Caitlin is a modern 21st century American woman. She is 23 living with her brother and best friend in a house that has been in her family for many years. Raised by her grandmother after the death of her parents, she is taking time off from college and working as a waitress at a seafood restaurant. When she tells her grandmother about the dreams she has been having, her grandmother gives her an old book to read "Fates Monolith". Written around 1800 it is the story of Arianna who just happens to be an ancestor of Caitlin's. While the story has her wondering just how much of it is true, she knows that things are not as they seem. The similarities are too many to be put down to chance.
Fercher lives in Scotland in the year 1211. The nephew of Iain who just happens to be the hero of "Fates Monolith" Fercher knows that fate has a plan for him but he is tired of being forced into a life he does not want. When Caitlin and her brother show up in his time along with his missing nephew William, he knows that the girl from his visions is here and that things will not be the same. Will Fercher fight his fate or will he allow things to happen as they are meant to happen? And just what has the wizard Adlin done that may throw all that is suppose to happen to the wind?
Destiny's Denial is the second book in the Mac'Lomain Trilogy. While I totally loved the first book, "Fates Monolith" I also find that I enjoyed the second book as much if not more since it is about a girl that could be any one of us in this day and age. Beautifully put together, the images that Sky Purington leaves you with will have you wishing that you were of the Broun clan and that your own Mac'Lomain would pull you back through time to be with him yourself. Take some time during this hot summer to cool down in beautiful Scotland and see just what will have you wishing you could find such a destiny of your own.

The MacLomain Series, #2
Caitlin Seavey relives the same nightmare every night for three years. Then one day, the dream seeps into reality when an ethereal Scotsman visits. Horrified, she confides in her grandmother who then gives her a two hundred year old novel titled Fate's Monolith. It tells the tale of her distant relative's journey to medieval Scotland and can only be a myth. When Caitlin discovers a family heirloom in the attic she soon learns the book is based on truth.
Chieftain Ferchar MacLomain found what he was looking for. Caitlin. He should have left her alone. For to bring her to Cowal will spell disaster-a foreseen threat to himself, his clan, and Caitlin. As a visionary, it's his obligation to protect her. As a man, he's determined to ignore his heart. Can he thwart his destiny? Or will he forever be a slave to the gods of old.
This novel contains strong sexual content and is recommended for a mature audience.
Please NOTE: This is a re-launch of titles published years ago. The stories have been revised and tightened. And as aforementioned, the sensual heat level for all four has been turned way up.
