Mists of Fate #1
Nancy Scanlon
Releasing November 17th, 2015


Successful matchmaker Brianagh O’Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters...just not her own. She’s convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation―but she didn't expect it to be in 13th century Ireland.


Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she does not want to be there.


Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?


What a fabulous debut!  From the first page I was completely sucked in...and I had no desire to put it down! Bri was such a likable heroine, I really found myself laughing at her reaction to her new "circumstances"!  Nicolas was just...can we say Tasty?  No...ok...quite tempting? The description of Nicolas would make any woman want to travel back into time!

If you follow my blog, you know I'm not really a big historical or time travel reader, but Nancy's writing was so remarkable that I didn't feel lost and the time travel aspect made it so much fun! For a Debut author, you will be surprised at how well written THE WINTER LAIRD is, the humor, the chemistry and the characters make for a perfect read!

In the time since, she managed to earn a degree in English, obtain a graduate certificate in creative writing from the University of Cambridge, and marry the man of her dreams (but she still holds tight to her fictional boyfriends).
Currently, she resides in Puerto Rico with her husband, two children, and two dogs. When not writing, Nancy spends her time reading, reviewing and blogging about romance novels, watching too much HGTV, and taking care of her family.
