Are we really the only one?
Universe –that is. Are we really the only world, the only reality, the only “level” of existence? I’ve always been fascinated…or maybe the better word is “teased” by the idea that this isn’t the only plane of reality. Might there be other “worlds” on different planes? Worlds that we just can’t see? If pondered too long, Quantum physics, multi-verse or multi-world theories can throw you into a brain cramp. But it all boils down to a simple theory: why wouldn’t it be possible that there are perhaps infinite numbers of universes, and everything that could possibly have happened in our past, but didn’t happen to us, has occurred in the past of some other universe or world?
Hannah MacPherson, my heroine from Eternity’s Mark is either blessed or cursed—depending on how you look at it—with a destiny linking her to another world accessed by mystical portals.
The hero Taggart’s alternate universe mimics quite a few traits of our own but also holds a few surprises. The following blurb sums it up.
A sexy Scot. A mystical inheritance. What could go wrong?
Veterinarian Hannah MacPherson knows better than to believe in love at first—or any—sight.
True, being swept away by Taggart de Gaelson to the vast Scottish castle she’s mysteriously inherited is uber-romantic. The legacy is totally legitimate, and its messenger is big, broad-shouldered, and smokin’ in more ways than one…
Too bad Taggart forgot to mention that Hannah’s also a Guardian of magical dragons called the Draecna. And as Hannah’s sworn otherworldly protector, Taggart is honor-bound not to lay a hand on her, no matter how close he gets…
But turning duty into pleasure is just too tempting. And for Hannah, mastering her powers and saving two worlds from evil will be way easier than showing one hardheaded warrior that breaking all the rules means they are eternally made for each other…
What do YOU think? Are we really the only world? I don’t think we’re alone…
Now I’d like to take a moment to thank the awesome Suzanne Rogers for having me back at her wonderful blog. I’m honored to be the guest of such a talented author.

Maeve’s other books:
Can love prevail over the dark magic of a woman scorned?
The last time Latharn MacKay walked among his kinsman was in Scotland of 1410. Sensuous and charismatic, all the women wanted him, but none could capture his heart. Latharn’s charm became his curse when a dark sorceress didn’t take rejection well. She snared his soul into a crystal globe until the one woman destined to be his love whispered his release. Now all Latharn has to do is find her and guide her to him without speaking a word.
One of the youngest archeologists in St Louis of 2010, Nessa credits one thing for this achievement: the recurring dream of a heart-stopping Highlander since the summer she turned eighteen years old. Little does she know, he’s not some fantasy cooked up by her subconscious. He’s a trapped soul determined for Nessa to end his six centuries in hell.
An average day in the life of an immortal Fury?
Flex powers. Locate evil. Administer justice.
Until Ciara’s goddess mothers convince her to seduce a brooding mortal and bear the man a gifted child. All she has to do is swap places with his betrothed. A simple task−become the seductive wife, bear the man a child and train the young one in the Ways. Once the boy reaches seven years of age, they’ll swap her back with the wife Faolan thinks he selected and Ciara can resume her job of rousting wickedness from the world.
Faolan MacKay’s advisors plague him daily about his matrimonial duties as laird, dragging prospects from across the Highlands: plump dowries attached to each one.
Faolan’s lost everyone he’s ever loved. He’d rather go straight to the fiery pits of Hell than down the wedding aisle. Out of desperation, a plan takes seed. He’ll select a wife he can ignore. There’s just one problem with this foolproof theory. Nobody ignores Ciara.
Against his better judgment, he’s enthralled with the woman and to Ciara’s surprise, this strange thing called love burns hotter than her hunger for vengeance.
At the end of the seven years the ruse is up, all will return to as it was. Can the bond of love overcome the mandate of the ultimate powers?
