Book Description:

Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present-day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate . . .

Found in the arms of her second soul mate . . .
Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia . . .
Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history . . . of everything.
Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning . . . or her permission.
Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her. Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.

She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men—a laird in the thirteenth-century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland. Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately . . . into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.

The Paranormal World of
Forged in Dreams and Magick

The story line of Forged in Dreams and Magick evolved from my secret desire to travel back in time to both the medieval Highlands and the land of ancient Picts, but the mysteries behind the world were revealed to me during the drafting and editing process.

A thrilling aspect of writing as a “pantster” is experiencing the journey through the eyes of the reader, wind blowing across my face, heart racing. The rollercoaster car ratchets up to the peak before the adventure twists and turns, taking on a life of its own.

Of course, since an enigmatic box induced Isobel’s time travel, I wondered right alongside our heroine about the artifact’s mythology. My wanderlust heart needed to unearth the origin and reason behind a relic with such power. As I wrote, the very walls of Brodie Castle came to life, spilling forth her secrets . . . to a degree. {laughs} I suppose in my world, walls can talk, in a manner of speaking. ;)

Skorpius’s scene, which appears about 70% into the story, and only materialized during the first edit of the draft, became an elemental part of the Forged in Dreams and Magick world. During subsequent editing, I enriched all the chapters to incorporate the added complexity of angels in an alternate heaven-like dimension, deepening the meaning and struggles of Isobel’s journey.

Recently, I was asked by a reviewer if the presence of angels will lead the Highland Legends series toward a religious or Christian slant. The answer is no. The story is purely a paranormal, Highlander, action-adventure romance with emotionally charged erotic sex scenes. The closest any of the novels in the series will come to touching on religion or Christianity is when the characters question why, like we all do.
