Keeper of my Dreams is a breathtaking historical romance I couldn't put down. From the beginning, I found myself whisked away to 16th century Scotland for an unforgettable adventure. Susan Leigh Furlong is a gifted historical romance writer. Using descriptive narration, the author plunges the reader into a time and place they may not be familiar with. The plot moves at an excellent pace with intricate historical accuracy. Every detail about gunsmithing in the 16th century added such depth to the overall story. I found it fascinating myself. The hero and heroine are widowed so it was natural for them to talk about their passed-on partners.
