This is Putnam County, the setting for the present day portions of my book, Highland Passage.
Coming this Summer
What would you risk to find love?
MacKenzie Cooper is through with romance. On her way home from another blind date arranged by her well-meaning sister, she is caught in a snowstorm. White-knuckling it on the winding road home, Mackenzie loses control of her car, crashing into the rocky hillside.
When a rugged Scotsman pulls her to safety, Mackenzie is sure she must be hallucinating. Through the storm’s fury, he takes her to shelter in one of the mysterious stone chambers scattered throughout the county. Snowbound, Mackenzie must wait out the storm with this strange, kilted man who claims to be a Highlander from eighteenth century Scotland. By morning, she not only believes Ciarán MacRae, but has lost her heart just in time for him to kiss her, promise his love—and then vanish.
Unable to forget him, Mackenzie returns again and again to the stone chamber, hoping to unlock the secret that took Ciarán from her. But if she does, she will have to decide whether her fierce feelings for Ciarán are worth abandoning all that she knows to travel through time to find her gallant Scotsman.

This is one of my favorite films for reasons cited. It is strangely magical—as is Joseph Cotten. 😉
A kiss is a simple communication. It can also be an exchange, a betrayal, an assault, a promise, a hope…or it could be a goodbye. The intimacy of a kiss cannot be denied. Whether shared, stolen or simply dreamed of, its recipient will be affected. Thirty-one stories by authors from around the world will tease your imagination as you anticipate ‘The Kiss’ in each weird or wonderful tale.

I’m very excited to be part of this anthology, which will include stories from some terrific authors—including NY Times bestseller Colleen Hoover.
My contribution, THIS MOMENT, is a Scottish time travel romance. Watch for it later in January. Did I mention it was free?
I’ve just submitted THIS MOMENT, my contribution to an anthology called THE KISS, which is coming out in February. THIS MOMENT is a Scottish time travel that I’m planning to develop into a series.
