Title: Fiona


Author: P.L. Parker


Genre: Time Travel Romance


Book Blurb:


Time shifts in ever-changing motion. But can love survive the ravages of time? Set against the backdrop of Ancient China, Fiona finds herself transported to a time of barbarian warriors and marauding nomads from the northern steppes. She discovers a new way of life in the arms of the handsome warrior Kellach, a man of noble stature among the Celtic settlements ringing the great Taklamakan. Desperate to return to the present while struggling against her mounting feelings, she finally accepts her fate, exulting in the rapture and delights to be found as Kellach’s mate. High Priestess Voadicia wants Lord Kellach for her own—and only the outsider Fiona stands in her way.


Excerpt:


The crowd parted as Alstrom strode through the courtyard. Regrettably, Voadicia was at his side. Briga trailed behind, sadly out of place. They stopped in front of the table where Kellach and Fiona were seated. Smiling, Alstrom added his best wishes to the newly wedded couple. His demeanor was gracious and warm, and Kellach glimpsed a flicker of the man he once was. Briga stepped forward and added her blessings as well, presenting them with a gift of a hand-embroidered wall hanging. Voadicia merely stood there, a sour look on her face, clearly displeased with the proceedings. In truth, Kellach would rather she had stayed away. Her presence fostered a blight on the festivities.


“Walk with me, Kellach,” Alstrom commanded, “whilst I make my greetings.”


Kellach stood, his eyes on Fiona. “If you will excuse me, little wife, I will return shortly.” For Voadicia’s benefit, he leaned down and kissed Fiona long and hard, eliciting gasps of delight from everyone, except Voadicia.


Alstrom and Kellach strolled through the crowd, nodding and smiling and stopping to visit with all. Voadicia turned her attention to Fiona. “Well, little one,” she remarked scornfully, “it appears you have done well for yourself. I would not have thought Kellach would stoop so low.”


The barb stung, as she had intended. Fiona sat up straighter, unwilling to allow this viper to ruin her day.


“I do not think Kellach has stooped so low for anyone,” she snapped, “present company excepted.”


Voadicia’s eyes narrowed, her lips tightened. “So the little cat has claws,” she said loudly, to no one in particular. “Too bad that is all she has. Everyone knows Kellach only wed her to give her status in the clan. For myself, I would want more than that.”


Fiona’s chin lifted, her fury blazed “If Kellach wed me for my clan status, and I am reasonably sure that is not the case, I am content. At least he thought to give me something worth having.”


Snickers erupted and Voadicia’s gaze swept the crowd, looking for the offenders.


She turned back to Fiona, her face made ugly by her contempt. “Do not mock me, little wife of Kellach. You would not like the consequences.”


Tanith stood up, preparing to defend Fiona. But before she could say anything, Kellach walked out of the crowd. Knowing Voadicia too well, and sensing trouble, Kellach had returned, overhearing her remark.


Casually, he moved to stand behind Fiona, his hands resting lightly on her shoulders. “Do you wish to bless our joining, Voadicia? Or is there something else you want to say?” His voice was soft, belying the fire in his eyes.


Voadicia dropped her own eyes, willing to bide her time until the moment was ripe. Kellach was too powerful by far to risk a confrontation now, but her influence grew daily. Soon she would move against her opponents, Kellach among them.
