For years, American Katherine St. Claire dreamed about a medieval Scottish laird. When the dreams seem to become more vividly real, the college professor decides to visit Duncreag, Scotland to learn more about Iain, the ¿occupant¿ of her nights. Accompanied by her brother Jeff, Katherine stays at the Duncreag Castle-Hotel.

Their best friend, Assistant DA Elaine Macqueen flies to Scotland only to learn from Jeff that Katherine vanished. As Jeff and Elaine fall in love during the search for his sibling, Katherine is back in time. She and Laird Iain Mackintosh have fallen in love and married. However, 1467 is a dangerous time due to treachery and out of control ambition. Instead of a happy ever after, Jeff knows something went wrong over five hundred years ago because the evidence has Katherine married to the wrong guy. He and Elaine are not sure how to help their beloved Katherine.

Time travel romance readers will fully enjoy Dee Davis¿ delightful EVERYTHING IN ITS TIME. The story line is entertaining as it switches back and forth between the mid-fifteenth century and the present. The lead charcaters are a warm, intrepid duo while Jeff and Elaine make a darling couple. The rest of the cast provides the girth needed to make both centuries seem real. If this novel is any indication of Ms. Davis¿ talent, sub-genre fans can expect many entertaining works over the next decade.

All I can really say is that this book struck me with awe. Never have I felt so much happiness and joy for a story as I did with this one.This story is the kind that is hard to find: when the main characters already know how they feel bout eachother, no questions asked. EVERYTHING IN ITS TIME was breathtakingly beautiful, well thought of, and it is a MUST for romance lovers. My compliments to Ms. Davis on her beautiful, perfect story, and may she write more like it. She leaves you soaring through time... literally. She had me crying with happiness!

*** WOW! WOW! WOW! Dee Davis has outdone herself with this novel! I'm hoping a book club will put it out in hard back so I may have a life time copy! Yes, it is that wonderful! This is highly recommended reading so be sure to either pre-order a copy NOW or have your eyes pealed on the bookstore shelves in early July! This story is a dream come true! ***

When a trip to Scotland leaves Katherine St. Claire with passionate memories of a man, she has no idea it will change her life and those of the ones she loves most. Katherine visits Duncreag in a dream and is swept into the arms of Iain Mackintosh, Laird of Duncreag. One night of passion leads to years of longing and visions of something Katherine isn't quite sure is possible. When the realization of her love for a man she only knows in dreams, she knows she must do whatever it takes to get back to him, even if that means finding her way back in to the fifteenth century. Eight years later, Katherine is once again at Duncreag. With her brother's help she discovers that her dreams might actually have been a form of time travel. Her prayers are answered and she is reunited with the Laird of her dreams. But happily ever after is not so easily attained when a vicious foe sets out to destroy Iain and everything he holds dear. The villian exacts his revenge by kidnapping Katherine and wreaking havoc in Iains life. EVERYTHING IN ITS TIME is everything a romance should be right, down to the unexpected ending. Dee Davis has written a time travel that will touch even the most hardened reader. With dramatic scenes and characters who will reach off the page and pull you into the story, EVERYTHING IN ITS TIME is not to be missed. I couldn't stop reading until the very last page and then I wanted more! Watch out for Ms. Davis she is overflowing with talent.

Publishers like Jove made it possible for readers like me to gorge themselves on various romance sub-genres like time travel. After reading my first time travel romance, I was completely smitten with the idea of true love crossing the barriers of time and space. I was so smitten, in fact, it bordered on obsession as I trolled every bookstore in my path looking for every time travel romance I could find. When Jove began publishing their Time Passages line, I was determined to acquire a copy of every single title they published. Though I was not able to achieve that goal, I did manage to find quite a few, but many of them, this one included, got buried in my "to be read" mountain over the years. When I switched to reading on an e-reader, I was excited to discover this copy available for my Nook so it prompted me to finally read it. My biggest regret is that I waited so long to read such a wonderful story. Katherine and Iain were absolutely wonderful characters. The passion and love they feel for one another is written with such clarity and emotion, I felt for them and the despair they felt at not being together. A 500+ year gap does not diminish their certainty that they would find their way back to one another eventually. It made me realize that it's that kind of devotion and commitment that is missing in so many relationships here in the real world. Over the years, Katherine has never forgotten about her night of passion with Iain and refuses to let go of her belief that it was real and not a vivid fantasy or dream. It's this kind of determination and persistence that makes Katherine such a strong and amazing character. The same is true for Iain. He has never forgotten Katherine and has even spent the years since searching for her, hoping to find her, knowing absolutely nothing about her, not even her name. She has haunted his dreams and he doesn't feel whole without her. He is convinced they are meant to be together and would move Heaven and Earth to make it happen. I really enjoyed getting points of view from both Iain and Katherine. As the story unfolds, getting glimpses into both past and present gave me a wonderful sense of each character's reality and helped me to see how the past and present are connected. Even after Katherine's return to 15th century Scotland, the reader is still connected to present day Scotland and the role Katherine's brother is placed into. I can't recall reading a time travel story where the past and present are so tightly connected and interact with one another. I really enjoyed it, especially when Katherine's brother, Jeff, discovers what has happened to his sister and becomes involved in setting the past right. I don't know why I am so drawn to time travel romance, especially if it involves kilt wearing Scottish highlanders, but I just can't get enough of them. I don't think I want to experience the 15th century personally myself, but if I were going to cross the barriers of time and space, Scotland would be at the top of my travel destination. Dee Davis has done a wonderful job of bringing 15th century Scotland to life, so well in fact, that it is very easy to see in my mind's eye the beauty of the place as well as the hardships people endured back then. But it doesn't stop there. In addition to the excitement of being in the presence of kilt wearing Scottish men and a romance that made my heart swell from its sheer intensity, Dee Davis takes it even further and throws in mystery, intrigue and murder. This story definitely has something for everyone. In case you didn't already know, Dee Davis is no stranger to writing mystery, intrigue and murder and she does it quite well. Overall, I highly recommend this book for everyone because it will speak to all readers. Fans of most any genre will find something enjoyable in this story. You will root for Katherine and Iain to find their way back to each other and cheer them on despite the adversity they face. You will enjoy the secondary characters like Katherine's brother and Iain's cousin because they add to the story and make you care about them and what happens to them as much as you care about Katherine and Iain. You will want to raise a Claymore and fight the despicable villains side by side with these characters. My only problem with this book is that the story ended and I still want more.

I love highland romance stories and time travel stories, so when I find one that has both elements I get excited. Still there can be ones that aren't quite good. This one was wonderful. It was full of action and mystery and love, but also smut, whuch is a bonus for me.
