Somewhere Book 2

Neil MacKenzie's well ordered life turns to chaos when Mora Campbell shows up claiming he's her fiance from 1602 Scotland. Her avowal that she was chased to the future by clan chieftain, Red MacDonald, is utter nonsense, and Neil must convince her that she is just addled from a blow to her head--or so he believes until the MacDonald himself shows up wanting blood.

Mora knows the Neil of the future is truly her beloved Niall who disappeared from the past. Although her kinsmen believe he's dead, and she is now destined to marry Niall's brother, she's convinced that if she and Neil return to the past, all will be right. The only problem is how to get back to 1602 before it's too late.

The balance of the present and future are in peril if she marries another, and the Neil of the present will cease to exist. An ancient relic and a few good friends in the future help pave the way back to the past, but will Mora and Neil be too late to save a love that began centuries before?

Mora has crossed centuries to find her lost love, Neil, but how can she convince him that they belong together in 1602?



Mora Campbell somehow manages to tumble through a time portal and lands in Virginia in 2009. There she finds a man who goes by the name Neil MacKenzie. Mora is sure that Neil is none other than her lost betrothed Niall. At first Neil doesn’t believe a word Mora says, but sooner rather than later the past catches up to them both in the form of Red MacDonald, who followed Mora through the portal. MacDonald has a long standing feud with the MacKenzies, and he won’t stop until Neil is dead.



Neil soon realizes that everything Mora has said is true and finds himself in a race against time. He must find a way to return Mora to the past before MacDonald finds them. One problem remains. Who will Mora marry; Niall of the past, or Neil of the present? Or are the two men really one and the same, as Mora says? In the short time that Neil has known Mora, he’s fallen in love with her and the thought of her marrying another man is unbearable. Will Neil surrender Mora to Niall, or will fate smile on the lovers and grant them a way to be together?



As a heroine, Mora is simply a delight. Adapting to life in the modern world presents many challenges. I couldn’t help but smile as Mora attempts to make sense of modern technology, fashion, and hygiene practices. Being thrust into modern life could have defeated Mora. A weaker soul would certainly have wilted under the pressure, but Mora possesses a fiery spirit that gives her the strength to face anything, including the dangers presented by Red MacDonald and the passage of time itself.



Neil’s milder personality is the perfect complement to Mora’s hot temperament. He is more than a little skeptical about Mora and her origins when she first arrives. However, once Neil learns the truth, he stands by Mora’s side like a true hero. In order to hold on to his newfound love, he’s going to have to learn to let go of his well-ordered life and take a leap of faith.



Not only is

Somewhere My Lass

a tale of romance, but it is also a story of friendship. Neil’s best friend, Fergus, is one of the most amusing secondary characters I’ve read in a long time. His bright orange hair and obsession with science fiction and technology made me smile throughout the story. Fergus is a friend in the truest sense of the word. He’s willing to follow Neil into the past to lend a hand, and his belt full of gadgets saves Neil’s life on more than one occasion.



I’m a fan of Ms. Trissel’s historical romances, so I was intrigued at the idea that her latest story would include the element of time travel.

Somewhere My Lass

, is book two in Ms. Trissel’s Somewhere series, but it is not necessary to read the previous book to enjoy this story. Once I started reading

Somewhere My Lass

, I found Ms. Trissel had masterfully blended the past and the present in order to create a lovely romance that spans centuries. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a touching tale of love and friendship.
