initial coldness, Nick is stunned to discover its cause.

The return of Black Douglas by Elaine Coffman( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Longing for a man like Mr. Darcy and haunted by the feeling she was born two hundred years too late, Isobella Douglas never dreamed she would get what she wished for-- until she was hurled back five centuries to the Isle of Mull in the year 1515. She arrived in the midst of a battle between the Mackinnon's and Maclean's, only to be abandoned there by the capricious ghost of Black Douglas. Left to the mercy of her fate, she prayed for a hero when she saw him, a man as fierce and wild as the barbarous place that surrounded her. Alysandir Mackinnon was a man who lived by his wits and the edge of his sword. He was a man of strong desires and in his prime, but what he wanted now were the answers to a lot of questions: Why is she here? Who sent her? And what am I going to do with her? In spite of suspicion that she is an English spy, Isobella adapts readily to castle life, and being an archaeologist, is soon up to her elbows digging in broken crockery bits, ancient bones and priceless relics, in spite of being forbidden to do so. Alysandir finds it difficult to trust the headstrong woman, or believe her preposterous time-travel story and battles the desire and distrust he feels, for Alysandir has been betrayed before. Life in Early Renaissance Scotland is fraught with danger, deceit, clan rivalry and constant threats from the English- hardly the place for the course of true love to run smoothly. It seems the hapless couple is forever trapped in a series of unfortunate circumstances, and a happy ending never seems so far away. But, never underestimate the power of a man's love, a woman's understanding or the tenacity of a beloved Scottish ghost."--Author's web site
