“Their Happily Ever After
Deserved a Second Chance …
For more than twenty years, Evan and Evie MacDonald were the couple “meant to be.” Their marriage now in tatters, they throw one final family Halloween party to honor Evie’s recently deceased mother. But, as Evan’s hand hovers over divorce papers, the ancient Celtic secrets Evie’s mother always spoke of spring to life.
Transported in flames to thirteenth-century Scotland, Evie and Evan land on opposite sides of the feud raging between Clans MacDonald and McLeod. Dubbed the Red Devil, Evan’s skills as a leader and warrior bring him into the enemy camp—and back to Evie. Now, faced with an ancient evil they never imagined, the two must rekindle the “forever and ever” kind of love they once felt, and bargain for a bit of Fae magic to flip the hourglass right side up again—before time runs out.”
Any reader who loves time travel stories will want to pick up Ms Williams, Devil in a Red Kilt.  

The story is full of intrigue, suspense, love, and redemption. Her hero, Evan, is a man among men, honorable, strong and loving.  He is true to his wife no matter what the situation and he has temptation thrown at him regularly. Evie is harder to like, maybe it’s because we love Evan so much it’s harder to sympathize with her plight, I just wanted to reach into the book and shake her, though she is redeemed when she is thrown back in time. The historical elements are well researched and the story line over all is believable. I did have issues believing that you can be married to a man and not know him no matter what century you might find yourself in especially after you have been intimate. But if a reader can suspend their disbelief on that issue, and I believe most can, then they will be in for a great read and great ride, mixed with twists, turns, and surprises.
