Somewhere in the Highlands by Beth Trissel

I'm thrilled to welcome back Beth Trissel, award-winning author of romantic historical fiction. Today, she tells us about Somewhere in the Highlands

Highlands. Highlanders. A stolen relic... Bought! :-)

As a keen reader of Beth's novels, I can highly recommend readers to try Beth's wonderful blend of adventure, history and love.

“Never tell me the odds.” ~Han Solo

The motto of the unlikely hero, Fergus, in Somewhere in the Highlands, a fast-paced Sci-Fi Fantasy Time Travel Romance. Untold hours of scheming, dreaming, writing and revising went into this story. Yes, there will be another title in this continuing saga. Don’t ask me when, but plotting is underway. Somewhere in the Highlands is book three in my Somewhere in Time series, following Somewhere My Love, and is the sequel to Somewhere My Lass. Somewhere the Bells Ring is a hauntingly beautiful Christmas romance. 

The idea behind this series is that the story opens in an old home, so far Virginia (I’m a Virginian with deep roots in this historic state), 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.

The Somewhere in Time Series; where the past meets the present.

More about 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?

Well, maybe. Read the story and find out. 

At this point, it’s available exclusively at Amazon, Amazon UK, and all other Amazons actually. The cover is courtesy of my talented daughter, Elise.



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.~
