"Beware of shaking hands with a Sterkarm."
For generations, the Sterkarms plundered the Scottish border. They were known for shaking on a bargain with a dagger clutched firmly in one hand -- and for not keeping their promises.
Now people from the 21st century have found a way to travel to the Sterkarms' time. The 16th century is rich in natural resources and historical detail, perfect for the modern investor or scholar. Anthropologist Andrea Mitchell finds more than research there, as she falls in love with a young Sterkarm warrior. But when he realizes how powerful and destructive the visitors truly are, he vows to keep them from his land forever. And in the bloody battle that ensues, Andrea must choose between her love and her world.
The Sterkarms have plundered the Scottish border for generations. Now time travelers from the future have found a way back to the 16th century to do their own plundering. Andrea Mitchell, a 21st-century woman who has found a home among the Sterkarms, is caught between two cultures.
