To those friends who made my RWA 2000 experience so much fun and whose enthusiasm fired me up to write this story—Colleen Admirand, Mary Lou Frank and Susan Stevenson. May you always have chocolate for your bananas and an Irish pub nearby for emergencies!

My thanks, once again, to Jody Allen. Her insight into Scottish culture, her knowledge of Scottish history, and her network of sources were incredibly helpful to me while writing this book and answering the many "what if" questions that arose. Any mistakes are my own.
Because Scottish Gaelic is difficult for most of us to read and pronounce and because it doesn't even sound as it looks, I originally chose to use a form of Scots English in this story. It has the characteristic accent usually associated with the Scottish language, but it is recognizable and readable to those of us who speak English. Reading it aloud will give you a real taste of Scotland, as it were. However, to make it a bit easier to read, I’ve smoothed out those words in this edition and used only a small sampling of those Scottish-sounding words.
