Present Day, Kyle of Tongue, Scotland

Since as far back as Lydia Hunter can remember she has always been drawn to the ruins of Blackthorn Castle and the paintings of a man who was its greatest laird. During her latest visit, Lydia purchases an ancient brooch found within the castleís crumbling walls. After pinning it on, an erie storm erupts and Lydia falls from the castle's wall. When she awakens, she is staring into the very real flesh and blood face of the man she has dreamed of for so long, Lord Damron Morgan!

Blackthorn Castle, 1072

Learning she is to be wed to the fearsome Scot Damron Morgan, Saxon Lady Brianna Sinclair rides off by herself to contemplate a way out of the betrothal. Her horse stumbles and Brianna falls hitting her head on a rock. When she awakens she is no longer just ďBriannaĒ her future soul, Lydia, has traveled back in time to relive her life as Damronís wife!

Damron Morgan, following orders from King Malcolm and King William to marry Brianna Sinclair finds she is a most unusual woman. Her loveliness stirs Damronís passion, and her fiery temper peppered with very strange language and behaviors, fuels his intrigue! Instantaneous recognition of two souls, who were always meant to be together, must fight many outside forces to be kept from being torn apart.

A prequel to sophomore author Sophia Johnsonís successful debut novel Risk Everything, Always Mine will continue Ms. Johnsonís ascend up the ranks of the must read romance authors! Always Mine is not your run-of-the-mill time travel. It delves into the deep rooted passion of two souls who love each other so completely it goes beyond the physical realm. I loved the sparks that fly between the 21st century Brianna/Lydia and the medieval warrior Damron. Damronís befuddlement at Briannaís odd words that he knows are meant to demean him, is hilarious! Time travel fans donít miss Always Mine!
