Jade Calloway has fallen through time. Is her rescuer friend or foe?
A warm welcome to Sherry Ewing as she showcases a snippet from her hero and heroine's first meeting in her book If My Heart Could See You.
I'm on her blog here with snippet number 5 from The Highlander's Welsh Bride.
If My Heart Could See You
When you’re enemies, does love have a fighting chance?
For Amiria of Berwyck, defeat does not come easily as she watches her home and clan being
ripped asunder. When the very enemy who has laid siege to her home demands her fealty, she
will do whatever it takes to protect her people including a hastily concocted ruse that quickly
begins to unravel. All too soon, she starts to question whether she can forgive herself for
betraying those she has sworn to protect.
Dristan of Blackmore, champion knight of King Henry II, has a reputation to uphold as the
Devil’s Dragon. After his invading army conquers Berwyck castle, he sets out to manage the
newly claimed estate by training its knights in the art of proper defense. At first, everything
appears as it should be, or is it? Betrayed by those he believed he could trust, he must first set
aside his anger before he can make room in his heart for love.
Together they are tied by an unspoken bond. As they begin to rebuild the land and unite their
people, forces beyond their control attempt to tear apart their fragile truce and only time will tell
if love will forever bring them together.

Merciful heavens, what was she to do? His words hung in the air between them, and her
consciousness frantically screamed to find an answer to give him and quickly! Yet, no rebuttal
came to her frozen mind as Amiria stood there in total indecisiveness. She knew she could not
allow him to get too close on the off chance he might recognize her, even though her face was
clean from the grime and mud usually gracing it these days. ’Twas the words he uttered,
haunting her as he had spoken them to her once afore, although she was now in a different guise.
“Somehow, I do not think giving you my name would be in my best interest, my lord,” she said
quietly and took but an instant more to gaze at him afore her eyes became downcast. Her mind
was racing, thinking of only how to escape the predicament she now found herself in with no
horse to hasten her journey.
Dristan gave a soft chuckle at her words. “Mayhap not, but ’twould please me to know it just the
“It matters not to me if you are pleased, so I will keep it unto myself I think,” she retorted

And now, from Sherry Ewing, a bit from her book, To Follow My Heart: The Knights of Berwyck, A Quest Through Time (Book 3)
The knight took her hand and placed it on top of his own, his arm raised high. A jolt of electricity went racing up her arm, much like the feeling she’d get from a shock when she skidded in socks on carpet and then touched something metal. She dared a peek at him, not realizing just how far she needed to lean her head back. Good Grief...the man must be over six feet tall.
He began to move, and the scene reminded her of her beloved Errol Flynn movies. She followed him mutely across a floor filled with straw or rushes. Everywhere her gaze landed, there was some new wonder for her to behold, including the man who gently ushered her through the hall.
She noticed his tunic for the first time. Was it her vivid imagination running a tad wild, or were they dressed in a similar color? His clothing was a far cry from the black getup he had worn when she first saw him on the beach where he had scared her nearly to death.

Love is a leap. Sometimes you need to jump…
After a gut wrenching break up with her fiancé, Jenna Sinclair heads to the coast to do a little soul searching. To say everything is subject to change is putting it mildly. Her world is not only turned upside down, but pretty much torn asunder when she is pulled through a time gate on the beach beneath the Cliff House and transported more than eight hundred years into the past.
Fletcher Monroe, captain of the garrison knights at Berwyck Castle, has wasted too much time pining for a woman who will never be his. When he finally decides to move on with his life and focus on his duties, he is suddenly confronted with a woman who magically appears at his feet. This could either be the best thing that has ever happened to him or another cursed event in a string of many. He soon finds he is wildly attracted to her, but she’s scared to death of him ─ not a very encouraging beginning.
From the shores of California to twelfth century England and back again, Jenna and Fletcher must find a way to reconcile their two different worlds before Time forever tears them apart.

Only For You
Riorden felt Katherine trembling in his arms and was at a loss for what to say. His fury was barely controlled as his eyes swept the interior of his hall, and his temper almost shattered in a thousand directions. He had not felt such raw, unrestrained anger since the last time he stood almost in this exact same place. Was this Karma coming to get him that Katherine had been telling him about?

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that true love conquers all only after the battle is over…
Katherine de Deveraux has it all or so she believes when she begins her life with her husband Riorden. But as she starts to settle into her duties as the Countess of Warkworth Castle, she finds that an easy life is not only difficult but downright dangerous to her well-being.
Consumed with the haunting memories of his father, Riorden must deal with his sire’s widow who just happens to also be his ex-lover. Yet how could he know just how far Marguerite is willing to go in order to have the life she feels they were truly meant to live?
Torn apart by circumstances neither Katherine nor Riorden could ever imagine, Time becomes their true enemy even while Marguerite continues her ploy to keep Riorden at her side. With all hope lost, will Katherine and Riorden find a way to save their marriage and have their happily ever after ending, or will Katherine be whisked back to where Time truly feels she belongs?
