A Dream and a Destiny

Sapphire Dream“One of the best time travel romances I’ve ever read.” Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author


Sapphire Dream, a high-action romantic adventure that also happens to be a Scottish historical time travel with a pirate hero (yes, I’m serious) is the first book I ever wrote that got published. It didn’t sell first–The Dark Gate, the first book in my Esri series–was my first sale. But I wrote Sapphire Dream first, entered it in the 2005 Golden Heart contest for unpublished writers, and won! An editor requested the manuscript and I had high, high hopes for my first sale. Unfortunately, she left the business soon after. For two years the manuscript languished on one editor’s desk after another (I know this because I’d get emails from time to time assuring me it hadn’t been forgotten.) Two years later, I got The Call. Except it wasn’t, technically, ‘The Call’ since Nocturne already had me under contract for three of the Esri books by then. Still, selling this book was particularly sweet.

Amethyst DestinyI actually started writing Sapphire Dream several years before I finished it, then set it aside because I didn’t yet have the skills I needed to figure out the whole story. In the meantime, I wrote a couple of other books, and partials of several more–my learning projects–while I honed my skills. When I finally returned to Sapphire Dream, I knew what I was doing. The writing came, the ideas came, and I finally had a book I was oh so proud of. Honestly, I adore this story.

Anyway, Sapphire Dream and its sequel, Amethyst Destiny, were published under my pseudonym, Pamela Montgomerie in 2009 and 2010 respectively. I recently received my rights back for the two books and I’m excited to announce that I’m re-releasing them under my name, completely re-edited, with brand new covers, and at a reasonable ebook price. Both are now on Kindle and will be available on all formats in a few months. Keep an eye on my home page. I’ll announce more order availability there.

These books are connected, so you’ll want to read Sapphire Dream first! From the back cover:

The last thing Brenna Cameron expected when she arrived at Castle Stour on the coast of Scotland seeking answers about a past she doesn’t remember, was to find herself transported to a seventeenth-century pirate ship complete with dangerous crew and a handsome captain who is less than pleased to have her aboard.

Rourke Douglas, captain of the Lady Marie, knows the appearance of this lovely stranger is linked to the prophecy that has haunted his family for years. When the fiery-haired beauty materializes on his ship, courtesy of the sapphire pendant she wears around her neck and a bit of meddling magic, Rourke wants nothing more than to send her back to wherever she came from. But something about Brenna stirs his wounded soul, and Rourke knows he cannot outrun his destiny any longer.

I hope you enjoy these books half as much as I enjoyed writing them. They are truly books of my heart.

    Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours
    take a lot of work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do
    write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share
    my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
