Synopsis:
Jami – Content with her life working for a publishing house, enjoying her caffeine addiction and her daily banter with best friend Todd. Jami wasn’t one to believe in Destiny. When her world turns upside down just days before her 25th birthday, her beliefs are challenged and time is ripped away. Dozing off in the sun one moment and sitting in a field of heather with a talking hamster the next will rattle any normal girl. But hearing a sexy deep voice and turning to find the Highlander it belongs to will rock anyone’s world!

Devlin- He always looked forward to the festival every year. He loved to see all the hustle and bustle around the keep, what he couldn’t handle was his mother hounding him about finding that “one” to settle down with as the middle brother he still had plenty of time. He escaped daily to do his rounds along the land’s perimeter, but one day he found something or should I say someone he wasn’t expecting. One look, one smell was all it took. He would find out who she was.

Jami- not one to believe in destiny tucked herself into the library for a quick respite from the annual Christmas party quickly turns into the journey of a lifetime. Gazing out the window at the full moon, the world goes hazy and time shifts. Gone are the glittering decorations and dazzling dresses, replaced with Highland warriors, fields of heather, and a tiny talking hamster? Faced with the obstacle of overcoming her fears and embracing her powers, Jami’s destiny is hers to take. Or is it?

I took a seat on the stones and pulled my knees up to my chest, resting my chin and just taking it all in. Moss crept up the stones on the bank, giving way to a lush carpet of grass and wildflowers. Again, I smelled heather, but couldn't pinpoint where it was coming from. Heather couldn't survive in this climate, even next to this little brook. It must be the combination of all the wildflowers' scents mixed together.

My eyelids became heavy. This seemed odd as I’d rested well last night and hadn't been up that long. I sat there, feeling a bit hazy and sleepy, and noticed a small creature venturing up, maybe to drink from the brook? It wasn't a squirrel. The tail wasn't long enough. Maybe a chipmunk, though the markings on the fur weren’t right. This wasn't anything I’d seen before.

I watched it, trying to decide what animal family it could be from, when it looked up at me. It stared right into my eyes. I gawked, my eyes widening when I realized this little creature’s eyes weren't the little black dots I would expect, but a misty gray seeming to swirl as if a fog was contained within them. This little creature winked, and then scampered away.

I shook my head. My imagination was running away with itself again. I attempted to move, but my body had other plans. Instead of finding myself standing, I’d actually lain down. My eyes got heavier the longer I rested. A small nap can’t hurt. I had no pressing work, and the call to Todd could wait. I closed my eyes and let the sun warm my face as I drifted off to sleep.

"Jami," a voice whispered

Startled, I sat up and shaded my eyes.

"Jami, dear."

I scanned the trees, trying to locate the owner of the voice.

"Down here, dearie."

Peeking down, I found that the little creature who had scampered away, was in fact at my feet, gazing at me. I drew my feet up quickly.

"I’m dreaming." I scanned the area again. "Who's there? This isn't funny."

"Yes, dear, ye are dreaming and please quit thinking of me as a creature. I have a name, and it’s Roma."

I stared at this little creature with its round black eyes and fluffy, multi-hued brown fur. I rubbed my eyes. Sure enough, she was still there. "But, how?"

"It's a dream, dearie. Anything can happen in dreams"

"Who or what are you?"

"As I said, my name is Roma, and all ye need to know is I am here to help you. To give ye a bit of advice"

"What kind of advice?" Heck if this was a dream, I may as well play along. It could make for a great story if I remembered it when I woke up.


"Keep an open mind and an open heart. Yer fate is going to show itself to ye soon." Roma skittered away into the trees.
