When Draycott Abbey calls bridal expert Kara Fitzgerald to help a man in mortal danger, Kara is helpless to fight the force of her psychic visions. But the man in question, security expert Duncan MacKinnon, has no time for vague warnings, even when they are delivered by a beautiful woman who knows far too much about his private life.
Yet coincidences begin to pile up, and soon the rugged Scotsman wonders if this beautiful stranger could be telling the truth. Determined to find answers, Duncan sweeps Kara north to his castle where, veiled in the Highland mist, the two are caught by blinding desire. Strangest of all are their hotly sensual memories of being lovers … separated centuries before.
Ex-cop Kurt MacKinnon resents leaving his training stable to dive back into undercover work. He’s seen enough sordidness to last a lifetime.

He intends to make someone pay, even if the killer turns out to be a talented rider with a smoking hot body and a disarming smile.
Julie West is chasing a big win, struggling to boost her reputation and propel her into the elite jockey ranks. There’s no time for love, but she’d have to be blind and maybe dead not to notice the magnetic new trainer in town. With her talent for handling problem horses, she agrees to work for MacKinnon, never suspecting she’s already a person of interest–and it’s not because of her riding skills.
Kurt never expected his contrary colt to flourish under Julie’s feminine touch nor for his own cynical heart to soften. But when his investigation tightens around the truth, his deceit thrusts them squarely into the killing field.

Pink Brain, Blue Brain: How Small Differences Grow Into Troublesome Gaps — And What We Can Do About It
A precise scientific exploration of the differences between boys and girls that breaks down damaging gender stereotypes and offers practical guidance for parents and educators.
In the past decade, we’ve come to accept certain ideas about the differences between males and females—that boys can’t focus in a classroom, for instance, and that girls are obsessed with relationships. In Pink Brain, Blue Brain, neuroscientist Lise Eliot turns that thinking on its head. Calling on years of exhaustive research and her own work in the field of neuroplasticity, Eliot argues that infant brains are so malleable that small differences at birth become amplified over time, as parents and teachers—and the culture at large—unwittingly reinforce gender stereotypes. Children themselves intensify the differences by playing to their modest strengths. They constantly exercise those “ball-throwing” or “doll-cuddling” circuits, rarely straying from their comfort zones. But this, says Eliot, is just what they need to do, and she offers parents and teachers concrete ways to help.
