Accidental time travel end up in harem rescued by American

Hello, looking for help finding a book! Here is what I remember.

Starts in "modern" times. A red headed girl is shopping somewhere (An open market type place. Might be over seas in the Arab world somewhere, although the girl is American) She is given something by a man with unusual colored eyes for that area. They are either blue or grey. The  transports her back in time to sometime shortly before or after the American Revolution. She ends up in a harem but tells her new "husband" that she is recently widowed so he gives her a year to mourn. During that time she has a eunuch slave who ends up falling in love with her. I think he has the same unusual eyes as the guy that gave her the item. At some point she is rescued from the harem by an American. While traveling back to America with him she is transported back to the time she came from. She is very sad and a short time passes (3 days? maybe weeks or months) and she goes to his house, which is now a historical site (might have been in Boston?) While there she sees a picture of him and is transported back to the past and ends up in his house in his time. A longer time has passed for him (3 years maybe?) but he hasn't forgotten her and they end up with a happily ever after.

Thank you.
