Bio and Links:
With a
passion for historical romance, history in general, and anything Celtic, B.J.
always has an exciting work in progress. Each story offers a blend of romance,
adventure, suspense, and, where appropriate, a dab of comic relief. Carefully
researched historical facts are woven into each manuscript, providing a
backdrop from which steamy romance, gripping plots, and vivid
characters—dashing alpha heroes and resourceful, beguiling heroines you can’t
help but admire—spring to life. A member of RWA, World Romance Writers, Celtic
Hearts Romance Writers, and Savvy Authors, B.J. also writes contemporary,
paranormal, time travel, and romantic suspense.
C.S. Lewis
first captivated B. J.’s imagination in the fourth grade, and her desire to
write sprang from there. Following a career in nursing and child and youth
work, B.J. married her knight-in-shining-armor, and he whisked her away to his
castle by the sea. In reality, they share their century-old home in a small
Canadian town on the shore of Lake Erie with three dogs and a cat. When she is
not working at her childcare job, on her small business, or writing, you will
find her reading, camping, or antique hunting.

Blurb:
No longer content in the shadows of his older
brothers and on a quest to find his destiny, Bryce Fraser’s chosen path is
fraught with danger, passion, and decisions. Can his unspoken love for spirited,
beguiling Fallon be triumphant in a time of war and uncertainty, or will they
both fall prey to the devious plans of a traitorous laird from a rival clan?
Excerpt:
Bryce
closed the gap between them. She heard his footsteps, felt his warm breath on
the back of her neck as he spoke, but didn’t turn around.
“Please dinna be angry with me, Fallon. I
could not bear to think you held me any ill will. This is for the best.” He
gently touched her shoulder.
“Dinna
leave.” She dropped the sack and whipped around to face him, the words escaping
before she could stop them. “Why must you go? Why must you risk your life?”
“You
know why.” He yanked her against his chest and captured her mouth.
But
this time she did not fight his advances. She wrapped her arms around his neck,
responding with equal enthusiasm to his kiss. Her lips parted, welcoming the
sweep of his tongue. As he deepened the exploration, her knees buckled, and she
clung to his tunic as if her life depended on it.
Unshed
tears stung her eyes, but she managed to blink them away. This might be the
last time they would see each other and she suddenly found herself wanting a
memory that would last forever. What she was about to ask was wrong, and could
only lead to heartache. While she knew she should fight temptation with her
last breath, she was only human.
“Join
with me, Bryce,” she whispered against his lips.

    "Unshed tears stung her eyes." That's a great turn of a phrase. Thanks for the excerpt.
