The Ghost Ships of Loch Orrthannan
Books by J.D. Hanning
What if your entire family suddenly disappeared and everything about their lives vanished with them? The Traveler's Saga continues with The Ghost Ships of Loch Orrthannan seven years after the first story ends. The Cu-Raeths enter into an alliance with the Bodeccans to defeat the Sidhenar of Loch Orrthannan, resulting in an altered timeline. Brianna Moonspirit must once again travel into Astralmira's past, restore the timeline, and prevent a murder during the infamous Battle of Hodur. She discovers how Merrick Argetlamh really acquired his silver hand, who had it made for him, and his benefactor's betrayal. Secrets, lies and conspiracies are exposed. Some unexpected villains appear and a surprising relationship is revealed.
She offers him another flirtatious smile and tries to coax him into letting his guard down again. She finds his flustered manner amusing, which reminds her of when they met twelve years ago, after the first time she had traveled into the past. He had toyed with her then in much the same way. Overwhelmed with the joy in seeing him again, the thought of getting to know him once more excites her. Clearly, she was indeed successful in arriving before the point in time when they had first met; he obviously doesn't know her. However, despite the brevity of their encounter so far, there can be no denying that a wonderful chemistry exists between them. It would seem that they truly are destined to be together, even if he doesn't know it yet.
"Yes, well . . . I am Merrick of the Muirs, son of Lord Magistrate Bearach of the Maaginen, leader of the Sidhenar Defenses, sworn protector of the people of this land."
"That is quite a title," Brianna replies with a rather seductive smile. "What exactly are you protecting the people from? Meek and defenseless women who travel alone through the forest?"
"You, milady, strike me as being neither meek nor defenseless," Merrick comments.
