Historian Bree Kirkland has always been in love with the past, but when she accidentally wakes an ancient Scottish warrior who's spent the past 150 years sleeping in her backyard, her present is suddenly fraught with danger. Faelan has awakened from the time vault hungry and horny. He grieves for his lost family, wondering who sent the woman to wake him. If she's a demon, Faelan will have to kill her. If she's innocent, she's unleashed the gates of hell in her backyard. Either way they must rely on each other to save their future.

Bree awakens Faelan in modern day New York. Immediately upon seeing her he recognizes her to be his mate, but dismisses it as delusion from being locked in the time vault for all those years.

The two of them embark on a journey of trying to capture the demon Faelan set out to capture all those years ago and stay two steps ahead of the demons currently out to kill them.

The premise of this book sounds great. I went into reading it expecting great action and even greater romance. Bree and Faelan's attraction was there, but it never really got off the ground with me. Sure there was sex between them, but that's all it felt like. Just sex.

The action scenario of the story was somewhat dry to me as well. A lot of backstory and history aspects I could have done without. I found that I tended to skip a couple of pages here and there.
