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.

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.

The Stone Chambers of Putnam County

THE STONE CHAMBERS OF PUTNAM COUNTY inspired my time travel romance story THIS MOMENT, which appears in THE KISS: AN ANTHOLOGY ABOUT LOVE AND OTHER CLOSE ENCOUNTERS. It has since been developed into the novel, HIGHLAND PASSAGE. I live near many of these stone chambers. They have always intrigued me. For my story, I thought they might make good time travel portals. Below are some articles with some background information.

Coming Soon: The Kiss

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.
