Do you remember the old television show, "Quantum Leap"? Sam would leap into other people's bodies in
history, and Al was able to help him figure how to fix things with his not so
trusty computer, Ziggy. I loved that show! But what bothered me was that Sam
never had control over where he went, and Al was only a holographic image.
So when I decided to write a time travel romance, I knew I wanted two things to
be true. First, the traveler would be able to "leap" anywhere in history she
wanted, as well as back to her own time. Second, whoever helped her would
actually be there with her when he popped in to talk to her, and so that's what
happens in ON HIGHLAND TIME.
Diana's job as a Time Weaver, Inc. agent is to go back in time and fix what the
Disruptors have changed. While she's there, the only way to communicate with the
agency is through Go-Lucky, her rather short, designer-wearing handler and the
only male with the ability to time travel. He provides Diana with up-to-date
information on the changes in the Timestream. He also provides her with support.
TWI doesn't have a "Ziggy" to help them figure out who's causing the problems,
but what they do have is each other and their particular paranormal abilities.
From old Arthur's research and ability to download that directly, to Zania's
amazing work with clothing, to veteran Javier's physical training, the staff
support the agents like a computer but with a lot more empathy. And the agents
themselves support each other—for the most part. Having five completely
different female personalities with different abilities and backgrounds, does
cause tension on occasion, but also great teamwork.
For this particular mission, Diana goes back in time much farther than she has
ever gone in her two years with TWI. Another agent usually handles the older
time periods, but this particular disruption is a bit elevated, so as the most
experienced, she is sent in. The problem with joining a small highland clan is
that everyone knows everyone else, so blending in and keeping her distance
becomes impossible. Go-Lucky's sporadic appearances help her.
Go-Lucky also provides some much-needed comic relief for her, which on this
particular mission, is important. His own quest it to find the love of his life,
and like Al on "Quantum Leap," he is ever in search of that perfect lady. Unlike
Al, he wants the woman of his dreams to be the only woman in his life.
Unfortunately for him, it's hard meeting people, especially when his job is to
cover five time periods at once. Six if he counts present day.
Of course, Go-Lucky doesn't always play by the rules and may just nudge Diana in
the wrong direction when it comes to Torr MacPherson, the big-hearted highlander
she must ensure dies in battle. Then again, Al didn't always steer Sam in the
right direction either, but like Go-Lucky, he always stood by his man, or woman
in this case. And this time, Diana needs all the help she can get because things
aren't going as planned…at all.
For fans of
sexy Scottish Highlanders who know how to treat a woman like a lady.
When someone changes history, affecting the future, Diana Montgomery, the
most experienced agent of Time Weavers, Inc., travels back to 1306 Scotland to
change it back. Her mission, to find the culprit and ensure a minor clan chief
dies in battle as he originally had.
Diana is well-prepared to infiltrate the small MacPherson clan. What she’s
not prepared for is Torr MacPherson, the ruggedly handsome warrior with a kind
heart and a steadfast loyalty—the Laird she’s supposed to ensure dies.
