Good Monday morning!!!
I'm probably one of the few people that look forward to Mondays. LOL
I am at this moment sitting at a coffee shop in Springfield, Missouri called The Dancing Mule! Now that it's summer, I'm on the road visiting with family, writing, taking photos, writing, visiting friends, writing, and oh, yes...writing!
What am I writing? I'm working on the next installment of my Warriors of Destiny series, Her Island Destiny!
Isla MacKinnon is a CH-47 pilot in the United States Army. She loves making jewelry and is on leave in the Orkney Islands attending a workshop on jewelry making. She is taking a break to eat lunch and goes down to the loch to dip her feet into the cool water. She is more comfortable in combat boots but decided to wear cute little sandals that hurt her feet, as all women do. The winds pick up and a severe storm blows in over the loch. The hat that she was wearing gets caught by the wind and blows into the water. She reaches out with some difficulty then decides to wade out to get it. The water hits her just above her knees, holding her skirt out of the way to keep it from getting wet, grabs her hat! The storm has opened up and the rains and winds are fierce. She loses her balance and gets caught by a weird undertow. She is pulled under and loses consciousness.
Cian James is laird of Moal Castle on the Isle of Skye. Fergus MacAlpin, a favorite in King Edward’s court has decided he wants Moal for himself. It is widely known that Cian’s grandmother was from Norway making him not of true Scottish blood, so Fergus challenges him for the keep that is supposed to remain in MacKinnon ownership or be forfeited.
Cian is walking along the loch contemplating his future as laird of Moal and how he can maintain ownership, when he sees a body floating in the water. He dives in and retrieves the body of a woman. This woman is Isla MacKinnon. His beloved childhood home of Maol Castle is secure, or so he thinks….
