Flash Back Friday – A Time To Forgive

Using the WayBack Machine, let’s revisit one of my previously released books. Here’s a short excerpt from Book 4 of the MacNicol Clan Through Time series – A Time To Forgive.

Flash Back FridayBree stopped to observe her visitor. The rider had already dismounted from his bike and was removing his helmet, a sleek black orb with a tinted face plate that when worn would obscure his features.

Still standing in the shadow of the doorway, she watched as he set the helmet on the seat of his bike and ran his fingers through his dark auburn hair, releasing his disheveled curls from the dreaded curse of helmet hair. His profile revealed a strong, nearly straight nose, bold cheekbones, and a well-formed jaw.

Bree watched a moment longer as the man unzipped his black leather jacket and tucked his shirt into his faded black jeans. The tight fit of his dark tee shirt revealed the type of rock hard muscles that came from long hours of hard work. He was one nice-looking man.

After she finished checking out the man, she checked out his bike, a sleek black-and-gray Ducati Multistrada. The model looked to be a few years old, but the Italian motorcycle was in mint condition. He obviously took good care of his toys. His Ducati was one nice-looking bike.

She judged her visitor to be in his late twenties, maybe six or seven years older than her. When he started to walk toward the front of the ranch house, Bree stepped out into the bright sunlight and shouted, “Can I help you?”

The man turned with a startled jerk. Squinting, he reached a hand up to shield his eyes from the glare of the sun. “Sorry, I didn’t see you standing there.”

“Looking for someone?”

“Yeah, Breanna Ellers. Know where I can find her?”

Bree walked forward to greet him. “I’m Breanna Ellers.”

The man fished a card from his back pocket and looked it over, then looked back at her. “You’re Breanna Ellers, the animal trainer?”

“Yeah, that’s me,” she confirmed. He was holding one of the business cards her cousin Jack had designed for her and insisted on handing out to everyone he met. Jack also had a habit of leaving them at every pet and feed store in the area, which meant this guy could be anyone.

A Time To Forgive, The MacNicol Clan Through Time, Book 4

A Time To Forgive; Book 4

Welcome to the first day of Autumn, the Fall Equinox. A day that balances the light and dark with the day and night. It’s also the day I’m announcing the release of the fourth and final book of the MacNicol Clan Through Time series, A Time To Forgive. All four  books are now available and you can read them one after another. What a great way to relax with a good book as our nights grow longer, and our days grow colder. Snuggle up.

You got to meet Daniel in Book Three, A Time to Belong, and now you’ll meet his 13th century daughter, Breanna, as she’s swept forward in time and must deal with the fast paced technologies of modern times when she follows her father to the 21st century to escape the ravages of the dreaded MacDonald clan. As luck, or fate, would have it, Alex MacDonald shows up at her door asking for help with his horses, but how can any self-respecting MacNicol ever trust a member of the hated MacDonald clan? The answer may surprise them both.

Sometimes the road to forgiveness is away over yonder . . .

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00064]Alex MacDonald will use charm, hard work, or whatever else it takes to get his skittish Clydesdales working again so he can prove to his cantankerous father that he has what it takes to run the family business. When he goes in search of the best horse whisperer available, he finds Breanna Ellers, the sweetest little Scottish lass this side of Inverness. There’s only one problem; for reasons unknown to Alex, she hates the MacDonalds. Alex isn’t above telling a little white lie to hide his last name, not if it means healing his horses and saving the family business.

Breanna Ellers of the MacNicol clan may be a bit old-fashioned, but her psychic ability to connect to animals makes her one of the best horse trainers in Northern California. She’s reluctant to leave Over-Yonder, the family ranch, but the challenge of working with Alex and his Clydesdales proves too tempting to ignore. When she discovers that Alex is a MacDonald, it’s nearly a deal breaker. She hates the MacDonalds and what they did to the MacNicol clan back on the Isle of Skye. It doesn’t matter that the battle took place over eight hundred years ago; to a woman born in 1308 it’s still recent history.

It’ll take a special kind of magic, and a whole lot of forgiveness, to bring these two ill-fated lovers together—again.
