Guest Post with Catherine Bybee author of Highland Shifter

Thanks for having me on your site, As the Page Turns. I’m excited to be here.

I try and float around on blog sites to get a feel for the place before I come up with a guest blog topic. And I thought spinning your blog name would be a fun way to spend the day.

As the Page Turns… Soap operas. Gotta love ‘em. I can’t say I’ve watched a soap opera in years. To give you a hint as to my age, I remember when Luke and Laura hid out in the mall. C’mon, you remember that, too. Or do you? Why do soap operas do so well? Why do they stay on air for years on end?

I think the long and short of it is they’re familiar. We know when we turn on that set that weeks could have gone by and we can still catch up with who is having whose baby, who is actually the evil sister and not the nanny… we get it.

So, Catherine, what in the heck does this have to do with romance? Duah…everything. Those of us who are readers of romance pick up book after book knowing the outcome before cracking the first page. Still we love the ride and some of us doubt enough to flip to the back page just to make sure the hero and heroine end up together. We love the familiar setting of romance. We turn page after page sucking in characters and plot and come back for more. Which I’ll tie right into series romance. Highland Shifter is part of a series. It’s the first part of the second half of a series that my readers demanded I write. They loved my characters of the first three books and didn’t want to let them go.

Neither did I.

So, my soap opera romance this time around is of the kilted, time travel variety and I do hope you’ll take a moment to check it out. Much like a soap opera, you have the opportunity to see characters whose plots dominated the pages of books past, but still get to enjoy the new ride new characters.

Thanks again for having me here today.

Helen Adams has a knack for finding lost objects, but the Simon McAllister she finds isn’t what she expected. The missing California teen is now a grown man—a kilted, sword wielding, Highland warrior.

A mysterious Druid book and Helen’s sixth sense send her to Scotland in search of a missing boy. After being attacked by strange men dressed in medieval garb, a handsome, desirable hero answering to the boy’s name rescues her. No one is more surprised than she to find herself in sixteenth century Scotland. Unable to deny the reality of time travel, Helen discovers smoldering passion with a man destined to leave her.

Simon has lived his Druid life in two very different worlds, two vastly different times, and when Helen practically lands in his lap, he knows his life is about to change forever. There are enemies in California lying in wait for her, and an army in Scotland closing in on his family. Simon is the only person who can protect her. But when she learns his most guarded secret, will she still want him? Can Helen love a Highland Shifter?

Simon stepped closer and felt the heat of her skin. She smelled of the strawberry shampoo she used in her hair. Helen’s hands slid from her hips and fell to the side.

“’Tis time we clear up a few things in your lovely head about me.”

He stepped closer, and Helen, the wise girl, took a step back until her bottom met the edge of the desk. She reached behind her to steady herself and keep from falling.

Like a predatory cat cornering his prey, Simon towered over Helen, watching her body twitch as her eyes travelled over his.

“Really?” Her voice wavered. After clearing her throat, she asked. “Like what?”

Simon licked his lips and glanced at hers. “I’m not evil.” 

“Uhm….” Her eyes never left his mouth while he spoke.

“And I’d never lure a child into my presence.” 

Simon leaned into her, their thighs touched and Helen’s breathing started to quicken. He placed one hand on the table beside her, leaving her very little room to escape should she want to. From the hunger in her gaze, and the heat coming off her body, he didn’t believe she would.

“A woman, however, might tempt me to entice her attention.”
