"A delightful fantasy romance"
William MacAlpin prefers working as an emergency rescuer
jumping into dangerous scenarios to rescue trapped
firefighters than serving as a Protector. However, the
Council, through his Uncle Gavin, orders William to make a
critical leap in time to stop escapee Bartholomew from
changing history. He says no until he learns that the
Renegade time traveler plans to go back to the sixteenth
century to kill William's parents.
William journeys back to 1558 where Isabel de Pinze sees
miraculously step out of the water. However, thugs
immediately accost him. With Isabel's help he wins the
battle, but is badly wounded. She manages to take him to
her home where her guardian calls Dr. John Campbell to
at William. John is actually Bartholomew who recognizes
tattoo of a Protector who is most likely coming for him.
William and Isabel fall in love, he must stop Bartholomew
from changing history by protecting his mother, a little
girl living with Isabel's guardians.
MY SECRET PROTECTOR is a fine historical romantic fantasy
that readers of the two sub-genres will enjoy. Though the
audience will need to accept the Protectors and their
species living among mortals, the author binds her
through the plight of the hero willing to die to protect
loved ones. This solid tale will lead to the audience
wanting to learn more about this nearly immortal race
watching the time stream.
