He is a Scottish Laird who live
in a world of Druid magic and ancient customs, hand fasted to the sister of his
rival clan, MacDougall. Alasdair thought he was doing the right thing trying to
bring peace to the region. But he is murdered on the eve of his wedding. Not
willing to accept his death, his mother, a Druid princess, performs a geas to
keep him alive. But something went awry because, as the last word of the geas was
spoken, Alasdair is trapped in time where he wanders the earth for centuries.
The only one who can bring him back home is his betrothed. He has given up on
ever finding her until she walks into his office in twentieth century Manhattan.
A WOMAN TOO STRONG WILLED
Coira Ainsley is a happy-go-lucky
young woman living in twentieth century Manhattan. Her job as a travel agent
took her all over. She love the work she did and is excellent at it. That was
until she follows her client into his office and finds herself in fourteenth
century at Inveraray Keep in the Highlands of Scotland. At first, Coira thinks a
prank is being played on her until she saw the giant, wearing nothing but a kilt
and a studded leather strap across his massive chest approaching her. Not one
given to swooning, Coira finds herself welcoming the darkness that come over
her as she loses consciousness, without learning that the naked giant is her
betrothed from another time… another place. Will she give in and accept what has
been pre-destined or will she fight to get back to the life she knows and
Loath though he was to admit it, he was susceptible
where she was concerned. She had a lot of the qualities he admired in a woman—beauty,
intelligence, pride, and sensuality. He felt it every time he was within
touching distance of her. He had a difficult time keeping his mind on the
business at hand when all he could think about was pushing aside his plaid and
burying himself inside her.
He didn’t anticipate any problem in that regard. The
tiny pieces of fabric she was wearing as clothing would present no barrier to
his raging cock, just thinking about it had him rock hard. He imagined ripping
off the flimsy fabric that covered her from the waist to her thighs, lifting
her onto his stiff manhood, as she wrapped those long legs around his waist. He
was so far gone in his daydreaming he could’ve sworn he felt her heels hitting
his butt every time he rammed his dick into her. He had to remind himself she
was not for him. She could be the enemy. Why couldn’t he get that through to
his cock? He’d had been too long without a woman.
He vowed to stay away from her as difficult as it
seemed to be for him. He had been looking for every pretext to go to her. He
had to stop because he would find himself doing just what he’d vowed he’d never
do—take an unwilling woman to his bed. He could tell she was unwilling because
all she talked about was going home. He wished he knew how to send her back,
but he didn’t have any idea.

His wife’s body was never recovered, and since that night, he’s been in a depression, both grieving and clinging to the hope that she lives. It’s Christmas Eve, and the depression is especially hard this time of year. He gets only a small measure of relief when he’s near the water that stole her away from him because, somehow, he feels her presence on the beach. His family thinks he’s losing his mind when he tells them he feels her out there, but that is the reason he bought the home where he currently resides. He wants to give her a way home. On this Christmas day, it feels as if his wife is in the home with him. In a fit of desperation, unable to remain in the house, he takes off running toward the beach. As he starts to run, he feels someone running alongside him, but there is no one there when he looks. Thinking he has definitely gone over the edge, he begins running backward, hoping to catch evidence of whomever is following him. And there they were, two footsteps next to his in the sand. He is so shocked by this that he keeps running, looking for the footsteps, but before he can focus on them, the waves wash them away. Running backward, he trips over an obstacle in his path.

Footsteps In The Sand by
Ju Ephraime is a contemporary romance with hints of a paranormal and
ghost story centered around the holiday period of Christmas. Five years
ago, James' wife and love of his life drowned. He's never gotten over
her, and since her body was never recovered, has never found a way to
grieve properly. A part of him still believes that she is out there, and
he sees signs of her around the house that he bought on the beach for
her to come home to. He also sees her in Shelly, a mysterious woman who
washes up on shore and has many of the qualities of James' wife. Shelly
seems like the perfect person to rid James of his pain, but can he
really let go of the love of his live? Is he ready to move on or does he
want to hang on to the past forever, even if it means missing a chance
to be with someone that he could truly love...?
Footsteps In The Sand is a nice seasonal love story that will make you
think about the miracles that happen during the Christmas season. It is
heavy on the sizzle in the romance department, which I enjoyed. It is
also about true love and overcoming those debilitating emotions of fear
and loss and pain. I loved having a main male character that was
suffering and wasn't afraid to show his emotions. Hats off to Ju
Ephraime for depicting that so well.
