A friend of mine from the reincarnation forum has a new book out: Descendant of Kings by Charles Boden. It's a well-written account of the romantically tragic events of the Scottish Jacobite Uprising of 1745 (plus a modern Brazilian witch doctor and the philosophy of reincarnation!) Now, for personal reasons a book like this is right up my alley and I found it absolutely fascinating; since you're reading my blog maybe you will too.
Other great books along these lines:
