Sexy Scot Author Insight
Greyson McCaim, from modern New Orleans, is tossed back to medieval Scotland where he meets Lady Marian, daughter of the Earl of Fenwall. Unable to explain his pecularities, Greyson finally decides to tell her the truth.
Writing my first time travel romance, Falling for the Knight, I realized one of the challenges of this particular genre was being able to reconcile the unbelievability of time travel. Frankly, it gets in the way of the romance.
In Sexy Scot, I decided to circumnavigate that awkwardness by having Marian cope with such a claim using humor. Instead of running for the hills, she laughs him off. Marian chooses to believe he's teasing her, refusing to answer her questions sincerely.
This allowed me to develop their relationship while at the same time not quite reconciling the truth which, in my opinion, would be a difficult sell– believing someone is truly from the future.
