Get Swept Through Time with C.A. Szarek

She never believed in magic…

   Claire McGowan, Scotophile and historical romance novel addict, finally saves up enough for her dream vacation to Scotland.
   She never imagines she’ll get sucked back to the seventeenth century while running on the beach—that’s what she gets for exercising when she should be relaxing.

He knows with a harsh certainty magic exists...

   The Fae have taken his brother—Laird of his clan. Duncan MacLeod finds a bonnie naked and confused lass. He’s convinced Claire arrived in 1672 through the Faery Stones—a magical portal he’s been scouring the lands for over the past six months.
At last, he has someone who’s been through the Faery Stones and can help him find them—and get his brother back.
   Duncan promises to help Claire get home, even though his desire to have her wars with his vow.
   Torn between familiarity of the present and what she wants in the past, can Claire help Duncan find his brother and get back to the future? Will she even want to?

CLOVER: How often to you get lost in a story?
C.A. Szarek: All the time! I love to read as much as I love writing! So, I read often and diversely. Sometimes it takes me a while to finish a book since I write almost every day, but I’m always reading something.

CLOVER: What’s the first thing you do when you finish writing a book?
C.A. Szarek: Cry. I hate that I’m admitting that, but it’s the truth. LOL. Then I jump for joy. If I was a drinker, I’d get drunk, but I usually physically jump for joy, and high-five whoever’s close. Then watch way too much TV before I dive into the next book.

CLOVER:  If you were given a chance to travel to the past where would you go and specifically why?

C.A. Szarek: Easy. I would go to Scotland. Probably in the 17th century, like my heroines in this series. That’s a fascinating time in Scotland’s history and the Clan system has always intrigued me. I would love to see it live, even though life for a woman in that time wasn’t always a piece of cake.  

CLOVER: I love that we are in a boxed set together with books focusing on time travel. Tell us a little about the book you have in this set.
C.A. Szarek: My book is about city girl from 2014 who’s fascinated by anything Scotland. Claire is from Texas and goes to the Highlands on vacation. She gets sucked into 1672 by accident when running on the beach, and meets Duncan. He changes her mind about the drive for finding modern times again. Duncan’s twin brother was kidnapped by the Fae, so Claire has to help him find him, and they fall in love along the way.

This was a super fun write for me, and this book is the first of a trilogy, there are two more stories, both of which I adore.
