Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon
What happens when a twenty-first century business executive is expected to fulfill a prophecy given at the birth of a sixteenth-century seer? Of course, he must raise his sword in her defense.
From 2013 Golden Heart® paranormal finalist Dawn Marie Hamilton comes the second novel in the Highland Gardens series, ‘Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon’, a sexy Scottish historical time travel romance with Highlanders, scheming faeries, a mischievous brownie, magic, adventure, and romance set in 16th century Scotland.

Elspeth MacLachlan, the beloved clan seer, is betrothed to a man she dislikes and dreams of the man prophesized at her birth, only to find him in the most unexpected place—facedown in the mud.
With the help of fae allies, they must overcome the treachery set to destroy them to claim a love that transcends time.

Rolf turned his attention back to Red, the man he had called Boddi. “You are disappointed.”
Boddi grunted but did not answer right away. The tension between them sparked the air like a lightning storm. Finally, Boddi asked, “How came you to be here?” He scanned the village.
She followed his gaze around the courtyard, littered with the bodies of her slain kinsmen. A few Viking carcasses were scattered here and there. Gravel and wet sand soaked up the life’s blood of a village already facing hard times. She blinked back tears. The shreds of her pride

Desperate to save her village from a band of Norsemen sweeping down the coastline, Kaylla
catches her first ray of hope when she discovers one of the pillaging heathens washed ashore.
Perhaps they can use this captive to bargain for the safety of their village. Rolf Bloodhands, sole

easy conquest of their waning village for the life of one man. Instead he teaches them the basics
of defense and combat with the meager weapons they have available. If they fail to stave off the
invaders, the few villagers left will either be killed or enslaved.
With only two days to prepare for an invasion sure to decimate her village, Kaylla is shocked by
her attraction to the hunky Norseman she has enslaved. Who knew fear of imminent death could
drive an innocent woman to explore the oldest sins known to man.
