I’m delighted to welcome romance author Beth Trissel to my blog as she discusses her delicious new release! ~ S.G. Rogers
After untold hours of scheming, dreaming, writing and revising, time travel romance Somewhere in the Highlands is finally launched. Yes, there will be another story in this continuing saga. I don’t know when, but plotting is underway. Somewhere in the Highlands is book three in the series, following Somewhere My Love, and is the actual sequel to Somewhere My Lass. Somewhere the Bells Ring is a hauntingly beautiful Christmas romance.
The Somewhere in Time Series; where the past meets the present.
The idea behind my Somewhere in Time series is that the story opens in an old home, so far Virginia homes (I’m a Virginian with deep roots), and then transports the reader back in time either in the same wonderful old house, or another place entirely such as the Scottish Highlands. As is the case in Somewhere My Lass and Somewhere in the Highlands. Both stories convey the characters to and from 17th century Scotland via a portal in time, all of which is inspired by my fascination with the past. The unifying characteristic of the series is the paranormal/time travel element, but the stories themselves aren’t necessarily tied together, though some are, and will be. It’s the encompassing theme that matters. Doors play a big role in this series. Behind every door lies a secret, an intriguing puzzle to be solved, so these romances are also suspenseful mysteries.
Somewhere in the Highlands: Will the brilliant geek Fergus and lovely but devious Beezus thwart a power mad time traveler wielding a supernatural relic before he kills Fergus’s Highland ancestor?
The answer to that query isn’t as simple as you might think. Somewhere in the Highlands as a fast-paced Sci-Fi Fantasy Time Travel Romance. At this point, the story is available exclusively at Amazon in kindle. If someone is eager to review it and doesn’t have access to kindle please contact me and I will provide you with a .pdf copy.
Blurb: The MacDonalds are coming! When Elizabeth MacDonald (a.k.a Beezus Mac) thrusts a sealed gold box at Angus Fergus amid panicked requests for him to hide the stolen artifact, she has no idea the ancient cloth it contains bestows unearthly powers. Red MacDonald knows and he’s hell-bent on traveling 400 years into the future to claim the charmed relic, even kill for it. Protecting Beezus from his old nemesis is only one of Fergus’s problems.
Before they can stop him, Morley MacDonald, descendant of Red MacDonald, snatches the prize and leaps through the time portal to head the MacDonald clan and kill Fergus’s MacKenzie ancestor. If he succeeds, Fergus will cease to exist. Danger grows in the feud between the MacDonalds and the MacKenzies as the pair, along with an ingenious friend and high tech inventions, returns to 1604 Scotland to face these brawny Highlanders and reunite with kin. Will Fergus overcome his mistrust of Beezus and fan the growing spark between them before they battle Morley? If he waits, it may be too late.~
So far, the series has done quite well. Several titles have won awards and all have received stellar reviews (2008 Winner Preditor’s & Editor’s Readers Poll for Best Romance Novel, LASR Book of the Week, a Night Owl Top Pick…) The less than stellar reviews I must brush off, and onward ho. All authors know what I mean. ~ Beth Trissel
