A compelling, almost mystical attraction draws American designer Fiona Fraser into the force field of visiting Scotsman, Alexander Maxwell, through an eerie happenstance one steamy summer's day in New York City.

Soon after, Fiona's mercurial boss dispatches her to Edinburgh to create a Scottish Home Furnishings Collection, the chemistry deepens as she and Alex discover their ancestral bonds to the star-crossed lovers Thomas Fraser—the "Lost Lieutenant"—and Jane Maxwell, the flamboyant 4th Duchess of Gordon who died in 1812.

What if, these modern lovers wonder, their memories of a tragic, eighteenth century love triangle have been passed down 250 years, through their ancestors' DNA?

From the cobbled streets of Edinburgh's Royal Mile to the tartan and cashmere mills of the Scottish border country, Fiona and Alex grapple with the imminent threat of financial ruin to their respective firms, along with ancient wounds echoing down through time—and a heartbreaking mystery, hidden for more than two centuries, that will dictate their own destinies...

THAT AUTUMN IN EDINBURGH is a contemporary, stand-alone sequel to Ware's award-winning historical novel ISLAND OF THE SWANS.
