Summary

Second chances are only helpful if you recognize them for what they are. 
Celebrated actress Scarlett Thomas never wanted fame -- that was her parent's dream.  Now she's ready to make big changes, but she could never have imagined how big those changes might turn out to be.  Returning to the medieval Dunskirk Castle, where she filmed The Puppet War trilogy, she encounters an old Scotsman named Donell who directs her to an ancient claymore that sends Scarlett slipping back 500 years to a time when her modern struggles are dwarfed by a far more dangerous conflict brewing between Scotland and England. 
Scottish Border lord, James Hepburn, Laird of Achenmeade, is a man at loose ends.  The illegitimate son of the auld King's illegitimate daughter, he has no place in his father's home and no freedom to forge a future of his own.  When war with England is again looming on Scotland's horizon, James must not only fight for his country but do so while trying to battle his growing attraction for a slender, sassy lass who tempts him to defy his sire and his King.  
As the days pass, bringing them closer to war and to each other, Scarlett and James discover that their differences are not so profound as their similarities and that the 16th century and the 21st century do not diverge so much in what truly matters most.  They try to fight against their growing attraction, but when they are confronted with the opportunity to live their lives freely, as they choose, will they seize their second chance before the Battle of Flodden separates them forever? 
Before it's too late, will Scarlett realize how lucky she was to be taken by a Laird?

    The first two books in the Singularity's Children series. 
    Book one - Denial 
    Tense, intelligent science fiction packed with ideas.  
    Debt, wars, and inequality are pushing society toward collapse. It's a world desiccated by soulless algorithms, pacified beneath the battle suit's boot, and numbed by the bewitching voices of computational propaganda.  
    Singularity's Children is vivid world-building. The desperate lives of its characters draw the listener into a terrifyingly familiar world only a butterfly flap away. 
    Book two - Disruption 
    It takes us deeper into an action-packed riot of haves and have-nots; a vivid alternate future filled with Buddhist commandos, stolen Femto-tech, AI sages, and quantum consciousness. 
    A decade after economic collapse sent the world’s governments toppling like dominoes, the corporations are back on top. Their AI farms have relieved society of the drudgery of work, leaving behind a broiling underclass precariat. The Forward governments pacify their rabbles with computer-generated titillation while channelling legions of the desperate into overseas peacekeeping. 
    Subversive, fast-paced action. A provocative excursion into a near-future civilization struggling to survive the maelstrom of post-human forces its technology is unleashing.
