This captivating story sets up the trilogy story that surrounds two identical men separated by 700 years.

Shawn, whom is living in current times, is a celebrated trombonist touring the world and causing havoc everywhere he goes. Every hotel they leave is in ruins thanks to him and many hearts are broken in his wake. He has a steadfast girlfriend who wants to believe the good in him but even her patience is wearing thin.

Niall, whom is from the 1300's, is recovering from a wound and preparing to set off for battle against the English. He is known for being an honest and good person. He is betrothed to be married if he returns unscathed from battle.

Somehow (this hasn't been explained quite yet) the two men switch places while they were both asleep in the same room in the castle and wake up being assumed by everyone else to be the other person. Niall quickly figures out what happened, thanks to some fairy tales from his time but Shawn takes a bit longer to figure out that he is not in the century in which he fell asleep in.

The story follows both men as they try to figure out what is going on and how best to play the role they've been thrust into while all the while trying to get back to where they belong and the women they love.

I was immediately swept up into this novel and found it very hard to put down when I began reading it. I think that any fan of time travel novels and/or Scotland will enjoy this book. It is very well written and the characters are believable which is intricate when writing about a premise which is so far fetched.

I am greatly looking forward to the next in the series!
