Twilight descended too quickly. Struan and Rabbie had yet to return. Was
this a good or bad sign? How long did a reconnaissance mission take? Kendrick
had grown ever more vigilant and followed her to the entrance of the cave
whenever she went out to tend to personal matters.
“You know, I am quite capable of going beyond those trees and boulders to
attend my needs without your supervision. I’ll not run off into the night. Where
could I go when I don’t know where I am?” She goaded him, but could not stop
He gazed at a point beyond her shoulder with an implacable face, and then
turned his dark, penetrating eyes on her. She flinched slightly, but covered it with
a thrust of her chin and returned his stare. He wouldn’t best her in this staring
contest, no matter how formidable his expressions.
As usual, she broke first, “Are you concerned for Struan and Rabbie? Should
they have returned by now?”
He scanned her hair, her face, settling on her lips a bit longer, and then his
eyes raked down her body. His scrutiny did not reveal any of the earlier humor
she’d detected. Why did he feel the need to intimidate her with his stern regard or
more likely, lustful appraisal? She squared her shoulders, readying for another
onslaught of intimidation.
His expression suggested he didn’t miss her challenge, which only seemed
to pique his interest further.
On a windswept cliff above
in 2013, 27 year-old Andra Cameron, the last member of her family, prepares to
scatter her family's ashes to the wind. An earthquake catapults her to the
Scottish Highlands in 1705. She wakes, aching and bloody, to the sound of
horses thundering through the trees. Terrified and with no other options, Andra
accompanies these rugged warriors. She can't deny the undeniable attraction
that ignites between herself and the handsome but gruff Kendrick. Will she
trust him to provide protection in the harsh reality of 18th century San Francisco Bay and
with her secret, or will she find a way to return home to the 21st century? Scotland
Laird Kendrick MacLean and his men, escaping a recent skirmish with their worst nemeses, clan Cameron and their Sassenach allies, are shocked to find an injured, unprotected female in their path. How could she not know her kin and how had she landed in the middle of the wilderness alone? His men suspect she's a spy or a witch. Still, Kendrick will not abandon an injured woman, even if she speaks unusually accented English, and her name is Cameron. Will he ransom her to others or will their closed hearts open to each other? Although he questions her every utterance, this feisty, outspoken woman inflames his desire like no other.

After more than twenty years writing and delivering management and other training programs for modest-sized to Fortune Five Hundred companies, and ten years developing community crisis-intervention training programs, Aleigha turned her writing efforts to her first loves, fiction, and poetry. Her poetry has appeared in numerous anthologies and university presses over the past few decades. Following a difficult period in her life, she discovered solace in romance novels that inspired her to write in this genre. As she says, "who doesn't desire a guaranteed happy-ever-after scenario?" Always interested in the concept of time-travel, she knew her first few stories would follow that theme.
When not writing, her trusty four-legged companion/helper, Strider, accompanies her on sunset walks along the shore. During these quiet walks under an expansive sky, with the whoosh of waves across the sand and her gaze drifting over the rolling sea, her best glimmers of inspiration come to mind. Following the recent discovery of distant Scottish ancestors, she embarked on a trip to the
Highlands. Although she had already developed the
characters for Finding My Highlander,
her trip to the Highlands enriched the
characters and enhanced the story direction. This is her first full-length
romance novel. Aleigha is working on a prequel to Finding My Highlander, and another time-travel novel set in a later
