Mildred, a young woman living in New England during the onset of World War II, worries about her family. What is to come? How will life change? Little does she anticipate change is to come not from war, but from an unexpected trip back in time to medieval Scotland.
Adlin, Chieftain of the MacLomain clan, will never forget the moment he lays eyes on her. Though he rules one of the most powerful clans in Scotland, Mildred redefines the man he thought he was. Her quick wit and perseverance humble his natural arrogance. Her sensuality cripples his defenses.
The maddened determination of a rival chieftain threatens their very existence. Caught together in time, they must find a way to evade the mighty MacLeods and keep peace in the Highlands. But lust, rage, and potential war simmer on the edge of their every move.
Will Mildred and Adlin find true love despite the odds?

Writing has been a passion from the beginning.
At seven, I was the first second grader in the state of New Hampshire to win The Young Author's Award. However, I was too young to understand what that meant. I figured it out a couple of decades later. When I did, I never looked back.
Poetry was my passion at first but I shortly realized that though I had a love for words and my poems were okay, they did not touch the talent of so many other poets. This knowledge didn't shock me, it made me curious. Why would I love words so much yet not have the blatant talent of a born poet? Then I figured it out, I'm not a poet, I'm a storyteller. It was time for me to remember what I'd understood at the tender age of seven. Longer stories were my calling.
So instead of college I chose to work and educate myself through correspondence courses over a five year period. Then, one day, leaning against the countertop in my kitchen, studying my husband's handsome face, the first story was born inside my head. Ideas came at me so fast I immediately ran for my computer and started typing away. I haven't stopped typing since.
I'm obsessed with history. To me, history is magic. So the stories unravel. They are forming in my mind so quickly I only hope I've the ability to keep up with them. I want to write not only about Scotland and Ireland, but about the Native American Indians, Romans, Vikings, Titans and so many more. If you can keep up, I can keep writing!
